How to Achieve the Ultimate Natural Blue-Eyed Look

November 26th, 2014

It is hard not to be impressed by someone with dazzling blue eyes, what about Paul Newman, how many of us would like to have that look? Unfortunately most of us have to settle for less colorful tones. There is not a natural way to change your color on a permanent basis.

Your natural iris color is genetic and determined by the amount of melanin it contains. If you only have a small amount of melanin, your eyes are likely to be blue, whilst a lot will make them brown. All babies have blue eyes at first, leading to hopes by the mother that they will stay that way. However once the body starts producing melanin, their eyes generally change.

But Don’t Despair…

You can create a really good safe illusion by wearing contact lenses. Even if you need prescription glasses, you can get colored contacts as replacement prescriptions. The best part is that you can experiment with different blue tones to see what suits you.

To create a blue look you may need to consider your original tone and just tint it slightly, there are some very subtle shades. Otherwise you could go for a blue/grey mix, such as these fusion lenses or even the full dazzling funky blue contact lenses. If you intend clubbing then you could wear electric blue Aqua cat contacts to really purr.

A New Beginning

To achieve the ultimate natural blue-eye look you could try complementing a pair of natural blue lenses with a subtle use of make up or an elegant hair style.

Take a look at these following make up tips to help you achieve a stunning natural blue look:

• If you wear make up, you could alter the colors you use to bring out natural blue tones in the Iris. Copper and Gold shadows will elevate any blue tone. Brown eyes could be cooled by using blue eye shadow or blue eyeliner, that makes the eye area cooler from a distance.
• Wear some subtly colored lipstick that won’t draw attention from your natural blue eyes but will enhance the color and intrigue. Pick a matte lipstick that is peachy pink or pale pink to help put all the focus on your beautiful blue eyes.
• Winged eye-liner also looks fabulous with blue eyes and can help create a natural look. Cat eyes or winged eye-liner can be worn for everyday occasions like going to the office or to lunch with friends. But for a night on the town, get a more dramatic look to enhance your natural blue eyes further by wearing thicker, more exaggerated lines.

And there you have it, with the right choice of colored contact lenses and some subtle use of makeup you can have the beautiful blue eyes you have always dreamt of and act as if they were the eyes you were born with.

Contact Lenses Make an Appearance in Thor 2

November 19th, 2014

You know contact lenses have really secured their position as a movie production necessity when the list of the cast and crew includes a ‘contact lens optician’. This is the case in Thor 2 when the magnetic eyes of the characters demanded a contact lens optician to be on standby.

If you saw Thor: The Dark World in 2013, you’ll likely to remember the superhero film’s legendary costumes. Thor: The Dark World is the sequel to 2011′s Thor. This powerful production boasted incredible costumes and special make-up effects which augmented the movie’s appeal.

Gold Contact Lenses

Movies featuring red, azure blue and emerald green lenses have become fairly familiar in the modern era but characters with gold lenses take the concept of surreal and fascinating eyes to another level.

Thor 2 features gold lenses through the Norse god Heimdall. Heimdall is an Asgardian, an extra-dimensional powerful race who were worshipped by the Norsemen as Gods. Though Heimdall boasts sensory capabilities which far exceed those of other Asgardians. Consequently Heimdall is given the role of the gatekeeper to Asgard.

Enhancing his powerful and beyond human look are Heimdall’s gold eyes set against his shiny gold armor. His huge helmet and compelling gold eyes entrance fellow characters and the movie’s audience in equal doses. You can recreate Heimdall’s inspiring look in Thor 2 by wearing a pair of gold contact lenses.

Loki Laufeyson

Loki Laufeyson is the main antagonist in Thor and its sequel Thor: The Dark World. Loki is an expert liar and is considered a God of Mischief. Loki’s looks are deceptive, appearing to be genuine and nice when in reality he believes he is destined to rule Asgard or even Earth.

Loki’s true colors are exposed when he and other warriors go to the healing room after battle to treat their wounds. When Loki lifts the Casket of Ancient Winters, his skin turns Jotun blue whilst his eyes turn Jotun red.

This powerful scene in Thor 2 naturally required the use of stunning red contact lenses to transform Loki’s look into one of power, menace and intrigue.

If you want to mimic Loki’s eye-changing capabilities, why not purchase a pair of red contact lenses? Whether you are going to a fancy dress party this Christmas or merely want to finish an eye-catching outfit for New Year’s Eve off impeccably with a pair of contact lenses, like Loki’s eyes in Thor 2, red contacts never fail to create a stir.

Thor 2 is one of a long line of movies in recent years, which have reaped the enchanting and dramatic benefits colored contact lenses bring. It’s hardly surprising directors are having to call upon the expertise of ‘contact lens opticians’ as part of the crew!

Derek Hale is one of Teen Wolf’s main characters. He was born into a family of werewolves. According to Peter Hale, when he was 15 years old Derek wanted to bite his girlfriend so she too could become a werewolf. When his plan didn’t go ahead, Derek killed his girlfriend.

Because Derek had taken an innocent life, his eyes changed from yellow to blue, as werewolves who have killed an innocent person are marked by receiving a pair of signature azure blue eyes. The werewolf’s eyes also flash red to symbolise his werewolf antics.

Attraction is a complex word; it can cover many aspects of an individual’s persona. However there is no doubt that when you are face to face with someone, their eyes are one of the most important features. They are normally full of expression and the color will go a long way to accentuate the impression you get.

Glasses can be very trendy and in themselves create a personality, they can be used with or without contacts and can even compliment, by careful juxtaposition of colors. But a lot of women prefer to use contacts because once they are in, they give little or no problem, and are not so easy to lose when they are out and about.

Some people will by necessity need prescription lenses, but these can also be tinted. However, using colored lenses, purely as a cosmetic feature, is becoming extremely popular.

Dress to Impress with Contact Lenses

November 5th, 2014

We change our clothes and shoes, depending on what we are about to get up to,be it work or play. Ladies change the way they do their hair and the amount of makeup. And some men grudgingly abandon the half grown beard and actually comb their hair,before they are allowed to appear in public with their partners. Others even go as far as dying out the grey or wearing a hairpiece. We change jewelry, put on ties; in fact just about everything gets changed especially if we are going out somewhere special. So why not change the color of our eyes?

The Formal Dinner

Knowing what to wear at a formal dinner must be a nightmare for many women, at least the guys can put on their best suit and tie or dinner jacket. But having decided on the color scheme and assured yourself that the dress is unlikely to be worn by someone else at the same event, then how to wear your hair is probably the next thing on the list. Having got this far why not go one better and match your ensemble with similar color contact lenses. That would be a great way to finish off the overall effect. Try these Aqua Glamour lenses,they will flatter your complexion and go with matching accessories.

The Fancy Dress

This is an easier decision to make. Once you have decided on your character,the contact lenses should be fairly obvious a choice. If you fancied being Dracula, what about, Dracula blood lenses. On the other hand big wolf eyes would be rather cool. The zombie touch with plain white contact lenses is really freaky and unnerving.


Dracula Face Contacts Look Amazing

Life Change

Sometimes people just want to make a change in their Life. Normally it would be the way they present themselves and possibly a new hairstyle,to go along with their intention to do more exercise,cut down on the fatty foods or just be more pleasant to themselves and others. Whatever the resolutions, it sometimes helps to reinforce the intention with a few life props.

Buying yourself some new clothes, changing the car, or having a complete makeover, could all be considered. The power of changing your eye color is highly underrated. The eyes are the main focal point in a face; it is what everyone tends to look at whilst talking to you. If you have ever spoken to anyone with piercing blue or emerald green eyes, you will know the power they hold over your concentration.

You don’t have to suddenly change dramatically from dark brown to vivid blue,but there are plenty of subtle changes that can be made. Try ColourVue 3 Tone blue lenses that create a natural smooth but bright color that brightens up your face. Or glimmer green lenses that sparkle, printed onto a clear background so your natural color adds to the intensity. If you are brave enough then go for the full impact effect such as with these black & gold lenses.
