Find your Perfect Fit: Matching Eye Glasses to Face Shape

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder (see what we did there?). This is especially true for eye glasses. Choosing a pair of eye glasses is a big deal, not only because they assist with your vision but they also are a large focal point on your face. Many people—including you—will be looking at them every day.

Sometimes it can be difficult to know what types of frames look good on your face and pick a single one in the countless options available. But before you get too overwhelmed, Mather Vision's opticians have broken down this process into a simple guide to help you choose the frames that are best for you. Read on to learn what face structure you have and what styles pair well with that shape before purchasing a pair of eye glasses.

Face shapes v. Frame shapes

Oval Face

Oval faces are considered the ideal face structure because their features are very symmetrical. They are longer than they are wide, with the jaw being slightly smaller than the forehead and cheekbones.

Your frames: Since your face is very narrow, we suggest choosing glasses that are as the same size as the widest part of your face. You can choose ones slightly wider, but make sure they are relative to the size of your face and don’t overwhelm your features.

 

Round Face

Round faces appear to be the same shape everywhere, and look similar to a perfect circle. They typically have soft, soothing features as opposed to high cheekbones or pointed chins.

Your frames: You want to look for frames that make your face seem narrower. Try out a pair of glasses that are slightly angled, or are wider at the top than the bottom. Rectangle shaped glasses will look especially good on you.

 

Heart Face

Your most prominent feature is your beautiful, pointed chin. Heart-shaped faces typically have a widow’s peak at the top of their forehead, and the widest part of their face is the top-third.

Your frames: Try to look for glasses that are wider on the bottom than on top, which will create symmetry on your face. You can also pay special attention to rimless frame styles, since these look best on your face shape.

 

Square Face

Square faces have long, straight cheek lines, and the sides of their face appear to be the same width from their forehead to cheekbones. Your jaw is strong, and appears more horizontal than pointed. Your face may appear to be the same length as it is wide, or have a more rectangle look to it as well.

Your frames: Frames that are round or oval will look amazing on you. They will create an interesting shape on your face that will catch people’s eye.

 

Diamond Face

The widest part of a diamond-shaped face is the cheekbones. Your forehead and chin are narrower in comparison. This face shape is a rare and unique find!

Your frames: Since your face is narrow by your eyes, choose a pair of glasses that highlight your eyebrow shape. For women, look for cat-eye frames that have a dramatic shape near the top of the frames. For men, oval and rimless glasses will look best on you.
