How To Find The Best Earrings

Most of us just buy whichever earrings we like - we look for a particular color, stone, desinger etc. But little do most people know that the right earrings can accentuate your best features and make you look gorgeous, while a not so suitable pair could cast a shadow over your beauty.

 Your face shape determines what hair style, glasses, earrings etc suit you best. 

Oval Face

Jessica Biel is an example of oval face shape. She can get away with wearing almost anything.

  • Features: Forehead is wider than the chin, with a gently rounded hair line. Length is approximately equal to one and a half times width.
  • Best pair: The oval is considered the perfect shape and pretty much everything suits it. So experiment! Try classic studs, big hoops, all sorts of funky shapes.
  • Avoid: Too long earrings. They can create the illusion of longer face and "pull'' you down, which oval-shaped beauties don't want.

Round Face

Chandelier and teardrop earrings, as well as triangular  that have thetapered point at the top and work well to broaden the chin and narrow the forehead.
