How to Choose the Perfect Pair of Reading Glasses for Your Face Shape


Selecting the right pair of reading glasses isn't just about vision correction; it's also about enhancing your facial features and personal style. This guide will help you find the perfect pair of reading glasses for your unique face shape.

Understanding Your Face Shape:

Before delving into styles, it’s crucial to understand your face shape. Typically, face shapes are categorised as oval, round, square, heart, and diamond. Here’s a quick way to determine yours:

Oval: Balanced proportions with a slightly curved jawline.

Round: Full cheeks and a rounded chin with few angles.

Square: Prominent jawline and forehead with angular features.

Heart: Broad forehead and cheekbones with a narrow chin.

Diamond: Narrow forehead and jawline with cheekbones as the widest part of the face.

Frame Styles for Every Face Shape:

Oval Face Shape: You're in luck! Most frame styles will complement your face. Try angular frames to add some contrast, like rectangular or geometric shapes.

Round Face Shape: To add definition, opt for angular and square frames. These will help elongate your face and provide a striking contrast.

Square Face Shape: Soften your angular features with round or oval frames. These shapes will add balance and soften the lines of your face.

Heart Face Shape: Aim for frames that are wider at the bottom. Oval or round frames can provide a nice balance to your face.

Diamond Face Shape: Highlight your cheekbones with cat-eye frames or glasses that have detailing on the top half.

Colour and Texture Matter:

Beyond shape, the color and texture of your frames play a vital role. Choose colors that complement your skin tone and hair color. Textures can add an extra element of style – think matte finishes or glossy looks.

Comfort and Prescription:

While style is key, comfort and the right prescription are paramount. Ensure your reading glasses fit well without pinching behind the ears or slipping off your nose. At Baxter Blue, we provide a wide range of magnification options to suit your needs.
