If you are like me, then you have perhaps crossed by an eye care shop and took a glance at the beautiful coloured contact lens that were showcased and thought of trying it more than a couple of times. But then if you are still like me, you probably rid yourself of that thought because you had no idea what colour you would even choose.
So here are few tips that will help you choose a coloured contact lens that suits your hair and skin colour.
Choosing based on Skin Colour
If you have a fair skin tone the coloured contact lens that you choose should be a colour that has a cold tone, just like your skin. Shades of Blue and Gray are recommended. That said, any bright colours or contact lenses that have a shine will also suit your skin tone.
Example colours : Turquoise, Amethyst, Acqua, Stone Gray, Blue, Brilliant Blue and Sterling Gray
Suggested Coloured Contact Lens: Air Optix (Brilliant Blue)
If you have a skin tone that is neither too fair nor too dark, than you are an olive. For olives the best type of coloured contact lens are those that glow and have brighter shades. That said, brighter shades of blues and grays are not recommended. Greens and Olives go well with your skin tone and most importantly, the colour of your contact lens should be a a bit different shade than your make up.
Example Colours : Honey, Green , Gemstone Green, Peridot Green, Pure Hazel and Hazel
Suggest Coloured Contact Lens : Bausch & Lomb Lacelle Jewel ( Peridot Green)
If you have a dark or dusky complexion you are open to different types of colours based on what your desired effect is. As a rule of thumb, warm colours work best with your skin tone. If you want something that is sexy, go for a dark amethyst or any colour with the same hues. If you want to make yourself look seductive than go for a smoky colour. If you want a head turner, go for autumn coloured contact lens. But in general stay away from bright and cool colours.
Example Colours: Amethyst, Smokey Gray, Honey, Autumn, Amber Brown and Black
Suggested Coloured Contact Lens: Blincon CC Plusierus (Romance ChaCha)
Choosing based on Hair Colour
If you have black hair then your coloured contact choices are mostly cool colours such as grey blue and violet.
Example Colours: Violet, Ice Blue, Amethyst, Sterling Grey and Brilliant Blue
Suggested Coloured Contact Lens: Bausch & Lomb Lacelle Jewl (Amethyst Violet)
If you have brown or blonde hair then your coloured contact choices are mostly warm colours.
Example Colours: Honey, Brown, Green, and Hazel.
