perfect sunglasses for your face shape.

If you have darker skin or hair, you can pull off darker colored and more rectangular sunglasses.
If you have lighter skin or hair, stick to browns and yellows with a slight curve to them. Dark ones will over power you.
The perfect type of sunglasses for women with round face are aviators, wayfarers, cat eye glasses, rectangular and square glasses.

2. Triangular Face Shape
You have a triangular face if your chin is pointed or defined. Check the width of your forehead compared to your chin. If your forehead is wider, then you have a triangular face.

Opt for rectangular sunglasses that balance out the chin to forehead ratio. If you have smaller features, stick with smaller lenses. But if you have more prominent features (or a beard) you can pull off larger lenses.

Glasses that work best for triangular face shape are frame less glasses, cat eye glasses, aviators and round glasses.
3. Rectangular face shape
Opt for massive looking glasses with slender frames and transparent lenses.
4. Oval face
An oval shaped face looks great with glasses because it enhances its natural beauty. Balanced proportions, high cheek bones and a slightly narrow chin are its main qualities.
Avoid frames extra large frames for your face and cover up more than half of it. A pair that covers up too much of your face will be overwhelming.
When choosing glasses for oval face shapes you also want to remember colour. Colours that match with your eyes and hair are going to look the best and will get you the most compliments.
