Heart-shaped faces are wide at the forehead, tapering down to a point at the chin. As Nicole Scherzinger clearly knows, nothing works better on hearts than a pair of cool, classic aviators - the teardrop shape, rimless frame and sharp angles at the brim soften the chin and give a more balanced, oval look.
You’re one lucky lady if you’ve been blessed with an oval-shaped face like Gwen Stefani. With symmetry, high cheekbones and a tapered chin and jaw line, you can pull off just about any pair of sunnies. So why not work this summer's top eyewear trend and plump for a pair of sassy cat's eyes?
Square-shaped faces are equally wide at the forehead and cheeks with a strongly defined jaw line. If like Nicole Richie you’re keen to take the edge off your angles, bag a pair of this season's curved, round or oval frames, Jackie O or even John Lennon-style.
Similar to the oval shape, but with higher cheekbones, an aquiline nose and a high forehead, the long face shape is best complimented by large wraparound frames. Sarah Jessica Parker plays down the length of her face with a pair of supersized visors.
If you're rocking a round face shape like Christina Ricci – full cheeks and softly curved forehead, jawline and chin – step away from narrow, circular frames and opt for boxy shades that are slightly wider than the broadest part of the face.
