The best earrings for your face shape

September 29, 2021 2 Comments

Hello everyone!


Knowing your face shape can be helpful when choosing your hairstyle, makeup, eyebrow shape, glasses and even earring style. A long time ago, I shared a quiz to help you determine which face shape you have. In previous posts, I talked about the best eyebrows for your face shape and the best sunglasses for your face shape. Today, I want to share some tips on how to choose the best earring that will flatter and define your features.


It is important to choose earrings that complement your natural beauty rather than choosing ones that are 'in style'. A simple trick is to pick the earrings that are opposite to your face shape. Keep reading to see what I mean by this.

Round face

Drop earrings and long dangles look stunning on you, as long earrings will help to elongate your face. Earrings with a sleek and long build are your best choice.


Square face

Round earrings, such are hoops, are your best choice. Earrings with rounded edges are a great choice because they bring attention to your earrings and help soften your face’s natural angles.


Heart-shaped face

To balance your natural face shape, try earrings that are wider at the bottom than at the top. Earrings with soft curves such as teardrop styles balance out the face and draw attention to the eyes, cheekbones and jawline.


Diamond face

Earrings that balance your natural features are ones that are more wide than long. A combination of curves and straight lines are also flattering, as are earrings with delicate drops.


Narrow face

For you, chunky earrings work well. Short dangles are also flattering to narrow faces. Dangling earrings with elongated curves will highlight the cheekbones and soften your appearance.


Oval face

People with an oval face shape are considered the luckiest. Oval faces have incredible versatility in what they can wear, so have fun experimenting; you can wear any style you like!

The best sunglasses for your face shape

July 05, 2015 4 Comments
Hello everyone!

A while back, I posted a quiz to help you
 determine your face shape.  I also told you that knowing your face shape is essential when choosing your eyebrow shape and glasses, among other things.  


(If you are not sure what your face shape is, click here to take the quiz.  And to choose the most flattering eyebrow shape, click here.)  

Today's post will help you choose the best sunglasses for your face shape.  If you want to find out more keep reading!

Different sunglasses look better on different face shapes.  Sure, you could try different sunglasses out until you find a pair that works for you, but if you need a little help, check out these tips...




Heart-shaped face: Any frames that are wider on the top than they are on the bottom work well.





Round face shape: Oversized, rectangular, and angular frames set off roundness.



Oval face shape: You can pull off any round or square frame.  Keep proportion in mind, and try not to go too big or too small for your face.




Square face shape: To soften your strong features, choose sunglasses with soft lines or rimless edges. 


I usually wear retro square or oversized sunglasses.  Which style is your favourite?

The best eyebrows for your face shape

December 21, 2013 1 Comments
Hello everyone!
Today's post is another eyebrow post - I told you I'm obsessed! ;-)
Eyebrows can change the way your face looks, so it’s important to have perfectly shaped brows that complement and balance your face.

If you don't know your face shape, take this quiz and find out!
Here are some tips to help you choose the most flattering eyebrow shape to complement your facial features:
Oval face
Oval faces are lucky; oval faces are considered the perfect shape.  Full brows with a prominent arch are most complementing and to create the appearance of fuller cheeks, shorter length brows work amazingly. 
Round face
Choose medium to full brows that are more angular than round, an arch will complement your natural features and offset the roundness of your face. 
Angular face (Heart, Inverted triangle, Diamond, Pear)
Your face already has angles so medium brows that are rounded with a soft arch work best.  A high arch will only make you look permanently surprised! 
Square/Rectangle face
Like an angular face, you want medium brows that aren't overly flat or arched.  A soft arch will soften the angles of the face. 
Long/Oblong
Flat straight eyebrows will help to shorten your face vertically and a low arch will help open up your face horizontally.
Note for all:
Steer clear of thin eyebrows.  Eyebrows need to be in proportion with your face like all other features, so it’s best to get them groomed by a professional to ensure they are perfectly suited to you. 
I also came across these very useful eyebrow-shaping tips from doeadeery.com:
