For the perfect example of a heart-shaped face, look no further than America’s sweetheart, Reese Witherspoon.
The telltale signs of a heart-shaped face are a wide forehead, high cheekbones, and a narrow jawline or pointed chin.
There’s a reason Betty Boop was drawn with an exaggerated heart—heart-shaped faces are ultra-feminine and sweet.
“The goal with sunglasses is to broaden the appearance of the jawline and minimize the width of forehead,” says Kristie Whitford, spokesperson for the Vision Council, an organization that represents manufacturers and suppliers in the optical industry.
To balance the proportions of your face, choose shades that are wider at the bottom, like aviators or fuller all around like oversize, rounded Jackie O sunglasses, suggests Sam Saboura, celebrity stylist and YouBeauty Style Expert.
Rimless frames, especially in light colors, are also a smart choice. They highlight your cheekbones and draw the eye away from a wide forehead. “You don’t want a small frame on a heart-shaped face because it will exaggerate the width the face,” says Whitford.Ditch embellished frames and decorative temples, which will only accentuate the broadness of your upper face.
Here are the best frames for heart-shaped faces:
* Butterfly sunglasses, Versace sunglasses, $220.
* Aviators, such as Tom Ford eyewear cole aviator sunglasses, $320.
* Rimless glasses, such as Dior metallic 53MM square sunglasses, $500.
* Butterfly sunglasses, like Michael Kors MK2010B 60 Bora Bora, $245.
