In selecting glasses, you want to be sure that the glasses fit properly and look attractive. A very important aspect of the glasses is that the lenses are centered between your eyes. That fit will provide you with the best possible vision. Also, you want to match the size of your face to the overall size of the frames. The line of the glasses should flatter your face. Is your face long or is your face wide? Maybe your face is balanced. Whatever the shape of your fact, you want the glasses to create the image of a well-balanced face. You will want your glasses to line up with your eyebrows. Choose the best fit in terms of lenses. The lenses should not be too little or too big for your face.
Color is very important in terms of selecting eyeglasses. You should try to select colors for the frames that flatter your hair and skin color. For example, if you have green eyes, you can select a metallic frame that brings out the green in your eyes. There are metallic frames such a cooper, bronze, gold and silver. The metal frames come in matt and shiny. Also, consider your wardrobe. What are you favorite colors? You will want your glasses to complement the colors in your wardrobe. You can be daring and pick colors that contrast with your eye, skin, hair and wardrobe. The contrast will bring attention.
You want to select glasses that enhance the shape of your face. Faces can be angular or contoured. Glasses can complement the bone structure of your face whether angular or contoured. Look in the mirror and examine the bone structure of your face. If you look carefully, you can see that your bone structure is angular or contoured. Whatever the shape of your face, you want to flatter the shape of your face. For an angular face, select glasses that mirror the bone structure. For a more contoured face, you will want softened glass framed.
Faces come in different lengths. Some faces are longer and other faces are shorted. There is an ideal proportion of 3 to 2 in terms of length to width. You are trying to work towards the ideal and want to create an illusion that your face has the relationship of 3 to 2 length to width. To achieve this look, you will want to select a narrower frame if you have a shorter face. A narrower frame will add length to your face. If you have a longer face, then you will want to create the view of a shorter face by adding length to your face with wider frames.
You want to create the illusion of a balanced face. You want a rounder looking face. Things to consider are the jaw and forehead. You are trying to balance a wider jaw and a wider forehead. Another face shape is the glass shape that is wider at the bottom and narrower at the top. This is sometimes called a pear shape face. Or you can have a straight up and down face. Whatever the shape of your face, you want to achieve balance. This can be done by the selection of frames. You can select frames that are narrower at the bottom and wider at the top. This will create a stronger jaw. The opposite is also true. You can select frames that are narrower at the top and wider at the bottom to create a forehead. Or you can select straight line frames.
The spacing of your eyes is another consideration in selecting eyeglass frames. The ideal spacing between is the eyes is one eye space. Your actual eyes may be closer together or farther apart. You then can compensate by the selection of frames. You can give the impression or wider or closer together eyes. If your eyes are wider, then you should choose an unobtrusive bridge. If you want to increase the lengthen of the eyes, then chose a thick bridge.
The size of the lenses are important for more than appearance. The size of the lenses are a personal comfort selection. Some people prefer large lenses because they can see better with larger lenses. While other people prefer the smaller lenses because smaller lenses have a more popular look.
