How to Choose a Frame For Your Face

Face shape with Frame with spectacle fitting

You should consider three main points when choosing an eyeglass frame for your face shape:

  1. Eyewear should repeat your personal best feature (such as a green frame to match green eyes!).
  2. The shape of the frame should contrast with the shape of your face.
  3. The size of the frame should be in scale with the size of your face. But the recent trend is such that the spectacles are over-sized.

Also, there are seven basic face shapes: round, oval, oblong, base-down triangle, base-up triangle, diamond and square. Although the face is usually a combination of different angles and curves, see if you can identify a predominant feature that characterises your face.
