Last time I bought sunnies, I had a rough time in choosing which one to buy. It’s a great dilemma for me. Let’s face it, not just to me but you too right? There have been a thousands of different designs we like but does it fit to our face? shopping for a new pair can make you feel like a kid in an eye candy store.
So here’s some tips to be guided to overcome that dilemma :)
Determine what is the shape of your face. Is it heart, oval, square or round face.
A round face has curved lines with the width and length in the same extents and no angles. To make a round face appear thinner and longer, try angular narrow eyeglass frames to lengthen the face, a clear bridge that broadens the eyes, and frames that are wider than they are deep such as a rectangular shape
An oval face is painstaking to be the ideal shape because of its well-adjusted proportions. To keep the oval’s natural balance, look for eyeglass frames that are as wide as (or wider than) the broadest part of the face, or walnut-shaped frames that are not too deep or too narrow.
An oblong face is longer than it is wide and has a long straight cheek line and occasionally a longish nose. To make an oblong face appear shorter and more balanced, try frames that have more depth than width, attractive or contrasting temples that add width to the face, or a low bridge to shorten the nose.
Diamond-shaped faces are narrow at the eye line and jawline, and have extensive cheekbones that may be high and dramatic. This is the rarest face shape. To focus the eyes and soften the cheekbones, try frames that have specifying or distinctive brow lines, or try rimless frames or oval and cat-eye shapes.
A square face has a strong jaw line and a broad forehead, plus the width and length are in the same proportions. To make a square face look lengthier and soften the angles, try tapered frame styles, frames that have more width than depth, and narrow ovals.
Hope you’ll enjoy your pairs of sunnies that suits you :)
