H1 Tag: How to Find the Most Flattering Earrings for Your Face Shape 


From office hours to Happy Hour, your look evolves throughout the day. So, you may not think twice about sporting your go-to hoop earrings with every outfit, no matter the occasion.


Similar to how you might avoid a dress with horizontal stripes, not every earring style will flatter your unique face shape. That’s why we’ve curated the ultimate guide for how to choose the best earrings for your features.


Whether you have a sleek oval-shaped face or an elegant diamond-shaped contour, choosing the right earrings for your face shape can elevate your look and fortify your confidence. 


Round-Shaped Face

If your face is the same length from cheekbone to cheekbone as it is from your forehead to your chin, you have a round-shaped face. Just like round-face celebs Drew Barrymore and Kate Bosworth, you’ll want to choose earrings that give the illusion of elongating your face.

Dangle earrings work best because they extend from your earlobe, often with a jewel or eye-catching design at the bottom. Because of their length, our attention is drawn downward, making them the ideal earrings for a round face.


Heart-Shaped Face

As its name suggests, you sport a heart-shaped face if your forehead is the widest part of your face–resembling the top of the heart. Your jawline is sleek and ends with a slender chin, similar to the bottom point of the heart. Think of Gwyneth Paltrow and Reese Witherspoon as your heart-shaped sisters! The ideal set of earrings for a heart-shaped face will provide balance to your facial features. 

If you have a heart-shaped face, you’ll want to opt for teardrop-shaped earrings. Not only are they versatile and make even a casual ensemble chic, but their wide-based shape also will give your face instant symmetry.

Square-Shaped Face

When you look in the mirror, do you see structured cheekbones? Are they the same width as your forehead? And is your jawline the same width as both of them? If so, then you’re blessed with a square-shaped face. Your earrings should create an eye-pleasing contrast with your sharper profile.


To choose the right earrings for a square face, you (and Natalie Portman & Sandra Bullock) should opt for hoop earrings as your go-to style. Their round, delicate shape will soften your chiseled features. 

Diamond-Shaped Face

As rare as their gemstone equivalent, a diamond-shaped face means your wide cheekbones rest between a slender and narrow forehead and chin. Your bold features need equally striking earrings that will complement them. 

Stud earrings in any size or shape will sit on the ear and create an eye-catching balance without distracting from your natural beauty. That means you, Elizabeth Hurley, and Tyra Banks can feel confident choosing stud earrings for your diamond face shape. Whether you choose subtle or statement studs, you’ll shine bright like the diamond you are. 


Oval-Shaped Face

If you have an oval-shaped face, your cheekbones are softer, and the width of your face is smaller than its length. This puts you in the same ranks as Charlize Theron, Beyonce, and Rihanna. It’s simple to choose the best earrings for an oval face–you’ll just want to avoid drawing out your facial features with your earrings.

Instead, we recommend statement and chandelier earrings. Whether you’re going in for a day at the office or strutting the red carpet, these earrings will give you a better facial proportion with their width and boldness. Plus, they typically don’t drop down too much, giving your face a flattering balance.


Ready to Put Your Best Face Forward with the Perfect Earrings?

No matter if you have an oval shape or a rare diamond-shaped face, there’s a perfect style of earrings meant for you. Choosing the perfect pair that flatters your face will leave you feeling bold and confident wherever you go so that you can always put your best face forward.
