The right pair of eyeglasses can immediately elevate your look to boss level. A stylish frame that suits your face will survive any change in fashion trends while keeping you looking good, good looking!
Eye and sunglasses should complement your style - not define it. You want to use them as a stylish accent, not a novelty item. So exercise some restraint. A basic rule for the shape of your glasses — figure out what your face is lacking and get frames that provide it. If, for example, you have an angular face with lots of lines and planes, you will want rounded glasses to add curves in there. If you have a soft face with curving features, you'll do better in straight or angled glasses.
Remember this is only a guide and meant to aid your grooming journey. Embrace your individuality, play with different styles of glasses and break the rules - so long as you find the perfect eyeglasses for your face!
Oval face shape:
Almost any pair of glasses can work. Choose frames as wide as or slightly wider than the broadest part of your face. Glasses with detailed embellishments also look great as they play up the high cheekbones typical of an oval face. A Square frame, a round frame with on-trend details, or the classic and versatile rectangular silhouette will all flaunt a sophisticated, professional look.
Oblong face shape:
Choosing frames with tall rims will help create balanced proportions on an oblong face which is long and slender, and may have high cheekbones, a long nose, and a tall forehead. Also, broad rims with color-accented tops or decorative temples can help add width to your oblong face shape.
Round face shape:
Choose frames as wide as they are tall to create the illusion of a slimmer face. Aim for styles that add contrast to your face's natural curves, and avoid frames that exaggerate the roundness of it. Glasses with strong angles and lines will add definition to your face and downplay the fullness in your cheeks. A clear or thin bridge will make your eyes appear wider while adjustable nose pads will keep the frames from resting directly on your cheeks.
Square face shape:
Choose thinner frames with lots of curves for contrast and to soften the angles in your face. Round, oval, or cat-eye frames complement a square face—their curved lines will help lengthen and soften your features. Opt for a glasses style with rims wider than they are tall.
Rectangle face shape:
A rectangular face has the same angles as a square one, but a longer appearance. Round, Oval and aviator frames can bring balance to your face shape with deeper (top to bottom) frames that contrast the face shape. Stay away from rectangle frames as you can soften your angular lines with rounded frames that are a little thinner. Also ensure the frames’ width is a little wider than your cheekbones.
Triangle face shape:
The best frames for triangle face shapes will add width and draw attention to the top of the face. Conspicuously stylish, accented eyeglasses work best. Look for frames with noticeable color or detailing, like cat-eye, rectangle or even oval shapes. Find frames with a darker upper rim as wide as the lowest, widest portion of your face.
Diamond face shape:
Focus on eyeglasses with angular, edgy elements to complement the angular features of your face. This will soften the cheekbones and draw attention directly to your eyes. Wider frames will balance your look and lend a dramatic, stylish touch to your features. Avoid narrow eyeglass frames, as they will further emphasize your narrow eye line.
Heart face shape:
Look for frames that minimize the top of your face and make your chin look wider—choosing a style wider than your forehead will help achieve both. And decorative accents at the endpoints of the frame (think cat-eye silhouettes or Ray-Ban's Clubmaster) will help draw the eye away from the forehead. Frames in light colors or with detailing, like a tortoise or floral pattern, will help soften your features. The heart-shaped face is versatile, so many glasses styles will suit you.

Your “look” depends on your beard style, haircut, sunglasses, etc and these things can be “optimized” by understanding your face shape. Hence, knowing and calculating your face shape is a very important step in your grooming journey. With that, grab a flexible tape measure, follow the guidelines and write down the following measurements (in inches or centimeters).
The golden rule for the perfect beard shape is that your beard and jaw should work together to achieve a nicely graduated, oval shape. For example, if you have a square or rounded jaw, you will want to grow your beard fuller on the bottom to elongate or stretch your face. If you have an oblong or rectangular face, you will want to grow more hair on the sides while avoiding length beneath the chin.
