Hey babes!
Today I wanted to talk about my eYeS. As a black person with naturally blue eyes, I get a lot of questions and comments regarding my eye color. The comments I’ve gotten recently have urged me to investigate more as to why my eye might be blue. I’ve always thought it was just inherited by my mom, but turns out there is an actual reason for it, so I decided to put on some make and share with you guys what I found out! I hope you enjoy! XX CYD

People say those things because they think black people can't have natural light eyes, which is ridiculous.

Every race/individual can have light eyes, it's just a matter of genetics.

This is very interesting.

I teach in Detroit, Michigan. And I have a black student with one blue eye and one brown eye. She has spots in her eye. She’s also very pretty just like you. She looks a lot like you. The resemblance is so strong that the two of you could be related. I’m going to make sure she’s had her hearing checked just to be safe. Thanks for the informative video.

Blue eyes on black skin are stunning and beautiful. I think some of those negative comments stem from jealousy

I could tell within 5 seconds that her eyes were really blue. Colored contacts are OBVIOUS because they are convex. The colored part of the eye (Iris) is flat behind a clear layer giving them depth. Your eyes are an amazing shade of steel/crystal blue.
