How do you know what earrings to shop for? Being anywhere near something trendy, sparkly, colorful and beautiful will have most women heading to the cash register without any hesitation. Nothing wrong with that!

Wanting to keep up with the latest trends and buy glamorous jewellery seems such fun, but not knowing what will compliment your features and buying items which  may actually hide or not enhance your facial features is not the best route to take.

Learning your face shape is a great skill to have for so many reasons. Whether it be accessorizing with necklaces, earrings, hats, scarves or even putting on makeup, having a strong knowledge of your facial features is going to help you confidently choose what will make you look and feel your best.

Earrings may seem to be only a small aspect of accessorizing and putting together an outfit. However, certain shapes and sizes of earrings can really help accentuate your features for whatever face shape you have.

It is pretty safe to say that the rule of thumb when accessorizing for face shapes is that, mirroring your features in the jewellery you’re wearing can be the best way to compliment your features. Long earrings go with long or pointed face shape, round compliments round, square with square, but  it’s always fun to mix things up a little. You don’t want to be stuck with the same accessories every time you go out. There are plenty of sizes and shapes of earrings that will look fabulous with your features without having to mirror them, so go out experiment have fun and enjoy sometimes breaking the rules!  So now let’s learn what earrings will best complement your face shape, because as small as earrings are, the effect on your outfit can be quite stunning, the saying that  “a little goes a long way” never had dinner with Donatella.
