Eye Love Game of Thrones

October 1st, 2014

We might have once thought a TV show couldn’t have got more popular than the Sopranos. We’d be wrong, as the American fantasy drama Game of Thrones, has now overtaken the Sopranos in the popularity takes, with a whopping 18.4 million Americans turning in each episode. Asides the great acting and compelling storyline, much of Game of Throne’s popularity stems from the character’s incredible costumes and none more so than the color of their eyes. Read on to discover how you can get your favorite Game of Throne character eyes using colored contact lenses.

Daenerys Targaryen’s Gorgeous Eyes

Emilia Clarke is a British actress and Game of Thrones marks her first major TV role. Emilia stars as Daenerys Targaryen, the only surviving child of King Aerys II Targaryen. Daenerys Targaryen’s beauty is blatant and is heightens significantly through her stunning gray eyes surrounded by mesh of baby blonde hair. You too can have eyes as intriguing as Daenerys Targaryen’s by simply wearing a pair of gray contact lenses.

The White Walkers

If you are going to a fancy dress party or to a Halloween event, why not go as a White Walker? These mythical creatures are a species of humanoid beings in the North, ‘beyond the wall’. As the lands ‘beyond the wall’ are primarily wild, unchartered and untamed, so is the attire and look of the White Walkers. As well as their unkempt hair and intensely lined skin, the White Walkers boast eyes as blue as the hottest part of a flame.

By wearing a pair of bright blue contact lenses, back-combing your hair or putting a wild and unruly wig on and painting deep and prominent lines on your skin, you can certainly resemble a White Walker and given the popularity of Game of Thrones at the moment, your choice of fancy dress costume is certain to go down with a bang.

Why Wear Colored Contact Lenses?

September 29th, 2014

Why dye your hair bright pink and be stuck with it for months when you can stand out from the crowd much more simply by wearing a pair of colored contact lenses? Colored contacts are a cost-effective, easy and effective way to look great and be noticed. Asides the blatant gorgeous-inducing traits of sporting eyes as green as emerald, as blue as topaz or as brown as chocolate, colored contacts also conceal the color of eyes an individual might feel unhappy with. Take a look at some of the reasons why people choose to wear colored contact lenses.

To a Party or a Special Occasion

Whether it’s the end of year prom, the office Christmas party, New Year’s Eve or a Halloween party, colored contacts are guaranteed to enhance your outfit and make you feel and look delightfully ostentatious. One of the greatest components of colored lenses is that they come in such a huge range of colors and styles. If, for example, you are attending a fancy dress party as a vampire, wearing a bright and vivid pair of mesmerizing red vampire lenses will take your vampire look to a new level. Or perhaps you want to look as gorgeous as possible to a special occasion, such as a prom or Christmas party? Wearing a pair of Aqua contacts would make you look irrefutably different and undeniably irresistible.

Feel Gorgeous With Blue Contact Lenses

To Conceal Natural Eye Color

It’s an unfortunate trait of contemporary society that certain eye colors are deemed more ‘beautiful’ than others. We only have to look at the eyes Hollywood stars and A-list celebrities to realize what color eyes are considered the ‘height of beauty’.

But have you ever considered the prospect that the stars weren’t actually born with such vibrant colored eyes and their eyes as blue as the ocean are actually created with colored contacts? It is widely rumored that Paris Hilton’s famous baby blue eyes are not her natural color and the illustrious socialite was actually born with brown eyes.

Achieving the color of eye we have always dreamed of is one of the leading reasons people wear colored lenses. If you are going to wear contacts as a means of carrying off another color, you may want to opt for more natural colored tones of green, blue, brown and hazel.

Green Lenses Are a Great Choice

To Hide Unwanted Color Pigmentation

Some people are born with conditions that results in their eye color being ‘different’ to the usual blue, green and brown the majority of people are born with. Whilst having an unusual eye color should be considered unique and desirable, many people living with a condition that effects their eye color strive to change the shade of their irises.

For example, albinism usually results in a lack of pigmentation in the eye causing red-colored eyes. Someone with albinism might want to change the color of their eyes to a more ‘conventional’ green, blue or brown. Whatever your reason for wearing colored contacts, one thing is for sure, these stunningly theatrical lenses are designed to get you noticed!

What to Wear With Your Brown Colored Contact Lenses

September 26th, 2014

Statistically, brown eyes are the most overwhelmingly prevalent eye color on the planet, but there are so many different shades and tones of brown out there that the statement is pretty much redundant. There are many different shades of dark brown, light brown, and browns with specks of other colors too. Even if you were born with brown eyes, there are still many other shades of colored contact lenses that you can try out to see what works best with your skin tone and hair color. But once you have decided your favorite shade of brown, what color styles can you wear to maximize their lovely brownness? Read on to discover some fantastic color combinations which help to highlight brown eyes and make the most of them, whether they’re natural or just for the evening.

Everyday Colors for Brown Eyes

There are so many good color options for casual daily wear, but let’s start with a less obvious one. Blue is very much the friend of brown eyed people. It might not strike you as an exceptionally complimentary combination at first, but there are so many shades of blue which work wonders with brown eyes. There are the darker tones like navy and cobalt which work well, plus lighter tones like turquoise and other soft denim colors which are also highly complimentary. Whatever you blue you choose, really go for it and don’t be too subtle.

Of course, blue isn’t the only color that works in a casual situation. Try bright, true reds and oranges which can highlight the many deep layers of color that brown eyes can have. There are also a number of light green shades like olive and mossy green which compliment brown eyes. Yellow works too, as do the lighter brown shades like khaki. Avoid black though as it doesn’t really do anything for brown eyes.

Quick tips:
• Most blues work brilliantly with brown eyes.
• True reds, but light greens and browns.
• Avoid black-dominated outfits.

Eveningwear Colors for Brown Eyes

Again, avoid black as it’s not a color/shade that works well with brown eyes. Black works with brighter colors like blue and green, but brown eyes will lose a little of their luster when paired with black. Brown itself can work in a more glamorous environment though, but go for a shade closer to cinnamon which will let your eyes shine without you appearing to have a brown theme going on (which is not particularly glamorous to be honest).

Light purple shades such as lilac and lavender are wonderfully elegant, while taupe is another shade you should seek out in an evening gown, as it looks magnificent as well as accentuating your eyes’ brown tones. Golden colors are excellent during autumn time and again look absolutely stunning with brown eyes. You want it to be a warm gold though, nothing too shiny or reflective. Also watch your jewelry choices if wearing golden clothing. Silver pieces will often work with a golden gown better than golden jewelry.

Quick tips:
• Avoid black.
• Cinnamon instead of brown, taupe instead of true purple.
• Never overdo the gold.

Costumes & Party Colors for Brown Eyes

White is a color (or shade, if you want to get technical) that darkens brown eyes, so if you have natural brown eyes or have brown color contact lenses you want to try out, then going for a white costume might be just the ticket. One good all-white costume is the classic Princess Leia look from the original Star Wars. The silky white dress is fairly important, of course, but it will be those famous pastry buns on the side of the head that will make your costume instantly recognizable, so make sure you get those right.

You also have a lot of options in the ghost department (especially with Halloween arriving on the scene soon), and having brown eyes will actually work really well to help differentiate your ghost from the myriad of zombies and various undead costumes that are so prevalent in modern costume parties. So if you’re going for a ghost, think vengeful Japanese spirit in a flowing white nightdress. Whitening your face with theatrical make-up will make your brown eyes stand out even more. Now just brush your hair straight or get a long wig, practice a spooky head tilt and stare your big brown eyes out from under your fringe at anyone who dares disturb your eternal slumber for a plastic cup of punch.

Quick tips:
• Princess Leia’s white outfit from the first Star Wars film.
• Vengeful Japanese spirits.
• Anything else that lets you wear white.

Rare Eye Colors

September 24th, 2014

Did you know that humans are around 99.9% genetically identical? Think about it. We all have brown, black, blonde or red hair. We all have pale, medium or dark skin. And we all have blue, brown, hazel or green eyes. Well almost all of us. With humans being almost genetically identical, the tiny percentage of us who are blessed with some kind of physical characteristic that can be deemed as rare, should consider it as a blessing, after all who wants to blend into the crowd?

Rare eyes can be beautiful. Though it has to be said, as genetically programmed are our bodies to look the same as our fellow citizens, so are our minds and people, generally speaking, don’t like to be considered ‘different, especially when it comes to our looks. Take a look at some of the rarest color eyes in existence and how, if someone is uncomfortable with their unusual eyes, they can cover them up with colored contacts. By the same token, if somebody wants rare eyes, they can create uniqueness with rare lenses.

1024x768_amber_eyes-502147

Amber Eyes

Yes amber eyes do exist and are caused by the deposition of ‘lipochrome’, the yellow pigment in the iris. Amber eyes comprise of yellow, golden and coppery tones and could certainly be considered beautiful for their uniqueness. As yellow/coppery eyes are common in wolves, amber eyes are also known as ‘Wolf eyes.’

If someone who was born with amber eyes feels uncomfortable about their eye color, they could easily disguise them with a pair of green, blue, brown or hazel lenses. Alternatively, anyone who feels thrilled by the prospect of boasting ‘wolf eyes’ they could create a mystifying gaze with a pair of amber lenses.

Red Eyes

Whilst the human eye typically produces sufficient pigment to color the iris brown, blue and green, in some rare cases not enough pigment is produced. This is often the situation with albinism. With an albinistic individual the lack of pigment in the eyes means the red of the retina is visible through the iris and gives the impression of red or pink colored eyes.

Again, this uniqueness should be deemed as beautiful but many albinistic people could yearn more pigment-heavy eyes. Wearing a pair of colored lenses in blue, green or brown, will ensure somebody with naturally red eyes will have the eye color they wish they had been born with. On the other side of the coin, red eyes can be created with a pair of red contact lenses – designed to make you look thoroughly unique and stand out from the crowd.

Find Out Which Celebrities Have Heterochromia Iridium

Black Eyes

Black eyes are perhaps the rarest colored eyes in the world. Dark eyes are widely considered beautiful so it stands to reason that someone with naturally black eyes would be proud to keep them that way. Thanks to the technological advances of colored lenses, it is also possible to have black eyes, to mesmerize, captivate and create a stir.

Heterochromia Iridium

While we tend to assume everybody has two equally colored eyes, this is not always the case. Heterochromia iridium is a condition in which someone is born with two different colored eyes. Heterochromia is usually caused as a result of either excessive or insufficient melanin, inherited, or caused by a genetic condition. Somebody living with two different colored eyes can have equally colored eyes by wearing a pair of colored lenses.

What to Wear With Your Green Colored Contact Lenses

September 17th, 2014

Green eyes, whether natural or acquired with colored contact lenses, add an extra layer of glamour to pretty much any outfit, even the pyjamas you hang around the house in. There are several color choices you can make though which will help your green eyes be even more dominant and attention-grabbing. And if your eye color is indeed a result of a pair of green color contact lenses, then getting them to shine to their maximum and grab plenty of that attention is surely what it’s all about. So here are a few tips for a variety of situations which will make the most of the green in your eyes.

Casual Daily Wear Colors for Green Eyes

There are several shades of brown which work wonders for green eyes. Dark, chocolate browns help the green of your eyes stand out and work particularly well with lighter or blond hair. For fully paid up members of the brunette club, try tan shades reminiscent of a warm coffee with milk. There are some shades that should be avoided, however, especially very light shades of brown. Beige is right out.

Quick tips:
• Darker browns with lighter hair.
• Darker tans with darker hair.
• Avoid beige or its variants.

Smart Daily Wear Colors for Green Eyes

For smart wear during the working day, you can’t go wrong with black. Again, it’s a dark foundation which lets the bright color of the eyes shine out. A more colorful combination is to match deep reds with some dark blue as green eyes respond well to warm colors. Just make sure the red is more prominent. Light colors won’t do much for green eyes, and especially avoid light blue if you want your lovely green peepers to be noticed.

Quick tips:
• Black works well with lighter colored eyes.
• Deep, warm colors, especially red.
• Avoid light blues.

Eveningwear Colors for Green Eyes

When it’s time to glam up for an evening out, then you should consider purple as your base color. It’s an elegant color that works well with most types of jewelry, though particularly well with silver. Also try out some plum make up, as the deep warmth of plum greatly accentuates the green of your eyes. If you really want to go for it though, then deck yourself out in head to toe gold. You want it to be an earthy gold, nothing too shiny, but if you get it right then expect to be turning plenty of heads.

Quick tips:
• Purple and plum are perfect.
• Go golden for extra glamour.
• Avoid anything too shiny or sparkly.

Colors to Highlight Subtle Green Eyes

While there are plenty of green eyes that are bright and colorful, there are also plenty that are more subtle shades which can get lost in poor lighting or in the bright glare of the sun. In such situations you want to break out some green colors to help highlight your eyes. Sage and olive tones are excellent, while darker bottle greens also help accentuate the green in your eyes.

Quick tips:
• Greens with yellow bases (olive etc).
• Dark greens work if they are rich in tone.
• Avoid lemon shades.

What to Wear With Your Silver Colored Contact Lenses

September 14th, 2014

Silver eyes bedazzle, entrance, mystify and enchant. If you want to brighten up any kind of look, a pair of silver contact lenses will never disappoint. But what do you wear with your new glimmering, shimmering eyes? As silver contacts come in numerous shades, ranging from more subtle lenses with a hint of silvery gray to more dramatic tones of dazzling silver, you can wear them to a myriad of occasion, both during the day and at night.

Silver contact Lenses Look Truly Amazing On

What to Wear With Your Silver Contacts During the Day

We have to admit a more subtle shade of silver contacts would be more appropriate during the day. The soft, shimmery finish of these lenses can be intensified by some clever use of make up. Draw out the beauty of the tones with some subtle use of gray eyeliner, eye shadow and mascara. Alternatively, light brown tones work well with silver, so why not cast a flicker of light brown eye shadow to your upper and lower lids? Whether you opt for gray or brown eye make up, just remember to keep it at a minimum to avoid looking too flamboyant during the day.

Your choice of clothes should be equally as well thought out. Again, don’t overdo what you wear with silver lenses to a daytime event. Whilst silver goes well with most colors, it looks particular vibrant when accompanied with darker shades, such as purple, blue and black. As silver is a lively color, be playful with your choice of clothing, but as it’s the daytime, don’t overdo it. Some slinky black jeans, a playful purple top and perhaps a dark gray bag would be a fantastic accompaniment to your subtle silver lenses during the day.

Remember:
. If you’re wearing silver lenses during the day, keep makeup to a minimum
. Darker shades look great with silver, so be playful with dark-colored clothes

Red looks fantastic with silver, so why not complement your eyes with a bright red pout by wearing a generous coating of red lipstick. By the same token, lighten up your eyes even further by wearing a sexy red outfit to your night time party.

Feel Gorgeous Wearing Violet Lenses

During The Day

If you’re determined to flaunt your stunning colored eyes during the day then you’ll need the right clothing, accessories and make up to match. As with most colored lenses during the day, you should refrain from going overboard with what you wear with them. That said, a generous application of blush on your cheek bones will bring out the violet tones of your eyes no end. Likewise, purple-based eye shadow will enhance the color of your irises, just keep it simple during the day for maximum effect.

Pinkish-based clothing would also craft a maximum appeal to your violet eyes. Take a look at Kiera Knightley in this photograph. The Hollywood mega-star’s violet eyes are really brought to life with blush, purple eye shadow, mascara and eye liner and a pink top. Despite the obvious glamor and appeal of Ms Knightley’s look, it doesn’t look too gaudy or over the top for the daytime.

Remember:
. Make the violet tones stand out with a generous application of blush
. Wear purple eye shadow to have the same effect
. Opt for pink-colored clothing, again to bring out the unique tones of your eyes

During The Night

The general rule of what to wear with violet contacts during the day can be used at night, only intensified. The amount of blush you apply to your cheekbones should be thickened, as should your purple eye shadow. Mascara could be replaced with false eyelashes to make your eyes appear bigger and therefore ensure your violet lenses cannot fail to be noticed. Violet eyes should be accompanied with violet colored lips, after all if it’s good enough for the models, it should be good enough for you.

If you are going to a rave or fancy dress party and really want to go to town why not match your violet eyes with a violent lip tattoo? Your choice of clothing should be equally as flamboyant. Craft an even more shimmering, head-turning look by wearing a stunning violet dress. Check out Eva Longoria, Molly Sims and Amy Adams’ violet dresses on the red carpet. You have to admit, their looks would be augmented further with a pair of violet contact lenses!

Remember:
. Bring out the blush – the more the better!
. Go to town with purple eye shadow
. Wear false eyelashes to draw even more attention to your eyes
. Why stop at theatrical eyes when you can have theatrical lips too? Wear a purple lip tattoo
. Complement your violet eyes with a stunning violet dress

What to Wear With Your Gold Colored Contact Lenses

September 10th, 2014

There is nothing new about the intense allurement of gold. For centuries gold has fascinated and enthralled, with the price of gold being a barometer of currencies. Unlike bygone centuries when gold was confined to the jewels of royalty and the aristocracy, we can now grace gold-colored eyes, thanks to colored contact lenses. If you succumb to the unique attraction of gold contact, you’ll want to know what to wear to enhance your stunning new assets. What you should wear with gold contacts very much depends on the occasion.

For a Daytime Event

We have to admit, being the ultimate glamorous color, gold contacts should primarily be prized from their case for an ultra-glamorous occasion. If, for example, you are attending a racing car tournament or a similarly glam event you might want to wear your gold lenses with a similarly-colored hat. Angelina Jolie’s 1920’s cloche hat in a beige/gold color would complement the golden tones of your eyes to a glamorous event.

Take the aristocratic 1920s look even further by wearing a smart gold-colored suit or jacket. Your make up should be not too heavy. Your sparkly eyes will look even more enchanting with a subtle use of mascara and perhaps a thin flick of gold eye shadow.

Remember:
. Where gold contacts to only the most glamorous of daytime events
. Complement the tones with similar colored clothes and accessories
. Don’t overdo makeup. Use it subtly to enhance the beauty of your eye

For A Night Out Clubbing

When the sun goes down and the moon comes out, now’s your chance to ‘let rip’ with your gold contacts. If you’re going to a club, rave or party and want to stand out from the crowd, augment your magical irises by wearing some striking make up and accessories. Red and gold go beautifully together so why not wear a red Lyrca mini dress with your gold contacts?

Complete the look with eye-catching red lips and perhaps a pair of sparkling gold shoes. The beauty of the gold can also be exemplified when surrounded by dark, smoky make up. Really go to town with eye liner, eye shadow and mascara to create a smoky look that makes your gold lenses look even more magical.

Remember:
. Red lipstick and dark ‘smoky’ eyes will complement and enhance the color of your eyes
. Stand out even further by wearing an eye-catching outfit such as a red Lycra dress

For a Fancy Dress Party

Being such a glittery, glamorous color, gold lenses were simply made for a fancy dress party. If, for example, you were going to a 70s night, make your glittery, knee-high platform boots, your super short baby doll dress and your afro hair stand out even further with a pair of gold contact lenses.

Remember:
. Go to town with other equally glittery clothes and accessories
. Don’t be shy, now’s your chance to shine – literally!

What to Wear With Your Red Colored Contact Lenses

September 8th, 2014

There is nothing quite like the color red to denote danger, spookiness and intrigue. It’s hardly surprising film directors around the globe are increasingly turning to the aid of red contacts to intensify the mystery, creepiness and destruction of a character. One only has to look to the Twilight Saga to realize the unique allurement of red ‘vampire’ eyes. The great news is red eyes are not confined to actors on movie sets. With red contact lenses we can all boast the mystifying look red irises portray. But what do we wear to really make our eyes glow?

A Daytime Look

Okay, so you might not feel comfortable wearing a pair of red contact lenses to the office or on a picnic with the in-laws but that doesn’t mean to say these striking lenses are void of daytime wear. Pick the right occasion and your lenses will make a powerful addition to daytime attire. Take a music festival for example. With some subtle use of make up, a fabulous hairdo and the right clothes, your red eyed lenses will really make your festival look come to life.

We recommend wearing a dress with some red in it. A floral maxi dress emblazoned with red flowers would complement the red tones of your eyes and make them really stand out. We also advise that when wearing red contacts during the day your choice of make up should be subtle. A fairly heavy coating of mascara with place greater emphasis on your eyes but perhaps skip wearing any eye shadow or eye liner. A gentle flick of red lipstick will also complement your eyes, but again refrain from over doing it.

Remember:
. Only wear red contacts during in the day if an appropriate occasion occurs
. Keep make up to a minimum but make your eyes stand out further with mascara
. Wear an outfit with red in it to complement the tones of your eyes

Get a Deadly Look With Twilight Contact Lenses

A Fancy Dress Party

Whereas wearing red lenses during the day demands some subtleness, a fancy dress party is your ticket to really go overboard. Choose a character renowned for their devilish eyes and have fun crafting an outfit around that character. For example, if you decide to attend a fancy dress party or Halloween event as a vampire, accompany your vampire lenses with an authentic vampire costume. Get inventive with your make up by enhancing your eyes with dark, sultry eye make up. Wear blood red lipstick to help bring your eyes to life and craft an even spookier tone by having fake blood dripping from the corners of your mouth.

Remember:
. Get theatrical with your make up – the more gruesome the better
. Complete the look with an authentic fancy dress costume

Out Clubbing

Make sure you’re noticed under the glare of the strobe light by wearing a pair of red contact lenses. Take your eye-catching look even further by donning an equally as conspicuous clubbing outfit, such as a red PVC dress. As things can get pretty hot when dancing under the strobe light, wear your hair tied back. Not only will wearing a ponytail help you stay cool but it will also draw greater attention to your mystifying eyes.

Remember:
. Wear an eye-catching clubbing outfit
. Tie your hair back

Now go out and enjoy your red contact lenses, that’s what they’re designed for after all!
