Earring Elegance: Finding the Perfect Match for Your Face Shape

Earring Elegance: Finding the Perfect Match for Your Face Shape

Posted by Luxe Tones on

Earrings are a must-have accessory for every woman. They can highlight your natural beauty and add a touch of sophistication and glamour. When choosing earrings, the most important factor to consider is your face shape. Not all types of earrings go with every face shape. The wrong earrings for your face shape can ruin your look.

Here are some tips to help you choose the right earrings for your face shape.

Oval Shaped Face

Most earring styles including hoops, chandeliers, and even longer curving styles go with the oval face shape. Danglings, teardrops, and ovals are particularly popular among women with an oval face due to their ability to emphasize its natural contour.

Round Shaped Face

If you have a round face, long dangling earrings or teardrop shapes can help elongate it and minimize roundness(making your face appear slimmer and more contoured). Steer clear of large, chunky hoops and circular designs as they could emphasize the roundness of your face.

Square Shaped Face

Hoop earrings, round designs, and earrings that dangle with round edges can soften the angularity of square face. Large focal elements can make your face appear longer and define the angular elements of the face structure. Avoid square or angular earrings that mimic the face shape.

Heart Shaped Face

Women with a heart-faced shape have a wider forehead and a borrower chin. For such women, earrings that balance the face shape are an ideal choice. Typical examples include teardrop, triangular, fan-shaped, and chandelier earrings. These earrings can make the lower part of the face appear fuller. Women with heart-faced shapes can also consider dangling designs as they can embellish the sharp structure of the heart-faced shape.

Diamond Faced Shape

Have a diamond-shaped face with wide cheekbones and narrow jawline and forehead? Look for earrings that highlight your cheekbones. Consider experimenting with dangling earrings, curved symmetrical styles, or even ear cuffs. Steer clear of colourful earrings that are wider at the top,as they can affect facial balance.

Rectangular or Oblong Shaped Face

Rouned and chunky earrings can make a long rectangular-shaped face appear shorter. Studs, short dangles, and medium to large sized hoops are some other ideal choices for the rectangular shaped face. Steer clear of long dangly earrings as they can further elongate the face.

Triangular Shaped Face

Women with a pear shaped face usually have a narrow forehead and wider jawline. Bold earrings that are narrow at the top and wider at the bottom go with the triangular or pear shaped face.

Finding out Your Face Shape

Follow these steps to find out your face shape.

  • Pull your hair back- Pull your hair away from your face, ensuring that your entire facial structure is visible
  • Stand in front of a mirror-Stand in front of a mirror in a well-lit room
  • Measure key facial areas- To find out your face shape, measure
  • The width of your forehead
  • The width of your cheekbones (from below one eye to the other)
  • The width of your jawline (from one end of your jaw to the other)
  • The length of your face (from the center of your forehead to the tip of the chin)

Different Types of Earrings

Here are some popular types of earrings.

  • Hoops- Are available in different shapes. Some popular types of hoops include quadrat hoops, oval hoops, triangular hoops, and circular hoops
  • Tear drop-The shape of tear drop earrings resembles tear drops (hence the name)
  • Chandelier- A chandelier earring is connected to the base (could be a hook or stud). Though longer, these type of earrings are lightweight and don’t stretch the earlobe
  • Dangling earrings- Hang below the earlobe and move to and fro. Dangling earrings can be short or long (depending on the brand)
  • Celestial earrings- Feature elegant and unique celestial-inspired designs. The right celestial earrings can significantly improve your appearance and make heads turn
