Eye Candies That Best Flatter Your Face Shape

01 Sep, 2020

Trust us when we say that we know the struggle of staying up for those inter-continental Zoom calls – and the aftermath of looking more tired than ever. Disguise those under eye bags and spice up any outfit when we’re actually out and about are what the shades are for. But here are some tips to pick your next pair based on your face shape.

For Heart-shaped Face

Show off that envious jawline of yours with some upswept butterfly styles or aviators!

From afar, Linda Farrow’s Dunaway makes a theatrical entrance with its over-the-top black brow bar, crafted with Italian acetate. Upclose, the starry embellishments along the rim and temples take the drama to new heights. In celebration of the brand’s 50th anniversary, the iconic model is given an upgrade with 22-karat yellow gold-plated eyelets at the temples. Tie a scarf through the eyelets to make a nod to the oh-so-vintage style.

As Pantone revealed the must-have color for Fall 2020 being “Misty Jade,” Prada’s Decode is going to make a perfect summer-to-fall transition piece with its pastel mint lenses. Though if you think they are only pretty to look at, think again. Prada Chromic, the photochromic lenses exclusive to the fashion house adapts to any change of sunlight in a matter of seconds, to make sure you’re on top of your style game anywhere you go.

Aviator sunglasses seem to never go out of style. With the silhouette being so universally flattering, we just can’t blame them. Celine’s Metal Aviator and Navigator revisit the classic styles and turn the once strictly utilitarian design runway-appropriate. The exquisite Celine signature is engraved on the top bar to convey a subtle, modern edge.

For Rectangular-shaped Face

Go for rounded-frames to soften the proportions and balance your cheekbones.

RIMOWA Bridge and RIMOWA Rim

This season, RIMOWA expands its horizons from premium luggage to eyewear. RIMOWA  Bridge and RIMOWA Rim make the grand debut with an array of varieties to choose from. Among all, the slightly more rounded rendition of the aviator style, the Bridge Pilot Crystal, caught our eyes almost immediately. The polarized sunglasses are crafted from two overlaid pieces of Nylon frame that contrasts with the metal temples. The lightweight style and adjustable nose pads promise unparalleled comfort.

TRESBIND's P.O.P and GWHR collection

Another eyewear brand to look out for is TRESBIND . Co-founded by Puyi and Japanese designer Eque.M, TRESBIND is synonymous with top-notch design, craftsmanship, and functionality. P.O.P, the round-design and thin titanium silhouette, is perfect for softening prominent cheekbones while the vivid color palette brightens up the look and flatters any skin tones.

For Round-shaped Face

To sharpen your features, go with angular designs with clean lines.

xVESSEL 2nd Collection Sunglasses

Another label housed by Puyi, xVESSEL is here to please those with fuller cheeks and softer curves. The bold square frames define CHILLED , a pair that boasts a classic glossy black frame with stylish gray lenses to scream total geek-chic. The design inspiration evolves around creator Van Ness Wu’s exploration of the “Seventh Dimension” and mysticism.

For Oval-shaped Face

Arguably the most versatile face shape of all. Why not go bold and rock those styles that would make your heart pound?

Ray-Ban's geometric styles

Ray-Ban’s new, You’re On campaign celebrates liberation and freedom. The latest drop, the daring Octagonal and Hexagonal styles fuse elements of fun with playful geometric shapes. The quirky, futuristic sunnies and spectacles make such statement pieces. Yet the comfort of their wearers are not compromised thanks to the feather-light metal frames.

Audacious and self-expressive, BVLGARI’s B. ZERO1 is an oversized, unique style with an edgy touch. The semi-rim metal design and double-bar bridge draw attention to the eyes. The style comes with gold mirror or grape amethyst and coral lens tones. The openwork temples with black, “Moon pearl” amethyst or silky coral enamel complete the understated aesthetics.
