Style Factors To Consider When Selecting Colored Contacts

Contacts aren't just about improving your vision; they also give you more control over what your eyes look like. The color of your contacts is your choice, but consider the following features when selecting it:

Your Hair: Carefully-chosen contact colors can help bring out your hair color. If you have light blonde, brown, golden-brown or auburn hair, go with green, hazel or light brown contacts. If your hair is blue, black, strawberry blonde or dirty blonde, you should choose blue or violet lenses.

Your Skin Tone: "Warm" skin tones, such as yellow or pink undertones, go well with green, hazel, or light brown contacts, while "cool" skin tones, such as blue undertones, go well with violet or blue ones.

Newer contact lenses don't limit themselves to solid colors, and can combine up to three colors into one lens. This helps the contacts to fit more naturally into your original eye pattern, and makes the new color look deeper and more authentic.

In general, look for contact lenses that will modify the original colors of your eyes rather than opaque lenses that change them completely. Opaque lenses block light from entering your pupils, making it harder to see. They also tend to look less natural.

Air Optix Colors offers comfortable lenses in 9 different 3-in-1 color combinations, including Sterling Gray, Gemstone Green, Honey, Pure Hazel, and Brilliant Blue. These lenses are highly permeable, maximizing oxygen flow and eye health.
