Round-shaped face

 A full-rim works best. Go for thick ones as their thickness will compliment your soft face.

Triangular-shaped face 

This type of face entails a broad jaw, so it goes well with almost every type of cat-eye frame. The angular edges of the frame will make your face look balanced.

Square-shaped face 

This face looks pretty balanced. The top edges of the frame make it look sharp and more balanced.

Oval-shaped face 

There is barely a frame that doesn’t fit this face but oversized cat-eye frames work best for this face

Heart-shaped face 

Cat-eye frames look nothing below sweet on this type of face. Also, the frame pops out the prominent part of the face. Tortoise colours work best for this type of face.

In the world of eyewear, Cat-eye glasses are close to having no limits. As they rhyme with fashion and special occasions, they also go well with prescription lenses. Maybe you should consider talking to your optician about this option the next time you get a new pair of prescription glasses.
