Square: Sunglasses with a higher top than at the bridge add dynamics to this face shape. Try oval and round frames to soften facial features.

Long: Since the face is longer than it is wide, look for volume not length when it comes to finding the perfect shade. Opt for more angular and squared lenses.

Heart-shaped: Choose a pair that draws attention downward to add width to the lower part of the face. Try to look for glasses that are wider at the top and narrower at the bottom such as aviators and cat-eye sunglasses.
