Aspects to consider in choosing graduating glasses

For many of us, apart from having a successful upgrade in our lenses, the choice of frame and the look on your face is able to match. Today there are a lot of frames and eyeglasses that have been a mode complement as we cherish above all because we want to use daily, or when we practice sport.

Choose frames for eyeglasses

To do this you must pay attention to three aspects when choosing an eyeglass frame that suits your face shape.

  • The glasses should accentuate your best personal property (such as a blue frame match blue eyes).
  • The frame shape should contrast with your face shape.
  • The frame size should be in scale with your face size.

Selecting frame glasses according to the shape of your face

Because most faces are a combination of shapes and angles, there are seven basic face shapes: round, oval, oblong, triangle base down, stay bottom-up triangle, diamond and square.

Here we have detailed each of these face shapes and frame types work best for each person, based on our experience and professionalism. We recommend you the best frames to remain according to the shape of your face.

Glasses frames for round faces

Round faces look good with angular narrow eyeglasses which lengthens the face. A round face has curved lines of latitude and longitude in the same proportions and no angles. For a round face appear thinner and longer, try the narrow angular glasses frames to lengthen the face, a lighter bridge that widens your eyes and frames that are wider than deep with a rectangular shape.

Glasses frames for oval faces

The oval face eyeglass frames must be at least as wide as the widest part of your face. An oval face is considered the ideal shape because of its balanced proportions. In order to maintain the natural balance of the oval, looking for glasses frames that are equally wide as (or greater than) the broadest part of the face, or walnut-shaped frames that are not too deep or too narrow.

Glasses frames for long faces

A long face is longer than it is wide and has a long line on the right cheek, and sometimes an elongated nose. To make it appear shorter and more balanced, try to buy an elongated face frames that have more width than depth, decorative or contrasting temples that add width to the face or a low bridge to show the nose shorter.

Glasses frames for lower triangle-shaped faces

The faces in the shape of a triangle with the base down look great with glasses with color tones that details on the top half of the frame, or cat-eye shapes. A triangular down basis face has a narrow forehead and extends the areas of the cheeks and chin. To add width and emphasize the narrow upper third of the face, try frames that are too with color and detailing on the top half or try cat-eye shapes.

Frames for prescription glasses with a triangle top-shaped faces.

Faces with the shape of a triangle base up need frames that are wider at the bottom, with very bright colors. Also graduating glasses or semi-mount are good choices. This form of glasses has a very wide top third and small bottom. To minimize the width of the top of the face, try frames that are wider at the bottom, very bright colors and lighter materials or rimless glasses (which has a light, effect because the lenses are simply held in place by a pair of screws without material surrounding frame).

Glasses frames for diamond shaped faces

Diamond-shaped faces need frames with lenses that give details or distinctive front lines. Diamond-shaped faces are narrow at the eye line and jaw, and have wide cheekbones that can be loud and dramatic. This is highly unusual. To emphasize the eyes and soften the cheekbones, try using frames detailing or distinctive brow lines, or try with glasses without frames or oval shapes and cat-eye.

Glasses frames for square faces

Square faces need frames with lenses that soften the angles of your face, narrow oval lenses. A square face has a strong jaw and a wide forehead, plus the width and length in the same proportions. To make the A -square face look longer and to soft the angles, try narrow frame styles, frames that have more width than depth and narrow lenses.

Glasses frames according to complexion

There are several important points to consider are:

  • Everyone has either cold color (blue-based) or warm color (yellow-based).
  • Everyone looks better in your own base color.
  • Colored glasses should complement personal color.
  • The main factors that determine the best selection of colors are the colors of the skin, eyes and hair.

Skin color is the primary element in determining color. All combinations fall into one of two color bases – blue (cool) or yellow (warm). A fresh complexion has blue or pink shades, and a warm complexion has a “peaches and cream “or yellow color. Olive skin is considered cool because it is a mixture of blue and yellow.
