Knowing your face shape is a great asset when it comes to selecting frames. During the past few weeks, I’ve been trying to help you learn how to use your curves and angles to find the styles that suit you best and make you look amazing in your new pair of shades.
Today, I’m going to look at the very distinguishable heart or triangle-shaped faces. They are broad on the forehead, wide on the cheekbones and narrow and small on the chin. This face shape is prominent in wide-eyed ladies but less common in guys.
Who has a heart-shaped face?
Naomi Campbell, Scarlett Johansson, Madonna and Lisa Kudrow.
If this is your face type, you should aim at choosing a frame which isn’t too wide (as wide as your face is enough) or bold in appearance. Frames which feature wide lower edges with no straight lines along the top are a good choice.
You should go for cat-eye styles, bottom-heavy frames, rectangle, retro square or rimless frames which are light in colour. Some people recommend aviator frames for this face type but I would discourage you from using them as they only imitate the shape of your face, instead of balancing it.
Here you are some suggestions to emphasize your charming face features!
