A general rule for sunglasses is smaller frames are best on smaller faces as larger frames are better on larger faces.

Best Sunglasses for Round Faces

    • The aim for you rounded faces is to make your face appear longer and thinner, generally more balanced. As all your features are soft with no angles or definition you need to choose frame shapes that give the illusion of angles and minimizes curves.
    • Frames should be slightly wider than the widest part of your face, rectangle and square along with any other angular shape glasses will compliment a round face best.
    • Make sure glasses are wider than they are deep, this will help lengthen the face. If frames are deeper than they are wide they will only make the face appear even shorter and rounder.
  • Choose frames that have some detailing or pattern on the sides, this will draw attention up past your full cheeks and to your fabulous eyes.

Hi, After a long search, I found what I wanted, very informative..I wanted to know what kind of glasses would go with a round face with some photos and details.I am a little confused as you said, a round face needs to avoid glasses that don’t cover eyebrows.right? where as on top of the page, I can see a cute round faced girl wearing glasses that is not covering her eye brows, and the glasses suit her.
