Angular - square, rectangle, triangle, diamond.
Curved - round, heart, pear, oval
Combination - some of each of the above
When assessing someone's face shape I also take into consideration their features - eyes, nose, mouth, chin, cheeks and forehead. For example, a sharp, pointed nose is angular; a more rounded nose is curved. Almond shaped eyes are more angular; round eyes are curved. Thin, straight lips are angular; full soft lips are curved. A pointed chin is angular; a soft, rounded one is curved etc.
