Oval-shaped Face

Let’s just say that oval-shaped faces like Liu Wen’s can pull off almost any type of shades. Whether you’re looking to be all adventurous with a semi-rimless number from Le Specs, or going for the classic, feminine look with Miu Miu’s butterfly frames – don’t be afraid to amp up your look with bold silhouettes.

Round-shaped Face

Like Kirsten Dunst, you’ve got a soft, feminine face shape. Complement and contrast your perfectly symmetrical face with sharp, angular frames. Choose from Givenchy’s evergreen tortoiseshell rectangle sunglasses, to Balenciaga’s matrix-esque number (as seen on Kendall Jenner), or even an edgy yet elegant piece from Fendi.

Heart-shaped Face

Unlike your round and square-faced friends, you do not need to contrast the shape of your face, but “go with the flow”. With a broad forehead, high cheekbones and sharp chin like Victoria’s Secret model, Kelly Gale; complement your heart-shaped face with sunglasses of similar properties. That way, you can draw the attention to the bottom, and elongate your look. Think classic aviators from Ray-Ban, trendy frames from Dior, or even a fun-loving heart sunnies from A-Morir.
