In a word, glasses shopping is one of my most stressful times.  A small face and head, small deep set eyes and a super high powered complicated prescription which requires a fair amount of surface area and a very good lab to make.  So I feel limited to the in house optician at my ophtho because the right script is most important.  Also needing child sized glasses but wanting adult quality, well it's a nightmare.  My brilliant optician found these frames from coach.  Temples up with lift, pretty side pieces, right size, accommodate the prescription check, frame color, a rich tortoise with gold and red undertones in the light, that flatters my coloring and features, follow the brow line (most important Angie tip), sophisticated and serious - it's a miracle (and yes, I bought a second frame as back up!!)  Lastly, for people with small faces and small deep set eyes, if you center your eyes in the frame they will be too small. Think balance, proportion and harmony and use the frames to balance you face and features is my best input for this proportion problem. Like body type, there are probably specific recommendations for different features but you'll know the magic pair when you find it!! Show off your favorite frames!!
