Thanks to Paris Hilton, baby blue colored contacts are as still popular as ever. Paris wears blue contacts as part of her brand. Her eyes are naturally brown but when she goes in front of the cameras, she wants the sexy blonde blue-eyed look. And she gets it, don’t ya think?
Baby blues are fun, especially paired with a summer tan.
We can’t vouch for the brand Paris Hilton wears, but we can give you some info on a few brands you might want to try. For the best result, choose an opaque lens. Opaque lenses completely cover your natural color.
Brands of Baby Blue Contacts
Freshlook Colorblends is a brand from Ciba Vision that has been around a long time. There are two colors in this line you might want to try, recently introduced a Brilliant Blue, which is more intense than the regular Colorblends blue.
If you want eyes that are lighter, and not so intense, try Sterling Gray. Now, obviously gray is not baby blue so why are we mentioning it?
Freshlook doesn’t officially have a color that is “light” blue but the Sterling Gray gives up the same effect and has been described as a “bluish gray”. So if the lightness aspect of your eyes is more important to you, not so much the blue color, then give the Sterling Gray a try.
Expressions is another brand that has been available for awhile. There are two blue tints, neither of which are considered truly “light” blue, but depending on your coloring and the fit, they might work for you. Try Blue Topaz.
Acuvue 2 Colors
Acuvue 2 Colors is a very popular brand with a couple of blue tints. For dark eyes, Sapphire Blue gets the job done although a little bit bright. You could try the Gray tint to tone down the intense blue and get a more blue-gray effect.
How Long Do They Last?
Freshlook, Expressions and Acuvue 2 Colors are all two-week disposable contacts, meaning you can wear them during the day for two weeks before replacement.
If you don’t wear color contacts every day, like maybe on weekends or for a night off, these contacts can last longer. However, you should always follow the recommendation of you eye doctor when it comes to replacement schedule and care.
These contacts are also not designed for sleeping so they should be removed at night, cleaned and stored properly after each use.
