Hello, I am Anne Wilterdink Morgan with Color and Image Insight, and I am showing you how to choose your most flattering eyeglasses.
Right now, I am showing you how to balance your facial features with your eyeglasses. First, I want to talk about the spacing of your eyes. Ideal spacing between the eyes is considered to be about one eyes with the part and as we look at Terry, actually her eyes are spaced approximately one eyes with the part. However, because her facial triangle, which is the shape formed by her eyes and mouth because that facial triangle is on the wide side. She gives the appearance of more widely spaced eyes.
The opposite situation as if you have a longer facial triangle in which case the eyes what appear closer set together or less than one eyes with the part. Not too surprisingly, this often correlates with the length of the face, but not always. So, how do you balance a widely set eye? If you see what happens when I put something right in between her eyes like that, you can see that draws them together visually, whereas if I take that away and draw your attention to the outer parts of her face, then you have a sense of a greater width. So, that’s what you do with the glasses. If you want to make the eyes appear closer together, you choose something with the heavier, contrasting, or deeper bridge, that’s that space between the eyes right over the nose there.
The opposite situation, if you have a longer facial triangle or the wider spaced eyes, what you want to do is have a pair, choose this one, that has a fairly unobtrusive bridge and some kind of a detail to draw your eye outward, and that creates a sense of greater width in that area.
Next I want to talk about the length of the nose. Similarly, if you put something here, you see that the length of the nose is visually cut shortened, and so for a long nose, you would want to have a lower bridge, like that, then if you had a short nose that you wanted to create more length, in which case you want that bridge to be as close to the top of the frame as possible and that creates a longer line. It can also be flattering to actually match the shape of your eyes with the shape of your lenses. Be sure once again to always have the eyes centered in the lenses. So, that’s how to balance the facial features with your glasses. Next, I am going to discuss other considerations in choosing your eyeglasses.
