Colored contact lenses offer a subtle yet effective way to transform your appearance. You can subtly enhance the brightness of your iris or even change its color entirely.

👻 For instance, for special occasions like theme parties or Halloween, you can go for dramatic options like red contacts for a vampire look or white contacts for a zombie costume.

However, in this discussion, we'll focus on natural-looking colored contacts that enhance your appearance and complement your personality. To start, let's explore 3 types of colored contacts that you can consider for your eyes.

1. Visible tinted contact lenses have no special effect on your eyes.

Visible tinted lenses are the standard lenses people use. They have light green or blue hues just for visibility purposes. Their faint color does not have any special effect on your eyes.

2. Enhancement tinted contact lenses blend well with your natural eye color.

Enhancement tinted lenses are the most used natural colored contacts. They feature solid, translucent colors that enhance the beauty of your natural iris. If you simply want to make your eyes appear more vibrant, these are the perfect contacts for you.

But, these are better for light-colored eyes. For darker eyes? Not so much.

3. Opaque tinted contact lenses work perfectly on darker eyes.

If you're looking to change your eye color significantly, these non-transparent lenses are the ideal choice. For those with darker eyes, opaque tinted contacts work perfectly.

Special effects contact lenses take this transformation to an even more extreme level.

How Can You Make Coloured Contacts Look Natural?

Here are some insider tips for making your colored contacts look natural.

1. Choose lenses based on your natural eye color.

People with light blue eyes have many choices for colored contacts. Both enhancement and opaque lenses work on blue eyes.

For example, violet or grey-tinted lenses can change your blue eyes while keeping them bright. These colors also go well with lighter skin and eyelashes.

Changing light green eyes to a different shade, like blue or grey, is simple with enhancement-tinted lenses.

However, dark green eyes may not change much with light-tinted contacts. To enhance dark green eyes like emerald eyes, you can use caramel-brown lenses or hazel enhancement tints, adding some flair while keeping their natural color.

If you have hazel eyes or light brown eyes, enhancement-tinted lenses are a great option.

Green-tinted contacts can intensify hazel eyes, making them appear deeper emerald. Similarly, if you have light brown eyes and want a hazel effect, green-tinted lenses can help achieve that look.

Dark brown eyes can be challenging to change naturally, so opaque-colored lenses are essential. Instead of flat colors, consider tonal contact lenses.

For example, a light brown opaque lens with hints of amber can add depth while maintaining a natural look. If your eyes are dark, go for natural shades like honey or deep amber, which are lighter than dark brown yet still appear natural.

2. Choose lenses with a limbal ring in a matching color family.

If you like the limbal ring effect, go for lenses with a limbal ring that matches the color family. Mismatched color blending can cause an unnatural contrast.

3. Choose muted shades for a realistic appearance.

Overly bold colors can make contacts look fake. Muted shades make it easier to finish a natural look.

4. Get a prescription to ensure the lenses fit well.

Lenses that are too big or too small can look unnatural.

Before you buy colored contact lenses, go for an optometrist or ophthalmologist to have an eye examination and obtain a prescription for accurate size specifications, including diameter, graphic diameter, and base curve.


Consider your wardrobe, skin tone, hair color, hairstyle, and everyday outfits to find a color that suits you best. This will help you pick the most natural looking colored contacts that complement your eyes and personality.

Always ensure you have a valid prescription from an eye doctor before selecting any contact lenses. Proper fitting is essential for all types of lenses.
