How to Choose Colored contact lenses


									How to Choose Colored contact lenses
                                       The first part of this hub became quite popular in the comments section. In
                                       the past 2 years I have given many people my advice with regard to
                                       coloured contact lenses and which colour would suit them and which
                                       colour would not. The most amount of problems in choosing fashion or
                                       cosmetic contact lenses are faced by those who want to wear contacts for
                                       the first time in their lives. I remember the first pair of lenses I got back in
                                       2006. They were a beautiful shade of bright green and till this day remain
                                       my favourite pair. Had the green not turned out as beautiful as it did
                                       perhaps I would never have continued to wear and experiment with
different coloured contact lenses. This hub is intended to help those first timers how to choose the right colour. I
will include pictures of real people as well as models to help demonstrate how different colour would or might
look when worn.

I tried to explain how lens colours should be chosen for different types of people with different skin tones. Here
I will try to show how different contacts sit on the eyes when worn.

Green Contact lenses

Green contacts are by far my favourite colour when it comes to contacts. There are many different types of
green contacts and it really depends on what type of look you want when choosing a shade of green. Green
contacts come in green, evergreen, emerald green, gemstone green (which is my favourite type) and many other
shades manufactured by different brands. Green eyes look very sexy and gorgeous adding a womanly depth to
the eyes. Green contacts worn with just black kohl around the eyes and layers of extra black mascara gives an
end result of a show stopper like quality.

Shades of Blue contacts

Blue contacts can give various looks. When wearing dark blue contacts it gives the eyes a subtle change if your
natural eye colour is dark brown or black. Such subtle changes look great without giving away what is different
about the look. If your natural eye colour is light then dark blue can look quite gorgeous and mysterious. Dark
eyes are always associated with sexiness and dark blue will give you just that.

Lighter shades of blue like baby blue will give a very doll like look. If you want a cute and girly look then go
for baby blue contacts. If you want to go for a more icy look and add a bit of frost to those warm eyes then go
for pale blue contacts. Although I must add that the best way to add frost to the eyes is by wearing misty grey or
platinum contacts.

Blues for those eyes

Love the Ocean

If you love the ocean and beach then turquoise is the colour for you. Turquoise contacts tend to look great on
almost all skin colours as the colour is neither too dark. Turquoise contacts are the best way to go bright and
give a very happy holiday look. This colour is also perfect when wearing anything white as turquoise eyes go
hand in hand with white clothes.
Grey and Ash contact lenses

                             Looking for a foxy look which can at the same time freeze the nation, go for shades
                             of ash like misty grey by freshlook or platinum by baush & Lomb. Such shades are
                             however very difficult to pull off without looking fake. The right amount of eye
                             makeup is necessary to make contacts with icy tones to look good. Tread carefully
                             when wearing colours like this. However, if you just want to shock them all then go
                             for them.

Remember that misty grey and platinum contacts can look like you are wearing white contacts at times.

Fiery and Warm contacts

Honey is a very warm colour to brighten up the face and yet it has adds a tiger-like look to the face. Honey
contacts look both fierce and warm at the same time. They make the eyes look like they are glowing. Honey
contacts look great on dark skin as together they create a fantastic look of mischief and fierceness. Check out
the photographs of girls wearing honey contacts.

If you just want to give your black eyes a subtle change then you can try brown contacts or hazel. I would
suggest going for hazel lenses rather than brown as brown contacts are a bit too ordinary.
