Hello, everyone! If you’ve been following my tips, you’re surely in style already, but fashion is constantly evolving, and has many rules that you should not forget. But don’t worry… that’s what I’m here for!
Our tip for this week is about earrings… Despite of being the littlest accessories in our look, and that many times we don’t pay them the attention they deserve, if used properly, these can boost our appearance and make us look stunning, while on the other hand, if worn the wrong way, they can totally destroy it and make us look awful!
So… do your earring match the shape of your FACE!?
One of the things we should keep in mind at the time of choosing our earrings is the shape of our face. For most of us, figuring out the shape of our face can be obvious, and for others, it’s not that simple. So let’s figure it out! Stand in front of the mirror, draw your face, and then take a look at this image:
Well, now that we have an idea of what kind of face we have, it will be much easier to choose our earrings. One of the most important rules to stick to is that we need to use earrings OPPOSITE to the shape of our face… which is difficult to explain, so here are some examples:
If you’ve got an oval-shaped face, you’re lucky. You can wear any kind of earrings, specially elongated-triangular ones. Although, you should avoid wearing them too long because they can make your face look longer (and you don’t want that).
If you have a round face, you should avoid round earrings, because they will emphasize the round shape of your face. The best thing to do is to wear long stylized earrings. They can be drop, spiral, or stick-shaped. A type of earring that goes perfectly with this type of face is the candelabra, but not too long.
If your face has a rectangular or elongated shape face, the earrings you wear need to be wide, with round edges, even candelabra type earrings. You need to avoid elongated and angular earrings.
If your face has very angular features, you can say it’s square-shaped, and the best earrings for this kind of face are those with a round or curved shape. Long, drop-shaped earrings can also enhance your beauty.
Heart / Triangle / Inverted Triangle
If your face is heart, triangle or inverted triangle-shaped, you must wear long dangling earrings, and at all costs avoid triangle-shaped earrings as these will accentuate more the shape of your face.
If your face is diamond-shaped, congratulations. You can choose all kinds of earrings. Long, short, oval, triangular, small, etc… the choice is yours!
Well, that’s all for our tip #4. Since now you know what kind of earrings will always make you look spectacular, mix this tip with the Right Necklace and Neckline, and get a stunning look! Put these tips into practice and shine!
