Benefits of Contact Lens Tweezers

If you wear coloured contact lenses frequently, you may prefer to use contact lens tweezers to handle your lenses. Contact lens tweezers are soft-tipped tweezers that you can use to pick up your lenses. They make it easy to handle your lenses and prevent accidental damage. Some contact lenses can be very delicate and it is easy to scratch or rip a lens. This is especially true if you have long nails – you should never use your nails to pick up a contact lens. Soft-tipped contact lens tweezers are very gentle on the lens and ensure that your lens is not damaged in any way.

Contact lens tweezers also make it easy to maintain good contact lens hygiene. Every time you touch a contact lens, you may introduce bacteria and irritating particles to the lens. Obviously you can reduce this risk by washing your hands thoroughly, but contact lens tweezers reduce it even further. They are easy to keep completely clean and mean less contact between your fingers and the contact lens. Lens tweezers are easy to use, cheap and available from most contact lens shops. There are many benefits to using contact lens tweezers, but the main benefits are as follows:

    • Makes it easier to pick up contact lenses
    • More hygienic than using your fingers
    • Very gentle on contact lenses
    • Easy to keep clean
    • Prevents contact lens rips and damage
    • Reduces germ transfer from your hands to your lenses
    • Ideal for people with long fingernails – reduces damage to lenses


Gorgeous Brown Contact Lenses

Whether your natural eye colour is dark or light, brown contact lenses are a fabulous way to update your style and light up your whole look. Brown colour contacts are very flattering and can really transform your look. If you have blue or green eyes, a pair of brown contacts will add warmth and drama to your features. If you already have brown or black eyes, you can use brown contact lenses to intensify your eyes or add a little extra glamour to your look. There are hundreds of different brown contact lenses available online, but below are two of the most popular varieties.

Natural Look Brown Contact Lenses

These natural brown contact lenses are specially designed to look convincing, but with added drama and depth. When selecting natural brown contact lenses, it is important to find a design that compliments your natural colouring and skin tone. The Glimmer and Mystic lenses below both have a clear background, which means that they can blend in with your natural eye colour. These lenses look very natural on green, hazel or grey eyes, but less so on blue eyes. The 3-Tone Brown Contact Lenses, on the other hand, cover your natural eye colour completely and will look gorgeous regardless of your natural colour.

Brown Circle Lenses

Another popular variety of brown contacts are brown circle lenses, a lovely example of which you can see here. These contacts feature a dramatic black outer ring that makes them really stand out. They are inspired by the wide-eyed look of anime characters and give your eyes a truly unique look. These brown circle lenses give a sweet but soulful look and make your eyes look bigger.


Easy Witch Halloween Costume

Witch Halloween Costume

Need a last minute Halloween costume? For women, you can’t go wrong with a classic witch costume – a basic witch Halloween costume is easy to put together from items in your wardrobe, plus black is always stylish! You can make your witch costume as simple or eye-catching as you like, depending on what you have to hand. For an easy witch Halloween costume all you will need is a black dress and a witches’ hat, plus any accessories you can rustle up at the last minute. Stripy tights, spider earrings or a wild grey wig are all great ways to add flair, or you can get creative with make up. Full green make up can be tricky, but you can make a real statement with just pale foundation and eyeshadow. You could create a gaunt look with hollow cheeks, or go as a glamorous witch with shimmery eyeshadow, dramatic winged eyeliner and purple lipstick.

If you have time, Halloween contact lenses are a great way to make a simple costume more effective. You can find a great choice of witch contact lenses online, including the selection below. Go for classic witchy green eyes, dramatic blackout contact lenses or even spooky all-white contact lenses. Coloured contact lenses will make your witch costume stand out and can be worn again with another Halloween costume or to another party.

Natural Blue Contact Lenses

Fancy changing your eye colour for a day? Natural-look contact lenses are a great way to change your eye colour and completely transform your look – but just for a day! There are many different types of contact lenses available, including lenses that are specially designed to look natural and convincing. Natural blue contact lenses are one of the best ways to transform your eyes. The blue is a universally flattering eye colour that will light up your complexion and give you a beautiful new look. There are so many different colours to choose from, I have picked out a few natural blue contact lenses that will work for anyone. Personally, I find that it is important to consider how dark or light the coloured contact lenses are in comparison to your own eyes. For example, deep blue contact lenses with a black outline look more natural if you have dark brown eyes; while pale blue contacts look best on people with light hazel or green eyes.

Natural Look Blue Contact Lenses

Here you can see three of my favourite natural look blue contact lenses. These lenses are specially designed to blend in with your natural eye colour for a soft, convincing effect. The two lenses on the left are especially good at this. They feature a dappled pattern on a clear background. The background lets your natural eye colour show through, giving a natural blended effect. The lens on the right does not have a clear background. It has a lovely deep colour and dramatic outline, perfect for people with dark-coloured eyes.

You can also buy your natural blue contact lenses in a kit. These kits have everything you will need to wear and clean your contact lenses. This includes contact lens solution and a contact lens storage case. It is very important to keep your contact lenses clean and store them correctly in between uses. This will keep your eyes safe and reduce the risk of eye irritation.
