Selecting the Best Eyeglasses for Your Facial Shape
When buying new eye frames, you have quite a few things to consider. One is the shape of your face. If you have a round face, try rectangular-shaped frames. For an oval face, look for frames that are as wide as the broadest part of your face or a teardrop shape. If you have an oblong face, choose deeper frames that add width to your face. If you have a square face, try a narrow or oval frame.
Colour, Size and Style Considerations for Your Frames
As far as colour goes, you should try to match your facial skin tones as best as possible. We may not wear the same colour clothes every day, but your eyewear colour should complement your outfits. Look for a frame shape that lifts your face on the sides, follows your eyebrow curves and brings out your natural colours so it doesn’t make you look pale. Whether or not it’s a plastic or metal frame is a personal preference. Plastic is non-allergenic, but a lot of metal frames are also non-allergenic. If this is an issue, please talk to our staff at time of purchase. There are many colours, shapes, sizes and styles available to suit your personality, lifestyle and budget.
