Face shape guide for sunglasses

Face shape guide

Square face

If you have a square face, you have angular features. Your jaw is almost as wide as your cheekbones. If you want to soften your facial features, do not choose a square model but rather go for a softer, rounder or more oval model. Sunglasses that are sitting high on the bridge of the nose, as well as oval or circular lenses, fit well if your face is angular and square.

Round face

If your forehead, cheekbones and jawline all fall in the same line and are nearly the same width, you have a round face. Wider, square or rectangular frames seem to perform best on round faces. Wearing big glasses can help to balance out your rounder features by making your face look slimmer and longer. 

Oval face

You have an oval-shaped face if your face is longer than it is wide, your cheekbones are the widest part of your face, and your jaw is smooth without any sharp angles or points. You can rock any style you like, including a bolder, more oversized pair. The possibilities are infinite!

Oblong face

Oblong face shapes are often confused with oval face shapes. Simply put, this face shape is longer than it is wide. Go for large square or round frames and you will look fantastic!

Diamond face

Diamond face shapes have a small forehead and chin. Oval and cat eye-shaped glasses are the most flattering styles for diamond face girls because they highlight your amazing cheekbones. Try to avoid round, boxy shapes. 


People with heart-shaped faces have a wide forehead and a narrow chin, and frames with low-set temples help to balance this face form. Choose eyewear with thicker bottom frame lines to widen the lower half of your face.
