Hello! My name is Meghan Victoria (she/her) and I am the Founder & Creative Director of SOL KYST. I have over a decade of experience working in the beauty industry as a Toronto based professional makeup/hair artist and later, content creator.
I set out to use my knowledge and expertise of face shapes and the principles of beauty and symmetry to create the perfect sunglasses that not only fit a wider face but flattered it as well.
From the beginning It was really important to me that I wasn't just widening the measurements of basic sunglasses but truly honing in on the features associated with a wider face and bringing them to life with a brand new thoughtfully crafted design.
I used a lot of makeup techniques as my inspiration. I thought about how to craft our products using the energy of line work, depth and contrast and most notably the art of light and shadow to create the illusions of a more defined jawline and cheekbones while also bringing more beauty, balance and definition to the face.
Every part of our process is chosen with care and intention. From packaging to materials to the small details in our designs.
SOL KYST started as a sunglasses brand and a way for me to give back to unserved niche but it has grown into an incredible community of wide face babes all around the world feeling beautiful and confident in our own skin. Through the power of social media, connection and size inclusivity SOL KYST is making a difference in the lives of so many and as I like to say... we are just getting started.
