DALLAS, Dec 15, 2008 / FW/ — What makes celebrities look so good on the red carpet? The dress, the make up? Of course – celebrities have whole harems of stylists and fashion advisors to guarantee perfection. However, there is one item in almost every celebrity’s beauty accessory kit that anyone can get without spending all of one’s savings. Yes, we are talking about the color contact lens and the glamorous effect it can have.
Penelope Cruz wears them and Hayden Panettiere has confessed her absolute addiction to them. Wearing color contact lenses has become an outspoken fashion trick amongst celebrities. It has even come so far that fashion line Dior released its own limited edition color contacts – Dior Eyes. And while these contacts cost a fortune, and are elegantly decorated with an outer diamond lining and the Dior “D” trademark, regular color contacts can be purchased online or at your local optician at an affordable price.
Color contacts come in two tints.
1. The enhancement tint
2. The color tint
Depending on what look you are going for these tints may either enhance your eye color or completely change them. It is known that many celebrities use color contacts to match their outfit. For that they use enhancement tinted color contact lenses that are available in many different colors.
Some celebrities like Hayden Panettiere have beautiful dark eyes. For them color tinted contact lenses are a great option since it is nearly impossible to highlight and enhance dark colors. Panettiere has been spotted wearing spectacular light blue and green color tints, completely differentiating from her original brown-green eye color.
Color contacts can safely used as a beauty accessory. And whether you want to change your eye color or simply enhance it, color contact lenses can be worn even if you do not have a vision disorder. But remember, you still require a prescription from a licensed eye doctor and a proper fitting!
