Choosing Sunglasses Based On Your Face Shape
Round-Shaped Face: (Cameron Diaz or Oprah Winfrey)
A round face is as wide as it is long with rounded edges. Look for wider frames with angular or rectangular styles that do not extend past your cheekbones. Look for frames equal to or slightly wider than the broadest part of the face. Sunglasses with brow bars also pull the eye upward, making the face appear longer. Frames should make the face appear longer and thinner.
Oval-Shaped Face: (Jessica Alba or Heather Locklear)
This face shape is similar to an hourglass shape. Any frame looks good on this shaped face, but square shaped frames with rounded edges and higher temples will add more angles.
Oblong-Shaped Face: (Sarah Jessica Parker or Hilary Swank)
This long and narrow face can appear fuller with glasses that do not extend beyond the widest part of your face. Stick with round or square styles.
Square-Shaped Face: (Gwyneth Paltrow or Demi Moore)
The square face shape is as wide as it is long and has strong angles, such as the jawline, broad forehead, and wide cheekbones. You will want to choose glasses with rounded edges to offset your strong jawline. Reduce the angles with curvy styles that will give the face some definition such as cat-eye, round, or oval frames.
Triangular-Shaped Face: (Kathy Ireland or Victoria Beckham)
This face consist of a narrow jaw and wide forehead. You can soften the lower portion of the face by accenting your eye area with cat-eye style glasses that angle outward at the top corner and are
wide enough to balance the jaw line.You can also try metal frames with rimless bottoms.
Heart-Shaped Face: (Katie Holmes or Jennifer Lopez)
This face is wide in the eye and cheekbone area with a narrow or pointy chin. Many heart-shaped faces also have a high forehead. Try aviator glasses, as they can give width to the lower portion of your face.
Diamond-Shaped Face: (Nicole Kidman or Beyonce Knowles)
This face shape has high or wide cheekbones with a narrow forehead and chin. Oval sunglasses will soften the contour of your face, although curved square frames will work as well. Make sure the styles are no wider than the top of the cheekbones.
