Ray-Ban Wayfarer for round face

Finding The Right Sunglasses For Your Face Shape

Today’s post is all about finding the right sunglasses for your face shape.

I was recently asked by Sunglasses Shop to identify my face shape using their Ray-Ban Face Shape Guide to see which pair of Ray-Bans would suit me best.

This was a really fun task and I identified my face as being round. On the advice of the guide, the two best Ray-Ban sunglasses for my round face were the Wayfarer and the Shooter Havana.

The Wayfarers were more my style, so they were sent to me as a gift and I am really pleased with the selection. So pleased in fact that I think I may have found my best ever sunglasses.

I have tried a few pairs of Ray-Bans in the past including the club masters and another smaller pair of wayfarers in black and I really don’t think that they suited me as much as this pair. So by using the face shape guide, it’s amazing that the advice worked and I seem to have found my perfect pair.

I went for a frame size that is wider than my face which gives the face a slimming effect.

What do you think?

Sunglasses shop also have a competition on at the moment to win an exclusive trip to New York. To enter, all you need to do is upload a pic of yourself wearing our own Ray-Ban sunglasses on Instagram and tag @sunglassesshop and use #SGSFaceShape. If you do not have Ray-Ban sunglasses you can print off one of their face shape guide pictures and colour in to add your own unique style. Terms and conditions are also available to see on the Sunglasses Shop website.

If you have already used the guide I would love to know what type of Ray-Ban are suited to your face shape. Let me know in the comments section below.

      Haha thanks Gabrielle, your comment made me smile. Actually I only have a really thin layer of foundation, blusher and lipstick so I think it must be that I have caught the sun as my hair is getting lighter too. Really glad you liked the post and have a great day. Gemma x

    As soon as I saw your pic on Facebook wearing these glasses, I thought, omg, she looks STUNNING! Everything you’re wearing here is so well suited for your face shape and skin tone. Those glasses are indeed a perfect match for your face and the orange lip, well, you already know my thoughts, haha! Your hair also look so voluminous and frames your face so beautifully! Absolutely gorgeous, Gemma! This site sounds wonderful because selecting sunglasses, especially online, can be a challenge, so having a guide that helps simplify the process for your face shape is incredibly helpful! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have an amazing week ahead!

    I got my previous sunglasses according to the face shape and went for something I wouldn’t normally go but I actually like it. Wayfarers suit you! Also loving the sunset photos, it gave softness to the photos! x

  • http://thesixthdisneyprincess.blogspot.com Jasmine Riel

    Awesome post, Gemma. I rock a pair of Ray-ban wayfarers as well. I decided to get them in the XL size since they’re slightly over-sized as I’ve found that my face shape is slightly on the larger side but I wanted something classic that could go with everything and last me a long time. You are lookin’ goooooood!


    • http://www.jacquardflower.uk Jacquard Flower

      Ahh thanks Jasmine, yes I think that’s what I went for it says 55, I was going to go for the smaller but glad I didn’t it actually makes a lot of difference!. Have a great day! Gemma x

    For me it’s always difficult to find the perfect sunglasses…usually I opted for the same models :aviators or cat-eyes^_^

      Thanks Sophia x

  • http://www.honesty-virtue.com/ Ailyn Koay

    does suit you! I often pick based on it staying on my face rather than style.. harder to find one that doesn’t slide off after a while.

      Thanks Ailyn, x

    Nice sunnies, I’ve always love Ray-Ban. Too bad I lost 2 of them. Their online face shape guide is cool and a big help.

      Thanks Mercy! Have a great day! Gemma x

  • http://awayfromtheblue.blogspot.com/ Mica

    I think your sunnies look great! ๐Ÿ™‚ The classic Ray-Ban wayfarers seem to look good on everyone I find, I love mine, although who knows, I might have gone for a different pair if I’d had a guide picking the best one for me, I’ve never used anything like that before.
