I’ve been asked a number of times now about what colored contact lenses I use when I’m out and about. In fact the first person who ever specifically noticed my contact lenses when I first began wearing them was my first cousin, Gab V., two years ago at his older brother’s wedding. I first asked him if I looked okay or if I overdid my makeup as a bridesmaid. He said “You look nice, your eyes…wait, are you wearing contacts?” I confessed LOL and he smiled and said back to me ” ‘Coz if you are they’re nice, it’s not like whoa those other scary contacts…it makes a difference but it looks like your eyes pa rin, enhanced lang.” I really strained my brain for the exact words he said without imagining or exaggerating and that’s as close as I remember. I’m so glad I can finally get the word out on what colored lenses I use, sorry it took so long, I know so many of you have been asking. I constantly repurchase Freshlook’s Colorblend enhancers in PURE HAZEL which is like a blond brown that merges with my eye color for a believable wearable effect. I simply must not wear glasses at events and I attend quite a handful so I wear contacts (because my grade is high and different for left and right. The effect of these made me bother to once again wear a pair frequently.

You may recall this overly used “no makeup” makeup selfie of mine (yes it is a DSLR selfie, with both arms) which turned out quite successful as a profile image. I snapped myself before running out the door to leave the house, not realizing I had taken a very good photo with natural light, LOL, and it is an actual selfie. For an instant “Fresh Look” I just pop in my colorblends, curl my lashes like a pro and load them up with a non-clumping, waterproof mascara (both top and bottom)…BAM…eyes to mesmerize.
What’s nice about the Colorblend range is it doesn’t completely cover your natural eye color, it just enhances or tints them with a translucent wash of your chosen hue. So people still see your real eye color behind the lenses. It’s kind of like that instant contrast button on Instagram haha. To be honest Colorblends are not initially the MOST comfortable range of Freshlook (the illuminate line is, I forget I’m wearing contacts with those) but for the visual effect what I do to boost comfort is soak and rinse my Colorblend lenses overnight daily in RENU which is an all-in-one solution, also before first use I soak them overnight.
