Check Out How to Pick The Perfect Sunglasses For Your Face Type - Photos

Sunglasses are more than just a must-have Fashion accessory as they shield our eyes from dangerous UV rays, relieve fatigue and improve our overall appearance. Hence, it's important important to select the type that best meets our needs.

This article will give you few pointers on how to choose sunglasses that complement your face shape, as well as how to discern a good lens from a bad one.

How to determine your face type.

A washable marker, lipstick, a bar of soap or a pencil are all good options. In front of a mirror, stand at arm's length. Trace the outline of your face on the mirror's surface, starting at your chin and finishing at your hairline, trying not to let your hand stray. Take a step back and examine the shape that has resulted.

Choose dark frames for your spectacles if you want to visually lengthen your face. They elongate the face and make its contours more oval-shaped. Choose a frame with a wider breadth than height to match your facial dimensions.

Suitable for those with round faces:

Glasses with a point, a rectangle, or a square shape.

Glasses with "cat's eyes."

Glasses with a "butterfly" design.

Spectacles with a thin bridge.



Not recommended for people with round faces:

Glasses with a round shape.

Frames that are narrow.

Sharply defined edges of the glasses.

Glasses with a geometrical shape.

Colored-lens spectacles.

Eyeglasses that hide the brows.

The key goal here is to maintain the harmonizing proportions of your face. As a result, you should avoid wearing glasses that appear to be overly big.

The frame should be at least as wide as your face, if not a touch wider. Make sure the upper section of the frame is aligned with your brows.

Suitable for those with oval faces:

Rectangular, oval, and round glasses with smooth-lined frames.

Glasses with a "butterfly" design.


Glasses with "cat's eyes."

Not recommended for people with oval faces:

Sharply defined edges of the glasses.

Glasses that look to be too large.

Glasses that appear to be excessively big.

Frames that are narrow.

Frames with sharp angles, like as rectangular or square frames, might "overload" the outlines of your face. Rounded frames, on the other hand, might aid to visually balance and soften overall facial proportions.

Appropriate for square faces:

Glasses that are large.

Glasses with a frame that is the same width as your face.

Spectacles with a colorful frame.

Frames that are oval, circular, or teardrop-shaped.

Glasses with no frames.

Not recommended for people with square faces:

Frames that are square and have sharp corners.

Frames that are small, thin, and petite.

Glasses with a frame that is larger than your face.

Aim for a wider appearance of your face. Opt for spectacles that are big and bulky. Also, make sure they have clear lenses and slim frames that complement your skin tone.

Faces with a rectangular shape are best:

Glasses with a large frame.

"Aviators" is a term used to describe people who fly (with large frames).

Glasses with a round frame.

Faces with a rectangular shape are not recommended:

Frames that are narrow.

Glasses that are little.

Spectacles with a vibrant, multicolored frame.

The major goal should be to visually broaden the upper half of your face while concealing the lower portion. Choose sunglasses with a broad upper section and a thick frame. Square or sharp contours should be avoided in the lower section.

Appropriate for triangular faces:

Glasses with a round shape and no colorful ornamentation.


Glasses with clear lenses that resemble cat's eyes.

Glasses with no frames.

Faces with triangle shapes are not recommended:

Dark-tinted lenses with "cat's eyes" design.
