They have a more slender jawline.
Glasses recommended- Rectangular frames definitely provide an edge to the face shape as it gives the perfect balance to the curvy features.
Round face shape
Round face shapes are one of the least favourite, but they do have the best curvy features of every shape. Selena Gomez is all set to be your favourite face shape buddy so make sure to give a look and find the similarity between the two. The round face shape is quite symmetrical, the face is of the same width and length and the jawline and chin are quite curved. Due to the absence of angels, the face shape looks quite angular.
