An estimated 64.3% of adults wore prescription eyeglasses in 2016, so the need for glasses is constantly growing. There are thousands of different glasses out there for you to choose from, too. If you have a square-shaped face, you may find it difficult to find the best eyeglasses for your face shape. But fear no more! This article is here to help you out.
Your square-shaped face falls with the likes of other square faces like Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, and Sandra Bullock. So, if you’re ever really struggling, take a look at this star-studded lineup and see what they wear. While what they wear may not be your personal style, you can at least get an idea of what kinds of glasses you should be picking out.
If you’re at the optometrist’s office and don’t have the time to pull up a photo of one of the above celebrities, there are a few things to remember. First, you need to make sure that you do, in fact, have a square face. Take a look in the mirror and see if you have rounded edges to your face. If you’re finding that to be the case, you probably have a round or oval face instead of a square one. If you have a strong jawline, a broad forehead, and a square chin, you have a square face.
Next, if you do identify the square shape, head over toward the oval and round frames in your optician’s office. Since a square face is so sharp, the round and oval edges of the frames will soften your face. The balance of the round and straight edges will also make your face look a little longer than it actually us.
Finally, if you think your face is too square, try and divert other eyes away from the strong lines. Wear frames that have a pop of color to get people to look at the glasses instead of your face shape. Blue, black, and pink frames are perfect for brunettes. Coral, red, and green frames are perfect for blondes. Blue, black, and other dark colors are perfect for people with black hair.
Finding the perfect eye wear for your square face isn’t as hard as it may seem. Take a look at a few of the tips listed above when heading to your eye doctor.
