Back in the days, bridal makeup was mostly about applying a base almost two shades lighter than your skin tone, adding a red lipstick, and adoring eyes with kohl. The time has changed, and now there is a series of things that you do to achieve that classy bridal look.
This also includes wearing contact lenses to make your eyes look extra gorgeous. However, picking a perfect shade of the lenses can turn out to be tricky. While you put extra emphasis on deciding the shade of your foundation, eye shadow, and lipstick, there is no way you should not decide the hue of your eyes for your wedding day.

For Fair Complexion
If the colour of your eyes are black and you are looking for something that may look give you that dramatic look, grey contact lenses can be an option. This will match your original eye tone, and will also complement prominent eye makeup done using red, gold, black, grey, etc.
Light blue has to be one of the most used contact lenses. it gives that dreamy look, that most people want to achieve on their big day. If you have a light complexion, the light blue contact lenses will look great on you. No matter if you are going for a subtle or dramatic appearance, a pair of light blue contact lenses will look amazing on you.
If you are blessed with a medium skin tone, most colours are likely to suit you. But since you want to look nothing less than perfect on your D-day, we suggest you go for dark blue contact lenses.

Clubbing hazel eyes with simple light makeup can never go wrong. Use more blush pink and orange tones to look like a Goddess.
If you have a beautiful dark complexion (the art of applying makeup on dusky skin), you can play around with so many options. However, to bring out that sensuous eye appearance, stick to warm colours. One of them can be yellow. Along with golden makeup, the yellow contact lenses will help you to ooze oomph.
