Face Shape Guide

This fit guide includes 5 common face shapes that will help you choose the perfect pair of Gleam Glasses!

  • OVAL

    If you have an oval face shape, you’ll find that most frames look good on you. Highlight your cheekbones and brows by choosing a frame as wide as your face. Cat eye, geometric, round, and oversized eyewear are especially effective. Superstars with oval faces are Beyoncé, Jessica Alba, Rihanna, Blake Lively, and Eva Mendes.

    Recommended styles:
    Jane, Mae, Michelle


    Square jaws can be softened with glasses that have rounded edges such as round, cat-eye, and horn-rimmed frames. These styles complement angular facial contours. Beauties with square faces are Zoe Kravitz, Jennifer Aniston, Salma Hayek, Sandra Bullock, and Angelina Jolie.

    Recommended styles: Grace, Katherine, Ynes


    As their name suggests, diamond-shaped faces have strong angles and sharp contours (think high cheekbones, pointy chin, squared jaw). Oval frames, especially thick rims balance out these features well. Lovely ladies with diamond faces are Anna Kendrick, Viola Davis, Yvette Nicole Brown, Garcelle Beauvais Nilon, Tyra Banks, and Shilpa Shetty

    Recommended styles: Celia, Ada, Maya


    If you have a round face, opt for rectangular, square, or wayfarer-style frames. Cat-eye and horn-rimmed glasses also work because they widen the upper area of the face in proportion to the lower. Glamorous stars with round faces are Selena Gomez, Gabrielle Union, Emma Stone, and Priyanka Chopra.

    Recommended styles: Ruth, Nellie, Simone


    Your face is heart-shaped if you have a wide forehead and pointed chin. Balance this out with frames that are wide at the bottom. The best glasses for heart-shaped faces include aviator, browline, oval, round and oversized varieties. Elegant ladies with heart-shaped faces are Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington, Kourtney Kardashian, and Penelope Cruz.

    Recommended styles: Susan, Bessie, Frida
