Lait Collection GIA Mini Dress

Believe it or not, not all sunglasses are made equal.

I am severely disappointed when I buy some cute frames only to find out afterward that they fall off my face or make dents in my cheeks from prolonged wear…all because I have an Asian face.

When it comes to sunglasses and eyewear, common problems for Asian faces may include:

  • Sliding down the bridge of your nose.
  • Regularly hits your cheeks.
  • May make indents from prolonged wear.
  • Frames shift up and down when you make any facial movement such as smiling or laughing.
  • Lenses touch your eyelashes and can ruin your makeup.
  • Frames fall off your face while bending over. This has happened to me countless times.

Features to be aware of when choosing the right frames for Asian faces:

  • High cheekbones
  • A broad or wide face
  • Flatter face
  • A low and sloping nose bridge
  • Smaller faces

Now that we know what to look for, let’s explore some popular eyewear brands made to fit Asian faces.
