We’ve all been blessed with a face shape, that determines what frame would take our style up that notch. Today, this guide will help you become the master of the trick. But before we start, you’ll need a few things in order to know your face shape.
Things You'll Need - Mirror & Dry-Erase Marker
What to look for? Fuller cheeks and rounded chin area
Round faces are subtle & have great edge for striking balance with angular/geometric frames. Which means a rectangle or a cateye shaped frame is the best suitor for you. Also, it’s a classic. So, they’ll be high on compliments and even higher on followership from the get-go.

What to look for? Strong jawline & cheek bones
If you have a square face, frames like rectangle or square won’t go too well with your contours. Rather try & buy round, oval or pilot eyeglasses to complement your face. These shapes will also make the face look a little less boxy.

What to look for? Prominent forehead and narrow jaw-line
