Colored contacts are no stranger to Halloween. Some of us even wear them on a daily basis. A single white-out contact or a pair of circle lenses are a common item to find in the makeup bag of the ultra-goth or the super kawaii. Many more of us wear them on occasion just to change up our eye color, and while shades of green and honey brown may be very well for any other time of the year, October is when even the most conservative eyes look toward the wacky world of theatrical contacts. Take one look at Brittany C.'s CallowLily look above and you'll want to view your costume through a new lens.
Colored contacts may be the ultimate in DIY special effects cosmetics, but in the end they are still a medical device—confusing to purchase and risky to wear. Keep your Halloween and your vision in 20/20 shape with our colored contact breakdown.
