It’s a match – fundamentals for finding the perfect pair of glasses
As already established, when looking for a pair of glasses, you have to make sure that the shape fits to your face. With so many different styles out there it is challenging to find the best suiting pair of glasses for your face. Even though every face is unique, there are basically four different shapes to go by. Therefore, we distinguish between oval, angular, round and heart shaped faces. To discover what shape best describes your face; we have listed characteristics of each shape and found compatible glasses from our collection to go with them. So let’s find your new eyecatcher!
Oval face – Every style is possible
Is your face rather longer than wider? And are your cheeks the widest part of your face? Then you have an oval shaped face and are one of the lucky people that are able to wear any style of glasses. You can rock any shape, no matter if it’s cat-eye glasses, round pilot ones or if they have rectangular lenses. You can simply try on any style while always looking fabulous; so take advantage of your face that was made to wear glasses by adding the perfect eyewear accessory to your outfits.

Heart shaped face – Cupid’s favorite
When you look in the mirror and can make out a heart on your face then you might not only be hit by cupid’s arrow but also have a heart shaped face that indicates a wider forehead, distinctive cheekbones and a small chin. So when it comes to choosing glasses you have to be careful that you don’t make your forehead stand out and instead find a pair that makes your chin less pointy. We therefore recommend choosing round or oval glasses to give the face a gentle touch that compensate for the chin and forehead. With this little tip, we are sure you will find the right glasses that will make your heart skip a beat.

Angular face – the specialist for edges
Are your forehead, cheeks and jaw around the same size? Then you belong to the people with an angular shaped face. To not lose your facial features you should get round glasses that put emphasis on your features while also adding a little bit of delicacy. In addition, cat-eye and the so-called pilot glasses also work well with your face – we love an edgy look.
