Colored Contact Lenses for Brown Eyes

In my previous articles i have talked about which color contacts were the best for dark eyes. Today i thought i would be more precise and give recommendations for people with brown eyes, as this is the most common eye color in the world. Many of you have probably in the past already tested colored contact lenses for brown eyes and were probably disappointed as the result was not so good. In the past the lenses gave you either a very small change to your eye color or completely changed it making it really unfortunately unnatural!

But now with the developpment of the technology and science, there are some colored contact lenses for brown eyes which give a very nice result, in fact a lot better than in the past! Nevertheless you must consider that creating a lense which could change a brown eye into sky blue and make it look natural is rather difficult, so you cant expect to have something perfect but it will be a lot better than in the past! As i explained in my previous articles, different types of color contacts exist: enhancement and opaque ones. Unfortunately even though enhancement are the best in my opinion they only work well with light eyes and therefore if you have brown eyes enhancement lenses would look almost invisible or would create a very small tint which could clearly not be considered as changing the color of your eye.

Freshlook True SapphireOpaque are those that you need for brown eyes. These lenses are not transparent (only the middle part is so that you can see through it). But dont worry they are not solid color, they give a very nice effect which reflects quite well the human eye color. Nevertheless not all give a natural effect. The best in my opinion is Freshlook ColorBlends by Ciba Vision. They look very realistic as the lenses are in fact a mix of different shades (as for a normal iris). The best looking one if you like blue is the True Sapphire Model. If you prefere Acuvue, i would go for Acuvue 2 Colors Opaque! Hope this will help you! On the left you can see the Freshlook True Sapphire model and below the Acuvue 2 Colors Opaque!
