An oval face is taller than it is wide, while round faces look more like a circle. Is your forehead wider than your jaw? You’re probably a heart. Square faces have broad jawlines. Every face is different: knowing which is your shape can help you find the most suitable eyewear.
There are four main face shapes: oval, round, heart and square. If your forehead is wider than your jaw, you’re probably a heart. Square faces have broad jawlines. An oval face is taller than it is wide, while round faces look more like a circle.
Measure the width from ear to ear and the distance between the top of the forehead and your chin. Then, measure both your forehead and your jawline at their widest point. From these proportions, you’ll find out if you have an oval, round, square or heart shaped face.

You may also use a pair of sunglasses you currently own to determine your best size. Frame sizing is typically noted on the inside of either temple (see illustration below). The eye/lens size is usually first, then the bridge size, then temple size. Use the eye/lens size to determine the best frame size.
The eye size is typically going to be the most important size for identifying how a pair of sunglasses will look. The eye size number measures the width of the lens, measured from the bridge, in millimeters. The bridge width is the distance between the lenses in millimeters. And the third number is the length of the temple in millimeters.
