Women love wearing earrings, but may not know that all shapes and styles of earrings will not suit every face shape. Here are a few tips on how to choose the best earrings for your face shape.
Round face – Round faces are widest at the cheekbones with no taper to the chin. Make your face appear longer by wearing long drop earrings that will elongate your face. Avoid round or circular earrings that will emphasize the roundness of your face.
Square face – Ladies with wide jaws and a jawline that is similar to their forehead, are considered to have square faces. Look at earrings that are medium to long with round edges to soften your features.
Heart shaped face – Heart-shaped faces will have a wider forehead compared to their cheeks and chin. To counterbalance your sharp chin, look at chandelier type earrings that fill the lower part of your face.
Oval shaped face – If you have a well-balanced face that is oval, you can carry off almost any style of earring, but triangular earrings or simple studs will show off cheekbones.
Before shopping for earrings, look at styles that work with your face shape and then visit the stores to make your selection process easier. It is a good idea to try on your earrings with your hair away from your face to ensure that the style you choose, suits your face shape.
