Even If You Have Dark Brown Eyes, Brown Contact Lenses Can Enhance Your Look

If you're wondering whether you can benefit from using brown contact lenses, the short answer is Yes. However, you will need to select lenses with higher opaqueness to allow the color to be visible through your iris. On the other hand, lenses with less opacity will provide a look more like your natural eye color.

Using colored contact lenses enables you to have the eye color of your choice, which is the most significant benefit for many people. Over half of all people have brown eyes, so it is reassuring that most colored contact lenses are designed to suit brown eyes.

However, you must bear in mind that not every shade of contact lens will suit your eyes' natural color. For instance, merely choosing a pair of violet-colored lenses doesn't mean you'll get dark and sultry-looking eyes.

Hopefully, the following guide will help you stay on track when choosing your contact lenses' type and color.

Considerations When Choosing Colored Contact Lenses

Similar to choosing your perfect lipstick, clothing, or accessories, selecting your ideal eye color is crucial to achieving the perfect look. Your perfect eye color will depend on a couple of things; your natural eye color and contact lenses' opacity.

Your contact lens selection is relatively straightforward if you have light-colored eyes, as your irises will not have the same mottled effect as dark ones. For a more subtle look, but one that still flatters, using enhancement contacts will give you a muted boost of color.

Indeed, enhancing contacts allow you to create depth and definition for lighter irises. However, if you want to create a dark-brown shade, you will need the thicker limbal rings of circular lenses. That's because most darker brown contact lenses have more pigment on the lens's border. Therefore, the middles are relatively translucent, and in some cases, they are transparent.

Using Blue Contact Lenses with Brown Eyes

So long as your blue contact lenses are sufficiently vibrant, they will work with your brown eyes. But, of course, the shade of blue you can achieve comes down to the shade used and the lens. At Coleyes, we offer you a range of color vibrancy that's second to none, and you can browse our range to get your ideal color match.

The Best Colored Contact Lenses For Brown Eyes

You can achieve incredible color matches for your brown eyes with gray, blue, or green colored contact lenses.

Gray Contact Lenses

Using a gray contact lens with your brown eyes will allow you to achieve a more subtle enhancement. In addition, gray is a safe choice as it tends to look good regardless of the shade of brown your eyes are. Moreover, gray matches pretty much every type of hair color and skin tone.

Due to the popularity of gray contact lenses, they come in a wide range of options. For instance, you can choose the opacity type, including tinted, transparent, or opaque. Also, there is a range of gray tonalities, with two, three, and four tone options. In addition, gray contact lenses are available in daily, bi-weekly, monthly, or yearly models.

With so much choice, it can be challenging to decide what is best for your brown eyes. Our general advice is to opt for a mid to high-opacity lens with at least three tones.

Blue Contact Lenses

If you want to transform your natural brown eyes and give them a baby blue effect, you can.

Of course, the impact you can achieve will depend upon the darkness of your natural iris. Here are a few considerations:

  • With dark brown eyes, a lighter shade of blue contact lenses will give your eyes a dark blue-brown appearance.
  • For lighter brown eyes, bright blue-colored contact lenses will provide a sea blue look to your eyes.
  • If you want to achieve a look that perfectly matches your bright red lips, baby blue contacts on naturally light brown eyes are the way to go.

Green Contact Lenses

Green contact lenses are another popular choice for people with brown eyes. This color of lens will allow you to achieve a look of allure and mystery.

However, one of the best aspects of using green contact lenses is the natural look you can achieve with brown eyes. This natural look is due to the lens containing specks of beige or yellow, which give a smooth transition, particularly around the center.

Brown Is Beautiful!

Brown eyes certainly are beautiful, and more than half the world's population enjoys their looks. But, of course, sometimes it's nice to have a change, and that's what colored contact lenses allow you to achieve.

Experimenting with different shades and tones of contact lenses is fun and will transform your look. Beiges, hazels, and honey tones will give your eyes a lighter look without looking overly made-up. These lenses are perfect for achieving a transformation but keeping it subtle.

But why not let the beauty of your brown eyes shine through? You can maximize your natural eye color and add definition with a limbal ring in circular contact lenses. Alternatively, tri-color lenses will give your natural color a hint of texture and a deeper look. These effects can make your eyes look larger and have a doll-like appearance.

Regardless of the type, shade, and tone of the contact lenses you choose, try to match the appearance with your personality. This means that your eye look should complement your skin, hair, makeup, and outfit.

Consider your contact lenses as part of your wardrobe, and you can have several unique and stunning looks. What's for sure is you'll have great fun experimenting and finding your ideal eye styles.
