Beauty trends are all about new ways to heighten your look, hopefully requiring minimal effort in the process. The latest beauty fad hitting the catwalks and making an appearance on starlit red carpets is colored contacts in many different colors and patterns.
May seem awkward, but if you think about it, we change practically everything else about our appearance. We alter our clothes, hair color, makeup and some dabble in plastic enhancements, so why not our eye color? Even if you’re not about altering your appearance on the daily, changing it up every once in awhile is exciting and keeps you fresh!
Fashion designers like Ralph Lauren and Emilio Pucci are taking advantage of the emerging colored contacts trend, using the new beauty accessory as an additional art tool to style each model’s runway appearance. Celebrities like Selena Gomez, Kanye West, Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner have all been sporting colored contacts to events as honorable as the Met Gala. Selena Gomez and the Jenner sisters preferred natural color tones in their colored contacts selections, helping transform these brown-eyed beauties into hazel or blue eyed visions that stun with one glare.
People use colored contacts to look younger too. In 2011, Darren Peshak, Negar Semmanknejad, Donald Hoffman and Pete Foley, associates in the Department of Cognitive Science at the University of California at Irvine, did a study on the preliminary evidence that the limbal ring influences facial attractiveness. The study found that a person with larger and blacker limbal rings (the dark circle around the iris or center of your eye) was preferred over a person with less noticeable eyes, or smaller and lighter limbal rings. Results were near identical for both men and women.
This is one of the many reasons why customers love Funky Eyes’ Big Eye collection. Our line of Big Eyes colored contacts have a 15mm outer ring for a thick, dark inner iris and fades into your favorite color tones near your sclera (the white part of your eye). No matter if you have dark eyes or light eyes, any of the Big Eye colored contacts will improve your look for either daytime or nighttime.
