Now, first thing first. It is very important to determine your exact face shape. How do you do it? Simple, grab a washable marker or a lipstick, stand an arm length away from your mirror, now carefully draw the outline of your face on the mirror starting from the chin and ending at your hairline. The resulting shape is your face shape.
There are 6 types of face shape:
- Round shape face
- Oval shape face
- Rectangular shape face
- Square face shape
- Triangular shape face
- Heart shape face
Round Shaped Face
They have round chin and no sharp angles. The hairline is round and smooth.
The sunglasses that looks best on round faces are pointed, regular and square glasses such as cat shaped and butterfly shaped glasses with narrow bridges. Such sunglasses with wide frames tend to lengthen your face and contour it close to oval shape thus making your face appear slim. Check out our Bella Cat Eye, they are the perfect fit for anyone with a round face.
Oval Shaped Face
They have wider cheekbones and narrow forehead and jawline.
Rectangular, oval and round shaped glasses are most appropriate for such faces. Aviators, cat eye and butterfly sunglasses are what that doesn’t mess with the nice proportion of the oval shaped faces. Frames should be as wide as or slightly wider than your face. This enhances the beautiful cut of the face. Our Round Up Sunnies would be an amazing pick for anyone with an oval shaped face.
Rectangular Shaped Face
These faces have equally proportioned forehead, jaws and cheekbones in width. Chin is broad and hairline is almost straight.
Such faces are ideal for massive looking glasses. Round and large framed glasses matches the best with such faces. Aviators with large frames looks absolutely great on such faces. Transparent lenses with narrow frames are suitable. Have a look at our Love Sunglasses, they may fit this face shape the best.
Square Shaped Face
These faces have more angular lines, with equally wide cheekbones, forehead and jawline.
It is advised not to overload a square shaped face with sharp angled frames but to balance the whole face proportion with round shaped frames. Large glasses, frameless glasses, cat eye glasses, colored frames, oval, and round or tear shaped frames works the best for such face shapes. Pick up our Route Sunglasses if you have a square shaped face.
Heart Shaped Face
These faces have the greater length than the width. Forehead is the widest and chin is the narrowest part of the face. The face narrows from forehead to chin.
People with such face shapes should make the lower part of their face appear larger. Bulky or huge appearing sunglasses makes the upper part of the face looks even bigger. So to balance it out, glasses with the equal width as your face are ideal. Such as Aviators, round shaped frames, wayfarers with bright or neutral colored frames. Our Marble Aviators are worth falling in love with, plus they’ll be perfect for heart face shaped ladies.
Triangular Shaped Face
Face is greater length wise than the width. Narrow forehead and cheekbones with a slightly wider chin. The face narrows down towards the temples.
These faces aim to make the upper part of their face appear wider than the lower part. Glasses with square shaped or sharp outlines at the lower part should be avoided. Round glasses with wide embellishment, aviators, frameless glasses and cat eye glasses with see-through lenses are also a good choice with just shaped faces. Check our J Macs, this pair is made for anyone with a triangular shaped face.
It is very important to find the right fit when you are choosing the glasses. The right fit, prevents the glasses to slip of from your nose even if a drop or two of sweat breaks out.
