Ever wonder why all the newest magazine’s have their models in round glasses but hardly see anyone in the real world with round glasses?

That’s because the shape of your face can determine which shaped glasses suit you best.

To begin with, you need to know what shape your face is.

Standing in front of the mirror, hold your hair back and take a few seconds to see whether you see a rounder or squarer facial shape. Take into context the areas
around your chin, cheekbone and forehead to help distinguish your facial shape
Here is a guide to make it easier for you next time you step into Mezmereyes.

Oval Face Shape
An oval facial shape is considered “the best” for a spec wearer as it has a proportioned shape top to bottom. A rectangular shape frame is the most suitable for an oval shape. Make sure it’s a couple millimeters out of your cheekbone but not to narrow from top to bottom to ensure a proportionately fitting eyeglass. Also a rectangle shaped eyeglass or sunglass with its edged corners will also offset a oval face nicely.

Square Face Shape
A square facial shape will have a more defined angle around the chin and forehead, while the width and length of the face have roughly the same proportions. Finding the right frame for a square face involves finding a sunglass or eyeglass with softer corners & where the length of the lens from top to bottom is not more then the width of the sunglass.

Long Face Shape
A slim/ long face shape is longer than it is wide and has a long, straight cheek line. To make an oblong face appear shorter and more balanced, try frames that have more depth than width. With todays larger sized frames this gives plenty of selection. Frames with detailed sides also add width to the face.
