The Best Coloured Contacts for Dark Eyes

Medically reviewed by Tina Patel, Contact Lens Optician at Feel Good Contacts.

Fashion doesn’t have to be restricted to your clothes, hair, and make-up; coloured contact lenses are also a fun and easy way to change your look.

Coloured contacts are perfect for day-to-day styles or seasonal holidays such as Halloween and are available in prescription and Plano (zero power).

People with light coloured eyes are lucky enough that most coloured lenses will show up on their eyes. However, people with darker eyes may need to be a bit pickier when choosing the right coloured lenses as the tint can be too sheer. This means a lot of the natural colour of the iris will show through, essentially diluting the colour of the lens. For this reason, darker eyes need a more opaque lens for the colour to show more vividly. Let’s get into the best coloured contact lenses for dark eyes.

What are coloured contact lenses?

Coloured lenses are the same as regular contact lenses; the only difference is that they have a coloured film added to the inner area of the lens to change the colour of the eye. The very centre is clear, so you can see through them.

Coloured contact lenses are available in many different colours, including blue, green, brown, and grey and can be worn regardless of your natural eye colour.

Even if you have perfect vision, you can still enjoy coloured contact lenses as they are available in plano (0.00 power), without prescription. To avoid damaging your eyes or vision, always ensure you are getting your coloured lenses from a reputable contact lens retailer, such as Feel Good Contacts.

Do coloured contacts work on dark eyes?

Yes, coloured contacts do work on dark eyes. However, you will want to choose a more opaque colour to allow the colour of the lens to show through your iris. If you want a more natural colour, you can opt for a less opaque lens.

For those with lighter eyes, you may want to experiment with different coloured lenses to find your perfect match. If you want to subtly enhance your natural eye colour, opt for a less opaque lens, but if you want a striking new look, a more opaque lens will do the trick.

Will blue contacts work on brown eyes?

Blue contact lenses will work on brown eyes if they are vibrant enough; however, the shade of blue might show up slightly differently. It will depend on the intensity of your natural eye colour. Here are our top blue contact lens options for brown eyes:

What colour contacts does Kylie Jenner Wear?

Kylie Jenner first became known for her appearance in one of the most popular reality TV shows, alongside her famous sisters – she has since created a name for herself and amassed her own incredible social media following. As well as a businesswoman, she has become one of the most influential style icons.

Kylie’s contact lenses often depend on her choice of outfit and makeup. She is usually seen wearing lenses that make her dark eyes appear lighter. To imitate Kylie Jenner’s look when wearing contact lenses, we suggest wearing a lens like Air Optix Colors in Sterling Grey or Hazel. Air Optix Colors offers a 3 in 1 colour mix that will ensure you get a noticeable, but natural-looking colour change, just like Kylie Jenner’s contact lenses. Additionally, these lenses are made from silicone hydrogel, so you won’t have to trade comfort for fashion.

If you’re on a tight budget but still want the Kylie look, FreshLook Colorblends also offers an array of stunning colours to choose from. Get Kylie Jenner’s contact lenses for a more affordable price with FreshLook Colorblends.
