Look at your face shape. Here is a picture featuring main face shape types. Try to choose earrings that are opposite to the features of your face. Check our previous blog post about how to identify your face shape.
OVAL SHAPED FACE
Women with oval faces have foreheads that are as wide as the cheekbones. The oval face narrows from the cheeks to the chin. If you have such a face, you are a happy one cause you can wear almost every earring style. But there are also highlights, as e.g. oval shaped dangle earrings provide really striking look! Such earrings draw attention to the elongated face shape without adding any length or width.
Round faces have the widest point across the cheekbones, narrowing at the forehead and jaw line. Long geometric earrings are great for women with round shaped faces. Dangle and teardrop earrings would also be a great choice to elongate the face. It's better to choose elegant and feminine designs than massive ones with a lot of details.
HEART SHAPED FACE
Such faces feature a wider forehead, the cheeks further taper down to the chin. Long earrings with beautiful lines and curves are suiting in this case. They would balance out the face shape and draw attention to the eyes, cheekbones and jaw line.
Square shaped faces do not narrow much from the cheekbone to the jaw line, nor from the cheekbone to the forehead. Dangling and hoop earrings of elongated designs are matching for square shaped faces. Rounded designs would soften the cheekbones and the jaw line. Over-sized hoop earrings are also a great choice here!
Rectangular shaped faces are more elongated than the square face. Minimize the length of the face with long dangle earrings. Elongated teardrop dangle earrings will accentuate the cheekbones and add some softness.
Surely you will choose some different earrings: for various occasions and outfits. But when keeping the simple rules, you can be sure: the earrings will help you to look your best!
