    Rectangular frames can be suitable for long face. Because your face is long, so the frame should be as much as possible to cover your face. You should also choose thick frame to reduce the impression of a long face. If you are a male, you can choose a wider frame, such as big frame which approximate square. If you are a female, you can choose a frame with edges.
