As the face of trendy yet inexpensive sunglass brand Prive Revaux, Hailee Steinfeld rocks the Queen shades, which highlight her oval face.
OVAL FACE SHAPE
“Extreme cat-eyes accentuate your cheekbones and balance their horizontal structure,” said Sabine Volcic, director of product assortment at Sunglass Hut.

SQUARE FACE SHAPE

SABINE’S EXPERT TIPS
Opposites Attract: A general rule is to focus on balancing your proportions and think of opposites. Square face equals round frame.
Clean Carefully: Don’t wipe lenses with a T-shirt; it scratches them, especially after a day at the beach. Use cleaning solution and a microfiber cloth to polish.
Invest in Lenses: Polarized lenses reduce glare, and mirrored lenses block more UV rays than basic tinted lenses.
