Which coloured contacts will suit me?
If you're new to wearing coloured contact lenses, you may be wondering which shades will suit you best. Some coloured contact lenses are suited better to some hair colours and skin tones. However, choosing the right coloured contacts depends on the type of eye colour update you’re after, whether it be a subtle enhancement of your eye’s natural colour or introducing an entirely different eye color.
In terms of which shade of coloured contact lens you need, the effectiveness of enhancement lenses will depend on your hair colour and skin tone. However, by wearing opaque tinted coloured contacts, you won’t need to worry as much about your natural look.
Those with lighter eyes looking to add a subtle change would typically succeed with FreshLook Colorblends or SofLens Natural Colors.. In comparison, those with darker eyes can often achieve a striking look using opaque lenses such as FreshLook Colors.
For more advice on finding coloured contacts to suit your hair colour, skin tone and desired look, visit our Eye Care Hub for a helpful guide on coloured contact lenses and how to match your coloured contacts to your hair colour.

Thinking about trying coloured contact lenses for the first time? Here is some advice:
- Never share contact lenses with your friends, whether you're looking to try a new colour for your Halloween Costume or want to switch up your look. Swapping contact lenses can lead to eye infections as well as eye strain.
- Look after your lenses on a day-to-day basis, whether they are dailies or monthly coloured lenses.
- Discontinue using your lenses if your eyes become irritated. Sore, painful or itchy eyes could indicate an underlying eye infection. If your coloured contact lenses are causing you discomfort, take them out immediately.
- Don't be afraid to experiment. Coloured contact lenses are a fun way to try new looks. Remember, if you haven't already been prescribed coloured contact lenses, speak to your optician and get a contact lens fitting.

Not maintaining the hygiene of your lenses or wearing them longer than recommended will put your eyes at risk of damage from eye infections.

How long you can wear coloured contact lenses will depend on the lens that has been prescribed to you, as well as its wearing schedule. You can usually wear your lenses for about 8 hours, but this may vary depending on the brand and how long they remain comfortable. If it is a daily disposable lens, it must be discarded after a full days wear.
