Everyone can appreciate a beautiful pair of eyes. But why do we find green eyes to be so ethereal?
Why are green eyes special? Whether you’re a green eye enthusiast or one of the lucky few who have a natural green hue, we have a bunch of cool facts about green eyes.
To get natural-looking green eyes, take a look at our emerald green contact lenses.
Why are green eyes so special?
One part of why people are obsessing over green eyes is their rarity. Being unique is a large part of being considered beautiful. Green eye owners can celebrate their unique eye colour knowing that they make up around 2% of the world’s population (compared to brown eyes at around 50%).
Another part of the appeal is attraction. There have been countless surveys conducted all over the world where green eyes come out on top (when compared with other eye colours).
Green eyes are often associated with mystery. Traits that can be associated with green-eyed-folk include a connection to nature, passion, positivity, and creativity. Green is also the colour of jealousy. So look out this enviable eye colour.
Contrast is also a part of the equation. Green eyes will naturally pop with any skin tone. This contrast with your face will make your eye colour noticeable and that is always a good thing.

Green Contact Lenses for Brown Eyes
There is no question that brown eyes are beautiful. However, we find that a lot of brown-eyed-beauties want to play around with a green colour. You do you!
Here are some tips for people looking for green contacts to cover their brown eyes:
- Choose an opaque lens if you want to completely conceal your eye colour
- Choose a transparent tint to blend the colour with your natural brown
- If you have dark brown eyes - go for a bold, bright opaque colour
- If you have lighter coloured eyes you can play around with hazels and honey, or even choose a tinted blue to blend with your brown
The main point is to have fun!
