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

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.

Whether you are going to a fancy dress party or want to create a stir this New Year’s Eve, you can do so by mimicking Derek Hale’s changeable glowing eyes by wearing a pair of dramatic wolf lenses.

Most Common Eye Colors

October 20th, 2014

The human eye is possibly the most beautiful part of our bodies. No two pairs of eyes are exactly the same, they are thoroughly unique. Despite the uniqueness of our eyes, there are certain eye colors that are regarded the most common.

Brown eyes

Brown eyes are the most common eye color in the world. In fact, more than 55% of the global population have brown eyes. Most people in Asia and Africa share brown eyes. This beautiful color of eyes is darker than any other eye color and is generated by a strong presence of melanin in the iris. Brown eyes go with a multitude of looks and outfits. If you have a hankering to change the color of your eyes, opting for a pair of natural brown contact lenses will ensure your look is natural and stunning and can be worn to everyday events as well as big nights out and parties.

Blue eyes

Blue eyes are considered the most beautiful of eye colors. They are formed by a lack of the melanin chemical. Blue eyes might not be as common as brown ones worldwide, they are more common in northern Europe where many people don beautiful blue eyes. It has been estimated that 8% of the global population have blue eyes.
Natural blue contact lenses will give you the gorgeous look only 8% of the world’s population have been naturally blessed with. Whether you are going to a party or just want to spruce up your look at the office, a pair of natural blue lenses will talk volumes.

Hazel eyes

Hazel eyes are lighter than brown ones and combine tones of green and yellow. The beauty of hazel eyes stems from the fact they are noticeably darker around the border of the eye. This is due to higher levels of melanin around the outside of the eye, which makes the iris look multi-hued. Depending on the lighting, hazel eyes can vary between brown and green. It has been estimated that between 5 and 8% of the world’s population have hazel eyes. You too can enjoy the multi-hued tones of hazel eyes. Simply wear a pair of natural hazel contact lenses and have hazel eyes during the day or on even events – the choice is yours.

Green eyes

Despite many people having green eyes in the Western world, compared to the likes of brown, globally they are significantly less common. In fact it has been estimated that just 2% of the world’s population have green eyes. Nonetheless 2% of the global population is significant and green eyes are considered one of the most common color of eyes. Green eyes are produced by a small amount of the pigmentation melanin and possess golden tones. Thanks to natural green contact lenses anyone can enjoy the beauty and attention green eyes generate and due to the naturalness of these lenses, they can be worn during the day as well as at night.

What’s The Difference Between Brown & Hazel Eyes?

October 17th, 2014

What’s the difference between Brown and Hazel Eyes? This is a very good question and one that needs exploring. One might tend to assume hazel eyes are slightly lighter than brown eyes but is this really the case? You might have natural brown eyes, or hazel eyes, or perhaps one of both! Or maybe you yearn to have mystifying dark brown eyes or luscious hazel ones, and wear brown or hazel colored contacts on a night out. Whatever your association with brown or hazel eyes, take a look at what the differences are between these beautifully colored eyes.

Brown Eyes

The color of a person’s eyes depends on the production of a chemical called melanin. The more melanin present in an iris, the higher the chances are that the eyes will be brown. The shades of brown eyes vary significantly, ranging from light brown to very dark brown, which is often confused with being black. The shade of brown is dependent on how much melanin is present in the iris. Compared to green and blue eyes, brown eyes have the highest levels of melanin in them. But where do hazel eyes fit in?

Hazel Eyes

Hazel eyes resemble the color of a hazelnut, hence their name! These intrinsically pretty eyes combine an interesting mix of brown and green, which makes them appear to change between pure brown eyes and pure green eyes. Two genes are responsible for this mix of green and brown and hazel eyes being produced. These genes are known as bey 2 and gey. Both of the genes have two versions, one of which makes higher levels of melanin and one makes less amounts of melanin. Someone with hazel eyes have both the bey 2 and gey genes present.

The Differences

Brown eyes will always stay brown but hazel eyes are a mixture of green and brown and therefore sometimes look predominantly green and sometimes look predominantly brown. Brown eyes have significantly more melanin in them than hazel eyes. The hazel color in eyes is a result of less quantities of melanin in the iris. Hazel eyes are extremely rare in Asia and the Middle East. They are most common in Europe and America. Both brown and hazel eyes are unquestionably beautiful and the good news is that even if you weren’t born with these equally as enchanting colored eyes you can enjoy brown and hazel eyes with colored contact lenses.

Contact Lenses & Sport Guide

October 15th, 2014

Unlike glasses, which can be a hindrance when worn on the sports field, contact lenses offer no such hurdles. These convenient accessories can be worn and enjoyed when playing almost every sport and regardless of the level of physical activity. That said, there are certain points to consider when wearing contacts and playing sport.

Running

If you go running or perhaps jogging and wear glasses, the momentum of the run is likely to cause your glasses to slip down your nose and end up on the floor. Contact lenses give you the freedom to run as freely as possible without being in fear that your glasses will slip off. If it is a particularly sunny day when you go for a run, you may want to consider wearing some UV protecting sun glasses. The shape of these specialized glasses will ensure they stay safely on your head and they will protect your contacts from the glare of the sun.

Ball Sports

Glasses and ball sports such as squash, badminton and tennis do not go hand in hand for the simple reason glasses could easily be knocked off by the ball. Again, contacts give you the freedom to run around the court freely and give you a complete, all-round view without any chunky frames getting in the way of your field of vision.

Cycling

When going on a bike ride, whatever the terrain, it is advisable to wear a pair of specialist cycling glasses. These professional glasses use advanced technology and ergonomic features to create a versatile, lightweight and high performance set of sports glasses. Naturally, if you are wearing conventional glasses you won’t be able to take advantage of the performance-enhancing features of cycling glasses.

It would therefore make sense to trade your glasses for a pair of contacts when going out on a cycle. These carefully-designed glasses will also help protect your contact lenses and eyes from any potential grit and dirt that might flick up into your eyes when cycling.

Swimming

Swimming is one of the only sports where wearing contact lenses is not advised. Swimming when wearing contacts can result in irritation, eye infections and even conditions that could be potentially threatening to one’s sight, such as a corneal ulcer. The FDA recommends that contact lenses should not be exposed to water of any kind, including swimming pools, the sea, rivers, lakes, baths and showers.

So if you go swimming, remember to take your lenses out. The majority of sports however can be enjoyed with contacts, which prove irrefutably more liberating and performance-enhancing then conventional glasses. Just remember to wash your lenses after the sport to remove any dirt that might have built up and, when possible, wear specialist sports glasses to protect your eyes and lenses.

50 Shades of Gray Contact Lenses

October 13th, 2014

In case you don’t already know, the best-selling book 50 Shades of Grey is being turned into a movie. The film of the erotic novel is set to be released in 2015. If you are in the seemingly minority of the population who have not read the book, 50 Shades of Grey is about a young college graduate who falls in love with the successful and older Christian Grey. Christian Grey might have the hearts swooning and pulses racing of every woman who picks up the book but we have to admit if there is one thing sexier than the novel’s protagonist, it’s gray contact lenses.

A Multi-hued Iris

True gray eyes are exceptionally stunning and enhance a multitude of styles and looks. Like blue eyes, the iris of gray eyes combine a clear stroma at the front with a dark epithelium at the back. At a first glance, gray eyes are often confused with blue. Though if you take a deeper look, you may notice small flecks of gold and brown. Or in some cases, the owner of gray eyes might have subtle tones of green or blue strewn within the iris.

Because of the multi-hued nature of gray eyes, numerous coloured outfits can be worn to enhance their stunning appearance. For example, if a pair of gray eyes have a significant amount of blue tones in them, a blue outfit would augment the colour of the eyes. Likewise the eyes would enhance the blue shade of the outfit. By the same token, if the gray eyes are blessed with flicks of gold and brown, autumnal-coloured clothing should be worn to bring out the multi-coloured beauty of the eyes.

Gray eyes that border on blue look incredibly alluring with gray shades of eye make up. Create a smoky gray look by smudging gray eye liner to the bottom and top of your eye lids.

Paint a gentle flick of eye shadow on your lids to really bring out those beautiful gray and bluish tones. If the grey eyes boast golden tones craft a dramatic and truly eye-catching look by experimenting with shades of turquoise, silver and even fuchsia. Or if you are going on a big night out, why not really enhance your gorgeous grey eyes by wearing lavender or violet eye make up? Complete this stunning look with a sexy lavender dress.

What to Wear with Your Gray Colored Contact Lenses

October 8th, 2014

Gray eyes are often confused with blue eyes, but they are a distinctly different eye color altogether. While true blue eyes are unmistakable, gray eyes often include blue, green or brown flecks, sometimes even flecks of gold and orange, and the gray tone can vary in lightness too.

In a well lit environment, gray eyes are more easily determined, while darker environments are what usually lead to the assumption of them being blue. Another cause of confusion is ignorance, as a large number of people simply don’t recognize gray as a definitive eye color. But it is, and the difference between gray eyes and blue eyes is actually similar to the difference between a cloudless blue sky and an overcast gray sky.

What Causes Gray Eyes?

When light shines through the cornea it passes through two layers in the iris and an area in between called the stroma. The light is then reflected back and it is that reflection which determines the color of the eye as observed from the outside.

Aside from albinos, everybody has melanin pigments in the back layer, which creates all eye colors, but brown-eyed people also have melanin in the front layer which makes them darker. The blue eyed effect is created when the front layer has little to no extra pigments, similar to how we observe the reflected light of a clear sky as blue.

The light is ‘blue’ because it bends and appears differently according to vision capabilities of the human eye. What causes gray eyes is believed to be extra deposits of collagen in the stroma between the two layers, a bit like the extra deposits of water in the air that create overcast skies (preventing the light from bending in the same way it does when it appears blue).

Blue-eyed folks don’t have the melanin pigments in their front layer that cause brown eyes, nor the extra collagen in the stroma that causes gray eyes. But more importantly than how it all works, how can we look our best with gray eyes, whether they are natural or created with the modern wonder of gray color contact lenses?

Color Combinations for Gray Eyes

The exact color combinations that will work for you will depend on which other colors are present in your gray eyes. Often there is a little blue, green or brown, so wearing whichever of these is prominent in your eyes will help highlight that color. If your eyes are pure gray, then you’re actually very lucky as your eyes will work with pretty much any clothing color combo. The key though, is in the eye make-up that will accompany your eyes.

Make-Up Tips for Gray/Blue Eyes

This is one of the most common gray eye color combos, and there are plenty of eye make-up colors which help to enhance your eyes and make them shine. The shades that work best with gray/blue eyes are:

• Gray (with shimmer)
• Light purple shades
• Violet
• Bronze
• Dark Blue

Remember also that the darker your skin tone, the darker the eye make-up shades should be too. The shimmer gray color could also be switched up for a shinier silver color, though that would be more suited to a party atmosphere than a serious work environment.

Make-Up Tips for Gray/Green Eyes

For gray eyes with green parts, it is similar to the gray/blue scenario, though obviously the dark blue won’t work to highlight green. There are plenty of non-green colors that help to accentuate the green parts of your eyes though. Some popular ones are:

• Gray (with shimmer)
• Taupe
• Warm reds (not too pink)
• Lilac/Lavender
• Copper

Instead of using blue to highlight the blue, you can of course simply use green eye make-up to highlight the green parts of your eyes. Make sure to experiment in the privacy of your own home first to ensure it suits your skin tone. There is not much worse (make-up wise) than wondering why everyone keeps asking if you’re feeling okay today.

Make-Up Tips for Gray/Brown Eyes

If you have brown flecks in your gray eyes, then what make-up you choose will obviously depend on whether you want to darken your eyes towards the brown, or lighten your eyes towards the gray. To highlight the gray tones of your eyes, you will need to use light make-up which will help other people’s eyes pick up on your gray tones more than the brown. Some good ones to start with are:

• Gray (with shimmer)
• Silver
• Light purple shades
• Soft green
• Light blue

To darken your eyes, you can utilize bronze and copper shades which will pick out your brown flecks as well as they help highlight blue and green flecks. Those metallic tones will also enhance any specks of orange which sometimes appear in gray/brown eyes.

What to Wear with Your Hazel Colored Contact Lenses

October 6th, 2014

Hazel eyes are an awkward bunch to color-coordinate for, as it is often the various other accompanying colors that define them. They often start with a light brown or green base, but have their own category due to the numerous other colors that often make hazel eyes a little bit special. Many hazel-eyed folks appear to be green-eyed with light shining near them, but brown-eyed in less well lit situations. One of the causes of this effect is that hazel eyes have considerably less melanin in them than true brown eyes, but significantly more than is present in blue eyes.

Hazel eyes are actually considered semi-rare; that is, far less common than true brown eyes, but more common than pure green eyes, Hazels often contain two separate and distinct color rims around the pupil, with the most common variety of this effect being a brown inner rim circled by a green outer rim. It is this clear distinction between some of the colors in hazel eyes that makes the light levels of a room affect how the eye color is perceived by others. Other types of hazel eyes include speckles or rims of orange and yellow. It is this interesting mysteriousness of hazel eyes that makes them such a popular choice for cosmetic lenses, with hazel color contact lenses providing a versatility that other purer colors cannot match.

Draw Everyone’s Attention with Hazel Eyes

Color Combinations for Hazel Eyes

All hazel eyes respond very well to autumnal colors. The many shades of brown, as well as green and gold, all serve to highlight hazel eyes. The best method though is a combination of these colors, as hazel eyes are a combination of colors themselves. Copper and bronze shades work perfectly with hazel eyes showing orange tones. Reds can work too, but they must be warm and deep reds, and with complimentary browns and earthy gold to match. Hazel eyes rarely benefit from wearing one color tone, so look to vary the shades of the garments you’re wearing.

Quick tips:
• Autumnal colors are perfect.
• Warm reds only, nothing too bright.
• Wear a variety of color tones.

Color Combinations for Green-Dominated Hazel Eyes

To highlight the green elements of hazel eyes, you need to wear green clothing near the face. Mossy greens, olives and any green with a yellow base should enhance the green elements of hazel eyes. Wear a green scarf or headband for maximum effect, but the effect will still work with tops, jackets and even jewelry.

Quick tips:
• Wear green to highlight the green in hazel eyes.
• Green clothing worn near the face is preferable.
• Green jewelry like jeweled earrings and necklaces work too.

Color Combinations for Brown-Dominated Hazel Eyes

To accentuate the brown elements of hazel eyes, then you need to wear dark brown colors. The darker the brown you wear, the more the darker brown elements of your hazel eyes will dominate. Perhaps surprisingly following the dark brown advice, you can also wear white, which brown tends to stand out against better than other colors and shades. Dark brown and white together is a very effective color combo for highlighting darker hazel eyes. Black will also work similarly to how dark brown works, but there will be no real correlation between eye color and outfit so the effect may be less than if you went with a dark chocolate brown.

Quick tips:
• Wear chocolate browns to enhance the brown in hazel eyes.
• White works as a fantastic highlighter of brown eyes.
• Avoid greens and yellows, which only accentuate similar colors.

Find Out Which Celebrities Have Hazel Eyes

Celebrities with Hazel Eyes

There are numerous celebrities with hazel eyes that you might not even have noticed. Actors like Charlize Theron, Rachel Weisz and Angelina Jolie all have hazel eyes, though you might struggle to notice when looking at some of their photo-shoots due to a little bit of photo-shopping and light manipulation to highlight the lighter elements of their eyes. Audrey Hepburn is one of the classic movie stars with hazel eyes, while modern up and comers like Mila Kunis and Kristen Stewart also have eyes with the most difficult to define color.

Some of these celebrities often appear to have green or even blue eyes sometimes, but it is not always down to Photoshop. Hazel eyes will often reflect similar colors in their surroundings, so magazine images and film posters are often manipulated during the shoot to make the eyes brighter and more striking. Celebrities like actors are often being photographed by the paparazzi as well, which means bright camera flashes going off before their faces which also results in the lighter elements appearing more dominant.

Not every hazel-eyed celebrity appears to change eye color from picture to picture though, and many of them are proud of their hazel eyes. Pop star Kelly Clarkson even felt the slightly unnecessary need to describe her eye color in her heartbreak anthem Behind These Hazel Eyes. Quite what it has to do with the end of the relationship she’s singing about is anyone’s guess. Perhaps her ex wanted someone with less interesting peepers.
