Tips and Trends for the Right Shades for your Face

Summer is here, which means sun, sand, flip flops, SPF and my favorite must-have sunglasses. Sunglasses do not have to cost a lot of money to work well. Less expensive sunglasses marked as 100% UV blocking can be just as effective at protecting the eyes as other pricier options.

So if you want to pay the big bucks, by all means, grab a pair of Gucci’s. But don’t let labels fool you. Instead, pay attention to how they look.

  1. Round shaped Faces
    If your face has a more rounded jawline, you most likely have a round face. To balance out your less angular features, add a pair of wide or rectangular frames. Try Ray-Ban Wayfarer 52mm Sunglasses, $125, Amazon.



2. Oval Shaped Faces
An oval-shaped face is slightly longer in the lower half and has a bit of a rounded jaw. If you have an oval face, you’re going to want soft, angular frames like aviator sunglasses. Try Lilly Pulitzer Women’s Lexy Polarized Aviator Sunglasses, $48, Amazon.




3. Heart Shape Face
If you have a wider forehead and the rest of your face gradually narrows to your chin, your face is heart-shaped. The best frames for you are cat-eye sunglasses or round frames. Try Joopin Fashion Cat Eye Sunglasses, $12, Amazon.




Here are some tips on how to choose the best sunglasses: Six Things to Consider.

  1. Make it 100 percent. The single most important thing to look for when buying sunglasses to protect your eyes is a sticker or tag indicating that they block 100 percent of UV ray….
  2. Bigger is better. (Music to my ears)…
  3. Darker lenses don’t protect better. …
  4. Color doesn’t matter. …
  5. Polarized lenses cut glare, not UV. …
  6. Cost shouldn’t be a factor.
