People are often confused about the type of sunglasses that they should buy. To acquire a pair that looks stylish and comes with a good fitting, face size and shape are two major areas that you need to focus on. Here are some steps that you can take to acquire a pair that suits your needs perfectly:–
Take a Proper Measurement of your Face
By measuring the dimensions of your face, you will get a clear idea about its shape and size. To measure it, you will have to stand in front of the mirror. First, use the end of a tape to measure cheekbone to cheekbone. Note down the number. Then, you will have to measure your jawline. You will have to measure the end of your jawbone to the other end, in the area around your face’s bottom. Note it down as well.
Next, you will have to measure the face length from the hairline’s centre to the front of your nose, and bottom of your chin. Write down its measurement also. The last area that you will need measure is the width of your forehead., from one side of the hairline to the other, halfway between the top hairline and eyes. Keep a note of this measurement as well. By comparing these measurements with each other, you will be able to find out the exact face size you have.
Determine the Shape of your Face
Once you have decided to determine the size of your face, you will be able to find out the shape. From the face shapes mentioned below, find out the one that matches your face:-
Round- People with a round face have less define dangled and more noticeable curves. The most suitable eyewear for this face shape shouldn’t have curved features. But it should emphasize sharp angular lines that make the face appear thinner and sharper. If you have this type of face shape, then you should opt for high-on-temple, colorful frames. The ideal pair for a round shaped face should be either rectangle, square or wrap.
Oval- Oval faced shapes go well with any frame. This face shape is a bit rounded but even in features. From sports to designer and fashion sunglasses, there is no dearth of options for a user with oval shaped face. All that you need to ensure is not to use big frames that can impede symmetrical features. You should rather look for sunglasses that cover the area up to the cheekbones.
Once you determine your face shape, you need to decide on the sunglass style that you would go for. From butterfly to semi-rimless and shield, there is no dearth of options. You should compare the different sunglass styles well so as to select the one that fits your face perfectly.
