We’ve always known Jennifer Aniston for her bright blue eyes, but did you know she’s an avid user of blue coloured contacts? It’s no surprise – they complement her blonde hair perfectly.

2. Michelle Keegan

Michelle Keegan, ex Corrie Star, is another who’s jumped on the blue contact lenses hype. As you can see in this image, choosing to go for a set of blue lenses - away from her natural shade of brown. 

3. Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton is one of the most well-known users of coloured contacts. In fact, she uses them that often – people still believe that her natural eye colour is brown.

Word on the street is, her coloured contacts are custom made for her... somewhere in the region of £300-£400!
