It’s all in the Eyes!

I am a kind of person who always gets drawn towards intense powerful eyes. I love looking at photographs with close-ups of models in beautiful eye makeup. In my view, expressive eyes speak a thousand words!!! Such is the impact of a pair of strong eyes that it can leave people spell-bound. Indeed a piece of art in itself!!!

Needless to say, I pay a lot of attention to my own pair of eyes as well. I am into eye makeup and most often keep my lips nude. Though nothing special, but I love my eyes just the way they are. It’s my way of loving myself and not wanting to change anything by going under the knife. I do exercise to stay in shape and do use make-up to hide a few flaws here and there but more than that, there isn’t much that I have ever tried to change about my appearance.

Then came home this offer from Adore, an Italian Cosmetic and Beauty Contact Lenses company, to try out their range of colored contact lenses. Frankly,  I have never tried out contact lenses before, though you might have seen me in a wide variety of eye wears lately. I was skeptical but interested at the same time to see how my eyes would look in a different color.

The natural color of my eyes is deep brown so I picked Dare Hazel which is a few shades lighter than my natural color. There were the greens and the blues that would have looked beautiful and dramatic, but as a newbie contact lens user, I chose staying closer to my natural eye color.

Gosh! Why didn’t I think about using contact lenses earlier! I love how intense my eyes look.

It’s pretty much like trying out a new eye makeup, switching to a new lip or a hair color.

Nothing outrageous, no going under the knife, just plain and simple colored contact lenses! Although the shade isn’t much different from my natural color but at least I am confident to wear colored lenses more frequently and may be even try out some dramatic shades next time.

    Nice write. A few years ago, I also used to wear contact lenses. They were mean for eyesight correction, not for cosmetic purpose. Initially they felt good but as time went by I found them difficult to maintain because of the dust and pollution in Delhi. And once when I was a hurry to leave for work, one of my lenses slipped from my finger and literally fell into the drain! And then there was that incident in which my Mom gave me some peppers to chop for pakoras. A few minutes later, I decided to remove my lenses from my eyes and the peppery touch from my fingers went into my eyes…I still remember how painful it was…Please don’t mind my saying so, but based on my experience I think contact lenses are more like copper T! It may not always be the best thing for everyone…Best of luck to you!

    My daughter has just bought eclipse contacts; black with a ring of fire. They are so beautiful.
