If you’ve got a heart-shaped face, you won’t have a hard time in your pursuit as most frames will look great on you.

An easy way to get inspiration is to look at celebrities with a similar look, like Vanessa Hudgens, Reese Witherspoon, Naomi Campbell and Nicole Richie.

I’ve scoured the internet to find those best suited to heart-shaped face and I’ve found so many I love, from Missoma, Poppy Lissiman, Ray-ban, and more.
