Some people use colored contacts and find that they hate the experience altogether. However, this is probably due to a past experience and not the one that they could have currently. A major difficulty that needed to be overcome with color contacts was the ability to actually cover your old eye color and provide comfort. After all, if you had red eyes from using contact lenses, it defeated the purpose of wearing them in the first place. Thankfully, colored contacts of come a long way since those days. Not only are you able to use soft contacts instead of hard contacts, you can also get a very natural look that completely covers your old eye color. This is very helpful for people who have extremely dark brown eyes.
Unless you're specifically looking for contacts that have theatrical or Halloween like appearances, chances are you do not want to buy contacts that are intended to look natural and have the opposite effect. Of course, these kind of contacts are fun to wear, but if you're not intending those purposes, you do not get what you paid for. Even 10 years ago, colored contacts did in fact color over your eye color but still looked fake. This was because they were one color and did not include any of the features that make an eye color look natural.
Natural colored eyes are in fact not made of one color. The irises typically composed of many shapes, patterns, and colors that work together to make a natural eye color. It took many years before the industry to catch up with these factors, but it has finally made these improvements. In particular, they worked with particular variations of the eye. For example, if you bought green colored contacts 10 years ago, they were a flat color of green. A natural green eye will not be made up of one flat color. Instead, it is made up of various colors that interlocked in a variations of patterns and different colors besides green.
Thank for example of blue eyes. Within a blue eye is usually a dark ring on the outside of the iris. The center may be made of a starburst pattern that is composed of gray and white on the outside of this starburst may be a yellow zigzag pattern. Combining all of these elements together from a distance gives the appearance of a blue eye. However, you may be hard to find any blue color in that eye
specifically. If you want brown colored contacts, you may in fact find the most natural looking ones are composed of concentric circles of yellow, gold, orange, green, and a dark brown ring on the out side. If you're looking for the most natural appearance, you will need to work with variations like these.
