FAQs

Does face shape matter for glasses?

The face shape guide is a good starting point when you are buying new glasses. For example, round frames flatter sharp facial features and help add contrast to square face shapes. But it is nothing more than that - a rough guide or reference to choose frame shapes. For example, no two “round face shapes” are similar, so the glasses which suit them vary greatly. You can select any frame which you like on the basis of its colour, shape, style, etc.

There are a few pointers which can help you identify your face shape. For example, square face shapes typically have a wide forehead, cheekbones and jaw, with a sharp jawline. Refer to the points above to identify which face shape you have. Remember, it is not an exact science, just a rough guide!

Big glasses can help make your face look smaller. While they are often called oversized glasses, don’t go by the literal term. A great rule of thumb while selecting oversized glasses is to make sure they don’t touch your cheekbones. The upper rim should just about reach the eyebrows, but not exceed them. The most important part is that they should be comfortable, and not slip down your nose constantly.

Every face shape is beautiful, regardless of skin tone, spots or any other features. If you want to add balance to your soft features, consider getting frames with sharp angles, like rectangular glasses. Cat eye glasses with a sharp upsweep are also a great choice. Glasses which are wider at the top, like the “square” shape will also add a great contrast.

In terms of wearing glasses, oval face shapes are believed to be the most versatile. Most frame shapes suit them.
