Features of a diamond face shape

People with diamond-shaped faces are likely to have:

  • Higher cheeks and/or prominent cheekbones
  • A chin that tapers to a point
  • Forehead is a similar width to your cheeks

You may have a combination of a couple of different face shapes, or be one more strongly than the other. Read our other guides to face shapes, for more ideas for glasses to suit you individually.
