Round

If circular is the best way to describe your face, linear would be the way to go. Long, thin lines add a degree of slimness that can serve well in elongating your face. Anything that has hoops or globular elements can overwhelm, so it’s best to avoid them.

Square

Square faces have an angularity about them that is strong. Soft shapes are flattering on a face of this type. Ovals and hoops can add a feminine touch to the jawline. However, squares and rectangles add to the edges and can take away from the personality instead of complimenting.

Oval

Among the more versatile face shapes that can effortlessly carry just about any pair of earrings, is the oval. However, drops and studs draw interest to the cheekbones accentuating the angles in the most flattering way.

Heart

When the face is wider at the top and narrower at the bottom, it qualifies for earrings with shapes that branch out towards the end and taper in the beginning. It helps offset the triangular nature and highlights just the right features.

Oblong/Rectangular

Classic studs or earrings in curvy details can add a sense of fullness to oblong and rectangular faces. Drops and long, tapering earrings are not so suited and can be avoided.

The overarching theme is to wear a pair that goes against the shape of your face for a counterbalance. So go on, pick out the most flattering pair of earrings at www.miabytanishq.com!
