How to Choose the Right Eyeglasses for Your Face Shape and Coloring

07/24/2015

Before visiting Eyes On You, a Washington State-based optical shop, you should check out these tips. For a large portion of us, the most critical part of picking eyeglass frames is what they look like on your face as opposed to the popular belief that eye health is the leading factor when using frames.

You could attempt to try on every pair of eyeglasses in the store to figure out how everyone looks, although narrowing down your decisions ahead of time can spare you a great deal of time and irritation. You just need to determine your face shape and shading, and comprehend which eyeglass frame styles and colors would look best on you.

Matching Eyeglass Frames to Face Shapes

You ought to consider three fundamental focuses when picking an eyeglass frame for your face shape, as indicated by The Vision Council:

Eyewear ought to rehash your own best element (for example, a blue edge to match blue eyes).

The frame shape ought to appear differently in relation to your face shape (i.e. If you have a square-shaped face, round frames may look better on you).

The frame size ought to be in scale with your face size.
Likewise, while most faces are a blend of shapes and angles, there are seven essential face shapes: round, oval, elongated, base-down triangle, base-up triangle, jewel and square.

At Eyes on You Seattle, we offer a myriad of frames for every face shape - we’re not just an optometry clinic. We offer trendy, luxury frames as well!

Color Analysis

The Vision Council's three keys to color analysis are:

All individuals have either cool (blue-based) or warm (yellow-based) shading.
Everybody looks best in his or her own particular shading base.
Eyewear color ought to supplement individual shading.

The principal figures that determine the best color palette are the shades of the skin, eyes and hair.

Skin. Skin tone is the prime component in deciding frame coloring. All compositions can be categorized as one of two shading bases — blue (cool) or yellow (warm).

A cool composition has blue or pink connotations, and a warm appearance has a "peaches and cream" or yellow cast. Olive skin is viewed as cool in light of the fact that it is a blend of blue and yellow. In the United States, cool, blue-based appearances are more basic than the yellow-based warm compositions. Around 60 percent of the populace are "cools."
