Undoubtedly coloured lenses are a big hit among brides-to-be who wear glasses and why not. Well, nobody would want to wear glasses on her big day as that would hide the gorgeous eye makeup. Also, wearing glasses can affect your wedding photographs due to reflection. However, there are some brides who wear colored contact lenses just to enhance their eyes for their special day and not because they have vision problems.

Adhere by this guide to choose the right coloured lenses for your wedding day:
Types of Coloured Lenses For Brides
Since the iris area is made up of colourful shapes and lines, some colour lenses feature a series of tiny coloured dots and radially arranged coloured lines and shapes to help the lenses look more natural on the eye. Note the types of colored lenses you can opt for:
1. Visibility Tint
This type of lens generally has a very minor colour tint and often does not change the color of your eyes.
2. Enhancement Tint
As the name suggests, an enhancement tint is meant to enhance the natural colour of your eyes. Coloured contacts with this type of tint usually are best for people who have light-coloured eyes and want to make their eye colour more intense.
3. Opaque Tint
These are non-transparent lenses that can change your eye colour completely. If you have dark eyes, you will need this type of coloured contact lenses to change your eye colour.
Coloured lenses with opaque tints come in a wide variety of colours, including hazel, green, blue, violet, amethyst, brown and grey and are easily available in the market.
Choosing The Right Coloured Contact Lenses For Wedding Day
There are numerous factors on the basis of which you should pick your lenses colour including your hair colour and skin tone. You can even choose your lens color based on the kind of look you want to achieve — subtle and natural-looking or dramatic and daring.

Colored Lenses For Light Eyes
If you want to change your appearance in a more subtle way, go for an enhancement tint that will help define the edges of your iris and deepen your natural colour.
If you want a dramatic new look that everyone notices immediately, choosing a warm-toned contact lens such as light brown may be a good option.
Coloured Lenses For Dark Eyes
Opaque coloured tints are the best choice if you have dark eyes. For a natural-looking change, try a lighter honey brown or hazel coloured lens.
But if you really want to stand out from the crowd, opt for contact lenses in vivid colours, such as blue, green or violet.
Your pick can further depend on the type of skin tone you have:
Coloured Contact Lenses For Fair Skin Tone
If you have fair skin, chances are that any colored contact lens will look great on you. Colored contact lenses in shades of blue and grey will give you a classy look.

Colored Contact Lenses For Tanned/Medium Skin Tone
Tanned people usually choose hazel, green, honey, grey or dark blue colored lenses.
Coloured Contact Lenses For Dusky Skin Tone
Warm colors usually work best on dusky and dark skin tones. Smoky colors, too, are seductive and sexy. Stay away from loud colors like pink or aqua as they won’t compliment your look.

How To Take Care Of Your Coloured Lenses While Applying Makeup
Make sure you inform your makeup artist that you are going to wear contact lenses for your wedding day. Also, it is recommended to wear the lenses before applying makeup. Also, make sure that you don’t use oil-based mascara as it doesn’t work well with contact lenses and could cause blurry vision or uncomfortable eyes. Another thing to make sure is that your MUA doesn’t put those heavy fake eyelashes as they could make your eyes uncomfortable.
