We all know that different face shapes can affect how accessories look on a person. So that goes especially true for earrings, since it’s just going to be right next to your face. So we’ve compiled a list of the most common face shapes so you won’t have to wonder no more!
Oval – If you have an oval-shaped face, then the length of your face is longer than the width with a slightly narrower jawline than your hairline.
Earrings: You’re kinda lucky with earrings if you have an oval face because almost all types of earrings go with your face! Be it a longer type of earring like Alexa or a stud like Sonya, you can slay it all!
Square – Strong, angled jawline is the trademark of a square face. Typically, the forehead, cheekbones and jawline are the same width. People would usually associate that with a man’s face, but that doesn’t mean that your face is masculine. Think Cameron Diaz, still stunning with a square face.
Earrings: First tip, avoid square earrings because you don’t want to stack the same shapes together. Instead, go for hoops, drop and rounded earrings to soften the jawline. Scarlett, Macu and Gracie are a few good ones for this face shape!
Round – People with round face are also referred to as “baby face” and it’s the easiest to distinguish, perhaps, with the same width and length of the face.
Earrings: Again, we don’t want to stack the same shapes together, so avoid large, rounded earrings. Go for something dangling or chandelier style of earrings, like Ally, Cesar, Stella and Sophia.
Heart – For this shape, the hairline is the widest part of the face while it slowly tapers down to prominent cheekbones and a narrow chin.
Earrings: Almost all type of earrings are good for heart-shaped faces, but try to avoid really slim earrings as it does nothing much to accentuate your features. A good choice would be dangling earrings with rounded bottom, chandelier and teardrop. Take a look at Charly, Cereza and Melanie for inspiration!
Long – You may confuse long with oval because it’s true that both are similar, with the exception that people with a long face have a longer chin.
Earrings: To complement a long face shape, it will be better to wear something big, but not hanging all the way too low from the ear. Studs works especially well with long-shaped faces as well as medium to large hoops to make the face look fuller. A few good ones we recommend are Nelly, Lana and Daniela.
Diamond – The forehead and jawline are the same width while the cheekbones are the widest part of the face.
Earrings: There is almost no earring type that a diamond face shape can’t pull off! Literally anything goes with this face shape, especially with a pair of dangling earrings that stops a little above the chin, like Tanya and Hadley! Like really, the earring world is your oyster!
So now there you have it – our quick guide to picking out the perfect earrings for your face shape. We hope now you won’t feel insecure whenever you try to pick out your jewels!
