In the past, you might remember a pair of cardboard magic glasses that displayed secret messages for only you to read. These glasses were a fun novelty, but they weren’t really practical.
Now, you can wear stylish glasses that allow you to write and decode invisible messages and view them with special technology. They can be used to encrypt social media passwords, roommate’s phone numbers, or a workmate’s confidential information that you don’t want someone to see.
The first step is to find the right frames for your face shape. This is a big influence on how your glasses will look, so make sure that you take it into consideration early in the selection process.
Generally speaking, the frame you choose should contrast your face shape and provide balance to your facial features. You’ll want to choose frames that are slightly wider than your cheekbones for a proper fit.
You’ll also want to try on several different pairs of glasses, so that you can find one that fits comfortably. Once you find a frame that looks good on you, you can return it for a full refund if it doesn’t feel right.
How to Know Your Face Shape
The best way to tell if you have a square, rectangle, heart-shaped or oval face is by looking into a mirror and seeing which side is the widest. These face shapes tend to be easier to fit into most frame styles.
These face shapes typically have a narrower jawline than round and oval faces, which makes them ideal for frames that balance the hard lines of your face. However, if you have a very wide jawline, look for frames that are less wide on the bottom of your frame, or that have some kind of detail on the lower half of your glasses.
Another important factor to consider is the color of your glasses. If your glasses are too dark or too light, they will clash with your skin tone and won’t look right on you.
It’s best to buy your glasses in the same color as your skin, and not in a different tone. This will help ensure that you can get a pair that will complement your complexion and make your face look natural.
In addition to the frame color, you should also look for details on the front of your glasses that complement your face shape. For example, if you have an oval face, look for a frame that has a square or circular outline.
You should also consider how your glasses will look in relation to the rest of your clothing and accessories. If you’re wearing a suit or dress that’s too tight, a pair of glasses with a looser fit will look more appropriate.
Choosing the correct pair of glasses for your face shape can be difficult, but it’s worth taking some time to do so. If you do, you’ll be happier with your new glasses than if you picked out a pair that didn’t fit well and didn’t look good on you.
