When it comes to colored contacts coverage there is a range of options to choose from, depending on the final look you are hoping to achieve. Just like choosing a design, the decision for which type of coverage you would like can totally change your look. For example, if you are creating a costume or cosplay you are likely to want full coverage to help you completely transform into your character. Alternatively, if you are searching for a natural switch, leaving part of your eye color visible can enhance the finished look.
These aren’t the only things to consider when thinking about color coverage. Your eye color will play a big part in how the color of the contact lenses interacts with your natural iris tone. Think of it in terms of the principles or art or mixing paints and you will soon realise that covering a darker eye color is more challenging than finding colored contacts for light eyes.
There are three main types of color coverage to consider when shopping with Coloured Contacts. Each of our products has been rated using our Lens Transparency Guide so you can choose the style that is right for you.
Our Full Color styles offer optimum coverage. These are generally costume contacts lenses that will fully cover your iris with color. The vibrant tones and highly-saturated pigmentation will help you to switch up your eye color in an instant. From creepy zombies to funky cosplay styles, if you can imagine the creature or ghoul, we probably have the different eye color contacts to match!
These tend to be the best colored contacts for dark eyes. The lenses offer a strong color that is designed to look unnatural. Many of our affiliates have successfully covered their natural eye colors with these lenses so be sure to check out our gallery to get a true picture of how the lenses may look. Even light colors such as white and yellow can be successful in covering dark brown eyes.
Next on the scale are the Vibrant Color styles. These tend to be natural styles which offer a reasonable amount of coverage plus a bright color change. The difference between vibrant natural lenses and full color costume lenses is that costume lenses are often in a single block of color whereas natural eyes have multiple tones. Green colored contacts, for example, wouldn’t look realistic if they were in a single color. To get a natural green tone, several shades have been blended together creating the fresh sparkle that comes with our vibrant color styles.
The coverage will vary depending on your eye color but vibrant lenses are ideal color contacts for light eyes. If you are looking for natural color contact lenses for dark brown eyes then we suggest sticking to the vibrant range too, and choosing darker color lenses such as tri tone styles. The multiple tones found in this range will blend with your natural eye color to give you a new shade.
The final coverage on the scale is enhancing colored contacts. The styles in this range tend to be natural styles but the difference from the vibrant color lenses is that they sometimes have areas of transparency which allow your natural color to show through. This means enhancing lenses are the perfect choice for adding subtle color flecks to your iris. Even this small change can totally change how your eyes look and can bring back your sparkle.
A popular use for our enhancing styles is as colored contacts for dark eyes. While they do not completely cover your natural iris, many customers and affiliates use tones such as hazel and green to lighten their color in a subtle yet noticeable way. This color tint can add the detailing to your eyes that you have been searching for.
Choosing colored contacts for brown eyes from an online store can feel like a risk when it comes to color coverage. After all, dark brown eyes do present a challenge for contact lens manufacturers, but with the right color pigmentation and detailing you can achieve a natural style that will temporarily hide your dark eye color.

When it comes to colored contact lenses for light eyes it is easy to think that every shade and coverage of contact lenses will cover your light eye color but there is one thing to consider. Sometimes if the color of contact lens you are choosing is too close to your natural eye color, it won’t seem as vibrant once it is in your eyes. The colors blend together rather than creating a vibrant contrast. Generally, the lenses from all three coverage types will give good coverage to lighter eye colors.
With all the types of Colored Contacts coverage, it is easy to achieve the look you would like. From a realistic everyday natural lens to an enhancing cosplay eye to a spooky zombie style; by following this guide you will find it easier to reach your dream look. Results will vary depending on your natural eye color, so always make sure to consider this when you are choosing your colored contact lenses.
