Butterfly shades are big and the sides of the shades fan out, similar to butterfly wings. Square, oval, and heart shaped faces rock these shades the best. These shades are popular in the celebrity world, as they can be big enough to hide a large part of faces, but that only adds to the appeal!

Round or rimless sunglasses can be as broad of a spectrum as half-rimmed, oblong-shaped lens to as straight-forward as circle sunglasses. People with square, oval, diamond and heart-shaped faces easily make these shades look amazing.

Although it may be confusing at first, many people still know about these suggestions, and comment further on it.

“Clearly, certain sunglasses look best on a certain face shape,” Ryleigh Butler states. “Not everyone looks good in every pair of sunglasses but some people look great in anything they put on. I am definitely not one of those people, I pick sunglasses based on what looks good on my face.”
