How to Choose the Best Earrings for Your Face Shape

Jewelry is a fun way to accessorize and show off your personality. Not only that, but it can also help accentuate your natural features, letting your beauty shine through. 

This is most important for earrings because of their placement right next to your face. They can affect your appearance as much as makeup or a haircut. 

That’s why it’s crucial to know your face shape and choose the earrings that will compliment you the best. 

Oval Face

To discover if you have an oval face, look in the mirror and follow the curve of your forehead down to your chin. If there is a smooth transition from your temples to your cheekbones, with a soft round chin at the bottom, you have an oval face.

Lucky for you, the oval face shape is known to be the most versatile. You should experiment with different shaped earrings to find what’s best for you. You can also consider your complexion and hairstyle for more guidance.

Heart-Shaped Face

A heart-shaped face can be identified by a forehead that is wider than the cheeks, and a pointy or narrow chin. This shape is also known as an inverted triangle. 

If this sounds like you, the best earring shapes will balance out the narrow part of your face. Consider teardrop earrings, chandelier earrings, or any that start small and get wider at the bottom. 

Square Face

If you have a square face, this means your face has a consistent width, from the forehead, to the cheeks, and finally a prominent jaw.

Your face has strong bone structure and straight edges. This means round jewelry shapes, such as pearls and hoops, can add some softness. Avoid geometric earrings or earrings with sharp angles. 

Long and Narrow Face

Narrow faces are thin and long, typically including a tall forehead, slim cheeks, and a lower chin. 

When shopping for earrings with a narrow face, you should look for options that widen and round out your face. Think about statement pieces, large hoops, and cluster earrings. 

Round Face

On the other hand, a round face tends to be short. If your cheekbones are the widest point of your face, with only slight tapering to the chin, you have a round face.

For this face shape, consider drop or dangle earrings. Choose long, slim slim styles to elongate your face. Stay away from hoops, studs, and circular earrings, as they will only make your face appear wider.
