Halloween is just a few months away and if you like to plan ahead of time, then this is the perfect time to get everything in order. From your costume to your makeup, it has to be perfect to scare the creeps out of everyone.
With the passage of time, the art of getting ready for Halloween has changed a lot and most notably, it is the introduction of costume lenses that has been the game changer. They not only give a very realistic and eerie look to your costume, they actually change your overall persona.
Nowadays, it is the selection of these costume lenses that dictates your choice of Halloween get-up. Out of all the costume lenses available in the market, black contact lenses are the most popular.
From black mini sclera 17mm contact lensesto black-out lenses, you have a lot to choose from and here we share the top 4 lenses that will make you stand out in a crowd!
Black Spiral Lenses
Who hasn’t seen the movie ‘Saw’ with its famous character Jigsaw? The first part of this franchise was released in 2004 and made quite a splash in the horror movie genre, particularly owing to its unique storyline and the main antagonist, Jigsaw. Jigsaw was so popular that it was given a separate storyline in a movie that was released in 2017.
Dressing up as Jigsaw is one of the most popular choices for Halloween and trust us, it is not as difficult as it seems. You will need to prepare for it, though!
- Prep up your face by using white face paint mixed with foundation to give a smooth and finished look.
- Use lots of black eyeshadow to fill up your upper eyelid and once you are done, line your lower lids with the same eye shadow. Line your eyes with jet black kohl and use the same kohl to darken your brows.
- Accentuate the apples of your cheek by contouring and use red face paint to add the trade mark ‘Jigsaw’ spirals.
- Use bright red lipstick on your lips and exaggerate your natural lip line a little. You can add shadows going down from your lips to the chin by using grey eyeshadow.
- The most important part of your makeup is to put on the black spiral lenses to give you that scary look.
Black Sclera Lenses
Another popular trend amongst Halloween party-goers is the black sclera lenses. As the name indicates, these black lenses totally cover the entire cornea and the sclera of the eye, but rest assured, you will be able to see through them as the center of the lens has an opening for the pupil of the eye. These lenses give a very freaky and spine-tingling look and best of all, these black lenses are very versatile as their use is not restricted to dressing up as a specific character.
From an anime doll to an alien to a demon, you can wear these lenses however you want! Wearing the lenses does the job and trust us, there won’t be a need to sit in the makeup chair for hours to get the look you want. All you need to do is to get your outfit ready and let your black lenses do the talking!
Black Mini Sclera Lenses
Just like black sclera lenses, black mini sclera 17mm contact lenseshave also become very popular. That said, there is a difference between the two. While the sclera lenses completely cover the cornea and the eye, the mini sclera lenses cover the entire cornea and a portion of the sclera, leaving a bit of white in the eye which gives a chilly look to the eye.
Unlike their larger counterpart, these lenses are not as overbearing and can be actually used if you want to ramp up your look for the day. Black mini sclera lenses are also used to create an anime doll look and if you want to get a step ahead, you can use these lenses if you are getting ready as a zombie.
Red Rage Mini Sclera Lenses
Although these lenses are named red rage mini sclera lenses, the red color only forms a part of the lens. These lenses have both black and red and create a hair-raising effect if paired with the perfect costume and makeup. These lenses are generally used to create a blood-thirsty vampire look
This means that you will have minimal makeup to do as the lenses steal the show for you. These lenses got a lot of boost with the release of the Twilight Saga and these lenses, in particular, are used when imitating Bella’s character from the movie.
