Choose your mount according to its physical characteristics
Here we are in the game for those who are really bad at geometry and who have not been able to determine their face shape, or who simply do not necessarily have a face that assimilates to a known shape (#coucouribery ).
If your face has a particular characteristic, you should take advantage of it and use the diversity of frames for glasses to play with and either accentuate it or minimize it. Question of balance as Francis would say.
Here are some features and related tips you might be interested in.
Strong jawline: Choosing the right glasses can be a good way to camouflage a strong jawline by emphasizing them. We therefore recommend here thick frames or flashy colors, to attract attention.
Thick eyebrow: If you have rather thick eyebrows, go for rather thin frames, to create balance. Otherwise, if you have rather thin eyebrows, it may be interesting to take thick frames.
Prominent chin: It is important to choose your glasses according to the shape of your face, and if you have a prominent chin, it is better to avoid frames that accentuate it. To add width to the bottom of the face, preference should be given to frames with a thick or widened lower edge.
Broad forehead: Generally, broad forehead rhymes with inverted triangular face. We will try here not to accentuate the width of the top of the face and rather to give width to the bottom of the face. For this, try frames that are wider at the bottom edge. A word of advice, light colors will be appreciated, in fact bright colors risk accentuating the top of the frame and therefore the top of the face.
In any case, prefer discreet frames, light or pastel in color, rather rounded and not very thick. Avoid anything strict and geometric, overly imposing frames and the butterfly shape. Don't accentuate the peak effect by choosing glasses that go lower than your cheekbones.
The chef's special random advice
