Color contacts are great, whether you wear enhancement color lenses to
brighten your natural color or opaques to change it completely.
However, you will also need to apply some eye make-up to get the best
effect from your lenses. There are a few eye make-up secrets that will
make your new eyes really stand out.
The shadow colors you will need to use depend on your skin color and
the color of your colored contact lenses.
For women with fair skin
For green color contacts neutral or pale shadow in green or blue-green
varieties are best. If you get blue or turquoise contacts use blue
shadow, but a shade lighter than the color of your contacts. For
amethyst, violet or gray color contacts, lavender shadows work great.
Use gray or brown eyeliner rather than black - it looks more natural
on fair skin. And smooth the line under your eye, so it doesn't look
too sharp. Also, if your color lenses are blue or turquoise, try blue
mascara. It will give your eyes a really deep blue color.
For women with medium skin
With warm, medium-dark skin and green, blue or violet contacts,
neutral shadows like taupe, browns or plums look best. For amethyst or
turquoise color lenses, use dark lavender or plum eye shadow with a
hint of silver across the eyelid.
Dark skin make-up suggestions
Amethyst, sapphire blue and green color lenses are magnificent on
women with dark skin. If you apply bronze shadow in the crease, green
eyes would look very deep. Mauve or deep brown shadows will do a good
job emphasizing your blue or amethyst colored contact lenses. With
aqua or turquoise lenses, try amber shadows across the top eyelid.
No matter what color contacts you wear, they will make your eyes
bright and noticeable. Your eye make-up shouldn't be too bright
though; it shouldn't overpower
