Enhancing my eyes with contact lenses

When I initially heard about the 1-day Acuvue Define contact lenses in Shimmer and Natural Sparkle I was instantly interested in finding out more.

Unlike coloured contacts that change your eye and even face quite drastically I love that these simply enhance what you already have by making them sparkle or shimmer more. I use makeup to improve what I already have and thought it would be a great way to further enhance my eyes.

I have never worn contact lenses so I booked in for a free consultation at Boots to try on the contact lenses, learn how to apply them and decide if they were right for me. Although it took me a few tries to get the contact lenses in the first time the people are Boots were really helpful and I was surprised that you really can’t feel that the contacts are in (I’m sure all you contact wearers know what I’m talking about). It’s quite nice that when I choose to wear them instead of my glasses I not only have the benefit of not wearing glasses but they also define my eyes more.

I tried on the Sparkle and the Shimmer but decided that Sparkle was the one for me as it has a brightening effect by adding luminosity to the eyes without making it obvious that you are wearing any contacts. Shimmer added much more depth and intensity. It’s a great way to enhance your eyes without anyone noticing, a little eyelash curler which are the perfect tool to opening up your eyes, the contact lenses are the perfect way to draw even more attention to your eyes. I have recently uploaded a video featuring a really natural makeup look where I shared a few tips on how to wear a very natural makeup look but still accentuate your best features and where I am also wearing these contacts.
