As you can tell, I am wearing coloured contact lenses in the photos above. Vision Direct kindly sent me some to try, and they even chose the colour for me (grey). I was a bit apprehensive about it and when they contacted me, I told them that I’d try them before but I wasn’t very keen. I tried green ones before – literally for 30 seconds – and I didn’t like them at all because they made me look really STUPID! Like a zombie! However, the grey ones that the team at Vision Direct have chosen for me are really subtle in real life. They seem to have shown up a lot brighter than they are because I used the flash on my camera today! I’m sure some of you are experiencing the same issue at the moment, but I can not get any decent photos without flash because of the dark dull cloud that the country is currently under! Anyway, I can sense that these coloured lenses will be my new obsession and I can’t wait to stock up! I am always keen to try out new things, especially anything that will give me a new look. I would dye my hair a different colour every week if it wasn’t so harmful!
I know not everyone can put things in their eyes – I really struggled the first time I tried contacts – but if you’re ok with putting contacts in, I think it is such a fun way to change your look. It is important to find a shade to suit your complexion and even hair colour but the guys at Vision Direct are really helpful, and they are experts at this so they will help if you have any queries. Even if you buy a shade close to your natural eye colour, it will still enhance them and give you brighter twinkle in your eyes! The ones I have in today are the Freshlook ONE-DAY coloured lenses which you can get with or without prescription. These are daily disposable lenses. I like wearing glasses so I got them without prescription. For some reason, they are much more comfortable and moisturising than my prescription contacts! I have had them in for about 9 hours now and I haven’t had any problems at all. I am going to be trying the colourmaker lenses soon, which are a monthly disposables, but I need to ask and make sure how to store these because I’ve never had monthlies before.
