The Emma Stone (AKA Round) Face Shape

Rounder faces like Emma's tend to be widest across the cheekbones and narrower along the forehead and jawline. Rectangular and angular frames are always a safe bet, and the wide cheekbones can pull off oversized frames, too.

The Kerry Washington (AKA Heart) Face Shape
