Color Contact Lenses - How to Find Best Contacts

Aug 17, 2007
Selecting color contact lenses can be tricky. Lenses that look great on one person might look awful in another person's eyes. How would you choose best color contacts? Here are some tips.

To start, you should know that color contact lenses can be of two types - opaque lenses and enhancement color contacts. Enhancements colors lenses give you eyes a slightly different hue or make your eyes appear brighter and more sparkling. They are only suitable for people with light eyes - blue, green, grey or light brown. These lenses are partially transparent which makes them look very natural.

On the other hand, opaque lenses can completely change your eye color. These lenses are not transparent, so they are ideal for people with dark eyes. If your natural color is brown and you want sky blue eyes, you will need opaque color contacts, enhancements won't do the job for you. People with light eyes can wear both types of lenses, depending on the effect they want.

Best color contacts to make your natural color brighter

For girls with naturally blue eyes, blue or aqua color contacts work wonders. You may ask why a person with blue eyes would want colored lenses. Because blue enhancement lenses can make a great difference in your appearance. Your eyes are still blue, but they look much brighter and attract attention. My own eyes are blue and I love wearing blue tint color contacts, my favorite is Acuvue 2 colors "Ocean Blue"

For naturally grey eyes blue tints also work very well. The color appears not as intensive blue as over blue eyes, more a blue-grey, but it looks very natural and attractive. Best choices here are Freshlook Dimensions or Acuvue 2 Colors.

Green color contacts look excellent over blue or grey eyes. The change is quite noticeable as jade green is mixed with your natural color.

And to add sparkling to your eyes you can try Freshlook Radiance color contacts. My favorite color is Eden (for blue or grey eyes). Sunrise and autumn colors look very interesting over hazel eyes.

Color contact lenses to change your color compleatly

To change the color of brown eyes dramatically you will need opaque lenses. Best choices are Acuvue 2 Colors opaque, Freshlook Colorblends or Illusions by Ciba Vision

Best colors for women with dark eyes and dark hair are Freshlook Colorblends Sapphire or Amethyst. The change will be dramatic, nobody will miss your new look.

If you have blue or grey eyes, but want to change your color to something completely different, go for honey color contacts. These lenses will make your appear warmer, and you can reinforce the effect by make up in natural colors, with a warm color lipstick.

Safety rules for color contact lens

If you already wear contact lenses to improve your eye sight, you know how to put them in and how to care for them properly. If you only want cosmetic color contacts, ask your doctor about wearing them safely.

Most important rule is that color contact lenses block oxygen supply to your eyes more then clear prescription contacts. In fact the color part doesn't let any oxygen through. This means that for the health of your eyes you shouldn't wear your color lenses for longer then 6-8 hours a day. And you should never sleep in them.

Color contacts can transform your face better than any make up. And wearing one color today and another tomorrow is a great fun for adventures girls.
