Let us first focus on the type of basic face shapes :-
Oval- Oval-shaped faces feature foreheads that are as wide as the cheekbones. The face narrows from the cheeks to the chin, creating the oval shape.
Round–Also called circular faces, round faces are widest at the cheekbones. The cheekbones do not taper down to the chin as with other face shapes.
Heart Shaped–Heart-shaped faces feature a forehead that is wider than the cheeks. The cheeks further taper down to the chin.
Square–The forehead, cheeks, and jaws are all about the same width on a square-shaped face. Women with square-shaped faces tend to have very strong jaw lines.
Long/ Oblong–Sometimes called a “rectangular” face, the narrow face has the same general shape as a square face but is elongated.
Diamond Shaped–On the diamond-shaped face, the forehead and chin are narrower than the cheekbones. Women with diamond-shaped faces tend to have very strong cheekbones.
Now that we are aware of the face shapes let us get to know a little on the kind of earrings that suits to our face shape.
The Best Earrings for Oval Faces
Women with oval-shaped faces look good in almost every style of earrings. However, they can create a particularly striking look by wearing oval-shaped dangling earrings. These earrings will draw attention to the face’s elegant shape without adding any width or length. Women with oval faces also look stunning when wearing teardrop earrings. Much like oval dangling earrings, these pieces accentuate the face’s natural shape and create a sense of symmetry or balance.
The Best Earrings for Round Faces
Women with round faces can aim to elongate their faces and minimize a puffy appearance by choosing teardrop and dangle earrings. Look for those pieces that have long, angular designs as opposed to rounded designs. Most women with round faces should avoid dangling circular discs as these can make the face look wider. It is almost always best for women with round faces to choose earrings of a thin to medium width.
The Best Earrings for Heart-Shaped Faces
When choosing earrings for heart-shaped faces, look for pieces with elongated lines and curves. Pieces with elongated curves will help to balance out the face and will draw attention to the eyes, cheekbones, and jaw line. Women with heart-shaped faces look particularly good in dangle, teardrop, and chandelier earrings. Choose chandelier earrings in diamond shapes to add an interesting contrast to the face.
The Best Earrings for Square Faces
Women with square faces should choose earrings with rounded designs that soften the cheekbones and jaw line. The best choices are elongated, dangling pieces and hoop earrings. Those women who would like to add extra drama to their look can choose oversized hoops that brush the jaw line or extend below the jaw line. Such hoops will both soften the face and make it appear smaller. Women with square faces should avoid wearing very wide earrings.
The Best Earrings for Long Faces
Oblong and rectangular are nearly identical! But the face is longer, and more narrow, and the jaw line is more rounded. Pearl earrings are ideal for narrow faces as they add softness and minimize length. Clustered pearl earrings that dangle far below the earlobe are a particularly good choice. Instead of a linear or long drop earring, choose showy studs, or go for button or round style earrings to draw the eye up and add sparkle to your eyes.
The Best Earrings for Diamond-Shaped Faces
Women with diamond-shaped faces should look for earrings with long, elegant curves. Both dangle and hoop styles accentuate this type of face. Choose earrings with soft curves to minimize any sharpness around the cheekbones or jaw line. Those individuals with diamond-shaped faces should avoid wearing dangle earrings that also feature a diamond shape. These pieces will make the lines of the face appear exaggerated and are not generally flattering.
