Which Glasses Suit My Face Shape? How To Choose The Perfect Blue Light Blocking Glasses For You

What’s the Best Frame to Suit My Face Shape? 

Are you in search of the perfect pair of blue light blocking glasses that would best suit your face shape? Empire & Co has you covered, follow our guide below and we'll help you find the perfect frame.


Firstly, let's identify the 5 main facial shape categories:

  • Round
  • Square
  • Heart
  • Triangular
  • Oval

 

Now let’s talk about the distinctive features of each face shape and what type of frames you should ideally go for.

 

Round Shape Face:  This face shape is characterised by the softer angles with wide cheekbones with equally wide forehead and jaw. Frames that are as wide as they are tall give an appearance of a slimmer face and would greatly compliment this face shape. To add definition and downplay the fullness of your cheeks, look for glasses with strong angles and lines.  Think: Rectangular frames, cat-eye frames, D-frames, angular and geometric frames.

Empire & Co’s Top Picks For You :

 

Square Shape Face: Has more angular lines with equally wide cheekbones, jaw, and forehead. Select frames that are proportional to the length and width of your face. To create a harmonious and natural look, try the rounded frames to soften the hard angles in your face.  Add contrast to your face with oval-shaped and round glasses.

 Empire & Co’s Top Picks For You :

 

Heart Shape Face: Is widest at the forehead and then gradually narrows through to the jaw with a high cheekbone. Winged-out glasses frames that are wider than your forehead with rounded bases would look great on you. These frames would create an illusion of a smaller forehead, drawing the attention away from it and complementing your narrow chin.   Try out frames that are bottom-heavy, oval-shaped, rimless or light-coloured, and frames with low-set temples.

  Empire & Co’s Top Picks For You:


Triangular Face Shape: The opposite of a heart-shaped face, is widest at the jaw and gradually narrowing through to the forehead. Focus on finding a mirror-opposite frame to compliment your face. These glasses are usually bold on top and light on the bottom would suit you best.  Try out D-frames, aviators, and cat-eyes glasses.

  Empire & Co’s Top Picks For You:



Oval Face Shape:  Has slightly wider cheekbones and a gentle narrowing at the forehead and jaw. The most versatile face shape of all which means you can have fun with most types of frames. Choose a frame that would highlight the strong points and downplay the weak points of your face. Look for frames that are as wide as the widest part of your face which is around the eye area.  Square, rectangular, and geometric frames suit your face shape best.
