Unlike clear contact lens, colored lenses can change your look completely in seconds (which explains its HUGE popularity all over the world!) I personally *love* them and my favorite ones are Freshlook Colorblends, Geo Angel and Tri-Color Lenses.
Types of Color Contacts
* Enhancement Lenses: This type of lenses are made of semi-transparent material that will blend with your natural eye color to enhance your eyes. Some of them, like Freshlook’s Colorblends and Geo’s Tri-Color Lenses, have different colors blended together to give the most natural look. You can choose a color similar to your natural eye color or you can go with something totally different.
* Opaque Lenses: This type of lenses are made with opaque material to change your eye color dramatically and Paris Hilton used to wear this too (she uses Natural touch in Baby Blue to change her naturally brown eyes blue). Opaque lenses normally come in solid colors like green, gray, blue and brown etc. If you have dark eyes and want to change your eye color completely, this will probably be your best bet.
* Circle Lens:Unlike the other two, these have a black rim on the outside of your iris (hence the name circle) to make your eyes appear bigger and brighter. They are currently the “it” thing in Asia and they come in a variety of colors like black, brown, gray, violet, blue and green. They will give the most dramatic effect and get you all the attention you deserve.
How To Choose A Color That Is Right For You
When choosing the color, you may want to consider your ethnicity, natural eye color, natural skin tone and the look you are going for. Obviously, if you are Caucasian, blue, green, gray, brown and hazel will look natural on you whereas brown is definitely the most natural and fool-proof color for everyone.
If you are looking for something a little more dramatic, bright colors like violet or aqua would be perfect. These colors also tend to stand out more on those with darker skin tones.
Another thing to consider when choosing your color contacts is how you wear your eye makeup.
Just remember the same pair of contacts can look very different on different people – even two people with the same hair color, eye color and skin tone. I highly recommend you to try out different colors to find your perfect match.
