Wearing the earrings that flatter your face shape is like an instant face lift. And it’s easy to find the shape of your face. Simply pull back your hair, look in a mirror and trace your reflection using lipstick.
Oval Face – Forehead is as wide as the cheekbones. The face narrows from the cheeks to the chin, creating the oval shape. Oval faces look great in any style. However, teardrop and oval-shaped dangling earrings accentuate your oval shape even further. Round Face – Widest at the cheekbones without tapering down to the chin. To minimize roundness, choose teardrop or dangling earrings in angular designs. Avoid circular discs. Square Face – The forehead, cheeks, and jaws are all about the same width. Wear rounded, elongated, dangling hoop earrings that brush the jaw line or extend below it to soften the natural angles of this face type. Avoid wide earrings. Heart Face – The forehead is wider than the cheeks and the cheeks further taper down to the chin. Balance the upside down triangle shape of your face with dangling teardrop or chandelier earrings. Narrow Face – Length of face is its most defining aspect with little emphasis on width of forehead or cheeks. Short dangles or clustered pearls are great choices, as they elongate the width of the face. Diamond Face – The forehead and chin are narrower than the cheekbones. Dangle or hoop styles with soft curves are flattering to this face type. Avoid diamond shape earrings.
