Heart-shaped faces are wider at the top and taper towards the bottom. It is one of the most versatile faces to have. When choosing spectacle frames, keep away from frames that are wider than your face. Rectangular frames work well with heart-shaped faces as the width of the frames balance out your narrow chin. The Woodgeek Entrepreneur rectangular framed eyeglasses are perfect for you. You can also opt for the Geek round frame glasses as this will take attention away from your narrow chin and accentuate the corners of your eyes.
People with round shaped faces should opt for eyeglasses with sharp angles as this will elongate the face and make it look sharper. Your ideal pair of eyeglasses will be more in width than in length. Wider frames give the illusion of a slimmer face. Rectangular and square shaped frames work best for you. Try the Entrepreneur rectangular frame glasses and the Minimalist square frame glasses from Woodgeek Store.
People with oval shaped faces are the luckiest as most frames suit their face. An oval shaped face is pretty much proportionate so the only thing to keep in mind while choosing eyeglasses is to maintain the natural balance of your features. Round, square or rectangle - all spectacle frames suit an oval face. Take your pick from the Entrepreneur rectangular frame glasses, The Geek round frame glasses or the Minimalist square frame glasses from Woodgeek Store.
People with square-shaped faces should choose frames to round out the sharpness of their features. Eyeglasses with round or oval shaped lenses will give a square shaped face a more balanced look by evening out the squareness of the face. The Geek round frame glasses or the Entrepreneur rectangular frame glasses will look best on you.
Oblong shaped faces are long and narrow with few angles. An oblong face works especially well with wider eyeglasses as they will make your long face appear shorter and wider. Try frames with more depth than widths like the Geek round frame glasses and the Minimalist square frame glasses.
