It’s always great to have lots of choices, but sometimes you need help narrowing down your selection. With so many frames to choose from at Zenni, finding the most flattering style for your face shape can seem difficult. Luckily for you, we put together a helpful infographic that outlines how to choose glasses for your specific face shape. No matter what you look like, you can use this to know exactly which glasses will make you look and feel glamorous and trendy. In this post, though, we’re focusing on one face type in particular – the heart-shaped face! We’ve scoured our wide selection of products to find some of our favorite eyeglasses to complement those sweet, heart-shaped faces out there.
Best Glasses for Heart-Shaped Faces
A heart-shaped face is characterized by a small chin, broad forehead, and high, well-defined cheekbones (lucky you!). Base-up-triangle faces are widest at the forehead with a narrow chin. So, to look your best and brightest, avoid bottom-heavy frames, oversized frames, and frames with a lot of design elements. Try to avoid top heavy styles or decorative designs, and instead opt for something soft and smooth-edged. The goal is to draw attention to the top of the face. If you’re looking to soften your angular features, a rimless style is especially flattering. We suggest round and square frames. For balancing the widths of your face, look for ultra-flattering thin and lighter framed glasses.
Finding the Style for You
Good news: you’re the perfect candidate for the translucent frame trend! Read on for a selection of our favorite eyeglasses that perfectly complement heart-shaped faces.
Sandy taupe translucent frames add the perfect touch of softness to heart-shaped faces. Complement your features with round glasses in this warm, flattering hue for a more modern take on classic neutrals. This soft color is a blank slate, well-suited for just about any look you could think of – grab a pair for a delicate, everyday accessory or dress them up in a pinch with bolder eye makeup or a little black dress.

Translucent frames don’t need to be ice-clear. Take the trend to the next level with a touch of color, like a soft pink. Give your eye color a little extra contrast and add just enough playfulness to your eyewear to turn heads. The subtle pop of blush pink will accentuate your well-defined cheekbones while keeping your look understated and chic (if you don’t love blush pink, don’t miss the sandy beige for a more neutral take on this trend). Our favorite color combo? Pale pink translucent frames with gunmetal gray clothing for an elegant, high-contrast look.
