If you want to achieve a stylish look and find the right sunglasses for your face shape, first step is to determine what shape does your face actually have. There are four basic shapes that we distinguish - oval, rectangular, heart and round shape. In order to determine yours, you don’t need to use a ruler, you can simply estimate it by measuring the span with your fingers. Since today’s post is devoted to oval faces, let’s check out their characteristic features:

• your face is long and thin

• your chin is slightly narrower than your forehead

• your face is widest at your cheekbones

• your jawline is rounded and has no hard lines to it

So what do you think? Are you oval-shaped face type? If your answer is yes, then you should continue reading and find out more about pieces of eyewear that are predestined to create a perfect match for you. Let’s find out the right sunglasses for you, oval faces. We present you a special selection of sunglasses that are definitely a ‘go’ for you either you’re a man or a woman.
