How to Choose the Right Accessories for Your Face Shape

There are some accessories and beauty buys that can be used by pretty much anyone, as they don’t look any different from person to person. Examples of this include hair ties and pins, as well as certain shades of eyeliner and mascara, but of course there are many more that I haven’t mentioned.
On the other hand, there are products that will provide different looks depending on who is using them, meaning that there could be accessories that look better on you than someone else, as well as the other way around. It can sometimes feel a bit tricky trying to find the perfect accessory to suit your face shape, so I thought it might be helpful to share a few tips to help you on your way...

Picking Glasses & Sunglasses
Whether you need glasses to read or simply wear sunglasses for comfort and style, the whole process of choosing them can be a little bit overwhelming. There are so many frames to try on that it can be difficult knowing where to start.
As a starting point, it’s worth noting that Tesco Opticians can provide prescription glasses to suit your face shape - the staff are able to point out certain styles that could complement your features. If you can’t make it into a store, you can try out their ‘Frames on Me’ tool online that will let you try some frames on virtually instead!

Choosing Headbands
It might seem like a simple process going into a shop and picking up a couple of headbands that are on special offer, but it is worth considering how they will actually look and feel. We all know that are features are unique to us, so it is really the best solution to make the most of them.
When it comes to headbands, think whether it will look right proportionately, and how it will affect your hairline and the amount of forehead you have on show. Not only that but the size and weight of some styles (especially those with embellishments) might make them uncomfortable to wear after a couple of hours.

Selecting Hats
If you're one of the many people who have said the words, “hats don’t suit me”, it might be time to re-evaluate your thoughts! Whilst not all hats may suit you, there is likely to be one out there that will leave you feeling proud of your appearance. Like other accessories, they come in different shapes, colours and sizes, so it is just down to finding the winning combination for you.
Spend some time in a large department store trying on a number of different styles to narrow the options down, and then try and build up your confidence to wear one out. Hats are very “in” right now so it could be the perfect time!

I hope these tips will help you to own your accessories in the future, but I’d also love to hear your own tips and bits of advice for picking them. What do you find most difficult to buy for your face shape? Please leave me a comment and let me know!
