If you’re wondering how to choose glasses for diamond face shapes, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve covered everything you need to know in this blog post, such as the common facial features of diamond face types, a list of flattering frames for you to choose from, features to avoid, and colours available. Find out more below.

Characteristics Of Diamond Face Shapes

There are a few signature features of a diamond face shape, including a slim forehead and full cheeks. You’ll also notice that the jawline and chin have about the same width.

Because of these features, the diamond face shape is much more angular than any other face shape, creating a very defined look. Fortunately, this makes it much easier to choose a flattering frame for this face shape.

If you’re choosing a frame for a diamond face shape, we’d suggest picking a bolder shape with a distinct top-heavy proportion.

Suitable Frames For Diamond Shape Faces

Are you ready to learn how to choose glasses for diamond face shapes? We’ve listed the most flattering styles to complement this appearance below.

1/ Oval Frames

When it comes to choosing flattering styles for diamond face shapes, oval frames seem to be a popular choice.

Since a diamond face shape is quite sharp and angular than other face shapes, oval frames can be used to overall soften your look. This provides a nice contrast to your facial structure, which creates a satisfying balance.

2/ Cat Eye

If you’re hunting for some specs with a little more attitude, you can’t go wrong with cat-eye frames - especially if you have a diamond face type.

These glasses inpacticular are great for diamond face shapes because they have a stronger top portion - with the signature shape extending past the eyebrows. This specific feature helps to balance the facial structure and soften those angles.

Not to mention, the bold style will be sure to turn heads and catch attention for all the right reasons.

3/ Round

Another great choice for a diamond face type would be round frames, specifically because it provides a flattering contrast to the face structure.

And they’re a really versatile style too - with plenty of modern and vintage options to choose from. This means that it’s much easier to find a unique style that best reflects your personality.

Features to avoid

There’s also a few notable features to avoid when you’re looking for glasses to suit diamond face shapes. This includes…

● Any narrow styles, as this won’t compliment a slim forehead.
● Oversized or undersized glasses, as this won’t suit the proportions of the face.
● Glasses that fit uncomfortably or awkwardly on your face.

Colours Available

Once you’ve chosen a flattering style for your diamond face shape, you can now focus on choosing the right colour.

Fortunately, this step is very straightforward. Try steering towards colours that complement your eye colour or skin tone. If you have hazel eyes, you might consider grey or clear frames. Or, if you have green or blue eyes, consider brown, blue, or white frames.
