2. START TRYING GLASSES ON
Your selfie video will now be available for any pair of glasses you want to try. Pick a brand and filter the products by virtual try on. All the frames that appear work with the mirror feature, just click the selfie view button to see how they look!
Sound good? Give the SmartBuyGlasses try on tool a go, it works with sunglasses, eyeglasses, or even blue light blocking glasses on non-prescription lenses. For style inspiration and tips on taking the best selfie video, keep reading!
WHY DOES FACE SHAPE MATTER?
Knowing your face shape is essential to choosing the glasses that will look good on you. Instead of looking in the mirror and guessing, just use the virtual try on tool. Once you have taken the selfie video, the technology will inform you of your face shape and which frame style will suit you best.
Once you know your face shape, you can filter by frame style to make a shortlist of frames to consider. It would otherwise be nearly impossible to know where to begin! A few helpful hints are that cat-eye frames suit oval shaped faces, while square shaped faces can look great in round or oval frames. If you have a round face, classic rectangle frames could be best for you.
TIPS ON TAKING A GOOD SELFIE
If you went to the shops to try glasses on in real life, the chances are you would take a friend with you to get a second opinion. With the virtual try on tool, you can do exactly the same. Simply share your video with friends and family online. To avoid embarrassment, make sure you capture your best angle when taking the video. Here are some tips on how to do so.
1. Consider the Lighting
The closer you can get to natural light, the better. It is what any photographer would aim for, and the sun is the best tool for bringing out your eye colour.
2. Where to Look
It is tempting to look at the camera the whole way through the selfie video. However, turning your head to the side and looking back can look a little… odd. The best solution is to look the way your head is facing, while making sure your head is still in frame. You can retake the video as many times as you like until you get it right.
Smiling will lift the look of the glasses and ensure you are looking your best. And with any luck, you will have no choice but to smile when you see how good the glasses look!
Think about how it can frame your face and alter the look of your glasses. It is also worth bearing in mind that hair colour should compliment your frame colour.
