THE BEST GLASSES for your face shape

THE BEST GLASSES for your face shape

Have you ever stood in front of a shop mirror, and been confused as to how to pick the best glasses for your face shape? Some will somehow look great, whereas others make you look washed out. And how do you know what others will feel when they see you? Aur gave use the three most important tips in a lesson about physiognomy.

Firstly, what is Physiognomy? Its is a discipline of natural science which studies the connection between a person’s physical appearance, and both their life and personality. Physiognomy has been around for thousands of years . It explains what people’s subconscious internal intuitions about others already knows. Then uses this to improve interactions with everyone in our lives. For example, this why the male pharaohs of Egypt used eye-liner and make up. They knew how to use physiognomy to control and influence their people.

Glasses are another way we are able to change the way others see us. When you pick the right glasses for your face shape, they’re able to fix flaws or complement our strengths. Whereas the wrong pair of glasses for our face shape can unknowingly sabotage our professional and personal relationships.

There are three main facial features we look at when using eye glasses. These are the eyebrows, cheeks and temples. Each of these features refer to a different area of your life, and affect the way others see you. Let’s see how to pick the right glasses for your face shape and features.

The eyebrows

Eyebrows show an individual’s sense of responsibility for their own lives, and others. Those with thick eyebrows naturally take feel more responsible for those around them. They are usually serious about what they do. When the eyebrows are too thick though, this becomes out of balance and they aren’t able to manage themselves. Whereas if they are too thin, others won’t naturally trust them.

The rims of a pair of glasses can either accentuate or negate the eyebrows. If a person has naturally thick eyebrows, they shouldn’t get glasses with a thick rim as this will make them too serious with others and feel overly pressured in their work or duties. The best glasses for people with thick eyebrows are frame-less styles, which do not over accentuate their own eyebrows.


The opposite is true for those with thin and fair eyebrows. People with naturally thin won’t be easily trusted or be seen as responsible by others. Glasses with a more pronounced upper frame are better for those with thin eyebrows to make them looking more responsible and trustworthy. The goal is always balance. It is better not to have either too much or too little.eyebrows

Cheeks and the best glasses

A person’s cheeks shows if they are confident or lack confidence. But not the whole cheek illustrates this. Only the front area, at the top, under the eyes and directly besides the nose. Those who have more “meaty high cheeks” will be naturally confident. But also stubborn and uncompromising. Flat or “hollow” cheekbones are in contrast, signs of a lack of confidence. The shape of the glasses is what is important here. Again the goal is balance.


If someone has flat cheeks at the front but wants to look confident, they should wear glasses where the bottom rim frames the top of the cheek. This is where is the eye socket meets the upper cheekbone. See the picture on the left as an example.The shadow and shape of the eye glasses will give the appearance of a more defined cheek, and the wearer will intuitively look more confident.

Someone with very thick cheeks, who is also naturally very confident should wear glasses which somewhat reduce the appearance of their cheeks. Too much confidence can make you look unapproachable and stubborn. Rounded and longer styles of glasses would be more suitable (See the picture on the right). This will help to them more approachable and open to others. If someone has a quite balanced cheek structure, thinner glasses are better as they do not obstruct or alter the appearance of their prime features.

Glasses to fix the temple area


Your temples are located on either side of your eyes, in front of the ears and around the hairline. The temples are usually where the legs of the glasses will sit. They are located in an area of the face which represents a person’s 30s-40s, which is the level of their eyes. If that area of a person’s skull or face concaves (dents in) it means that during this time in their lives they won’t have power or influence and that they’ll face problems.

The right pair of glasses can fix the negative influences this has. When you wear a pair of glasses which are wide enough to fill in the natural indentation, it will help solve the problems associated with those years. But if your facial shape is already parallel with no indentation. Be sure to find glasses which to not convex or concave this area. It’s important to find glasses the same width as your face, to maintain balance.temples
