More on determining your Faces Shape

One distinction you can make between overall face shapes is angled vs. contoured.   

Angled faces shapes: 
diamond (pointed chin, prominent cheekbones, medium or narrow forehead, not rounded like heart)

verticle or inverted triangle (pointed chin, much wider forehead, not rounded like heart)

wide bottom triangle (or hexagon) (jawline much more angular than true pear)
rectangle (much more angular than oblong, squared off jaw)

square (noticeable square jaw, close to same width and height)

Contoured face shapes: 

While Reese is said to be the postergirl for heart shaped face, Jennifer Love Hewett has the widow's peak that is even more accurate
heart (prominent rounded chin, wide forehead, with widow's peak)

oblong (rounded jaw and forehead, longer face)
pear (wider jaw than forehead, rounded edges)
oval (actually sort of egg shaped, chin slightly narrower than forehead, rounded)

round (round jaw and hairline)

Eye Types & Iridology

Eyes & Iridology

"SPRING EYES Sanguine Air: The Sanguine iris type is called hematogenic by iridologists. The iris color is usually brown or hazel, and its fibers tightly or densely woven; as the Sanguine is considered to be the most balanced and equable of temperaments in Greek Medicine, so the densely woven hematogenic type is considered to be the most desirable by iridologists. However, this type is vulnerable to toxic and metabolic disorders of the blood. Red flecks or discolorations on the iris indicate congested or hot, toxic blood. The densely woven hematogenic iris is also most commonly affected by concentric circular waves or striations that resemble the growth marks on a tree; such striations are associated with deeply held nervous tension and spasmodic conditions by iridologists, as a sort of Nervous / Melancholic counterpoint or undercurrent to the Sanguine."
a Sanguine likes it "the fun way"

blue eyed sanguines
Rudolf Steiner refers to sanguines as having blue eyes
"The Four Temperaments" page 83
  • hemtogenic
  • yellow skintone
  • usually brown or hazel (though somewhere sanguine is said to be blue)?
  • dense fibers
  • starburst design with small flower shape near pupil
  • may have red flecks or dots
  • concentric circles are stress marks, which would indicate T1/4
  • pure brown eyes are associated with Chinese & Western fire and earth elements
  • brown, yellow or golden flecks or dots (in any season) are jewel types, observant visual learners, great verbal skills, collect beliefs and things, dislike being controlled or losing freedom..

"SUMMER EYES Phlegmatic Water: The lymphatic iris type is characterized by light, airy, loosely woven iris fibers, reflecting the generally loose, lax tone of the muscles, organs and tissues in those of a Phlegmatic temperament. The color of the lymphatic iris is usually blue or gray. This iris type is the most prone to white discolorations on its fibers, which show an accumulation or congestion of excess phlegm or stagnant lymph. A lymphatic rosary is when a necklace or garland of interconnected white, cloudy spots encircles the outer edge of the iris; it's associated with lymphatic congestion and obstruction. A scurf rim, or dark outer margin of the iris, also commonly seen in the lymphatic iris, indicates a tendency towards toxic congestion of the skin and poor elimination of toxins through perspiration, which throws an extra toxic load on the lungs, liver and kidneys."

a Phlegmatic likes it "thoughtful way"

brown eyed summers
Suzanne Caygill lists various brown eyed summers: Twilight and Dusky Summers
Color Alliance has various brown eyed summers as well

  • lymphatic
  • pink skintone
  • light, loose, wavy, airy fibers
  • often white fibers
  • crackled glass design with no other pattern
  • usually blue or gray
  • blue associated with Water element in Chinese and Western
  • when petals appear, also check skintone for winter.
  • petals/crypts indicate that the person is a tender feeling type, they may also be very auditory, creative, enthusiastic, organized, greatly fearing being alone
A brown eyed summer is rather rare, but will have the absence of other patterns.

"AUTUMN EYES Choleric Fire: The mixed type of iris, midway between the hematogenic and the lymphatic, is most closely associated with the Choleric temperament. The texture is also mixed, with alternating dense and loose patches of fibers.  According to iridologists, there are only two basic kinds of iris colors - the brown - hazel hematogenic and the blue - gray lymphatic. Those of a Choleric temperament often have green eyes, but upon closer examination, this is shown to be nothing more than blue or gray mixed with yellow discolorations. In any type of iris, yellowish discolorations indicate inflammatory conditions or bilious deposits."

 a Choleric likes it "my way"
  • mixed type
    orange skintone
  • dense and light
    the most textured
  • aztec sun design
  • green eyes which are yellow (bilious deposits) above blue color below are considered Choleric
  • Discolorations or psora (drug spots) on top of a blue background (fibre structure is visible through colour). Chinese wood, earth constitutions and the Western air
  • Shaker pattern occurs when there is both freckles/dots and petals, being full of energy, goal-oriented, like to get things done, great motivators

"WINTER EYES Melancholic Earth: In my opinion, the Melancholic temperament also usually corresponds to the mixed iris type. Dark black or brown spots or discolorations indicate deposits of black bile or charred, oxidized forms of black or yellow bile. Nervous stress rings, mentioned earlier under the Sanguine iris type, are another Melancholic sign. The key premise of iridology, and also its most controversial assertion, is that the iris can be mapped out into various reflex zones, corresponding to different organs, tissues and parts of the body. And so, a nebulous white cloud, or white patch, in the liver zone would indicate a Phlegmatic congestion of the liver; a yellowish discoloration in that same spot would indicate an inflammatory or bilious condition of the liver, and so on."

a Melancholy likes it "the right way"

  • mixed type
  • gray skintone
  • dark black or brown spots (bile)
  • nervous stress rings
  • can be dark brown or dark blue
  • pure brown eyes are associated with Chinese & Western fire and earth elements
  • wheel spoke design
  • also called “stream” (kinesthetic, communicates with gestures, very sensitive, compassionate, attractive)

Determining Your Face Shape

I find that this is one of the most subjective aspects for yourself or others.  You can see this immediately if you start googling face shape, and you'll find celebrities determined to be more than one shape.  (Elsewhere I talk about facial shape and type.)

I didn't have time to give the links, but here are some examples, some which everyone agrees on and some where there is disagreement:
said to be the most common face shape
one thing I learned from Paulos is that the oval can have a bit of a pointy chin, it doesn't have to be flat
Very commonly seen as oval: Megan Fox and Eva Mendes

Seen often as oval: Julia Roberts and Natalie Portman,
but you also see Natalie as heart and square

Natalie Imbruglia, Keira Knightly also said to have a round and square face.
Jessica Alba
Britney Spears and Charlize Theron are ovals.

Cameron and Kirsten are always associated with the round face.
(except once I saw Cameron as heart)

Drew and
Ginnifer and Maggie usually shown as round faced.
Here Keira is said to have a round face.
Kelly Clarkson and Kelly Osbourne are more often seen as pear
Nobody can agree on Cristina Ricci, described as round, but also heart, pear and square.


Reese is the poster girl for heart shaped face, with it's specific chin.

Jennifer Love Hewitt is another classic heart shape

Scarlett is also called the similar shape, Diamond.

here's Cameron considered heart (instead of round)
Jennifer Garner and Natalie Portman have been called heart shaped,
though Natalie is more often called oval.
Jennifer Aniston considered heart shape face.
Venus Williams considered "acorn" shape, similar shape.
Katie is said to have a heart (or triangular) shaped face (but also square).
Crisina Ricci is described as a square face (but elsewhere heart, pear and round).

Triangle (wide top)
Elizabeth Hurley said to have triangle face shape, but also described as heart shape and diamond shape.  Triangle is similar to heart shape, and once I've seen Reese given that label.


Jennifer Aniston has been said to have a diamond face shape, as does Posh Spice. I also seen Jennifer described to have a heart shape face.

Selma Blair and Olivia Munn have diamond shaped faces.

Kate Bosworth is said to have a diamond face shape as is Rhianna, but she's also described as square.
Scarlett is said to also be heart shaped in addition to the label here of diamond.  Madonna is said to have the quintessential diamond shape face.
Elizabeth Hurley said to have a diamond shape face here.

Jacki O. had the quintessential square face.

Both of these pics of Keira were used to describe her as having a square face, while she does have a strong jaw, there's more of a slope to it than some square faces.
Nicole Ritchie is said to have a square face shape, but I've also seen round, heart, pear for her.  Her bff Paris definitely has a square face.
Jenna Elfman is said to have a square face, but I've also seen round and pear.

Lucy Liu and ? are described as having square shaped faces.
People usually refer to Minnie Driver as having a pear shaped face and Natalie as having an oval one, though I found them described to have square shape faces also.
Renee Zellwegger is described as having a square shape face as is Rhianna (though also seen as diamond).
Sandra Bullock and Jessica Simpson have square shape faces.

Emily Deschannel and Jennifer Garner have square faces (though Jennifer is also described as having a hear shape face).

Katie Holmes is said to have a square face, but also heart shaped.

Triangle (wide bottom) or Pear

Most say Drew has a square shape, but I've also seen her described as having a pear shaped face.
Kelly Clarkson and Kelly Osbourne have pear shaped faces (though also described elsewhere as round).
Minnie Driver is most often described as having a pear shaped face.

Cristina described as pear (but also round, heart and square)
Renee Zellweger described as pear (and square)

Oblong or Long


Long Square (rectangle)

Angelina Jolie is often called a square face, though it seems long square.

Kirsten Wiig and Olivia Wilde are also long squares.

If you google this topic, you get a lot of instructions on measuring your face.  This has only limited merit.  It is a bit hard to measure something that is not linear.

This is fun at pointing out the features of many face shapes:

Multiple Angles
My suggestion is that you really need to look at multiple pictures of yourself from various angles. I would also include profile shot because your jaw determines a lot as well.  It also helps to look at your face in group shots, to compare with other people's faces.  I really discovered this when doing a past post on Stella McCartney.
