As we usher in a new year (and a new decade) it feels only right to look back on the year that was.
In a year filled with fashion moments that (almost) broke the internet in 2019 — like Kanye’s new Jesus is King line, Harry Styles’ Style Evolution, or James Charles’ revealing collection of Coachella outfits — it’s time to celebrate the celebs that rocked one fashion trend.
Here is a list of celebs that rocked coloured contact lenses in 2019.
The next time you’re looking for style inspo, these visionary celebs are the ones to watch.
She’s no stranger to the coloured contact trend — we’ve seen Kylie nail it over and over again by transforming her look with dazzling eye colours.
This year, the self-made billionaire went all out for Halloween. She swapped out her natural brown eye colour for some sparkling grey lenses that perfectly accompanied her little mermaid look.
We can’t shout out Kylie without mentioning this iconic look from 2018. She looks stunning in these etherial grey/blue contacts. They contrast amazingly with this warm makeup look. Perfect to try out in Autumn 2020.
It’s no secret that Kpop idols are slaying the beauty industry. Guys and girls alike are striving to look like their favourite idols by copying their hair, clothes, and eyes.
Coloured contact lenses are a Kpop beauty essential. While many idols are gorgeous, no one rocks a coloured contact better than BTS V (Kim Taehyung).
V has the ability to go viral wherever he appears — like at this year’s New Year’s Rockin Eve Concert in NYC — and his fashion icon status is acknowledged by fans around the world.
BTS are known to switch up their hair and eye colours for new music videos and public appearances. Keep your eyes peeled to see what V rocks next.

Golden girl Lupita Nyong’o matched her eye colour to her Oscar statue to promote her film ‘Us’ in 2019.
Lupita popped in a pair of bright gold lenses to freak out late-night host Stephen Colbert after appearing on the red carpet in a pair of blood-red contacts and a matching dress.
The actress nailed a balance of freaky and freaking beautiful while promoting the popular horror film. Her alter-ego in the movie, called Red, kept viewers on the edge of their seat while the actress stunned on the red carpet.
Hopefully in 2020, we get to see Lupita experiment more with coloured contacts.
Out of all the celebrities who changed their eye colour in 2019, this famous makeup artist managed to steal the spotlight — just in time.
Walking the red carpet at the British Fashion Awards in December, Ffrench looked striking in a pair of cat-eye lenses.
This experimental fashion look is the perfect way to finish the year and think about how we can push the envelope in 2020.
No more boring red carpet eye looks! Let’s see what theses game-changing celebs do next.
