Cosmetic Consideration While Buying Eyewear

Cosmetic Consideration While Buying Eyewear

Face Shape, Hair and Eyes

In most instances, the shape of the frame selected should balance the shape of the face, just like a vertical striped shirt balances the appearance of a short or wider person.

A person whose eyes are set close together in comparison to the total width of the face will want to choose eyewear that does not draw attention to the center of the frame. Low-set, thick, dark-bridged frames will make such an individual look as though there is hardly room for the frame to sit on the nose. Instead, this person should choose a frame with a clear bridge but with distinctive upper temporal areas.
