Halloween Makeup Ideas With Contacts

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons and Halloween is the best excuse in the year to get inspired and dress up! I was recently was contacted by Vision Direct and asked if i would like to create a blog post wearing a pair of their Halloween style contact lenses in whatever creative way i wanted to.
The fact i hadn't delved into my Special FX makeup box or had fun with face paints in a while made me jump at the idea.

First off their selection is incredible with too so much to choose from however i managed to narrow it down to 3 in which i couldn't decide and therefor asked them to do so for me! They sent me the vibrant green Lizard Eye style lenses which i immediately came up with 3 different ideas. The simple cat style makeup, the pretty Poison Ivy makeup and the gory Zombie makeup (Find out how to create the ZOMBIE look here). I figured covering all 3 aspects of gore, pretty & popular makeup would give people more of an idea of what to be this Halloween. 

The contact lenses themselves are pretty versatile lenses when it comes to styles of makeup and they really do make a difference to the overall end look which is why I've attached a small photo of the "before" contact lenses in a couple photos. 
When using them with the cat eye makeup you can see they practically bring together the whole look and because the makeup is quite basic the vivid boldness and sharp shaped pupils really attract your attention. 
They also made the biggest difference to the Zombie makeup as the look is very dull, worn & basically pretty darn dead and so your eyes do tend to disappear with the amount of makeup, so adding a sinister bright contact lens just completes the look.

Before i was sent these contacts i wouldn't of really chosen to wear any for Halloween but I've realized especially from the photos how much of difference they make to the overall end look and how easy/ comfortable they are to wear.

Hope you all feel inspired!
