How to contour your face in 5 easy steps | Visage, Des lunettes de ...

Long, oval, heart, or diamond – each of our faces has a unique shape. What better way to complement that natural shape than with the perfect set of earrings? 

If you’ve ever wondered how to use earrings to enhance the natural features of your face shape then look no further – our experts at EarFleek have put together a guide to help you pick the perfect earring style for you!

Dangle Earrings for Round Faces

Round Face

If you have a round chin line and your face is widest at your cheekbones, then you have a round face! 

Long, dangle earrings help to visually elongate your face. This is a great way to gracefully complement your natural look! Perfect styles for your face could include tassel earrings or dangling drop earrings.

Stud Earrings for Oval Faces

An oval face is a bit longer than a round face. If you have a slightly rounded jawline and a forehead that is narrower than your cheekbones, then you have an oval face. 

The best way to enhance an oval face is by broadening the facial structure. Stud earrings are a wonderful way to do this! Experiment with teardrop, pearl, or oval studs. A short dangling earring will also do the trick – but avoid an earring that is too long, as it will lengthen your face instead of complementing its natural shape.

Wide Earrings for Long Faces


A narrow and lengthy face will land you in the “long face shape” category! The perfect earrings to compliment a long face are ones that offer an element of width, especially around your cheekbones. 

Achieve this look with stud earrings or with wide, dangling earrings of short or medium length. While long, slim earrings will only further emphasize the length of your face, dangling, rounded ones will balance out your face’s natural structure and highlight your cheekbones. 

Hoop Earrings for Square Faces


Those with a square face have a flatter chin line. The forehead, cheekbones, and jawline will be about the same length. You can complement this bold shape with an earring that is medium to long in length and that has a round shape. 

Hoop earrings are the ideal choice, as they come in a variety of lengths and their round shape will have the perfect complementary effect to your naturally square face! 

Studs or Dangle Earrings for Diamond Faces

Diamond Face

If your cheekbones are the widest point on your face, then you have a diamond-shaped face!

Highlight those beautiful cheekbones with a pair of stud earrings. Even dangling earrings will work well with a diamond-shaped face as long as they stop just above the chin. These shapes help to bring out the angles of your face without being overbearing.

Teardrop or Chandelier Earrings for Heart Faces

Heart Face

If your forehead is wider than your cheekbones and you have a pointed chin, then you have a heart-shaped face! 

The perfect way to complement this face shape is to select earrings that are wider at the bottom than they are at the top. If you think of your face as an inverted triangle, then you can imagine how dangling earrings with triangular shapes work so well to balance out a heart-shaped face! 

Teardrop or chandelier earrings would be the perfect fit for you. Dangling earrings that are too slim or narrow won’t achieve quite the same complementary effect.
