The Best Sunglasses For Your Face Shape


Do you ever have a hard time finding the right glasses for your face shape? Choosing new sunglasses for everyday wear isn’t exactly rocket science. Still, there are a few things to consider before investing in your next pair, such as the fit, UV protection, lens quality, shape and material.



With Lenicc, you can ensure that perfect fit as their sunglasses are specially designed to fit Asian’s facial proportions.

  • Lenses: The base curves of these lenses are tweaked and flattened to follow your facial contours better.
  • Frame: The pantoscopic tilt angle is reduced to adjust for higher cheekbone features.
  • Nose pads: The depth and angle is steepened to cater to the relatively flatter nose bridge.

Lenicc redefines eyewear as a creative yet essential asset that enhances each individual’s fashion style. You can tailor your glasses to match your lifestyle and face shape. 

Whether you have an oval, round, heart or square-shaped face, there’s a pair out there just for you! With our little guide, you can find the perfect frame according to your face shape.

What Is My Face Shape?

When it comes to buying sunglasses, your face shape plays a significant role because it will help you find a better fitting and more functional pair of sunglasses.

Not sure what your face shape is?

Oval Face Shape


Features: Balanced forehead, cheekbones and jaw.
Best: Rectangle, Square, Aviator Frames
Avoid: Oversized Frames

An oval face shape is considered to be ideal because of its balanced proportions. Just about any pair of glasses will flatter your oval face. Feel free to go bold with a funky colour, texture or frame shape. The only tip is to steer away from oversized frames. Try Lenicc’s Asori collection.

Round Face Shape


Features: Full cheekbones; narrow forehead and jaw.
Best: Wide; Rectangle, Square Frames
Avoid: Small, Oval Frames

Choose frames as wide as they are tall to create the illusion of a slimmer face. Aim for styles that add contrast to your face’s natural curves, and avoid frames that exaggerate the roundness of it. By adding contrast, you’ll make your round face appear thinner and longer. Take a look at Lenicc’s Asori collection to pick the right frame for your face shape.

Square Face Shape


Features: Broad forehead, square jawline.
Best: Round, Oval, Cat-eye Frames
Avoid: Square, Sharp, Geometric Frames

If you have a square-shaped face, choose round corners frames sized to match you in width, but with soft lines. A round frame will soften as well as add contrast to your angular features, making your face stand out. Explore Lenicc’s Atalia collection.

Oblong Face Shape


Features: Long face; narrow chin and cheeks.
Best: Oversized Frames
Avoid: Small Frames

An oblong face works especially well with oversized sunglasses. Try frames that have more depth than the width and with tall rims to create balanced proportions on an oblong face. Also, frames with decorative or contrasting temples will help to add width to the face.  Another option is to opt for sharp-looking frames like those with square shape. They will accentuate the sharp features on your face and break the long lines of your face. Explore Lenicc different collections – Atalia, Arosa and Asori and pick your perfect fit!

Diamond Face Shape


Features: Narrow at the forehead and jawline, broad cheekbones.
Best: Oval, Round, Cat-eye Frames
Avoid: Rectangle, Square Frames

Many glasses frames suit diamond-shaped faces, so long as they’re in keeping with your proportions. The best look for your face shape is round and oval frames which help to add softness to angular features, while cat-eye frames can add volume around narrow cheekbones. These shapes will help balance your face and highlight your features. You can try Lenicc’s Atalia & Arosa collection.

Heart Face Shape


Features: Wide forehead and cheekbones; narrow chin.
Best: Cat-eye, Round Frames
Avoid: Bottom-heavy, Oversized Frames

The two most distinguishing features of a heart-shaped face are high cheekbones and a jawline that tapers to a defined chin. Look for round or oval-shaped frames that are thin and lightly coloured. Avoid bottom-heavy frames, oversized frames, and frames with a lot of design elements. Frames in light colours or with detailing, like a tortoise or floral pattern, will help soften your features. Choose your preferred lens, frames and arms, be creative and customised your pair with Lenicc!
