The ones that work best for your face have the ability to highlight all your killer features and the ones that don't... well, they don't do the job that they're supposed to do (besides protecting your eyes from the bright sun, of course!).
But don't you fear, we're here to help you find the perfect pair. So pay close attention!
Various factors are involved in getting the perfect sunglasses, one of them being your (guess?) FACE SHAPE!
First of all, you need to know whether your face is round, oval, heart or square - and then read on!
1. If you have a heart-shaped face
The jawline is the narrowest point of a heart shaped face. So frames that are wider at the top than at the bottom work well with heart-shaped faces. We suggest you go for cat-eye frames as they will accentuate your face the best. Avoid going for sunglasses that are too wide.

2. If you have a round face
If you have a round face, try going for angled frames with straight lines that have some width as round faces are widest across the cheekbones and narrower at the forehead and jawline. We suggest you go for oversized, rectangular and angular frames as they will strengthen the definition of your features.

3. If you have an oval face
If your face is oval shaped, damn, God bless your parents. You guys have the perfect shape and it is extremely easy to find sunglasses for you. Just make sure that the size of the frame is in proportion with your face. Try not to go too big or too small. You can pull off any round or square frames. Perhaps you all should give cat-eye frames a try. What say?

4. If you have a square face
Square shaped faces are the ones which have sharp features and a prominent jawline. Complement your strong features with oval or rounded glasses as they will soften the angles of your face. Go for sunglasses with soft lines and rimless edges. Make sure the top frame sits high enough to downplay your jawline.
