Coloured contact lenses are the latest fashion accessory these days, especially among the young. A new pair of colour contact lenses can change your entire appearance. It can make you go from drab and boring to sleek and sexy in a matter of seconds. This is possibly the quickest makeover you will experience. But the makeover can be successful only if you are careful in selecting a colour that works for your skin tone and face structure.

Choosing the best colour contact lenses can be an interesting albeit a bit difficult exercise. For first time users, it is important that they analyse their complexion and bone structure as well as consider the purpose or occasion for which they would like to use coloured contact lenses before making a selection.

Skin Tone/Complexion

One of the primary considerations while making a selection is your skin tone. If you are dusky or have a dark complexion, warm colours like Hazel and Honey really enhance your appearance. However, if you want to go for a little different look than you should consider buying grey or aqua blue coloured contact lenses. If you have a wheatish or tanned skin, you can consider buying Honey coloured or Hazel coloured lenses or a brighter shade like green or navy blue. And if you are fair skinned then bright shades of blue as well as shades of grey really complement your skin. You can also try colours like turquoise and amethyst.

All Coloured Contact Lenses are available in one-tone, two-tone or three-tone shades. As the term suggests, one-tone has one colour, two-tone blends two shades and three-tone blends three rich shades in a single contact lens. Three tone coloured lenses are the best at creating a natural depth and dimension of the eye and appear the most vibrant. They are also the most expensive of the three. Therefore many first time users prefer to use one-tone or two tone coloured lenses when they first experiment. Once they get comfortable with contact lenses and are able to identify what colours suits them best, they may opt for three tone coloured lenses. Some of the most popular brands of coloured contact lenses are Freshlook Colourblends, Silklens, Aryan and Purecon.


Once the colour has been selected, you need to select the proper lenses. We highly recommend Prebyopic lenses as they also offer UV protection from the sun's harmful rays and outstanding comfort. It is also important to decide whether you want hard lenses or soft lenses. Hard lenses are the most cost effective and can last up to a year whereas soft lenses are offered as daily disposables, bi-weekly disposables, monthly disposables and quarterly disposables.

As you can see there are a variety of options available when it comes to selecting coloured contact lenses. We hope that this article will help you in making the right choice.
