If you have a round face:
This face shape is as wide as it is long, with the widest part occurring at the ears, like Selena Gomez, Kelly Clarkson, and Mila Kunis. “If you have a rounder face, a more rectangular, angular shape will add sharpness, highlight your cheekbones, and overall make your face look more contoured,” says Jessica Coppel, vice president of brand management at Tura.com. Coppel highly recommends choosing a frame in a brick-and-mortar store with the help of a knowledgeable optician. “It’s important to try on several styles to find the perfect fit,” Coppel adds. (The same goes true even if you prefer to order glasses online.) “When a frame fits well, and you look in the mirror, you will be more encouraged to wear glasses all day, optimizing your eyesight. A win for beauty and a win for eye health.” Prefer to order glasses online? The frames pictured are Chamberlain by Warby Parker.
If you have a heart-shaped face:
Often referred to as the ideal shape for a woman, a heart-shaped face includes a more narrow chin that widens along the cheekbone to a fuller forehead. Celebs who rock this face shape include Michelle Pfeiffer, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Claudia Schiffer, and Naomi Campbell. The downside of this feminine face shape is that it’s easy for many sunglasses and eyeglasses to overwhelm individual features. That’s why experts recommend keeping it classic, simple, and understated. “Opt for a frame with a bit of roundness and soft curve,” suggests Wes Stoody, founder of the hipster glasses company Article One. “Upswept cat eyes are great for women with a heart-shaped face,” he suggests.
