The Best Glasses For Round Face

Firstly, it is virtual that you determine if you have a round face in order to pick out the best glasses for yourself. Start by taking a tape measurer or a flexible ruler and begin to measure the distance between the centre of your hairline to the pointiest point of your chin. Once you have measured this, take your tape measurer and measure the distance between the highest point of your left cheekbone to the highest point of your right cheekbone. If you have found that the distance between the two cheekbones is higher than the distance between your forehead and chin then this means that you may have a round face shape.

What shape glasses look best on a round face?

If you have a round face shape, you should avoid picking out rounder shaped frames as these may emphasise the curves and size of your face shape, and if this is something that you want to avoid then not picking out glasses which are rounded is the best option. If you want to create the illusion of a more longer and angled face then you should go for square frames. Square frames are the most commonly picked out frame shape for those who have a round face. This is because it adds balance to your face shape, and helps make your face shape appear slimmer and longer.

Can round faces wear round glasses?

When choosing eyewear, try to choose styles and hues that accentuate rather than obscure or contrast with your face. Wearing round-shaped glasses will only extenuate the rounded shape of your face, so it is best avoided. You should, however, choose frames with sharp, straight corners and bold lines. These will provide angles and provide contrast to your face's round facial shape.

Try to avoid wearing round frames in general since they will enlarge and bend your face which you want to try and avoid. Oversized glasses are also a good option when picking out glasses for a round face too, this helps give the illusion of a smaller face - saying this also means that picking out glasses which are too small will definitely not be flattering for those who have a round face shape.
