Whether it’s for fancy dress or to swoon the heart of a loved one at a prom or party, pink contact lenses never fair to entrance on-lookers and get their wearers’ noticed. But what exactly do you wear to accompany your magical pink eyes? Providing you get it right, pink colored contacts can be significantly enhanced with some clever use of color and clothing.
Casual Daily Wear
Okay, so pink eyes might not be the most common of eye color but that doesn’t mean they can’t be worn for ‘every day’ purposes. The thing to remember if you are wearing pink contacts for everyday activities is not to go overboard with make up or clothing.
As Mai Quynh, celebrity make up artist, states:
“Pink brightens up the face without having to wear too much make up. It creates a fresh, happy look on the eyes.”
In terms of clothing, choose clothes that will complement your pink eyes. Gray goes hand in hand with pink and is also a popular ‘everyday’ color. Similarly, black goes great with pink, so you may want to opt for black items of clothing so that your beautiful black eyes really shine through and are not ‘stifled’ or clashed with gaudy colored clothing.
. Subtle make up that doesn’t ‘compete’ with the conspicuousness of the contacts
. Opt to wear colored clothes that complement your pink eyes, which again don’t draw attention away from your eyes. Grays and blacks work especially well with pink and are perfect for everyday use, particularly as the colder weather is beckoning.
Costume Parties & Evenings
When it comes to wearing pink colored contact lenses to a costume party or to a glamorous evening event, less subtlety should be applied. In fact, there should be all hands on deck to be noticed! Why not augment the wow factor of your pink eyes by coloring your hair pink, wearing a pink wig or even dyeing your eyebrows a shade of pink? Make your eyes really come alive by wearing a pair of luscious false eye lashes, not to mention lashings of pink lipstick.
And What About The Clothing?
Love it or loathe it, when it comes to color matches that stand out, one of the most ostentatious has to be pink and purple. Turn heads and spark conversation at the forthcoming prom or dinner party by wearing a stunning pink and purple, long, flowing dress, accompanied with a pair of funky bright pink contacts.
Or, if you are really feeling daring, enhance your pink eyes further by wearing an equally as eye-catching pink lip tattoo. This look would be particularly suitable for a fancy dress party where there is always an emphasis on standing out. Or perhaps a club or all-night rave where your pink eyes and lips will really shine under the UV glare.
. Choose equally as conspicuous make up, hairstyles and clothing to enhance your provocative look.
. Opt for color matches that work well with pink and don’t scrimp on flamboyance, such as pink and purple.
Whatever you’re planning on doing this weekend, with pink colored contacts, the world is your oyster.
