Faces vary greatly between peoplethey make us unique and help us tell each other apart. This uniqueness is furthered by our choices in hairstyle, makeup, facial hair, as well as accessories like earrings, piercings, and, of course, eyewear.

The choices we make for ourselves can come and go with the seasons, but when developing a character for a TV show or film, these choices are often permanent and can be the defining feature of a particular character. We researched 27 well-known people from pop culture for a fun look at the use of eyewear by these characters.
