How to choose the right glasses for your face shape?

Contrary to popular belief, sunglasses are not only worn when it is warm. At Ape, we have always been confused as to why squint people don’t buy a nice pair of sunglasses and take them with them as daily necessities—just like they wear ordinary glasses.

Sunglasses are not only an opportunity that people often overlook to add fashion, personality and coolness to clothes, they are also a necessary factor for maintaining eye health. Blocking harmful UV rays-whether in unexpected sunny winter days or in midsummer-is very important. It’s better to do it in style.

Precautions for purchase
First of all, before buying a new pair of sunglasses, you should carefully consider the following things.

Choose sunglasses that suit your face shape

There is nothing worse than buying a pair of sunglasses online and discovering that they don’t fit. But don’t be afraid, there are ways to solve this problem. Measuring the size of your face can help you understand its size and shape, suitable for wearing sunglasses. Write down the following numbers:

  1. Cheekbone to cheekbone. Place one end of the measuring tape under the eyes. This is the top of your cheekbones. Measure to the same point on the other side of your face.
  2. Jaw line. Position the end of your jawbone under your ear. Measure from side to side, around the bottom of your face.
  3. The length of the face. Measure a straight line from the center of the hairline, from the front of the nose to the bottom of the chin.
  4. Forehead width. Put the tape measure between the eyebrows and hair. Measure the width of your forehead from one side of the hairline to the other.

Compare your measurements and use them to calculate your face shape.

Knowing your face shape will make you one step closer to choosing the right sunglasses.

Round. A round face is characterized by a narrow forehead and a curved chin. Insufficient supply of limited angles.
Square. The length and width of the square face are similar, with a broad forehead and obvious chin lines.
Oval. The oval faces have a slight round, largely uniform feature, making them suitable for almost any kind of decoration.
Rectangular. Rectangular faces, also called rectangles, are long and narrow with the smallest angle.
Diamond. The diamond-shaped face is characterized by a narrow chin and a sharp outline. The cheekbones are the widest part of the face.
The heart-shaped face, sometimes called the triangular face, is narrow and strong at the chin and widest at the temples.

Choose sunglasses that suit your face shape

Round. A round face lacks a natural contour, so look for a pair of sunglasses that can add to this contour. An angular hairstyle can lengthen your temples and face. Don’t choose a round frame that fits your face shape.
Square. Strong natural features require larger frames and smallest details, and will not compete for attention. The pilot is a good choice.
Oval. The oval is considered the holy grail of face shapes. Almost anything is suitable, just remember the proportions. Any frame that is too big or too small for your face will look ugly.
Rectangular. Choose a round or square frame to offset the long and narrow lines from forehead to chin. Insist that the frame does not extend to the widest part of your face.
Diamond. Choose vertical rather than horizontal deep frames to accentuate your prominent cheekbones. A little cat’s eye smell will make your face look more natural.
Heart-shaped. Don’t wear high sunglasses, which will accentuate your broad eyebrow line. The retro rectangular style balances your pointed chin.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sunglasses
What color is best for wearing sunglasses?
Some colors, such as gray, amber, and green, can block more sunlight, making them useful for baseball and golf players. However, if you want something that can cut off the light from reflective surfaces (such as roads or water), use a polarized lens.

Are bigger sunglasses better?
If your glasses cover a wider area, then your eyes will suffer less sun damage. Therefore, oversized or round-frame glasses are better.

How to choose the right sunglasses?
Find a pair of earrings that match the shape of your face. The general rule is that the shape of the sunglasses should be opposite to the shape of your face. Also, buy a pair of classic style shoes so you can wear them for many years.
