Round faces that have a heart-shaped base—like Eva Longoria—are full all around, with prominent cheekbones that conjure images of an angelic cherub face. Basically, the width and height of the face will be almost equidistant.
Your best strategy? Opposites attract. “You want to counteract the fullness of the face,” says Kristie Whitford, spokesperson for the Vision Council, an organization that represents manufacturers and suppliers in the optical industry.
Look to rectangle and square shapes to balance out features by adding angles to the face, and or try a cat-shaped lens or on of contrasting color if you’re feeling adventurous.
Refrain from buying sunglasses that are circular or oversized round frames, as they’ll only exaggerate the roundness you already have in your features. Also, keep away from embellished frames that feature decorative temples, since the outer half will widen and draw attention to the upper half of the face.
Here are the best frames for round heart-shaped faces:
-Square-shaped sunglasses, such as Gucci’s square sunglasses with vented lenses.
-Rectangular sunglasses, like Natori’s sunglasses.
-Cat-shaped sunglasses, such as Ray-Ban Catty Clubmaster.
