At GTTM we realise the importance of face shape when picking prescription eyeglasses to suit your face. Let face it if you need to see well you have to wear prescription glasses then lets get you the most comfotable frame which the best lens to suit your If you are unsure which frames to choose, or if you need to narrow down your choice, you are in good hands. We can advise you on what frames will suit you best.
What face shape do you have?
Your face shape is as unique as you are, so whether you think you have a round face shape or a rectangular face shape, then have a look in the mirror, take a good look at the lines, angles and shapes that make up your own face shape.
Glasses for square face shapes
A square face shape has angular liness and a strong jawline. The forehead is generally quite broad, so you will want to pick frames which will soften and balance these angles.
Both men and women with a square face shape tend tp suit cirved, oval or round glasses. The soft edged design of frames in these categories will help to soften square features and give the illusion of length to a square shaped face.
Which faces suit round frames
When someone has what’s considered to be a round face, the height and width of the face are almost equal, and thier cheekbones and jawline aren’t very prominant or defined.
Again the best eyeglasses design for people with round faces are frames with a very angurlar design. These include square, rectangle and upswept designs, and will offer a good contrast to a round face.
Stay away from small round frames, as they are much less likely to complement your round face shape.
Also don’t be afraid to choose eyeglasses with bold patterns, or colours. They will help create some definition and promote your round features very well.
Glasses for rectangle faces
Rectangular faces typically feature a deep forehead, a strong jawline and an elongated nose.
The best choice of frame are ones which have strong defined angles.
Examples of this type of frame are ones with strong square shapes as opposed to softer round glasses which could contrast with your features.
Go for a strong study frame, with solid neutral colours. A good example would be a tortoiseshell frame, which can come in slightly different blends to suit.
At GTTM we have a large variety of men’s and women’s frames which are geared to suit people with a rectangle face, some of which are in our unisex collection and very popular.
Glasses for people with oval faces
.People with oval face shapes are the easiest to match with frames as pretty much anything goes, most frames will suit them.
Oval faces have nice balanced features, with high cheekbones, and a narrow chin.
The main challenge for this group is finding frames which will fit well to the face, as the last thing you want to do is too underwhelm or overshadow an oval face.
You also need to be aware of skin tone and to choose a frame which will suit your personnel style and image.

Heart Shaped Face
Heart shaped faces are ones which are typically wider at the forehead and cheekbones,a tapering sharply at the chin. Sometimes this face shape is also known as the inverted traingle, famous influencers like Emily ratajkowski and Brad goreski have a heart shaped face.
The idea for your heart shaped face is to choose eyeglasses and sunglasses which are wider than your forehead. The trick is to find frame shapes which will elongate your face.
Smooth, rounded contours can provide contrast. You can also add visual interest by echoing your face shape with two-tone frames, or by adding an angled cat eye frame to sharpen your look.
Rounded frames are our primary recommendation, along with aviator frames
