Bright Pink Contact Lens for blue eyes

Okay, So i am having trouble trying to find bright pink (not freakishly bright tho) contact lens for my eyes. My doctor said the diameter of my eye is 14.3 which is unusually small in the contact world apparently because all i can find are 14.0 or 14.5+ I was told not to go smaller than my diameter because that can hurt my eye. If I go to much bigger, I tried 14.5 my eye color shows through. I have really blue/hazel eyes. I am wanting to do a Yin cosplay but i can't find any pink lens in my size. I usually use pinky paradise and thought these would be perfect but the diameter is to big.

I'm sorry to say, but with ANY colored lens, you'll see your natural color around the pupil hole. Its just how they're made, especially circle lenses. You'll also only see 14.0 mm or 14.5 mm and up with circle lenses. They're meant to make the eyes look bigger by way of covering part of the sclera (whites of the eye) with the lens. The "Real Life" picture link on the Pretty Crystal Pink page shows a girl with grayish-looking eyes and, while it is a relatively terrible quality image, it should give you a bit of an idea. I don't really understand your description of your eye color, sad to say, but if your eyes are mostly blue, your lenses could become a paler (and, by conjunction, brighter looking) pink. These lenses are pretty sheer, hence why they look somewhat darker on the model. Pink can be a tricky color to go for! I should know :P

Pretty Crystal Pink lenses are going to be tough to wear on light eyes because of how big the pupil hole is if you are trying to cover as much of your natural color as possible. I actually used this set for my Yin though I do not have pics w/ these lenses while in that costume. They worked well for me but I have dark eyes. Here is a photo review I did of them http://fav.me/d46cnbm and the point of linking this is so that you can see how huge the pupil hole is compared to other lenses. Here is a pic from HoneyColor and their model has light blue eyes which are quite visible through the pupil hole. That said, the lens color was pretty opaque and would be good for covering any eye color [just compare the pics].

I think some safer bets would be:
Adult Pink (see IRL pics from people w/ light eyes)
Dolly Eye Pink (2 pics from people w/ light eyes)
Vassen Lollipop Pink (model has light blue eyes for ref)
Vassen Butterfly Pink (no ref pics but this series is 'what you see is what you get' because the colors are so opaque)
Vassen Ruby Pink (also very opaque lenses that will cover any natural eye color)

Pupil holes are not quite as big on these but you will still get a noticeable color.

hmm you need a really bright shade of contact lens so your natural eye color would not be visible.

Try these:

Dolly Eye BT Pink http://www.uniqso.com/dolly-eye-bt-pink?search=pink
Dolly Eye Bubble Pink http://www.uniqso.com/dolly-eye-bubble-pink?search=pink
Twilight Pink http://www.uniqso.com/dolly-eye-twil...ch=pink&page=2

or zombie pink! http://www.uniqso.com/geo-sf19?search=pink&page=2
