Did you know that as many as 79% of all the people in the world have brown eyes? While it might be the most common eye color out there, that doesn't mean that all brown eyes are the same! From pale amber to rich chocolate tones, there are lots of different shades, and with the magic of contact lenses, all of them are within reach, no matter what your natural eye color!
Brown contact lenses are available in a wide variety of styles, including both "plano," or purely cosmetic lenses, and those that offer prescription vision correction.
There are naturalistic styles that are almost impossible to tell from the real thing, and there are over-the-top ornamental lenses perfect for costuming and cosplay, so no matter what look you're trying to create, there are lenses that will help get you there!
A pair of brown contact lenses are a fantastic way to change up your look, and with subtle, natural-looking styles, no one will even guess that you are wearing them! Brown contacts work well with just about every natural eye color. You can choose between largely opaque, dark brown contacts that are great at creating rich, deep hues, or more translucent options that simply layer shades of brown over your natural color to augment your look. There are even options that add brown to only parts of your eye, such as a ring around the iris that serves to highlight your natural color.
Keep in mind that even highly pigmented lenses cover only the iris, not the pupil, of your eye, so they should not limit your vision, only change your look!
If you are looking for something that's a bit more eye-catching, there are options for you as well! These styles tend to be available in plano rather than prescription lenses, but you'll still find a wide range of options. There are light brown contacts that seem to glow with golden glitter, brown mixed with mossy green or vivid purple, even rusty brown cat-eye lenses.
These styles are ideal for creating cosplay characters, designing unique makeup looks, or for use in costuming projects. Some of these styles may be opaque, which provides even more vivid color, but may impact your vision somewhat depending on the style that you choose. Make sure to try them on before their big debut!
When choosing your brown contacts, different styles will give you different effects. For example, if you have naturally pale eyes, switching to a dark brown lens will be a very striking change. Check out some ideas for how to make the most of your brown contact lenses!
Looking for brown lenses that will also provide you with prescription vision correction? These lenses are less opaque than plano lenses so the curvature of the lens isn't affected by the coloration, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style for function. Here are a few looks you can achieve with prescription lenses!
Bold and Tawny Styles with dense, light-colored pigments make a striking statement against dark colored natural eyes and warm skin tones. Check out options like the MISLENS Russian Brown Colored Contact Lenses to achieve this look.
Subtle Shades With just a hint of brown, lenses like the MISLENS Ocean Brown Colored Contact Lenses can warm up dark eyes or add layers of subtle interest to blue or green. These are subtle enough to swap in or out on a daily basis to suit your mood or even your outfit!
Spice it up with Sparkle Just because your lenses are prescription doesn't mean they have to be boring! If you're looking for lenses that will add a little something extra, look for those with metallic hues, like the MISLENS Gold Brown Colored Contact Lenses.
Keep in mind that any time you order prescription lenses from Myeyebb, we will verify your prescription with your eye care provider before shipping out your order, so make sure you provide all the necessary information and order with plenty of time for us to complete that process. That will help avoid delays in providing your new lenses!
If you don't need to worry about prescription vision correction, then the sky's the limit with plano lenses! These lenses are purely cosmetic and include wild looks like cat-eye lenses and other opaque options that can't be created in prescription styles. Here are a few popular ways to wear brown plano lenses.
Partial Coverage One popular trend with brown lenses is to opt for styles that add brown pigment to only part of your iris, adding subtle interest to your natural eye color. The MISLENS Highlight lenses are an excellent example. With just a crescent of pigment, they're a great way to provide bold interest to dark eyes. For lighter eyes, try the MISLENS NUQI Brown Colored Contact Lenses, which creates a darker circle around the iris to make your natural color really pop.
Jewel Tones Exotic jewels might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you hear "brown," but lenses that pair rich, vibrant colors with shades of gold and copper are among the most popular. For a literal take on the jewel look, try out the faceted MISLENS Brown lenses, which give your eyes the subtle shimmer of expertly cut precious stones, or capture the inner fire of opal with MISLENS Opal Brown lenses, which use advanced patterning techniques to recreate the multicolored flares found in these gemstones.
Feline Fine While you can of course opt for literal cat eye lenses, like the MISLENS Cat Eye in reddish-brown, you can also capture this look in a more metaphorical sense by choosing lenses with vibrant metallic tones. The MISLENS Wildcat lenses are a perfect example. The densely pigmented lenses are perfect for transforming both light and dark eyes into a feline gold reminiscent of a lion on the savannah.
Whether you choose prescription lenses or plano styles, when it comes to brown eye contacts, you'll find just the right lenses to create your desired look here at Myeyebb.
Still have a few questions about brown contacts? Here are some of the answers you might be looking for!
Absolutely! Colored contacts are just as safe to wear as standard prescription lenses, provided, of course, they come from a reputable and licensed manufacturer. Here at Myeyebb, we strive to meet or exceed all relevant regulations so you can be confident in every pair of lenses you buy.
It depends a bit on the style you choose, but generally the answer is no. Most brown lenses aren't opaque, and even those that are highly pigmented leave the pupil of the eye clear so your vision shouldn't be impacted. Of course, it's always a good idea to try your lenses on and learn how they affect you before you plan their big debut.
Naturalistic colors like brown tend to be somewhat tricky to find. Some optometrists offer brown prescription lenses, but their options tend to be quite limited as to color and patterning. On the other end of the spectrum, costume shops often focus on wilder looking special effects lenses. That's where Myeyebb comes in. If you're looking for options for brown lenses, whether prescription or plano, you'll find plenty right here! With free shipping worldwide on most orders, you have access to hundreds of different styles, right at your fingertips.
Yes indeed! The final effect of any colored lens depends on how opaque the printed pigments are, their arrangement on the lens, and, of course, the natural color of your eyes. A translucent lens on dark eyes may not have a strong impact, but a highly pigmented lens will, regardless of how light the color is. In fact, lenses with coppery or golden tones tend to show up quite well on dark eyes as these lighter pigments seem to glow against your natural color.
This depends a bit on the type of contacts you've chosen. Prescription lenses tend to be slightly more expensive due to the precision with which they must be crafted, and the extra steps involved in verifying your prescription. However, the highest-end lenses, as far as price is concerned, are usually special effects plano lenses, like full coverage or "scleral" lenses. Most brown lenses fall somewhere in the middle, in the $15-20 (USD) range.
Again, this will depend on the type of lens you choose. Some are designed for daily, weekly, or monthly wear, and it's important to know which is which and not over-wear your lenses. Lenses that are worn for too long are subject to protein build up, which makes them less breathable, more uncomfortable to wear, and much more likely to harbor harmful bacteria that can damage your eyes. Pay attention to the style of lens you've ordered and make sure to discard them when their lifetime is up.
