Eyes on Color: Finding the Perfect Frame for Your Face

At Vari, we understand how important it is to choose the perfect color eyeglass frame for your face. Your eyewear can add a stylish touch to your overall look. But with so many options available, it can be overwhelming to choose the right color that compliments your skin tone and facial features.

To help you out, we’ve put together this short guide on how to choose the perfect color frame for your face. Read on for more.

  1. Consider Your Skin Tone
    The first thing you need to consider is your skin tone.

    Your skin undertones may be warm, cool, or neutral. To figure out your skin undertone, look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. If they are blue or purple, you have cool undertones, if they are green, you have warm undertones, and if they are a mix of blue and green, you have neutral undertones.
  2. Warm vs Cool Tones
    Once you’ve figured out your skin undertone, you can choose between warm or cool tones for your eyeglass frames. Warm skin tones look best with frames in colors such as gold, beige, tortoise, honey, and brown. Cool skin tones, on the other hand, look great with frames in colors such as silver, blue, black, green, and gray.

  3. Staying with the Neutrals
    If you’re unsure about which color frames to choose, neutrals are always a safe bet.

    Vari’s HM1 in Crystal Blue is perfect for those with cool tones.

  4. These include frames in colors such as black, white, gray, and brown. Neutrals can complement any skin tone and are perfect for those who want a classic, understated look.


When choosing the perfect eyewear, in addition to color, it's important to consider your face shape, and to know what styles will work best for your features. For example, if you have a round face, choosing a rectangular or square frame can help balance your features and add definition. On the other hand, if you have an angular face, choosing a round or oval frame can soften your features and add a touch of elegance. By considering your face shape and choosing eyewear that complements your features, you can find a frame that not only looks great but also enhances your natural beauty.

Choosing frames with the perfect color and shape for your face can be daunting, but by considering your skin tone and selecting a frame that complements your features you can be sure you’re choosing the frame for you.

Don’t forget you can always use Vari’s virtual try on option to double check the frames you selected will compliment not only your style but your skin tone.
