WHY DOES FACE SHAPE MATTER?
Knowing your face shape is vital to getting a pair of glasses that properly suits you. But working out what your face shape is in the first place can be tricky. It is often advised to draw a line of lipstick around your face to visualise the overall shape. But who wants that? The virtual try on tool steps up to the mark: it tells you what face shape you have. Now you can narrow down your frame style search to the designs that suit your specific face shape. There are so many styles on offer, it would otherwise be near impossible to know where to look! Some examples are: cat-eye frames can really suit an oval shaped face, while square shaped faces can look great in round or oval frames. If you have a round face, classic rectangle frames could be right for you.
TIPS ON TAKING A GOOD SELFIE
Whether shopping online or in person, it is always good to get a second opinion. You can share your virtual try on experience with friends and family via social media. As a result, you may want to make sure you are looking your best! Follow these simple tips to get it spot on.
Consider the Lighting
This is the most important element to any great photo or video. Natural lighting is usually best, especially when you’re trying on glasses, as the sun can really bring out your eye colour.
Where to Look
Don’t be that person in the group photo with their eyes shut or looking the wrong way. Hold the camera slightly above your eye line so that your face is tilted up towards it. This should guarantee you the best angle for your virtual try on.
Everyone looks better when they’re smiling, so why wouldn’t you when trying on glasses! And hopefully you will love the look of the frames that you will have no choice but to smile. Don’t hesitate to repeat the video as many times as you like until you get that perfect shot.
It is a photo after all, so while you’re focused on your facial features, don’t forget to give your hair a little attention too! Think about how it can frame your face and alter the look of your glasses. It is also worth bearing in mind that hair colour should compliment your frame colour.
