Finding the right pair of sunglasses is never easy. This is especially the case with celebrity sunglasses since aspiring to the styles of the stars can be an overwhelming experience. Don’t stress too much! We are here to help you determine which style is best for you based on the shape of your face and your skin tone. Before you go on your next shopping spree, go through these suggestions to find your best look!
Facial Shape Matters
What shape your face is will determine the right celebrity sunglasses to accentuate your features. Our faces typically come in four different shapes; oval, round, square, or heart. Oval faces feature a balanced face amongst features with the chin being a little narrower than the forehead. Round is a soft circular shape with the width and length of the face measuring the same. Square faces have well-defined angles in the forehead, cheeks, and jawline. A heart shape is similar to the oval except that the jawline is narrower with a narrower chin. A helpful way to determine the right look is to visit a website that lets you see the styles on a face that is similar to yours!
The Oval Face
Oval faces are tough to fit in celebrity sunglasses because several styles will conflict with the facial features, but this only means it takes less time settling on the right pair. Square and rectangular frames are the most popular styles for the oval face. Be sure that you get a pair that is wider around the eyes so that it doesn’t diminish that section of your face. Do avoid frames that swallow your face. Oversized sunglasses are popular but if you go too big, it will not be nearly as flattering.
The Round Face
The goal with your round face is to avoid accentuating the roundness and bring about a slimming effect to your features (even though you certainly don’t need any slimming!). Shoot for styles that are wide but not nearly as tall. You can also opt for a clear or thinner bridge to help widen the look. Add some extra nose pads if you can and it will keep the sunglasses from resting on your cheeks.
The Square Face
Square faces need a little balance to their strong angles and lines. Round and oval celebrity styles will fit best because they soften and elongate the face. No worries, you won’t lose that sense of strength your face already exudes!
The Heart Face
Since your chin and jawline are remarkably narrower, we want to bring a little width to that area. Bottom heavy sunglasses will be your best bet! However, if your chin is decidedly pointier, an oval shape will help add a little width to that area and is an excellent choice. If you find the right sunglasses and it has a low-set temple, you have just scored the jackpot! These frames will rest lower and minimize the width of your forehead.
The Color Matters
The color of the shades are incredibly important! Cool skin tones feature pink/rosy undertone and blue-tinted veins. The colors that work best are pinks, blues, purples, tortoise, black, gray, silver, and greens. Warm skin tones feature a gold/apricot undertone and green tinted veins. The colors that work best are reds, oranges, golds, yellows, ivory, olive, browns, and tans. If you are cool toned and sporting some lovely yellow shades, it can make your skin look a little on the sickly side!
