It’s all in the Eyes!

“The eyes are the mirror of the soul and reflect everything that seems to be hidden; and like a mirror, they also reflect the person looking into them.”

― Paulo Coelho

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.

    Your eyes look absolutely stunning. I wear contact lenses in order to see but I wonder if I could get some coloured ones that make my eyes stand out. Interesting idea…Nikki x

    It’s all in your eyes for sure! The contacts deepen your eyes for sure while keeping them as natural as they are. For a fact, boldening the eyes with great makeup while keeping the lips nude is a great trick especially if you love your eyes. Though for me, I concentrate on the eyes and lips too…hugs!

    I wore glasses as a child but if I needed them now I would try out contacts. They do make your eyes more dramatic. It would be nice to have blue eyes at least for a day.

    I like that you choose to accentuate your natural beauty and went for contact lenses that were only a few shades lighter than your natural colour. I would quite like to try green contact lenses at some point,I do love a pair of green eyes. I also liked what you said about how expressive eyes can be and its true.

    That colour is not a drastic change but wow what a difference it makes! I personally can’t use contacts though…I’m afraid to touch my eyes like that lol!

    Wow your eyes look memorizing, I don’t wear glasses or contact lenses. But I do like the sound of them and tell my mum about them.

    Coloured contact lenses are now available for dark coloured eyes nad look so much more natural when in. They have come along along way.

    I love Paulo Coelho, he’s got a way with words! Love the look you have with those contacts and make up ; ) I’ll keep these in mind whenever I need them!

    You are so right about the eyes! I wear contact lens to correct my vision, but I feel even those make my eyes more blue (their natural color is blue). I notice the difference when I don’t have my contacts in, as my eyes seem more dull!

    Your eyes are beautiful! My eyes are brown too. I used to have green colored contacts but I could never get used to them! :/

    Your eyes are beautiful, and those contact lenses look really natural and flatter your complexion. I love dark brown eyes, they are such deep beautiful dramatic pools of depth.

    I don’t need to tell you that you have great eyes and the make-up you’re wearing is enhancing that. The lenses look great – actually they don’t look like lenses at all. I’d love to wear lenses from time to time as a fashion statement – but it’s hopeless, cannot get them in no matter how hard I try to relax and not closing my eyes – h o p e l e s s…
