Default Face shape?

Ok so I might have to be getting reading glasses soon and I've been researching what frames look good on what face shape. But I don't really know what face shape I have... what do you all think?

The angle makes it a little hard to tell - it's best when you look at the face straight on, but I'd say heart shape.

A good way to be sure is stand in front of a mirror, pull all your hair back into a ponytail, and then with some sort of washable marker or lipstick, draw the outline of your face. It should give you a good idea of your shape.

I also think glasses with ovals or rectangles would look good on you. Rounds may make you look a little childish. And your face is probably heart-shaped... from what I guess from the picture.

You're very pretty!

I recommend heading over to one of the big box stores that has a vision center and trying on frames. While going with your face shape can give you some general guidelines, I have often found that I like frames on me that didn't fit that mold.

It is best to try on some frames before your actual appointment, that way you aren't in a time crunch and bringing a friend that you trust is also recommended

I would agree that it is a heart but being someone who has wears glasses and has for a very long time, I would say you can do all the online research you want but wont know until you start trying them on. The sales people can be helpful but you should also take a friend who will give you an honest opinion.

I'd say definetly go for something more square than circle-shaped. My glasses are soft - cornered sort of rectangles if that makes sense. They're pretty comfy - I think they'd go with your face shape too.

Yeah, I forgot to mention I have a heart-shaped face too and I wear glasses somewhere between rectangles and ovals.
