HEART– This face shape is wider at the forehead and becomes narrow as we proceed downwards, the narrowest point is the chin and the widest is eyebrows, thus frames that are wider on the top suit as they enhance the brow area. So, the perfect frames are retro square, cat eye and sport.
Round – This face shape is widest on the top and is less narrow near the jaw line, and gives the silhouette of a round face. Sunglasses of square shape help curtail the roundness of the face; one can also experiment with a cat eye or a classic wayfarer frame.
Oval– This is the most versatile face shape when it comes to finding that perfect goggle, and sunglasses of all frames suit this face type. This face shape is more prolonged than wide. All over-sized frames, round, square, aviators suit a person with oval face.
Square– A square face has its jaw as the most strongest and prominent areas. The face is wide from all areas. To oppress the wideness, one must chose frames that are round or frames that do not have straight frames like square or rectangle. The trick is to minimize the face prominence. So, you can go with round, aviators or shield frames.
