Choosing Earrings to Suit Your Face Shape

Earrings are a popular piece of jewelry, and it is critical to select the appropriate styles for your face shape. Wearing the right earrings can help to define and flatter your features.

To determine your face shape, begin by pulling your hair away from your brow with a hairband, then stand in front of a mirror and trace the outline of your face onto the mirror with a soap bar or lipstick.

Compare your face shape to the ones listed below. Each one is described in detail, with defining characteristics and celebrity examples to assist you in determining which shape you are. If you’re having trouble determining which face shape you have, ask a friend for assistance.

The forehead is wider than the chin, and the hairline is gently rounded. The length is approximately one and a half times the width.

Kate Hudson, Charlize Theron, Beyoncé Knowles, and Jessica Alba are among the celebrities.

Round Face Characteristics: A circular shape that is as wide as it is long. A round chin is a distinguishing feature.

Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, and Drew Barrymore are among the celebrities.

Long, lean, and angular curvy lines to elongate the round face are best. Drop earrings in oblongs, ovals, and dangles are the most effective. Earrings with bold angular studs can also look great.

Large, chunky earrings should be avoided. Also, avoid hoops and small studs.

# Heart Shaped Face

Narrow at the jawline, wide at the cheekbones and/or forehead. The square face shape is like the oval face shape, but it is narrower below the cheekbones to give a more pointed chin.

Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, and Sohie Dahl are among the celebrities.

Earrings that are wider at the bottom than at the top are best. Choose earrings with gentle curves, such as teardrops or ovals. Pyramid earrings, which are wider at the bottom, can also work well.

Earrings with a heart shape or that come to a point at the bottom should be avoided.

# Square Face

Square face

Characteristics include a broad and strong forehead, an angular jaw, and a square hair line.

Katie Holmes, Demi Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Geena Davis, and Salma Hayek are among the celebrities.

Ideal for: Angular, rounded edges that soften a square face. Hoops look great in medium to long hairstyles.

Large, angular styles should be avoided because they can make your face appear wider.

# Oblong Face

Oblong face

Features: An oblong face is like a square face, but it is longer than it is wide.

Statement chandelier styles with a lot of volume are best suited. Simple studs work well as well because they draw the eyes horizontally.

Earrings in the shape of a diamond and angular squares should be avoided. Remember to match your earrings’ style and color to your outfit and the occasion. Wear what makes you feel good, and your elegance will shine through
