Round Your face is a circle with soft curves with length and width in the same proportions. Rectangular, angular frames to lengthen your round face DO NOT wear round frames and try a clear bridge to widen your eyes.

Square Wide brows, well defined cheekbones and prominent jaw lines define a square face. Circular, aviator, oval Lengthen your face with frames that are wider than they are deep
Oblong Your face is longer than it is wide, with straight cheek lines. Triangular, Circular, or Deep Rectangular frames Use frames that are taller than they are wide.
