Blue Color Contacts - How to Choose the Best Ones

Aug 17, 2007
Thinking of getting blue color contacts? From the hundreds of blue lenses currently on the market, some can make your eyes really stunning while others are a profound disappointment. Discover how to find the blues that would work best for your eyes.

Bright blue color lenses

Most people who try blue contacts want to have bright, vivid color. However, you should bear in mind that real human eyes are never too bright. So lenses that offer a stunning, vivid blue might be a bit too bright to be mistaken for your true color. Overbrightness is particularly noticeable outdoors, on a sunny day. On the other hand, bright lenses can be excellent for an evening party.

Freshlook Colorblends in True Sapphire is the way to go if you want a really bright blue. Colorblends also has just "blue", which is nice, but doesn't look anywhere near as bright. True Sapphire is best suited for people with medium to dark hair and complexions. If you are a fair blond or redhead, you would be better of with a lighter blue.

Best blue color contacts for light eyes

When it comes to color contact lenses people with light eyes are lucky - they can wear opaque lenses as well as partially transparent enhancers.

If your eyes are already blue or blue-gray and you want to make the color brighter - blue enhancement color lenses are your best option. You can get a very good result from Acuvue 2 Color Enhancers in Ocean blue (bright blue) or Aqua (blue-green, natural looking effect). Durasoft 2 Colors for light eyes in Sky Blue is also a good option - it is not as bright as Acuvue, but it creates a very natural soft effect.

If your eyes and skin are very light, enhancement color lenses might not only make your color brighter, but also make your eyes appear darker. If this is not what you want, choose opaque light blue lenses. Illusions by Ciba Vision in Soft Blue work very well as light blue contacts.

Favorite blue lenses for dark eyes

If you have dark eyes, you have to use opaque color contacts. Enhancement lenses will not make any difference the appearance of your eyes. Freshlook Colorblends in True Sapphire mentioned above are great if you want really bright blue eyes.

For a more subtle look, try Durasoft 2 Opaque Colors - it creates a light blue color with a slight tint of violet. Durasoft 2 Colorblends is another option - on blue eyes they produce a very deep color. Durasoft 2 Colorblends is most suitable for people whose eyes are naturally very dark. Illusion in Deep Blue also works well on dark eyes.

Which blue contact lenses are healthy and most comfortable?

All lenses mentioned above are comfortable, natural looking blue contacts. One thing you should know, though, is that these contacts have different replacement schedules. Acuvue 2 Colors are 2-week disposable color lenses, Freshlook Colorblends are monthly disposables, and all Durasoft and Illusions color contacts are for a year.

From the health point of view, disposable lenses are better - especially if you plan to wear your color contacts every day. If you want to wear color lenses only as an occasional treat, however, then a pair of Durasoft 2 Colors or Illusions would serve your purposes best.
