The face is as wide as it is long, and has a circular appearance. They lack strong lines and angles.
One should avoid frames that exaggerate the face's roundness and wear a pair that contrasts the face.
Men with a circular face should wear square or rectangular-shaped glasses to appear more masculine. Such shapes make their faces longer and thinner. Ladies should wear bold eyewear that draws attention to the eyes and make their faces look more petite.
People with a square face have a strong jawline and extremely angular features. They also have a broad forehead.
