Choosing Sunglasses for Round Faces

People that lack strong angular features, generally have soft, round faces. Celebrities with round faces include Kate Bosworth, Olivia Munn, Kelly Clarkson, Charlize Theron, Mila Kunis, Jenna Ushkowitz, Emma Stone, Mandy Moore, Kirsten Dunst, Adele, Tatyana Ali, Queen Latifah, Paula Deen, Christina Ricci, Kelly Osbourne, Drew Barrymore, Fergie, Mariska Hargitay, Hayden Panettiere, Renne Zellweger and Michelle Williams.

When determining if you have a round facial shape, the width and length of your face should be nearly equal, or at least similar in size or measurements. To help add definition and angles to round faces, it is recommended that sunglasses for round faces include the exact opposite shape of the face, which helps add structure.

Instead of accentuating full, round faces, it is important to counterbalance this fullness. This means that sunglasses for round faces should include more rectangle or square-shaped styles. Wide sunglasses for round faces help balance facial fullness and narrow round features. Bulk sunglasses for round faces that feature bright, contrasting colors or cat-eye shapes to add lift to round faces, which are extremely flattering.

It’s best to avoid sunglasses for round faces that feature round or curvy features, which won’t balance round faces and will instead add too many curves, making faces appear fuller and wider.

When choosing bulk sunglasses for round faces, Olympic Eyewear, a leading bulk sunglasses retail for sunglasses for round faces recommends looking for rectangular shape sunglasses, square-shape sunglasses or even retro style sunglasses, such as Wayfarer sunglasses.

For people that want accurate results to help determine their facial shapes, consider the following tips:

  • Measure Face – Measure the face from cheekbone to cheekbone, starting just below the eye at the top cheekbone area. Write down this number.
  • Measure the Jaw Line – Just below the ears, locate the jaw line. Measure from the right side of the jawbone to the left jawbone, measuring with the tape measure located under the chin. Write down this number.
  • Measure Length – Measure from the very center of the hairline, straight over the nose and to the bottom of the chin. Write down this number.
  • Forehead Width – To determine the forehead width; start by measuring from hairline to hairline, halfway between the top hairline and eyebrows. Write down this number.

Round faces are characteristic of high temples and lack angular lines that make faces look sharp and thin. This type of shape looks best in sunglasses for round features, which feature shield, wrap, rectangle and square sunglasses.
