Measure your face size
Looking in a mirror, hold a ruler horizontally across your face. Measure in millimeters the distance between your left and right temples.
Now that you have determined your face size, let's narrow down which styles are suitable for you.
Square Square shaped faces are generally the same length and width across the face, they are characterized by a broad forehead and a strong jaw line. The best shades for square faces are round or oval shaped - this helps round out the sharpness of the face for a more balanced look. Check out: Brody, Chelsea, Audrey, Hazel, Daisy.
Oval The spoilt face! Oval faces have gently rounded, fairly even features. Slightly wider cheekbones and gentle narrowing at the forehead and jaw, this shape suits all styles. Check out:All styles.
This face shape has soft angles with slighter wider cheekbones and equally wide forehead and jaw. The best shades are rectangular or rounded. Check out: Audrey, Brody, Chester, Frankie, Marley, Daisy.
Heart Heart-shaped faces, sometimes called triangle, are widest at the temples and narrowest at the chin. Look for cat-eye styles and rounded edges. Check out: Florence, Hazel, Brody, Frankie, Daisy, Chester.
