Also, you must choose the style you want to adopt. To create a romantic style, for instance, wear studs or up-to-the-ear earrings placed closer to your eyes. To create a sensual look, wear long drop earrings that draw attention to your neck and lips.


Triangular and diamond face shape

On a square or rectangular face, the cheek line or the base of the face are where the width is greatest. In contrast to the other face types we discussed previously, you want to shift the weight in this case away from the largest part of your face and more in the direction of your eyes and ears.
