Cool toned skin
If your skin tone is fair, then you should go for shades of blue and gray as it will complement your undertone. Generally, bright colors are recommended for people with fair complexions, so colors such as amethyst, turquoise and aqua are perfect.
Medium toned skin
Medium skin tones range from a light olive complexion to light brown or honey. These skin tones give more flexibility in color choices for contact lenses. The best colors that’ll suit on people with medium skin tones are- brown, hazel and honey to green, grey and even violet.
Warm toned skin
Indian skin tones have natural browns and beautiful honey hues that are most desired by people in western countries. They pay large sums of money to get a fake spray tan to get a skin tone as ours, so we should be proud of our stunning bronze goddess skin.
