There are numerous considerations to check out when choosing a frame. The initial factor to consider is your face shape. You ought to also consider your hair color, and skin tone. Furthermore, consider what you will be using the frames for, such as basic uses, reading, or sport. Ultimately you must consider exactly what sort of material you like best for the frame, and the lenses.

The first thing to consider when choosing a frame is your face shape. There are generally seven various face shapes, and different frames look best on each different shape. Take a look at this video for an aesthetic explanation of how to establish your face shape:

Now that you understand what shape your face is, what frame is the most flattering?

Oval. Oval faces are symetrical, and are longer than wide, which makes them the easiest to discover frames that are flattering. Almost any frame looks excellent on oval faces.

Square. Square faces have strong jaws and broad foreheads, and are in proportion to one another. A square face looks best with frames that soften the angles of the face.

Round. Rounded faces have soft foreheads and chins, without any angles. A round face looks best with frames that will include angles and add definition to the face. Rectangular frames balance the gentleness of the face. Strong colors are also an excellent option.

Heart. To balance out a heart shaped face, pick smaller sized frame designs without detail, and a lower set temple. Rectangular, square, and aviator frames will certainly all work with this face shape.
