Models that expand downwards and carnation earrings are also a great solution. Long hanging earrings can be useful, but only if the lower part of the ornament is much wider than the upper one. If we wear oblong, narrow (or tapering down) earrings, we will only result in unnecessary optical elongation of the face, which can make its shape more contrasting and visible.

How to choose earrings. Square face

Among the most characteristic features of a square face, we can highlight, above all, a wide jaw line and a wide forehead, which makes the width of the face the same regardless of which part we address.

All ovals, classic circles and streamlined earrings with the addition of pearls will add lightness and soften your face beautifully.

To make the face look more streamlined, we can use rounded earrings. Avoid earrings that are more angular or excessively long, which will definitely not make your face look better.
