How to Match Your Earrings With Your Face Shape

Earrings can make your face look thin, wide, long or fat depending on your face shape. That is why it is important that you understand your face shape to choose the perfect earrings.

Round
If you have the widest at the cheekbones with no taper to the chin, you have a round face shape. Long drop or dangle earrings are perfect for you. These will elongate your face and make it look slimmer.

Circular earrings, hoops and button studs which emphasize roundness will only make your face look rounder.

Square
if your forehead and jawline have similar widths, you have a square face shape. If so, go for earrings that are medium to long with rounded edges. Any earrings that are in oval or circular shapes will soften your square shape. Avoid any earrings in a square so as not to emphasize your face shape.

Long and Narrow
For this face shape, you have to emphasize the width of your face with clustered earrings, short dangles, studs, and hoops in small to medium sizes. Round earrings will give an illusion of a wider face making it fuller.

OvalĀ 
The oval-shaped face is the shape for all earrings. You can wear almost everything. However, triangular earrings and simple studs are best to highlight your lovely cheekbones.

Heart
If your forehead is wider than your cheeks and the lower half of your face narrows like a heart shape, you have a heart face shape. With this face shape, you have to offset your pointed chin with a teardrop or chandelier earrings. Especially, earrings that are wider at the bottom than the top. These earrings will help fill in the lower portion of your face making it more balanced.
