Christmas is the wonderful time of the year. It's a time not only to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ but also to bring cheers to everyone. Giving gifts to kids, friends and relatives are always special. Nothing beats the smile and warmth of embrace you get from people you care about.
Christmas is just few stones away and the Christmas spirit is definitely in the air already. If you haven't done your Christmas shopping yet, now is the time to do so. Don't jump in the Christmas rush shoppers' bandwagon for it will only make you stress and out of focus. Gift giving doesn't mean you need to give expensive gifts all the time. It's about giving something that will make the receiver feel special and loved not because they got teh most expensive gift there is but because you made them special and you thought about them.
Christmas shopping on a budget is achievable if you only follow some guidelines.
1. Make a list
2. Shop early
3. Stick on your budget
4. Give personalized gifts that you made on your own
If you have the budget to buy classic casio px 780 at musicians friend why not? However, if you have small budget, work around it and don't borrow money just to buy expensive gifts because it's not practical.
I'm very sure that you are already scheduling your Christmas shopping this year so this SM MOA Holiday Shopping Mall Hours announcement from SM can be your guide. It's good to know that mall hours will be extended up until 11 pm except for some dates.
Shopping is fun especially if have lots of budget to buy presents for your family and relatives. Just make sure to make a list of names and gifts that you want to give them so you'll have an idea and you know where you'll find when you are at the mall already. As Christmas draws near expect a lot of traffic and of course lots of shoppers most especially when 13th month or bonus will be given to employees by next week or so.
Try to come early at the mall to avoid heavy crowds that usually starts after lunch but I bet when the holiday for employees starts, malls will be full even in the morning. If you have too many gifts to buy or you'll be scouring various stores, try not to bring small kids for they will only make your shopping slower. Also, small kids get tired and bored easily, so if you can, just leave them at home for their safety as well.
Happy shopping !!!

Figure Out the Shape of Your Face
The first step involves figuring out what the shape of your face is. Categories include oval, round, oblong, diamond, heart, and square. Once you've analyzed your face in the mirror, preferably with your hair pulled back after a shower, and you've figured out what the shape of your face is, you can confidently go shopping for the right pair of frames.
Descriptions of Each Shape
- Oval – An oval face is pretty balanced. The chin is only a bit narrower than the forehead.
- Round – If you were to measure a round face, the length and width are pretty much the same. These faces tend to have full cheeks.
- Oblong – On the other hand, an oblong face is longer. People with oblong faces tend to have longer noses, higher cheekbones, and high foreheads.
- Diamond – A small chin and a small forehead are characteristic of a diamond shaped face. The eye line and jawline are also narrow, with prominent cheekbones.
- Heart – Hearts have broader foreheads and narrower chins. You should notice that the wide cheekbones give way to a narrower jawline.
- Square – A square face has a strong, defined jawline, but the cheeks and forehead, too, are prominent features.
The Best Frames for Each Shape
If you have an oval face, you're pretty lucky because just about any type of frame will work on you. If you want to give some contrast to the soft lines of your face, though, consider getting frames that are rectangular or square, or have fun with geometric shapes.
If you find that your face is round, go with frames that will sharpen and enhance your features. To make your face appear longer and thinner, stick with rectangular options or styles that are very horizontal in appearance. You may also want to go with any frames that are able to draw attention to the top of the face.
Oblong faces do best with frames that shorten them. Choose broad options with a decorative temple or a top rim that really stands out.
Diamonds do great with cat eye styles or even rimless frames, both of which really bring out the cheekbones. You can bring balance to this face by going with oval frames too.
Heart faces need frames that are heavier on the bottom, as this will add width to the otherwise narrow end of the face. Go with styles that have low-set temples, narrow frames, or round frames. All of these will draw attention down and away from the forehead.
Finally, for square faces, stick with round or oval frames, or even butterfly shapes. You can order designer glasses online that also feature center-set temples.

Anyway, sharks are still ferocious and can kill people without any warning. However, there are some brave individuals who love to be around sharks that they can even swim with them or would dare to see them deep down the water.
These days, there are also shark print designs that are coming up and I bet shark lovers would want them on their shirts or other stuff that they can wear. Here are some shark print designs on various items.

I'm almost done with my shopping and the next thing that will keep me busy is wrapping all of them and putting them under my Christmas tree that I still need to put up next week or very early December.
I have my own wish list that I want but not totally in need to have one this Christmas.I just love seeing them and hoping to have one soon if not this Christmas. Aside from owning one of the thomas kincaid furniture, I also want to have some of these beauty products that I saw on various online stores.
1. Happy Skin lipsticks- (image via facebook.com/happyskincosmetics) heard about this on Kris TV and it looks pretty nice and it resembles a fat crayon, only it can be put on our lips. I will try to find one at the mall soon.
2. Essie or other brands Nail colors - would love to color my nails with so many cute colors this holiday.
3. 'Delectable Eyes - Decadent Truffles' Set from Estee Lauder
4. Bulgari Fragrance
5. Clinique Skin Care Kit
These days, there are various color and brand of lipsticks that women can choose depending on her personality, budget and choice. Some women can also opt for matte (it can be drying to the lips though) or glossy (shiny) lipstick. Trying out various shades on the counter before buying will be very helpful. There are times that we thought that a certain color will look good on us especially when we saw it on a model but when we tried on on our lips the effect is very different. Our skin tone also plays an important role in our lipstick choice so be sure to try it on. There are beauty consultants that will help you choose or will guide you which lipstick will look best on you.

Since every celebrity needs to look perfect at all time, they invest in the best quality anti-aging products to prevent wrinkles. These products help them maintain their youth and provide them with the glowing skin that is seen on the red carpet or the big screen. In particular, they get regular eye wrinkle treatments to minimize the aging around their eyes.
A Great Moisturizer
Along with their anti-aging products, these stars also use a great moisturizer to provide their skin with the nutrients it needs to stay healthy. The anti-aging products do not contain this nourishment. They are only meant to treat the skin. Therefore, it is important to top the skin with a final layer of support at night and before applying makeup. This will ensure that your skin always looks great and that your makeup goes on smoothly.
Blush is essential on the red carpet or at a photo shoot. Most stars prefer cream to powder when it comes to blush. Although this might not be the norm for most consumers, it is the best way to create a natural flush in your cheeks. It will make your skin look healthier and youthful. If you do not own cream blush, you can always use blend a tiny bit of lipstick on your cheeks.
Since most celebrities have to show off their skin, they usually like to apply a nice lotion that enhances their skin. A shimmery lotion is the most popular option. However, some stars do like the tinted versions that provide a little extra color on their skin. Either way, the shimmer in the lotion will smooth out imperfections on the body and make you look more radiant.
It is extremely common for the stars to wear fake lashes on TV and on the red carpet. This is because they want their eyes to pop. There are a few types of lashes that stars choose from:
- Individual flares
- Strip lashes
- Lash extensions
However, there are some celebrities who are using eyelash growth products so they no longer need to rely on fake lashes.
Finally, celebrities usually have pressed powder on hand to touch up their makeup and minimize shine. This is especially important prior to picture taking. The best pressed powders are sheer. They will remove excess oil from the skin and help the makeup look smooth in the picture. Ideally, this product should contain no sunscreen. Otherwise, it distorts the picture.
If you want to look like a star, make sure to invest in these popular products. Use them everyday so that you look as beautiful as the celebrities on the red carpet.

When the International Cycling Union officially stripped Lance Armstrong of his seven Tour de France titles, it came as a shock to cycling fans all over the globe. While allegations of performance-enhancing drugs had swirled around Armstrong for quite some time, he had always denied them. So when the ICU made this official decision, it was a huge deal. And it also had some major effects.
According to various reports, Armstrong said that this decision cost him $75 million in income that's never coming back. Additionally, there are at least six pending lawsuits that could cost him more than $110 million. Those lawsuits are all in some way related to accusing him of financially benefiting from cheating and lying about his cheating for multiple years.
Another big impact of this scandal was on the Livestrong Foundation. Previously known as the Lance Armstrong Foundation, the cyclist founded it in 1997 after surviving testicular cancer. In 2003, the foundation launched its yellow Livestrong bracelet. Over the last decade, this bracelet has become one of the most iconic fashion accessories in the world. It seems like just about everyone has had one on their wrist at some point.
The reason Livestrong bracelets seem so prominent is because over 80 million have been sold. That alone has raised closed to $100 million for inspiring and empowering cancer survivors and their families. And while Nike will officially quit making the Livestrong bracelet and all other apparel in 2014, that shouldn't diminish what this foundation has accomplished. In total, the foundation has generated over half a billion dollars since its inception.
Red String Bracelet
Celebrities like Madonna, Ashton Kutcher and Gwyneth Paltrow have all been photographed with a red string bracelet on their wrist. Since celebrities are known for being quite fashionable even when they're just going to the gym, it's normal to assume that this bracelet was just a trend that suddenly caught on in Hollywood. However, it's actually a fashion choice that can be traced all the way back to the Bible.
This bracelet is a folk custom among the Jewish population. The reason it's worn is to help ward off all the bad things that can be brought on by the evil eye. And if you're wondering why it's been so prominently seen among celebrities, it's because it's commonly associated with Kabbalah, which is a specific realm within Jewish thought.
If you see someone wearing a necklace with a fish on it, you may think they just liked the way it looked. You may even think they just happen to be fond of fishing. While that's a possibility, if the head of the fish faces left and the tail consists of two lines crossing, chances are it's actually something more meaningful. So, what exactly is this fish? It's known as an ichthys. That word is actually Greek for fish. And the reason this accessory has meaning behind it is because it's a very popular Christian symbol. That's the result of several prominent mentions of fish throughout the Bible.
Pink Ribbon Pin
This accessory is actually related to the first item on our list. Most people don't only wear a pink ribbon pin because it looks nice. Instead, they do it to show their support and help spread awareness about breast cancer. While plenty of people wear this accessory throughout the year, it's especially popular during October since that's officially Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And because breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, as well as the most common cause of cancer death among Hispanic women, it's an accessory that has a deeply personal meaning for many of those who wear it.
Much like tattoos, some fashion accessories are simply about their visual appeal. However, accessories don't only have to serve that purpose. As the above examples show, it's also possible to wear an accessory that shares an important belief with the world.

What's the difference between a ruby and a sapphire? How many types of pearls are there? If you're dazzled but bewildered by all the beautiful stones on the market, here's a quick guide to further your understanding of fine jewelry.
Shop for a quality diamond by remembering the four Cs: Carat, clarity, color and cut. Diamonds are delicate beauties, so if even one of these areas are sub-par, the whole piece will be, too. Never buy a diamond without asking to examine it through magnification, which will highlight any flaws invisible to the naked eye.
Color and luster are the key aspects of choosing a good pearl. Color, of course, because there are a dozen different types of pearls harvested worldwide, and depending on their region of origin they can be anything from a light ivory to a deep blue. Luster, meanwhile, is defined as a pearl's glow, which is a critical factor in determining its value.
The symbol of love, passion and power, blood-red rubies have been revered throughout history as one of nature's most evocative gems. You'll make a statement with a ruby, both by wearing one or giving it as a gift. This isn't the stone of half-hearted emotion.
Like rubies, sapphires have a long and culturally significant history. They also share many similar properties, both of them being semi-precious stones. That said, you can tell them apart by sheen, cut and color, especially if the sapphire is allowed to stay its rich, natural blue. Visit a jeweler like Shaneco.com to learn more.

Kids are the most excited during Christmas and I have to say that they are already awaiting to know what will be their gifts. Aside from letting them know that they will receive gifts Christmas, we should never forget to let them know that it is the birth of Jesus Christ and what truly is the meaning of this season. All over the world, we celebrate Christmas and we all have different Christmas traditions to follow. We often go to mass on Christmas Eve and share all the food served on the table and later on is Christmas exchange of gifts.
Christmas Day is spent going to relatives to give gifts and mostly kids will get their presents (money or gift form). Kids are clad in their best outfits, girls are mostly wearing dresses whiles boys have their polo shirts or t-shirts with cartoon characters. Dress up your kids comfortably so they can move and play freely.

If you’re finishing school or sixth form, or attending a formal event at university, then you’ll no doubt want a prom dress that really looks the part. Your classmates might go to their local designer store for an off-the-shelf ball gown, but what if you’re looking for something a bit different? Something that’s really ‘you’? Something that nobody else is likely to have?
Do you have to make a prom dress on your own, or could you choose something completely different and go against the grain? Here are a few ways to avoid looking like everyone else, whilst still looking your best on prom night:
Mix and Match Your Patterns
A lot of prom dresses are surprisingly plain and simple, and are mono-colour without detailed designs. Buy a patterned prom dress or party dress and you’re sure to stand out. You can either buy a prom dress with a single repeated pattern, or one that mixes a variety of different patterns and designs like the prom dresses and party dresses from Ginger Fizz.
Choose a Shorter Length Dress
Full-length prom dresses have their place, but if you want an alternative prom dress then they’re probably not your style. Knee-length and thigh-length dresses provide you with a lot more options, and a chance to show off your shoes. Want to turn up in a prom dress and a pair of Converse shoes? Nobody’s stopping you! Shorter prom dresses come in a wide range of styles, which means that you’ll have no trouble finding something that flatters your figure.
Vintage dresses are ideal for parties and proms. If you’re creative enough and brave enough to wear a dress in a style more than three decades old, then you’ll find that you’re flattered by laces, bows and ribbons that add a ‘classic’ look.
Wear Something Dark
Proms aren’t all about pretty pastel colours and sparkling jewels. In fact, there’s nothing wrong with showing up in something darker. How about a gorgeous designer dresses from Worn By, with prints and patterns for that rock star look?
Or Don’t Wear a Dress?
As much as people talk about find their perfect prom dress or party dress, they’re not the only option. In fact, more and more people are finding the confidence to ditch the dress and attend wearing a suit, or something a little more casual. Vila blazers are perfect accompaniments to a skirt or pair of trousers, and with the right accessories you can make any outfit look prom-ready.
Your prom night might be one of the most glamorous nights of your life, but to make an impression you’ll want to stand out from the crowd. Instead of visiting high street stores packed full with every other student fighting over the same dress at the same high price, why not find a party style of your own?
When you look back at your prom photograph, do you really want to blend with everyone else? Make sure that your outfit is one that you’ll love on the night, and you might even find that it becomes a wardrobe staple for other important events.

2. Take advice from the experts. When it comes to spa info, there are many online resources that will help you find exciting new services and products - see more at http://www.livelovespa.com/browse-spa-brands. You can sign up for any treatment that you would like at a spa, but there are probably some that will benefit you more than others. For instance, if you aren't an athlete, aren't injured, and don't suffer from chronic pain, a therapist would likely recommend a Swedish or hot stone massage for you rather than a deep tissue massage. If you're younger, a specialist might recommend an exfoliating facial scrub rather than a rejuvenating chemical peel. Again, you can choose whatever treatment you want, but remember that the specialists are experts and they are there to help you have the best experience.
3. Respect spa etiquette. Spas are one place where it is essential to be polite and respect etiquette; this helps maintain a good environment both for other visitors and for employees. When you visit a spa you should leave as much of the outside world at the door as possible. You should turn your cell phone off or refrain from talking on it and checking it constantly. This will help you relax while improving the experience of other guests. You should try to bring a positive attitude, which shouldn't be difficult, and be respectful to employees and other visitors. You should also show up early for appointments and make sure that, if you have to cancel, you do it as early as possible.
4. Be open with the spa specialists. Whether you're a seasoned spa-goer or relatively new to the experience, it's always important to communicate. The person who is providing your treatment needs to be aware of whether you are pregnant and have any allergies or injuries so that you can receive the most appropriate treatment. If you're having an unfamiliar treatment like a mud wrap or a more forceful treatment like a deep tissue massage, you'll have a better experience if you talk about what to expect and vocalize any pain or discomfort during the treatment.
When you're new to visiting spas, it's important to be open to new things, respectful of policies and employees, and up front about the kind of experience you are looking for. Besides keeping these things in mind, however, you shouldn't have to put any work into having an enjoyable spa experience.

Miley’s Haircut Inspired by a Jonas Brothers Wig
Miley told V magazine that the Jonas Brothers were a source of inspiration for her first haircut. She revealed that the idea of cutting her hair took effect after wearing a wig with a Jonas swoop. She liked the look of the short do and went for it.
Two weeks after wearing the wig, Miley had her hairstylist Chris McMillan shape her new do, and Pharell was the first to hear of the new makeover.
According to Cyrus, the new cut signaled her determination to change and to be different. And she certainly achieved what she set out to do. The new image, including the haircut, took the world by storm. While some people are all for it, a lot more people expressed their disapproval of Miley’s new image. But according to Miley, she’s not looking for other people’s opinions – she loves the new look and that’s all that matters. Subscribe to satellite TV at www.ExpertSatellite.com and get a firsthand look at celebrities with edgy haircuts.
Miley Reveals The Secret To Her Long Hair
Miley’s healthy brown hair became her trademark as the star of Hannah Montana. But Miley set the record straight, and no doubt disappointed her fan base when she revealed that her brown hair came down to extensions.
She pointed to a picture on the front page of Harper’s Bazaar – taken many years before – and reflected that it was a simple life then. But that simple life included 350 extensions in her hair. The hair was not real – at least not hair that grew out of her head.
Miley Loves Her Short Hair
While there’s a lot of buzz about the singer’s daring, edgy cut, Miley claims that she has no regrets. In fact, she loves it so much that she can’t imagine ever going back to having long hair. Women would agree that longer hair is more versatile. The problem is that most women style their long hair in a ponytail or bun. According to Cyrus, a bold new haircut is the best way to get out of a hairstyling rut.
A stylist suggested that Miley can always switch her look and add extensions if she wants to go long again. But according to the singer, that is out of the question because she hates extension. She goes so far as to say that they’re creepy.
The new style is low maintenance – just wash and wear. Miley claims it’s easier than that because the style looks fabulous even when it goes unwashed.
So as some onlookers lament the loss of Miley’s long hair, others are getting used to it because it’s here to stay.

The face is exposed to the pollution and dirt of the world. If you wish to make your skin glow healthy, then it is a must that you remove the contaminants, dirt as well as the extra oil that are damaging your skin. This can be done with the use of a cleansing cream. Apply this on the parts of your neck and face. Massage the cream gently into the skin by using gentle and upward strokes. Allow it to settle then pat your face dry with the use of a tissue or a cloth. Avoid rubbing at all costs. The rule of the thumb is to clean your skin twice a day-- once in the morning and once in the evening before you sleep.
When you cleanse your face properly, it can be a great substitute for toning. However, this extra step will remove any extra dirt, grime or cleanser in your face. Keep in mind that this should not be done on a daily basis. You can opt for skin toning two to three times a week. This is best done once your skin has been exposed to harmful chemicals and conditions.
This is also optional but is highly recommended if you wish to avoid having to deal with blackheads and pimples since this extra step allows you to get rid of the dead skin cells that may clog your pores. When you exfoliate, you are allowing your skin to replenish for every three weeks. This should also be done twice or thrice a week only.
This is a very vital step of the facial skin care process. When you moisturize, you are preventing your skin from drying up. When you have dry skin, you will look old and weary and no one wants that. When your skin is dry, it will be easy for the epidermis to break and this may result to higher number of skin cells.
A lot of women are already aware of these four elements of a good facial skin care. However, the importance of these processes should not be overlooked as all the processes work hand in hand with each other. Never skip any of these and ensure that you are using a high quality professional skin care product like DDF skincare. With the right knowledge and the right ammunition, your face will surely be on its way to beauty and youthful glow.
Choosing a particular scent can be daunting at times but it really depends on the preference and personality of the wearer. Some may opt for strong scents that can quickly attract anyone that goes near her while some women just want mild or fine scents that will not annoy some people. Perfumes can come in various scents like fruity, woody, floral, oriental, fresh, and citrus just to name a few.

But since the eyes are this season’s highlight, one must wonder how to use this season’s lipstick trends, as they are also very spectacular and daring. There are at least four major such trends, although the designers and the big fashion houses have already started to envision and promote next spring’s style.
1. Smokey eyes and nude lipstick
Beauty consultants say that perfectly-crafted smoky eyes represent a statement for women who are cool, with an underground allure and a very sophisticated attitude. And since this type of eye make-up is meant to take the cake and be the highlight, fashion designers displayed a combination of big, impressive eyes and nude or pale pink lips for a striking contrast and a dash of innocence to soften the grunge aspect of their models. Pale pink, pale peach, these are the best choices of lipstick when it comes to show off your cat eye style, in perfect harmony with an impeccable skin tone and contoured features
2. Light make-up with dark purple lips
It is indeed an act of bravery to get out of the house wearing dark purple or plum lipstick, but it made a riot on fashion podiums and beauty magazines. It is fascinating, intriguing and demanding, as not many women have the perfect lips for such a color, nor the clean, smooth skin tone to match this courageous style. History has witnessed some moments of dark lipstick display and even today some rock concerts count among the participants fans of the gothic style, but this is something completely different. Purple lipstick goes great with nude and light eye make-up, has nothing to do with any type of underground movement and is a preferred make-up tendency by huge labels such as Lanvin, Oscar de la Renta or Fendi.
3. Shady lips and bright eyes
Summer is gone and so is the perfect contoured lips and mate lipstick textures. This season comes with shady lips in burgundy, dark red wine and forest fruit nuances. The shades can be created from the interior to the exterior and the other way around, depending on what effect you intend to obtain and major labels such as Armani or Marni seem to be very fond of this style, which is indeed a beauty statement. However, it requires even more skill to obtain the lip shades and to play with nuances transgressing progressively from dark burgundy to fruity, but if you can do it, the results will be spectacular. No much effort is needed for the eyes in this case, either, as light make-up is all you need when your lips are the guests of honor.
Also, you should remember that red is still a fashionable color for this season’s lipsticks, in mate textures and intense nuances. Vibrant effects can be obtained with strawberry nuances and pigments. However, take a look over the trends subjected to debate for the next season, as you will have the surprise of your life when seeing neon orange lipstick as a major 2014 make-up trend, matched with more natural make-up and fashion styles.

This is simple, five minute and above all manageable hairstyle that can give you a clean cut look and make it look like you went the extra mile on a simple hairstyle First spray your hair smooth with hairspray, then pull your hair back into a ponytail and secure it with elastic. Use your fingers to separate your hair above elastic and create a hole that is centred above it. Pull the ponytail through the hole and pull it taut. Smart, simple, professional.
DIY Ballerina Bun
If you need to look elegant and like you really tried with your hair without wasting the effort this is a hairstyle that really makes it look like you care. Flip your hair into a high ponytail, use a holder to secure. Use a smoothing brush to tease your hair to give the illusion of volume, alternately if you don’t have the hair volume a BioTHIK treatment may be worth considering. Next, twist your hair and wrap it around the base to create the shape. Secure this with bobby pins until you can shake your head without slipping. Then just smooth the hair down.
This will give a bouncy excitable and cheerful image to a hairstyle and will make you seem lively and fully energized. First pull your hair into a ponytail, tease out the length, starting at the hair tie. Then tie another elastic band around the ponytail about a third of the way down from the base, then another about two thirds of the way down. Finally slide the elastic bands toward the base. This should bunch things up and create bubbles.
A twisted chignon can pull of an elegant look and project a simple no-fuss attitude that will make you look intense and focused. First, get your hair straight and tie a low ponytail. Then twist the ponytail, if you’re feeling energetic divide it into separate sections and wrap them around each other. Then secure them with another hair band. Curl the twisted hair around the base of the ponytail. Once there’s a full circle around the base, pin the other end of the ponytail to your head.
This is another cool twist on a basic ponytail that you don’t’ have to wrestle with. Divide your hair in half and tie it in a double knot. Secure the knotted ponytail with an elastic band and a couple of pins, then just tease the end, done and dusted no fuss muss and only two minutes work.
So if you’re running late, or you just don’t feel like really fixing your hair on the way out of the door, this is a quick way to get things done.

There are some people who think that leather jackets are for rugged style only, but the truth is, women's leather jackets can be worn together with jeans, skirts, and even long dress. You just need to find the jacket that will perfectly fit your frame or body type to make your whole outfit to work. Finding one can be a challenge though but there are some shops that offer their customers customized leather jackets wherein jackets are made solely for them according to their measurements.
Leather jacket is not only a good piece of clothing that can make any woman chic and fab but it can be a perfect partner for cold winter days that can warm your body.
Here are some of the ways on how to wear a leather jacket.
To look your best in your eyeglasses you’ll need to first get glasses that perfectly complement the shape of your face. While you might like the look and design of a certain pair of frames, you might not necessarily like the way that they look on your face. Find out what will work best for your features before you start your search for cheap glasses.
If you have a face that has a circular shape, you’ll have well rounded cheeks, a wider forehead and a full chin. Everything on your face will be proportional as far as the width and length is concerned. Circular faces are well suited for frames that have lenses that are wider than they are deep. You can also try out frames that have a gentle upsweep at the edges in order to adequately complement your eyes and your cheeks. Other viable options are frames that will add angles to your face and dark-colored frames.
Round and oval faces have great balance and a softly curving jawline that is only slightly narrower than the person’s forehead. The cheekbones will sit high on the face, which is perfect for a variety of frames.
Your best bet will be either rectangular or square frames that will generously complement the curved lines of your face. One thing to keep in mind if you have a round or oval shaped face is that you’ll want to beware of frames that are either too big or too small for your face since they can ruin the natural balance of your features.
Individuals with square faces will have a broad forehead, square-shaped chin and a strong jawline. You’ll also have even proportions in terms of the length and width of your face. In order to find the frames that suit your square face the best, be on the lookout for frames that really let your features stand out.
Stick with round or oval-shaped frames as a way to add balance to your naturally straight lines. If you’ve got your eye on a rectangular pair of frames, look for frames that have subdued edges and steer clear of sharp corners.
You’ll know you have a heart-shaped face if you have a broad forehead that curves down to a small chin. Your angled cheekbones will sit high on your face, which means you’ll need to make sure that the eyeglasses that you get will properly balance the rest of your face.
As you’re shopping for frames, find ones that are wider at the bottom than they are at the top in order to minimize your broad forehead. One of the very best things about having a heart face is that you can confidently pull off nearly any style of frame.
A face that has more length than width is considered to be rectangular. Additional characteristics of rectangular faces are high cheekbones and longer noses and foreheads. By getting the right lenses for your face, you’ll be able to divide the length of your face and add width as well.
Select a pair of frames that have a prominent or strong brow line that will give you the necessary horizontal element near your forehead. You can also bring balance to your face by getting frames that have a bit of depth to the lenses. You can also round out the angularity of your rectangular face with frames that have gently curving lines and rounded edges. Frames to sidestep include narrow and small frames and lenses that will bring attention to the overall length of your face.
Be sure that you’re constantly thinking about the shape of your face, your fashion sense and your skin tone as you’re picking out glasses in order to find the most complementary match.
