While you can find any colour under the sun when you look for lens colors, narrowing down the infinite selection to the colours that’ll make your eyes pop is a mammoth task.
If you are using coloured eye lenses for the first time or if you are already using them but find they don’t suit you, this expert advice is for you. This article is especially dedicated to people with a dark skin tone.
Why considering your skin tone is crucial when you buy coloured contact lenses?
When you choose your coloured lens, one of the most crucial factors to consider is your skin tone. Eyes contact lenses are a part of your eye makeup. They can either enhance your beauty if worn correctly or make you look like a weirdo if you make the wrong colour lens choice.
Determine your undertone
Regardless of what skin tone you have, your skin undertone will fall under a warm undertone, cool undertone or neutral undertone. And it is vital to know your undertone as well while choosing your makeup.
To determine your undertone, hold a piece of white paper to your face. Placing a stark white piece of paper next to your face can help reveal your undertone.
The white should create a cast of color on your skin. If your face appears pink or blue, it’s a sign you have a cool undertone. If your skin appears yellow, you have a warm undertone. If your skin seems gray, you fall under the neutral undertone category.
In order to help you find the contact lenses hues that’ll flatter your skin tone and undertone, O Lens experts are here for you.
