heart shaped

If your face is heart shaped, you’re in good company. Celebrities such as Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington, and Taylor Swift, have this romantic facial structure. A heart shaped face is defined by a wider forehead and narrower chin, much like the outline of a heart. Another word for this face shape is “V-shaped.”

The best sunglass styles for your face shape are: Aviator and Cat Eye.

Aviator sunglasses are a classic style that work with most face shapes, but particularly for the heart shaped. The thin frames and tinted glass balance your facial structure well, while the prominent shades draw attention toward the chin and elongate your face. 

Cat Eye sunglasses serve a similar purpose, but with a vintage twist. The uplifted cat eye corners balance a thinner jaw. As an added benefit, the sunglass frame is wider than the forehead, causing the forehead to appear smaller.




Some of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood are square shaped. Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, Lucy Liu, Sandra Bullock, and Katie Holmes are angular-faced beauties to name a few. A square shaped face is defined by the forehead, cheekbones, and jaw being the same width. Compared to a round shaped face, a person with a square shaped face has a much more angular jaw. 

When looking for the best sunglass shape to compliment your face, you’ll want to seek out softer, rounder frames. This is why the best sunglass style for a square face is: Round.

Nothing makes the world go around for a square shaped face than round sunglasses. The lack of angles and soft round shape melt compliment the sharp angles of a square face. The contrast between round frames and angular facial structure is ideal! 




Diamonds are a girl’s best friend and for some women, it’s also their face shape. If you have a diamond shaped face, then you share more in common with Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, and Emma Roberts than you might have once thought. Diamond faces have wide cheekbones with narrow foreheads and narrow chins. 

The best sunglass style for your face shape is: Cat Eye.

A rare sunglass style for a rare face shape, the Cat Eye makes a statement while balancing your facial features. The wide and uplifted frames of the Cat Eye draw attention to strong cheekbones, while narrowing the face at its widest point.  




People with oval shaped faces have it easy! Oval faces work well with most sunglass styles and frames. And in fact, many consider oval faces to be the ideal face shape for modern beauty standards. Beautiful women such as Adele, Beyoncé, Meghan Markle, and Alicia Keyes are all famous oval shaped icons. To determine if you have an oval face shape, notice if your face softly tapers toward your chin. 

Because most sunglasses look great on oval shaped faces, you have a variety of styles to choose from. The most recommended styles for an oval face, however, are: Butterfly and Square.

Butterfly sunglasses are stunning on people with oval faces because the subtle angles of a Butterfly frame compliment your subtle and smooth features. Plus who doesn’t want to wear sunglasses named after nature’s most graceful creature?  

On the other hand, rectangular frames look particularly nice on people with oval faces because the sharp, angular sunglass frames compliment the soft, even features of an ovular face. 




Last, but certainly not least – the round face! Drew Barrymore, Mila Kunis, Mindy Kaling, and Gigi Hadid are just a few starlets with stunningly, round features. Round faces are characterized with symmetrical features and the same width and length measurements. Additionally, round faces typically have a rounded jawline and chin. 


In order to compliment round features and create greater dimension, Aviator sunglasses are the best choice for round faces. The thin frames and large lenses balance the face and provide definition.
