My top tip when buying glasses is online is always cheaper than buying in a store plus no chance of being up-sold something you don't want. We have all been there.
What shape of glasses do I need?
With the endless designs of glasses out there on the market, it can be overwhelming to choose the right design to suit your face. The best way to find the perfect frame shape is to ensure it compliments your face shape. Some examples are
- Square-shaped faces should work with more of a soft round frame Like oval glasses
- Round faces should opt for square or rectangular frames.
- Heart-shaped faces should have a rimless or a smooth, thin rim as this will complement your features best.
What colour glasses suit me?
If you are struggling with what colour to opt for, then looking through your wardrobe can help decide on the colours and shades you like to wear. Once you have the colour pallet, you can either pick colours, neutral shades such as black, white, and grey or you could even choose the colour which is opposite on the colour wheel to compliment your overall look.
If you do not want to draw attention to your glasses, then a rimless or half-rimmed pair of glasses will make them less noticeable when someone looks at you. Choosing the right colour frames and glasses can be quite a fashion statement.
The things to think about
Not many people realize this, but some of the extra additions that your glasses have could affect your glasses and lenses' overall look. Coatings such as Anti-glare put a blue look on the lenses when the sun or light hits the lens. It is not very noticeable, but some people find it off-putting when talking to people.
Another extra addition to taking note of is having a bifocal. I think it is worth mentioning that your lens will have a line along the lens in line with your lower lash line. This is normal, but the line will be visible. Ensure your glasses fit properly and allow for adjustments.
Hopefully, with this guide, you will be able to pick a pair of glasses that will suit your face shape by choosing a frame that compliments your features. Your glasses' colour can make a massive difference in brightening your face and can make you look more awake and vibrant. whereas thick frames on a small face can hide your natural beauty.
I hope you have found this guide useful in helping you choose the right glasses for you.
