Moreover, we owe it to top contact lenses brands that have brought a revolutionary twist by creating so many cool colors and textures. Of course, makeup plays a vital role too.
It is safe to state that the increase of costume lenses such as white contact lenses has played a crucial role in transforming cosplays, Halloween as well as dress-up party looks.
The most popular colors this year were white and red lenses. Hence, whether you need a quick and easy transformation or a full fledge themed look, here’s a complete guide on using white colored lenses.
Different White Contacts to choose from
Let us begin by discussing different types of white colored lenses available in the market. You can choose your favorite to create haunting characters accordingly.
Mesh White Lenses
Mesh contact lenses cover the entire iris and pupil. Interestingly just like the name depicts, mesh lenses have a small grid-like pattern and give off a very cool effect. Moreover, since they are patterned, they completely cover your natural eye color whether it is dark or light. They will showcase a light bluish to gray result.
Block White Lenses
The block lenses own a solid one tone white color. Apparently, they reside nicely over the iris and do not show your natural eye color. Even if you have dark brown eyes, white contacts will cover the original color completely. However, the hole over the pupil will show a black dot, helping you see just like any other lenses.
These lenses give off a very scary, sinister look.
Pattern or outlined Lenses
Patterned white lenses usually have a nice thick outline, mostly black which is perfect for various Halloween looks. If you want to create a nice undead corpse look or an infected creature look, these patterned lenses are perfect for you.
