 Find the right style glasses to suit your face?

Glasses are a personal choice, colour and style but I am going to give you some guidelines you might like to take to consider.

First step is to find out the shape of your face. The best way to do that is to tie or pin your hair off your face and sit in front of a mirror. Look at the outline of your face, is it round, oval, rectangle or a heart shaped? When choosing your frames, you need to consider your colourings as you do with your clothes.  Choose a colour that will flatter your skin tone. Check where the glasses sit on your nose.  If you have a long nose the bridge of the spectacles should sit lower down to make your nose seem shorter. If you have a short nose the bridge should sit higher. Your eyes should be in the centre of the lenses.

Square Face

You will have a wide forehead and your cheekbones are in line with your jaw. Look for lightweight rounded or oval frames. You need to avoid any square or rectangle shapes, which will emphasize the angles on your face.

Rectangle Face

You will have a long, narrow face with a squarish chin. You need to give the illusion of widening and shortening the face while softening the jawline. Choose a wider lightweight frame which will counteract a narrow face and close- set eyes. Avoid angular frames.

Heart Shaped Face

You will probably have a broad forehead and cheekbones, which taper down to a small chin. When choosing a frame, bear in mind they should not extend beyond your temples. Rimless frames are an excellent choice and they are usually lightweight as well.

Round Face

Your face will be round and soft and you should be looking at frames that are slightly wider than your face. This will make your face look smaller. Square or rectangle frames will balance out a round face. Avoid round shapes and full rimless styles.

Oval Face

A balanced oval face is the most versatile face shape there is. You can go for almost any shape and concentrate on getting the right colour for your skin tone.

    Great advice! I’m about to choose another pair of glasses but only as my last gorgeous, £321 pair have fallen apart too quickly.

    Do check for robustness too when selecting. I tend to put mine on my head and my lovely frames just weren’t up to it.

      Rosemary, check out specsavers I have just bougght two pairs for £228. It was buy one get one free and that included the lenses all I had to pay was for the anti scratch on both pairs. One pair that I bought have flexiable arms which would work well in you are always taking them on and off and the other pair are bright read and frames were only £45
