Round faces have a soft, circular shape with proportionate width and length and are devoid of visible angles.
What glasses suit my face? A round face shape needs a frame design to make it appear narrower and to give more definition to the face shape. For the best eyewear for men and women with round shaped faces try angular narrow eyeglass frames (like cat-eye shapes) to lengthen the face. Frames with a clear bridge and rectangular frames that are wider than they are deep also can be good choices.
This sunglasses shapes will add sharpness, highlight your cheekbones, and overall make your face look more contoured.

A square face has a very strong jaw line and a broad forehead; the width and length are proportionally equal.
What glasses suit my face? To make a square face look longer and soften its angles, try narrow frame styles with more width than depth. Curves are your best bet at balancing your features! For the best eyewear for men and women with square shaped faces choose either round or oval shaped glasses to balance the face and make it look slimmer.

An oval face shape is considered to be the ideal because of its balanced proportions. Oval faces are gently rounded with fairly balanced features and a jaw that tends to be slightly narrower than the forehead.
What glasses suit my face? Basically, any type of eyeglass frame will compliment your face shape because of its natural balance between forehead, cheeks, and chin. Pick statement shapes that maintain the natural balance of your face. Even so, if we must choose, the best eyewear for men and women with oval shaped faces are geometrically square or rectangular - frames that are as wide as / or wider than the broadest part of your face or walnut shaped frames that are not too deep or too narrow.

Heart-shaped (sometimes called "triangle") faces have wider foreheads and narrower jawlines and chins. The heart shaped face is the most common.
What glasses suit my face? The best eyewear for men and women with heart shaped faces are frames with shapes that are wider at the bottom, because they minimize the width at the top of your face and bring the overall look back into balance. Round or curved edged glasses are bound to flatter your face shape, as they will draw the eyes away from a high forehead. Thin frames and rimless frames also are good choices.
For further assistance, in our luxury eyewear boutique we can offer you in-store guidance and advice on frames that will suit your face shape best. Book your appointment at our Bucharest showroom HERE.
Face shape isn't the only factor that determines which frames will look best on you when choosing your glasses. Your skin tone also plays an important role. Regardless of the color of your skin, skin tones are categorized as either "cool" or "warm."
A cool complexion has blue or pink undertones, and a warm complexion has a mild yellow cast. The same applies for hair colors.
Everyone looks good in black frames but why don’t we go further and have a little fun.

If you have a cool skin complexion avoid colors that make you look faded and instead go for frames that are silver, black, dark tortoise, pink, purple, blue and gray.
If you have a warm skin complexion avert contrasting colors such as pastels. White and black frames are not flattering either. The best frame colors for you are light tortoise, browns hues, gold or honey, beige, and green shades.
