It’s hard to know exactly sunglasses are suitable for your face shape and the hottest accessory for the spring/summer season is always the sunglasses so I hope this post will help you decide. There are 6 basic face shapes: oval, oblong, round, square, and heart, and it may be very difficult to place yourself into one specific category and that’s completely normal. So lets just delve right into it.
Note: the photos used in this post are not mind and I did not create them.
You typically have very balanced proportions and your chin tends to be narrower than your forehead and you may have high cheekbones.
If you have an oval face, you’re very lucky. You’ve got the most versatile face shape. You can where any type of sunglasses but softer angular shapes will play up an oval face.
You typically have a longer face with narrower cheekbones and chin. You may have a larger nose and a taller forehead.
If you have an oblong face, you want to counteract the fact that your face is longer than it is wide by avoiding narrow frames and frames with embellished tops. Rather, go for the oversized or wrap ones.
You typically have fuller cheekbones with a narrow forehead and jawline. Width and length are basically the same.
If you have a round face, you want to make your cheekbones seem more in line with the rest of your face. Avoid rounded frames as this will accentuate the roundness of your face. Try wide and rectangular frames.
You typically have a broad forehead and a square jawline. Your face is generally more angular.
If you have a square face, you are wanting to counteract the angularity by adding curves. Thus, avoid shades with geometric shapes and a rectangular frame. Rather, go for round, oval or cat-eye frames.
You typically have a wider forehead and cheekbones but a narrower chin. Your face kinda looks like a heart. 🙂
If you have a heart-shaped face, you are wanting to counteract the wider top part. Avoid heavily embellished frames but opt for cat-eyes or round frames instead.
The Miracle Pair
Butterfly flames like the ones above are flattering on all face shapes. You can’t go wrong with them.
That brings me to the end of my post. Tell me what your face shape is and what are you favorite shades! I want to know. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed it. See you tomorrow.
