How to Know Your Face Shape

Knowing your face shape is very important and can be a little bit tricky.

You have to know your face shape so you will also be able to know what make-up,eyebrow, hairstyle, sunglasses, etc. is suited for you.  Of course unless you're confident enough in whatever you wear or look. 

But me, being the praning, (haha!) I make sure na whatever I buy suits my face shape or even my body shape. Vain huh? Hindi naman masyado. 

So, I want to buy new sunnies and I can't decide what design to buy because I'm worried na if I buy this, I'll look like (insert any person you know. haha!). Or if I chose that design, I'll look like a bumblebee. Hirap maging babae di ba?

Enough of kapraningan, I search Mr. Google how to know my face shape(and what sunglasses suit that kind of shape).

And here's what I found:

I quickly grabbed my phone and took a picture of my face.

I know I don't look pretty in this one. Pero sa ngalan ng kaartehan, ayan na nga ang aking mukha. Haha.

Then I also try this one from

1. Top of Your Cheekbone: Rest the tape on the top of your cheekbones, just past the outer corner of your eye. Take the tape to the same point on the other side of your face in a straight line across the bridge of your nose. Note down this length.

2. Jawline: Put the tape on the jawline of your face near the base of your ear. Run the tape along your jawline up to middle of your chin. This is half your jawline length. Multiple the measurement by two to get your jawline length.

3. Forehead: Place one end of the tape on one side of the forehead at the widest point halfway between your eyebrow and the hairline. Run the tape in a straight line to the same point on the opposite side of the face. Note this length.

4. Face Length: Starting at the middle of your hairline, run the measuring tape down your face, over your nose, to the tip of your chin. Note down this length.

Now that you have done the measurements, it is time to determine the shape of your face.

Oval Face Shape: If the length of your face (measurement 4) equals one and a half times the width (measurement 1) you have an oval face.

Round Face Shape: If the length of your face is approximately equal to the width of your face, you have a round face.

Oblong Face Shape: You have an oblong face if your face is longer than it is wide. The difference between this face shape and oval face shape is that an oblong face has more length and less width. The forehead, jaw line, and cheekbone are approximately equal in width.

Heart Face Shape: If your forehead and cheekbones are wider and your jawline is narrow you have a heart-shaped face.

Square Face Shape: If the width of your face is as much as its length but your face has a more angular shape than a round face, then you have a square face.

Triangular Face Shape: This face shape has prominent jaw line and narrow cheekbones and temple.

Here's my measurement:
  1. 5" 
  2. 4" 
  3. 6" 
  4. 7.5"

I guess I'm an oval. But I'm still not so sure of it. So, for now, I'll just assume na I'm an oval. Haha!

How about you dolls? What is your face shape? :)


  1. now i know how to know the shape and measurement of my face :) thanks for sharing

  2. I think mine's round! Haha. I bought sunnies years ago and I felt sad that it didn't suit my face. I didn't know back then that I should consider the shape of my face before buying. Lols. :)

  3. Nice.. now I know.. I think I'm with the triangular one...

  4. I've always thought my face shape's oval, but if I refer to the face shape reference you posted, parang it's possible na oblong? I'll take a photo later and will measure :) Thanks for sharing this sis!
