If you are wondering about colored contact lenses for black people, take inspiration from these photos of celebrity black women with light eyes, specifically Rihanna, Kandyse McClure, Tami Roman, and Nicole Murphy … all who have naturally light eyes. Also look at African American celebs like Naomi Campbell and Aaliyah with colored lenses.
These black women with blue, green, and honey brown eyes will help give you ideas on whether you want to get colored contacts, and what color you might be interested in. Be aware that even though it is more rare, blue eyes naturally occur even in dark black skinned African-descent people. It is estimated that 1 in 42,000 pure African people have natural blue eyes because of the Waardenburg gene mutation.
