how to choose the right colour of your new spectacles

Hi
I said I would take the subject of choosing the right colour to the right frame shape and here comes that chapter.
If you are light skin coloured and your hair is blond you should choose light coloured frames so you wouldn’t be like a walking glasses.
If you want to use black or dark coloured frames you can as a statement glasses just make sure that your eyes will not be hidden behind your glasses and get a good eye contact through the frame. Not just to your self in the mirror but also to the salesperson.
Take metal frames, they are not as dominant on the face as acetate frames and take dark brown frames instead of black, they are less dominant.
But if you are light skin and dark haired. You can choose dark coloured frames and you have more to choose from but just remember eye contact.
But to get statement frames for you take white frames they make the contrast to the dark hair.
If you are dark skinned then you can choose dark or black frames and try to skip the light coloured frames. As the other types you are able to make statement with light colours that stick out from your natural dark look.
I hope this will help you to choose the right colour. I haven’t talked about other than, dark or light, black and white, because there is always the fashion colour of the year or the season, or your own favourite colour. So just choose your colour but take light or dark to fit your skin and hair tone.
With best regards

How to choose the right glasses

Hi how are you?
I have been asked to write about, how i help men to choose the right spectacles .
That is not a easy task.
First advise, take your girlfriend or wife with you before the final decision.
Second is the shape of the face.
  • Round : should try to avoid round  or oval glasses, because it’s makes the  face more bold and more round. Try frames that are more rectangular so the face gets a visual feeling of being thinner, and for even more effect get frames, that are narrower at the bottom. (google Jack Nicholson and see what i mean.)
  • Oval: is very common face form, where the face is long from top to bottom, but with round corners. This is one of the easiest face forms to work with. Because you can use most of the frame forms. Round help thin mens to get more boldness, oval to put more focus on the eyes. Square frames make the face more masculine and rectangular makes the best harmony with the face form by horizontal rectangular make the face wider and the vertical rectangular make’s the face longer. (google Harrison Ford)
  • Square: this form can use round frames to soften the fairly hard form. Square frames get the most harmony and rectangular frames works  as well to make the face longer (google Arnold Schwarzenegger or Brad Pitt  )
  • Rectangular: is a fairly long face form, but as same as oval  it can take almost al type of frame forms. And the customer is able to change his face form with glasses make it more round with round frames and wide with more square frames or horizontal rectangular frames ( google Lyle Lovett or Ben Stiller)
  • Diamond is a face form where the thin chin point down but the  top is wide. This face takes best square frames or square with smaller bottom than the top. (google Bradley Cooper or Daniel Craig)

Hope this will help, the next chapter is the color
