If you’ve ever considered wearing coloured contacts to change up your look, have at it. But know this: You’re not fooling anyone. No matter how “realistic” they might appear at first glance, there’s always something just a little... off.
This is especially true for celebrities — thanks to the invention of the Internet, there exists an easily accessible backlog of photos that document your eye colour from one public appearance to another, thereby ruining any chance you might have of convincing anyone that your special, rare bright green eyes are the real deal, Ivanka. The truth hurts.

But that doesn’t stop some stars from throwing eye-colour caution to the wind and experimenting with their irises the way they would their hair. And it makes a BIG difference, as you can see in the before-and-after comparisons, ahead.
They say the eyes are the window to the soul, so consider a set of coloured contacts a kind of window treatment. The only difference is that window treatments definitely won’t make you go blind without a prescription.

Ivanka Trump
As we've previously noted, Ivanka Trump's eyes are brown in their natural state — but that doesn't stop her from mixing it up once in a while, depending on her audience.

A look back through various photos of the 35-year-old (former) entrepreneur over the years shows that she's experimented with shades of light hazel and blue-green, sometimes even sporting two different looks in the same day.

Kanye West
The rapper's dark brown eyes are deep and soulful, much like his lyrics. (Sample: "Close your eyes and let the word paint a thousand pictures / One good girl is worth a thousand bitches.")

At last year's Met Gala, however, he opted for a striking set of ice-blue lenses, and a creepy, far-off stare.

Selena Gomez
These are the brown eyes that have been breaking Justin Bieber's poor sad-boy heart since 2011.

She looked like an entirely different person in the grey-blue contacts she wore to the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 2015 — namely, longtime VS Angel Adriana Lima, who Bieber was rumoured to be "seeing" around the same time.

Nicki Minaj
Nicki's eyes are naturally dark brown, but appearing "natural" isn't necessarily at the top of her to-do list.

True to form, the woman loves herself a set of coloured contacts, like this blue-green look.
