If you have an oval face shape, we consider you one of the lucky ones! Oval shaped faces can pull off about any style since their face proportions are naturally balanced. People with this shape tend to have long faces, high cheekbones, and a more narrow chin compared to their forehead. Oval faces should avoid frames that may be too big or small in size to not throw off the balance.

However, rules are meant to be broken! Don’t be afraid to experiment with bold shapes or colors because confidence is all you need to pull it off!

Heart-shaped faces tend to have a broader forehead that narrows all the way down to the chin. A heart shape is also described as an upside-down triangle, where it is thicker at the top and thins down as it reaches the bottom.

When it comes to heart-shaped faces, it is all about the forehead! The biggest objective is to take away the focus from the width of the forehead and broaden the appearance of the chin.

We encourage you to pick glasses with a curved or cat-eyed edge to draw away attention from the forehead.
