So you're a brunette and want blue eyes, huh?


Many of you will know already about my passion of fancy dress and dramatic makeup transformation. About 2 years ago, I bought some blue contact lenses, I am not quite sure why, now come to think of it but I bought some. They were not suitable for Halloween (I needed yellow ones for the second year running) so I thought what a better time than New Year's Eve to wear them. The lenses I bought were from Colour Vue and the actual model is called 'Solar Blue'.

I had seen plenty of people wearing some people with dark eyes like me wearing blue lenses but the result had always been a little underwhelming and screaming 'not blue and not dramatic enough.




Were Solar Blue going to turn the same way? Umm, it went pretty much the other way: too dramatic and too freaky looking frankly. In real life, and away from the strong camera flash they appear less bright but still definitely too bright for my liking. In case some of you are into colour contact lenses, here are some pictures of the transformation.

So there you go. If you wanted to have a dramatic colour change, this is what solar blue could look like on your dark eyes.

In case you’re not into contact lenses, here is an attempt at capturing my outfit of the night. My dress is a very simple dress from ASOS, bought in sale at £10 ages ago but it’s my mock stockings tights which I like the best. They were £4.99 and I bought from New Look. I hate my knees so this is perfect to hide them Smile

The quest for dramatic but less freaky colour lenses carries on. Next I want green eyes Smile



Are you into contact lenses? If you are, and blogged about them, please please please send me a link. Or if you have some funki tights, spam me with your link as well. I am nosy and I want to have a look.

Oh yes! I tried both blue and green contact lenses. And they were both too much for me. Here are the links:

I have green eyes but wanted brown eyes (I always like brown eyes with blonde hair) but they looked awful, more black than brown - I looked like I had the cold dead eyes of a shark! My friend, who's Asian, often wears really bright blue lenses...it looks a bit freaky, and my other friend had white ones for Halloween.

I actually like the colour of the ones you have :-)

Oh well... can I say that I really prefer you with your natural eyes? These blue lenses are kind of freaking me out... I totally agree with you, ther're "too much"!. But I love your tights! Really cute!

The dress looks gorgeous! I always think blue contacts look the most unnatural of all the colours. I have some green lenses I was sent to review but will have to wait until I get home to pop them in (lighting in uni halls is abysmal).

I'm actually looking for the really bright blue for my dark brown eyes for a costume. Can I ask how comfortable those were? I've tried a few different types of contact lenses, some I could forget were there, others were just so uncomfortable!
