When you put on a pair of sunglasses, you don’t just want to block out the glare of the sun. You want to know that the sunglasses suit your face and flatter you, so you can look good even on the hottest days. Here’s a guide to how to find sunglasses to suit your face, so when you pop on your pair, you know you look amazing and can feel confident.
KNOW YOUR FACE SHAPE
Everyone’s face is unique, but in general, most peoples’ faces fit into these four main categories:
Oval - oval faces are well-proportioned, longer than it is wide, with a jaw that’s slightly narrower than the cheekbones.
Round - round faces tend to be wide at the top and underneath the cheekbones and this often makes features look softer.
Heart-shaped - a heart shaped face will have a wide forehead and a narrow chin.
Square - square faces have strong features, with a wide hairline and wide jaw.
We recommend tying your hair back and looking in the mirror to work out the closest face shape to your own, as this will make it much easier to find the right sunglasses. For some people, it’s hard to tell, they may be in-between shapes and might need to try different styles.
