Every face is uniquely different. When it comes to finding glasses frames to match your shape it can leave you feeling a little overwhelmed. Thankfully, there are great tips out there for finding the perfect match and knowing which face shape you are is a great place to start.
Generally, you will either have a round, oval, square, or heart shaped face, though some rarer shapes can fall into what’s called a ‘diamond’ face shape. If you happen to have this shape, then you have one of the most desired shapes around, which suits most glasses frames. Actress Megan Fox has a diamond face shape, which was reported to be the favourite female face shape of all time. So if you have this shape, lucky you! Here are some tips and tricks on finding the glasses which really suit your face shape!
Listen to the experts (and the non experts!)
Whatever the topic, it always pays to listen to those who know more than you. Ask the assistants in your local opticians, as they will have been trained to know about certain frames and shapes. They are likely to be totally straight with you about what works and what doesn’t.
Aside from the experts, you should also ask your close friends and family, although they have less knowledge than the experts, they will give you a natural and instinctive opinion on what works on you and what doesn’t. Once you have advice from the experts and honest friends, you can put them together to get a pretty accurate roundup of what sort of style and shape you should go for.

Glasses aside, you can check out celebs with the same face shape and use them as a comparison for hairstyles, jewellery and even make-up tips! But above all, you can see what glasses they are wearing and see for yourself what looks good. Here’s just one example of each:
