Earrings help to put emphasis on both your skin tone and your face shape. It's not a difficult task to figure out what colors best matches your skin tone, (especially if you use makeup), because you are familiar with what colors work best for you. But some people may not pay too much attention to the shape of the face and how earrings can help emphasize your face natural structure. Try these tips on which pair of earrings will best match your face:

  • Round: Your face is just about as long as it is wide. Your cheeks have a rounder shape. Your chin is not prominent and blends right in with your jaw. 

Celebrity examples: Jordin Sparks, Queen Latifah

  • Oval: The oval face is an elongated version of the round face shape. Your forehead is not too wide and the line from your forehead blends with your high cheekbones. Your chin is not typically prominent and blends right in with your jaw.

Celebrity Example: Beyonce, Megan Good

  • Square: The width of your forehead, cheeks, and jawline will be similar. When you look at the sides of your face they are almost a perfectly straight line. You have a definite jaw line that is squared.

Celebrity examples: Yara Shahidi, Zendaya, Jennifer Hudson

  • Diamond: Your forehead and chin are narrower than your cheekbones. You definitely have a good jaw line, and typically a chin that comes to a point.

  • Heart: Your forehead is wider than your cheeks and your face narrows toward your chin.

Celebrity examples: Naomi Campbell, Kerry Washington

  • Oblong: Your face’s most defining characteristic is its length, with not as much emphasis on the width of your forehead or cheeks. Jaw line is typically round not squared, unless you have an elongated heart face, therefore giving you a more defined chin.

Celebrity Examples: Kelly Rowland, Iman
