Find your perfect earring based on your face shape 

Tip #1

Take a selfie with your hair pulled back. Use the “mark-up” tool to draw an outline of your face. The shape of that outline is your geometric face shape. 

Tip #2

Stand in front of a mirror and use a dry erase marker to outline your face. The shape of the outline is your geometric face shape. 

Tip #3

Using the mirror or a selfie, mark dots at the outer edges or your forehead along your hairline, at your cheekbones and the bottom of your jaw. You can connect the dots to get an outline or just determine which horizontal lines are the longest and that will guide you to your face shape.

Oval face

 

Your face is longer than it is wide. You have a curved jawline slightly narrower than your forehead. Your forehead is probably the widest part of your face.

Earrings

You can wear almost any shape, but earrings that hit at your cheekbones like studs will show off your cheekbones. Another option is a round earring that will make your face look fuller.

Inverted triangle and heart

If your forehead is the widest part of your face and tapers down to a narrower chin with a straight hairline across your forehead. Heart shaped faces have a dip in the hairline.

Earrings

Balance this face shape with width at the jawline. Earrings that are wider at the bottom than the top help fill in the lower portion of your face, so your face is more balanced. Add soft curves like a tear drop shape.

Earrings

To balance your natural beauty choose earrings that are longer to emphasize the length in your face. But stay narrow since your cheekbones are wider, have slim earrings close to your face. You can also select earrings with weight at the bottom, like teardrops, to balance your cheekbones.

Rectangle and oblong

If your forehead, cheeks and jawline are nearly the same width you have a rectangular face shape. Your proportions are even, but your face is longer than a square shaped face. The difference between a rectangular and oolong face is how angular it is.

Earrings

Play up your cheekbones with studs. Other choices are hoops and ovals. You’ll want to wear earrings with rounded edges rather than sharp angles.
