Selecting the right gaming glasses isn't just about lens technology and blue light filtration (although we do go above and beyond in that department); it's also about how they look and feel on your face. The perfect pair of frames can enhance your features, complement your face shape, and elevate your gaming setup. Here's how to pick perfect frames to match your unique face shape!
Oval Face Shape:
Oval faces are characterized by balanced proportions, with a chin slightly narrower than the forehead. If you have an oval face, you're lucky—most frame shapes will complement your features! However, to maintain the natural harmony of your face, go for frames that are as wide as the broadest part of your face. Usually, the rectangle is very complimentary and will have you looking super hot.
The Inferno – Sleek and modern, it is bold enough to stand out but chill enough to wear all the time. Also, it has a sun clip, so you don't have to purchase a separate pair of sunglasses.
The Walden – A classic rectangle with a soft finish that is perfect for every day and also formal occasions
Round Face Shape:
Round faces have soft curves with similar width and height. The goal for round face shapes is to add definition, so choose angular frames that will sharpen your features. Square frames can provide a contrast to your shape and make your face look longer and slimmer. It's all about balance, baby.
The Augment – With a taller measurement and a square top with a more rounded bottom, these would flatter a round face shape perfectly.
The Slay - A more square pilot frame with thicker temples and a bold look.
Square Face Shape:
Square faces feature a strong jawline and forehead with the width and length in proportion. To soften these features, opt for frames that are round or oval. These shapes will help balance and add another dimension to your angular face.
The Storm - A round, more petite frame that perfectly balances sharper features. Like the Infernos, this frame comes with a sun clip.
The Horizon – These frames have soft, nonangular edges that flatter any face type but accentuate a square one.
Heart-shaped faces have a broad forehead that tapers to a narrow chin. Frames that are wider at the bottom will help balance the width of the forehead. Consider frames with an aviator style that will make you POP and make people fall in love (get it bc the heart shape).
The Diablo – With a nod to classic aviation, these metal frames add a touch of adventure.
The Terra – A smaller, rounder aviator that is a perfect compliment to a narrow chin.
The Specter - a perfect aviator with a sun clip that is classic, and has mixed materials for a dynamic look.
Diamond Face Shape:
Diamond faces are narrow at the eye line and jawline, with cheekbones being the widest part of the face. Highlight your eyes and soften your cheekbones with frames that have detailing or distinctive brow lines to make you shine bright like a diamond.
The Arbor – A timeless cat-eye frame that has a unique, distinctive look.
The Horizon (again) – How can we not? With so many fun colors and its flexible look, it's great for most face shapes but flatters a diamond face shape.
Your gaming glasses are more than just protective gear; they're a part of your persona. Whether you're streaming to an audience or immersing yourself in a solo adventure, the right frames can boost your look and confidence. Remember to consider your face shape when choosing your next pair of gaming glasses, and you'll feel better and up your game.
