Characteristics of a Diamond Shaped Face

Having a diamond-shaped face is the rarest shape to have! The year 2017 states that this type of face shape was the most desired form by women. This response was due to the elegance and femininity that the diamond-shaped face actress Megan Fox showed.
Celebrities other than Megan Fox that possess a diamond face shape are Jennifer Lopez, Johnny Depp, Elizabeth Hurley, Jesse Eisenberg, Scarlett Johansson, Kourtney Kardashian, etc.

If your face is narrower at the top and the bottom than it is in the middle, you are considered to have a diamond-shaped look. To determine if you have a diamond face shape, all you have to do is take a look in the mirror or snap a selfie-and trace a line from the centre of your hairline to each side of your cheekbones and down to your chin. If the result is the shape of a rhombus, you must have a diamond-shaped face.

This sort of face has a narrow forehead and a pointed chin. Their cheekbones are usually high and form the widest part of the face. In contrast to the heart-shaped faces, the main difference between the heart-shaped and the diamond-shaped faces is that a diamond face shape has a tapered hairline.

How to Choose Sunglasses For a Diamond Shaped Face

As we already said, it is essential to choose the right style of glasses that fits your features. When shopping for eyeglasses, be open to all the options and don’t limit yourself to just one particular type. If full-rimmed glasses look great on your face shape, so will rimless and semi-rimmed glasses with the right style. Plus, this can help you work your fashion spirit as well if you are a fashionista.

So next time you are shopping for eyewear, here are some tips you could use and keep in mind to assist you in buying the perfect pair of glasses:

  • Do not hesitate to buy frames that are opposite to your face shape. Cat-eye frames and horn-rimmed glasses fit perfectly on diamond-shaped faces.
  • If certain frames that are fierce and bold do not interest you, that is totally fine! Oval frames and rectangular ones work just fine to help you keep that casual look, and it softens the angular features in your face.
  • Buying big-style glasses with bold colours and thick rims will distract people from looking at the face structure. It will draw the attention of your facial features and to the thick, bold glasses. You can check out our Frame Size Guide to learn more about how to size your sunglasses properly!
  • Whenever possible, always try your eyewear gadget in person. This will ensure that the glasses picked's style and colour are suitable for your facial features, skin tone, and style.

Thus, the angular features of a diamond-shaped face work perfectly with softly-curved frames or with rectangular glasses that have contrasting lines. Do not be afraid to try bolder and daring styles that compliment your face shape too!
