Face Shapes and Frame Style Recommendation

The importance of determining our face shape and picking the dedicated frame style has become inevitable. After understanding our face shape – we avoid making wrong picks and order a frame that fits sensationally well on our visage.

This can be tricky – as before making a decision - we must evaluate the highs and lows of our face to choose a style that accords the best bang for our buck. Which face shape do you exhibit?
