Finding the Best Glasses For Your Heart-Shaped Face
- BY Matt Souza
Finding the stylish glasses that both look great and fit your face can feel challenging, but it doesn’t have to be. There’s a perfect pair (or pairs!) of glasses out there for everyone. Once you find the right pair, you can use them as the centerpiece of a new outfit, or wear them everyday as a wardrobe staple.
How To Identify A Heart-Shaped Face
A heart face typically has a broader forehead, prominent cheekbones, and a narrower chin.
Some celebrities with heart-shaped faces include Kourtney Kardashian, Reese Witherspoon, Chris Hemsworth, and Bradley Cooper.
People often think that they have one face shape, when they actually have another. Take our Zenni Face Shape Quiz to determine your face shape and find the most flattering glasses.
People with a heart-shaped face should generally try to avoid browlines and small oval frames. Keep in mind that these are general recommendations and not hard and fast rules. It’s most important to wear what makes you feel your best!
There are a few specific frames shapes that flatter heart-shaped faces the most. If you want to soften the angular features of your heart-shaped face, try a pair of round frames. To add balance, opt for rectangle frames. We’ve highlighted some of our favorite picks below.
A lot of styles, especially oval & cat-eye with a wide nose bridge work well here; rimless glasses and heart-shaped faces are a match made in heaven.
Round frames are considered to be one of the shapes for heart-shaped faces because they help “soften” angular features and draw attention away from your chin or forehead.

The bottom heavy design of aviators draws the eye downward and flattens the bottom part of a heart-shaped face to soften prominent angular features.

Rectangular frames balance the curves of a heart-shaped face. Try a pair of thin metal rectangle frames in a light color to prevent your features from looking too top-heavy.
Rimless and semi-rimless glasses are unobtrusive options – they don’t highlight anything and draw attention downwards to your jawline.

Sunglasses For A Heart-Shaped Face
Sunglasses follow the same rules as regular glasses when it comes to choosing the best frame shape for specific face shape. If you find a pair of frames on Zenni’s website that you love, you can turn them into sunglasses by adding a tint and/or mirror.
