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.

Rihanna: Black Woman with Green Eyes

The young beautiful Rihanna has charmed us with her singing and her beauty. Her naturally green eyes often change color slightly depending upon how strong the light is around her.

Green eyes look truly exotic on black women, so if you want to make a statement with eye color, green eye contacts are the way to go.

Tami Roman: Black Woman with Honey Brown Eyes

Sassy Tami Roman makes you do a double-take when you see her naturally honey brown eyes. Honey brown eye colors on black women looks beautiful because the eyes are then sometimes the same color or lighter than the skin. This produces a visually captivating effect to the onlooker, and especially in photos.

If you would like to get Tami Roman's look, try an eye contact that has "light brown" or "honey brown" in the name.

Beautiful Aaliyah from the 1990s wore contact lenses to go from dark brown eyes to medium brown eyes

The gorgeous Nicole Murphy has been sporting light baby blues her entire life. Her combination of black hair and light eyes are a sight to behold, which is why she is so photogenic.

Blue eyes look great on both light and dark skin. If you have naturally dark brown eyes and want to try blue contacts, make sure to try a brand that is made specifically for dark eyes.

Your eye doctor will be able to give you sample colored contacts to try right in the office, and you will have fun playing with different eye colors before you know it.
