How to Achieve the Ultimate Natural Blue-Eyed Look

Wednesday, 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

Wednesday, 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!

Most Common Eye Colors

Monday, 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?

Friday, 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.

50 Shades of Gray Contact Lenses

Monday, 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.
