Medically reviewed by Tina Patel, Contact Lens Optician at Feel Good Contacts
Coloured contact lenses are a fun way to enhance your look. Not just a fun addition to your fancy dress costume, coloured lenses can be worn occasionally or even daily to change your look. Wondering how to choose coloured contacts for blue eyes? Read on to discover the best coloured contact lenses for blue eyes.
Do coloured contacts work on blue eyes?
Although a lot of people believe blue to be the most attractive eye colour, it’s fun to try out different eye colours. Coloured contacts for blue eyes will often show a dramatic change when they wear many different coloured lenses. This is because lighter eyes make the perfect base for adding vibrancy and brightness to any lens that is placed on top.
Brown coloured lenses
If you have blue eyes are you’re looking for a dramatic yet natural look, brown can be a fun change. Hazel or dark brown can work, depending on how fair or dark you are, but both will provide a natural looking finish.
Green coloured lenses
Green is similar to blue in tone and so this can be another subtle way to enhance your natural eye colour. If the green lenses are especially opaque and vibrant, it can be a noticeable change, but there are also more muted and darker green coloured lenses. You will also be adding some unique charm to your look, as only 2% of the world’s population have green eyes.
Blue coloured lenses
Are there coloured contacts for light blue eyes? Yes, there is. There are so many different shades of blue. Some people have naturally pale blue eyes, whilst others have more grey-blue and some have bright and striking blue eyes. Whichever shade your eyes are, enhancing blue eyes with coloured contacts need not be a dramatic change to be effective.
If your eyes are on the pale or dull side, you may want a dramatic bright blue lens to add some enhancement. If your eyes are already very bright, you may want a paler blue lens to tone down your look.
