Known to be the cutest, the face is close to the same length from the tip of the nose to all sides and most extensive at cheekbones.
Drop, and long earrings are the best for people with a round-shaped face because that makes their face appear elongated and slimmer. They can try earrings studded with small gemstones or pearls for more attractive looks .
Avoid circle, round ones as it echoes the face shape.
This is believed to be one of the most attractive face shapes. The forehead may be slightly wider than the chin with a well-rounded jawline to the bottom.
Having an oval face is lucky; such faces are adaptable for almost all types of earrings. Long, dangling, drop earrings that are thinner at the top and widen at the bottom is recommended.
The width of the forehead and jawline are noticeably similar in people with square faces. Square/flat chin with a forehead straight along the hairline is their uniqueness.
Women with square faces look excellent in rounded earrings. They can also try large oval hoops or teardrop shaped earrings, which can attract attention from the squareness of your face. However, avoid hovers and small studs.
A rectangular face is similar to a square face, with the same width existing across the forehead, cheeks, and chin; the change comes in length – these faces are more extended than square faces (merely speaking, they are elongated square-shaped face).
The cheekbone of people with the diamond-shaped face will be more extensive than both forehead and chin.
Earrings for a diamond faced girl should have a wider bottom, such as teardrops, small hoops or studs. Avoid earrings that are too long, and narrow, and heavy on the top.
People with forehead wider than the width of the jawline and more pointed chin with jawline tapering down to it is said to have a heart-shaped face.
Long earrings that feature curving shapes can accentuate these people’s prominent cheekbones. Ornate chandelier earrings, long teardrops in metal, gemstones, or diamond styles (more rounded at the bottom) will be the best, as they can soften the look of their pointier chin.
Avoid wearing slim drop earrings as this directs attention to the jaw.
