I change my false lashes on a daily basis. Full? Criss cross? Whispy?
Switching up my eye colour is equally as easy with a pair of coloured contacts. While my standard choice has always been brown, today I’m going pink with these Japanese style lenses as seen in some of my favourite Asian fashion magazines.

Daily disposables are a great option if, like me, you only wear lenses on occasion and do not want to worry about the upkeep and storage. These Princess series lenses come in a slim packaging of 10 pieces per box, one row for the left eye and the other for the right. Individually sealed, they can be broken apart to take for travel.
Trying to break out of my usual brown phase, I opted for pink (no prescription) as it didn’t look to bright and the large clear center would still allow my natural eye colour to show through. The pattern is mostly focused around the outer circumference, sharpening the iris and adding more contrast plus definition. The shading, when worn helps to create a glossy, multidimensional look. With my brown eyes, the pink was not over whelming and added a sweet look, the colour being only visibly obvious in certain lighting.
A very easy to wear series of lenses that produces a more natural but enhanced effect, especially when paired with soft makeup. The pink will give medium to dark eyes a softer, more romantic tint but will remain mostly inperceivable unless you are in bright light. Marketed for everyday wear for a more grown up look than most other circle lenses I think these do just as they say, easy to wear and will fit in well with your everyday wardrobe!
TIPS: I did find these daily disposables to be much softer than other lenses I’ve owned, it was a little more challenging to put them in as the lens kept flipping out or loosing its curved shape as I tried to put them in. As I don’t wear contacts often, this may not be problem for you experts.
