Sunglasses are a top accessory and when it comes to shopping for them, you want to pick frames that enhance your best facial features -- hence why knowing your face shape is so useful. Grab some lip liner and a mirror, because we have a quick and easy way to help you determine your face shape + choose the best sunglasses for you.
First, pull your hair back and look straight into the mirror so you can see your entire face. Next, use the lip liner to put dots on the mirror around your hairline, jawline, temples and chin. Now connect the dots and see what shape you just created.
Keep in mind that your face shape is as individual as you are and no two people are exactly alike. Faces are often a combination of shapes and can fall in between or change a bit as you age or even as you lose or gain weight.
Choosing the right frames for your face is all about balance - so after determining your face shape, choose sunglass styles that balance your face. For example:
If your face shape is rounder, go for the square sunglasses.
If it's more of a square shape, go for the round sunglasses or at least round at the bottom of the frame.
If you have a heart face shape, then choose the styles that are rounded towards the bottom and almost the same width at both the top and the bottom of the frame.
For all our oval face shapes, you're in luck, because pretty much any frame style will suit you.
