For us girls, we do our best just to make us look fabulous. It is in our nature to beautify ourselves for the sake of almost everything (lol!) but little do we know that maintaining ourselves isn't just about the hair, the body, and the face.
When it comes to styling we treat earrings like a cinnamon on the top of the cappuccino: only an “add-up”, but little did we know that this "cinnamon" has a major role in enhancing your overall look. When it comes on spicing up our looks we should also give attention in what kind of earrings would we wear, believe me, you really need to know this for you to get the ultimate look.
Choosing the right kind of earrings based on your face shape is one of the smartest way for you to achieve your best look. So now, the question is which type of earrings should you match when your face shape? Read the article below to know more about it.
There are six types of face shapes: round, diamond, narrow, square, oval and heart shape. Each one has a type of earring that suites their resemblance.
But before we proceed to the earring types we should elaborate each of the face shapes first.
Round shape - Also called circular faces, round faces features are widest at the cheekbones. The cheekbones do not taper down to the chin as with other face shapes. An example of people who have a round face is award winning actress Ginnifer Goodwin.
Diamond shape - On the diamond-shaped face, the forehead and chin are narrower than the cheekbones. Women with diamond-shaped faces tend to have very strong cheekbones. Celebrities such as Rihanna has a diamond shaped face.
Narrow shape - Sometimes called a "rectangular" face, the narrow face has the same general shape as a square face but is elongated. It still has a certain width on the jaws compare to oval shaped faces. Celebrity such as Liv Tyler is one of the people who have narrow shape faces.
Square shape - The forehead, cheeks, and jaws are all about the same width on a square-shaped face. Women with square-shaped faces tend to have very strong jaw lines. An example of a person having a square shape face is the award winning actress Angelina Jolie.
Oval shape - Oval-shaped faces feature foreheads that are as wide as the cheekbones. The face narrows from the cheeks to the chin, creating the oval shape. Charlize Therone is one of the celebrities who have the oval shape face.
Heart shape - Heart-shaped faces feature a forehead that is wider than the cheeks. The cheeks further taper down to the chin. Ashanti is one of the celebrities who have a heart shape face.
Types of earrings
After the face shapes, let me tell you the different types of earrings before we proceed on matching. Listed below is the type of earrings and its explanations.
Dangle earrings are those pieces which dangle below the earlobe. They may be composed of beads, rounds, squares, curved pieces of metal, or die-cut metal designs. An example of dangle earrings is our Arielle Pearl Earrings.
These classic earrings are composed of a single stone, ball, or small design that sits directly on the earlobe. An example of stud earrings is our Dazzling Sphere Earrings.
Chandelier earrings combine the design elements of a stud and drop earrings. These earrings feature a decorative stud that sits on the earlobe and a component that dangles below the earlobe. A sample of a chandelier earring is our Rosemance Pearl Drop Earrings.
These classic earrings are made from rounded or flat pieces of metal or plastic that run from the front to the back of the earlobe. They are available in a wide variety of circumferences and widths. A sample of a hoop earring is our Sassy Hoops earrings.
Huggie earrings are like hoop earrings but are usually much smaller. These earrings generally have a wide, small hoop that clamps onto the ear with a post or clip-on mechanism. An example of a huggie earring is our Classic Crystal Huggie Earrings.
Cluster earrings sit on the earlobe but feature clusters of gemstones, rhinestones, or other decorative elements that may extend beyond the bottom of the earlobe. These earrings are best suited to dressy events as they tend to be very flashy. A sample of it is our Seraphic Dangle Earrings.
