How To Choose The Best Earrings For Your Face Shape

There's no question that earrings are a great way to make you look fabulous. However, not all earrings will suit you well. 

The reality is that when it comes to earrings, it is important to consider the shape of your face. After all, choosing the wrong pair of earrings may make your face look wide, thin, long, or fat depending on your face shape.


How To Choose The Best Earrings For Your Face Shape

#1: Inverted Triangle Shaped Face:

When your forehead is the widest part of your face and you have a pointy and narrower chin, you have an inverted triangle shaped face. This means that you should look for earrings that create the illusion of a wider jawline, moving away from your forehead. So, you should consider chandeliers or teardrop earrings. 


#2: Oval Face:

If you have a face that looks like an egg, you have an oval face. 

The good news is that you can wear almost any earrings shape. However, if you want to look at your best and show off your beautiful cheekbones, then grab some triangular earrings or simple studs.


#3: Round Face:

When you have a circular face where the widest part is at your cheekbones, you have a round face.

In this case, you should look for earrings that make your face look slimmer and longer. This means that you want to avoid all those large circular earrings, hoops, button studs, and drop earrings with a dangling round disc. 

 #4: Heart Shaped Face:

When you have a forehead that is wider than your cheeks and the lower half of your face narrows like a heart then you have a heart-shaped face.

In this case, you should look to balance out your sharp chin. This implies looking for chandelier or teardrop earrings. Ultimately, you should look for earrings that are wider at the bottom than the top. 

#5: Long and Narrow Face:

When you have a long and thin face, you should look for earrings that add some width to your face. So, you should consider studs, clustered earrings, short dangles, and hoops in a medium to large size. 


#6: Square Face:

 If you have a square jaw, which means that your forehead and jawline have similar widths, you need to soften the hard edges of your face.

 So, you should go for earrings that are medium to long with rounded edges. Oval shapes soften things up, and circular earrings and hoop earrings work well too. However, you should stay away from square studs or any kind of earring with a square as it only reinforces the squareness.


Bottom Line

As you can see, there are plenty or earring types and shapes that work well for you. You just need to consider the shape of your face to ensure that you always look at your best.
