Glasses and Face Shapes

Glasses have always been an object viewed under a rather negative light. People who are bespectacled tend to be called "geeks", "nerds" or "four eyes". But in my perception, glasses are a superb accessory. It doesn't mean that one cannot be fashionable if one wears glasses. Some celebrities who rock their glasses include:

Tina Fey
Amanda Peet
Alicia Keys
Still, it is crucial that you find a pair of glasses which suits your face shape. So here are a few guidelines on how to find your perfect spectacles.

Round Face
Kelly Clarkson
If you have full cheeks and a rounded chin, go for rectangular and horizontal styles which can make faces appear longer and thinner. You can also choose upswept frames that draw attention to the top of your face. Avoid small and short frames that accentuate face length. 

Square Face
Sandra Bullock
If you have a square face with a strong jaw line, try oval and round frames. You can also go for butterfly shaped glasses. You should avoid geometric and square shaped frames that accentuate the angles of your face.

Oval Face
Eva Mendes
If you have an oval face with high cheekbones, then you are a lucky person. You can go with almost any frame shape. However, do not get frames that are too large for you features. That would drown out our face.

Heart Shaped Face
Scarlett Johansson
If you have a broad forehead and wide cheek bones that narrow to a small chin, go for bottom-heavy frames that add width to your lower face. Do not choose top-heavy frames that pull attention upward. You should also avoid frames with decorative temples that accentuate your broad upper face. 

Glasses come in so many shapes and funky colors. It's real fun to play around with them. All you have to do is make sure that the frame shape goes with your face. Pair your glasses with some makeup and chio clothes. Then you're officially ready to walk down Fabulousity Lane!
