Just like eyebrows and hairstyles, whether a pair of sunglasses suits you or not is primarily dependent on your face shape. Clueless when it comes to the type of frames that would complement your features? We got you—watch the video below to see real Cosmo girls in the sunglasses that work best for round, square, oval, heart, diamond, or oblong faces.
Round Face Shape
- Width of face is equal to its height
- Soft features with no define
Square or rectangular frames that create definition, and pointy cat-eye details that balance the roundness
Diamond Face Shape
- Widest at temples
- Narrow forehead and a defined chin
Styles that are longer than they are wide to emphasize high cheekbones, instead of adding width.
Oval Face Shape
- Balance facial features
- Face gently tapers towards chin
Geometric frames with defined corners to play up your symmetrical face. But you can pull off any style!
Heart Face Shape
- Wide temples and cheeks
- Narrow and pointy chin
Aviator sunglasses. The teardrop shape complements your pronounced cheekbones and defined chin.
Square Face Shape
- Broad forehead and chin
- Strong, straight jawline
Wide circular frames that offset your prominent jaw and balance the width of your face.
Oblong Face Shape
- Slim and elongated features
- Narrow and rounded chin
Oversized sunglasses with square-ish frames to fill out your face and balance the length.
Make sure you choose the right sunglasses that flatter your face shape and you’re good to go!
