Face types

Round Face:

If you have a round face with width and length in same proportions then, to make your face look longer and thinner, narrow frames are recommended.


An oblong face is elongated and long. To make the face appear shorter or more balanced, one should try frames with top-to-bottom depth. One should choose decorative and contrasting temples to add width to the face.

Base-Up Triangle:

The face is normally wide at the top, so try frames that minimise the width on the top. Frames with a wider bottom, light colours and materials, rimless frames give a light effect to the temples.

Square Face:

This type of face possess a strong jaw line and broad forehead, with length and width proportional. To make such face look balanced and longer, and to soften the angles, narrow frame styles with more width than depth and narrow ovals are the most suited.

Oval Face :

An oval face is considered to be the ideal shape of face because of its balanced proportions. To retain the natural balance of the face, one should look for wide frames or walnut-shaped frames that are neither too deep nor narrow.

Base-Down Triangle:

This kind of a face generally has a narrow forehead that is widened at the cheek and chin areas. To enhance the upper third part of the face and add width, its recommended to try frames heavily accented with colour detailing on top-half or cat eye shapes.


The diamond shaped face is among the rarest found shapes which are generally narrow at the eye line and jaw line, and cheekbones are held high. To highlight your eyes and cheekbones, frames with detailing or distinctive brow lines, narrow styles and more depth are recommended.
