No need to be a fashion expert even if you want to find eyeglass frames that look great on you! We have got the guide.right here! All you have to do is follow our lead and we will get you through unscathed.

There is no such thing as too much emphasis on the right kind of eyeglass frame. With the right frame, your whole look can take a 360 degree flip, both in a good way or bad.

This is why it is crucial to make the right call. When done right, your eyeglass frame can truly.be one of the many things that can help bring that amazing personality of yours to the fore.

So here is how you can make the (right) judgement call.

Face Shape

Knowing your face shape is the first step.to picking out the right kind of eyeglass frames. Still confused? Fret not, we have for.you covered. Check out our guide to determine your face shape here, and you will be done with your first step.

Round Face:
Square or rectangular eyeglass frames are wider than a round face. As a result of this, such frames can enhance your face by making it appear slimmer and longer. This, in turn, ends up adding balance to your round features, making them seem symmetrical.
Frames to Avoid: 
Rimless frames, round frames and small frames. Such frames will end up accentuating the roundness, making your round face look even rounder and not as flattering

Oval Face: 
A frame with a strong bridge and that are wider than the widest part of your face makes for the best kind of frames for an oval face. If they are geometric in shape then all the more better.
Frames to Avoid: 
Overlarge frames that end up covering up more than half of your face should be avoided. Such frames will throw off the natural balance and symmetry of the oval face.

Square Face: 
Pick frames that sit high on the bridge of the nose and help soften your face as a whole look best on square faces. Try out oval or round eyeglasses as these will help balance the face out and add a thinner appearance to the angles of a square face.
Frames to Avoid:
Do not try out angular or boxy eyeglass frames. This is because they will sharpen and draw attention to your angular features, thus adding more bulk.to.it.

Diamond Face: 
Eyeglass frames that sweep up or are wider than the cheekbones make for the best frames for a diamond face shape. These frames.include cat eye frame glasses and oval frames. This is because such frames will accentuate your cheekbones and delicate features.
Frames to Avoid: 
Again, avoid boxy and narrow frames. You do not want to accentuate the width of your cheeks or draw attention to your narrow features do you?

Heart-Shaped Face: Try using frames that balance the width of the forehead with the narrowness of the chin if you have a heart shaped face. Such eyeglasses with bottom heavy frame lines help add width to the narrower part of your face. When you decide to use round eyeglasses or square eyeglasses that have curved edges, you will end up drawing attention away from the broadness of the forehead.
Frames to Avoid: Say no to any style or color that draws attention to the forehead.

Here is a major tip that can help you decide the face shape you should choose: opposites attract.

Eyeglasses with contrasting elements to your natural facial contours help bring symmetry and balance to your prominent features.

Frame Colours

Your face shape isn’t the only thing that can help determine what kind of frame to pick. Your skin tone can actually help.you pick the right kind of colours too.

Skim tone sets the tone for high fashion frames and the right kind of colours. Here’s a guide.to picking the right kind of.colour according to.your skin tone:

Warm Skin Tone
People with a warm complexion have a yellow, bronze or golden cast to their skin. If you are one of them then you need to stay away from contrasting colors such as pastels. Try to avoid white and black frames too. Instead, go for frame colors like browns, gold or honey, beige, and olive green.

Cool Skin Tone
Do you have pink or blue undertones to your skin? Well then, you have a cool complexion. Say yes to colours like silver, black, dark tortoise, pink, purple, blue, mauve and gray and say no to the ones that can possibly wash you out.

The Lifestyle

Eyeglasses should be able to adapt to the kind of lifestyle you lead. The good thing is that because of the sheer variety available on can easily find an eyeglass match when it comes to their lifestyles.
