The science behind looking great in shades: Pair your face shape with sunglasses
that best suit your features. Here's to head-turning confidence at the beach.
Contrast softer facial curves with wider frames
to elongate and slim the face.
A strong jawline, broad forehead, and prominent
cheekbones call for frames with a rounded lower edge,
which softens bone structure and lengthens the face.

These lucky, facially balanced snowflakes can experiment
with abandon. A tip: No matter how unusual the shape of
the frames, aim for ones that are as wide as or wider than
the broadest parts of the face.
Find a perfect match in frames with a lot of curves.
Some squareness is OK, but the goal is to mirror a broad
forehead by widening the lower part of the face.

BIRD OF A FEATHER: Virgin Galactic's progress in becoming the world's first commercial spaceline passed a key test when pilots Mark Stucky
and Mike Masucci completed spaceship Unity's first flight using its feather reentry system at California's Mojave Air and Space Port. The test
was conducted during VSS Unity's fourth glide flight, which also marked the 227th flight for mother ship WhiteKnightTwo.
