Which Earring Will Suit You Best?

image20Round face: Folks with round face should mostly wear longer earrings because most of your face and cheeks are fuller and circular, so wearing long dangles, angular, lean and drop earrings will add angle and elongate your face. You can even try narrow chandelier, angular drops and lines that will add length and slim down your face. Most Indian women have an oval or round face.

Celebrities like Priety Zinta, Kate Winslet, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz have round face, and you could check out their style for more tips on accessories.

image21Heart – shaped face: This kind of face shape is characterised with a wide forehead that gets narrower after the cheekbones and is pointed at the chin. To neutralize the triangular shape, go for earrings, which are wider at the bottom and not at the top. Earrings with light curves like teardrop, oval and pyramid styles will work well. Folks with a heart-shape face can also opt for the straight ones, as it adds length.

The main point here is, your earrings should add width to your chin and not lengthen too much of your face, but should soften the effects of a pointed chin. You can go in for rounded and oval accessories. Celebrities including Reese Witherspoon, Rani Mukherjee, Scarlett Johansson and Sonakshi Sinha have the similar face shape.

image22Square face: In this shape the width of forehead, jaw line and cheeks are nearly equal. Choose earrings that minimize the long line of your face. Earrings like round hoops, long teardrops and narrow chandeliers will minimize the edges while adding height. Avoid earrings that highlight the angular shape of your under jaw, instead opt for earrings with curvy design at the end. Big oval, round and circular styles are the best for this shape.

What you should avoid is long and elongated designs, earrings that accentuate the angular shape of your jaw. The main idea here is to choose awesome diamond or gold earrings that will fetch all the attention and overshadow your face’s angles. Sonam Kapoor, Sandra Bullock, Isabella, Amrita Arora, Kareena Kapoor, Demi Moore, Salma Hayek, and Gwyneth Paltrow are few of the many celebrities that have square-shaped face.

image23Diamond face: Diamond shaped folks have narrow forehead and chin, while the cheekbones are somewhat wide. Earrings with curves, straight lines and soft drops are flattering on this face shape.

Go for pieces that equalize your natural beauty; the ones that have more width rather than length are an awesome choice. This face shape like oval is equally versatile as it complements almost any earring style. To accentuate your features you can go for any earrings that are proportionate to the face but at the same time, you should avoid long earrings.

image24Oval face: People with oval shaped face have a narrow forehead that also blends with your lovely cheekbones. This face shape is one of the most versatile and perfect face shapes. To compliment such face shape, choose earrings like teardrops, hoops, drop dangles, triangles, chandeliers, and pearls that match with your face contour. You can experiment and wear anything as almost any style suits this face shape.


image25Narrow face:  In this case, length defines your face but the width of your forehead and cheeks are not prominent. To complement this outline go for earrings that have lots or heavy work and more of volume. For a change, one can also try big pearls and short platinum dangles. Some of the famous celebrities who match your face shape are Sarah Jessica Parker, Angelina Jolie and Hilary Swank.



image26Oblong Face Shape: This kind of face shape is similar to oval face, but slightly longer than oval. This shape is characteristically longer and not wide, with soft, curvy features at chin and forehead. The earrings you choose should minimize or shorten the length of your face, and in turn add to its width.

Get crazy and go on with funky, classic, large button-style or coloured stud designs in earrings that will definitely accentuate the width your face. What you need to avoid are the long, slim, thread-like styles that would add more to the length aspect of your contour.
