The trick is to pick glasses with an angular frame shape to balance your features. Square glasses that are slightly bigger than your face shape will help to make your round face appear slimmer. Semi-rimless glasses that is lighter on the bottom creates the illusion of length, giving your face proportion too.

A general rule of thumb to follow is to choose glasses shapes that are the opposite of your face shape. Just like how round faces will look better with squarish glasses, those with a square face shape will look good in glasses with rounded edges. Soften your features with round glasses and look instantly more youthful!

For long face shape

Squarish glasses help to balance out the length of your face so choose one that is slightly wider than your cheekbones to make your face appear wider and more proportionate. Glasses with a thick frame can be trendy too and because it looks slightly bulkier, it balances out your face.

For heart shaped face

Having a heart shaped face means that your forehead and cheekbones are wider than your chin area. So, choosing glasses of an oval shape that is slightly bigger than your face will help to soften your features without accentuating your protruding cheekbones. Semi-rimless glasses will work for you too as it takes attention away from your stronger facial features and keeps your look light.
