10 Most Realistic Pairs of Colored Contacts for Dark Eyes

Jun 03,2024 | Unicoeye® | Colored Contact Lenses

10 natural contact lenses

When you have naturally dark eyes, finding a good pair of colored contacts can be a challenge. Many pairs don’t offer full coverage or are simply too transparent to transform your eye color the way they should, and you end up with an unnatural-looking result. For everyday wear, a more realistic look is usually the goal (unless you have a particularly out-of-this-world personal style!), so having darker eyes can be a source of frustration. If this sounds like a struggle you face, don’t worry! We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite colored contacts that will completely and realistically transform anyone’s natural eye color, light or dark.

 

Understanding What Works

Colored contacts work by overlaying pigment on the corneas to achieve their visual effect. Many varieties that aim for realism have color deposited in a pointillism-esque style on the iris, which allows the lens color to blend with the natural color underneath. On the other hand, vibrant cosplay contacts often have solid colors and hard edges that don’t look real by any stretch of the imagination. The trick for people with dark eyes is to find lenses that fall somewhere in between these categories—that is, lenses with densely packed color that’s still soft and diffuse enough to look convincing. This will get you the most ideal result, with your natural iris being camouflaged rather than just having a barely-there filter over it.
