Nothing glams, hide, or snob your face faster this spring than the appropriate sunglasses. Want to disguise up-all-night puffy eyes, don’t want to be bothered, or just want to look fly? Slapping on the correct shades can establish these antidotes and beyond in one quick step! Amber Rose, who has an oval face, rarely steps out without a pair of sunglasses that fits her mood of the moment – from funky, edgy, flirty, glamorous to snobby.
The one difficulty you may find when searching for the multi-correctors aside from color, design, and designer (the finds are endless!!) is the perfect sun wear for the shape of your face. Scoping eclectic rims worn by Blue Ivy’s mom, Beyonce Knowles, Battleship’s Rihanna and again Amber is cool, but on the hunt for frames that look hot on your fave celebs isn’t necessarily advantageous for your eye and facial shape interest. So, what’s the best four-eye look for the shape of your face?
Check out these helpful face shape tidbits before your next sunglasses purchase:
Square face: Oval and round frames works best with angular or square faces which have a strong jaw line, broad forehead, and square chin, but proportional length and width.
Oval face: Most frame shapes work with oval faces which are mostly balanced proportions and chin is slightly narrower than forehead with high cheekbones.
Oblong face: Broad or tall frames that helps to better proportionate the face with a narrow shape that’s longer than it is wide. Angular features with high cheekbones, a longer nose, and tall forehead.
Round face: Angular and geometric frames that sharpen facial features that have full cheeks, rounded chin with few angles. Width and length are in same proportions.
Heart face: Bottom-heavy frames that add width to lower face works with the broad forehead and wide cheek bones that narrows to a small chin.
Triangle face: Semi-rimless frames that accentuate the upper face accommodating a narrow forehead and eye line that widens at cheeks and the chin.
Diamond face: Upswept styles like cat eye that emphasize cheek bones for the narrowing at the eye line and the jaw line with a small forehead and chin boasting angular features with dramatic cheekbones.
