commandingcaptainbooty asked: i was wondering where you got your brown contacts? i have blue eyes and have been looking for a pair that cover up the blue as well as yours do?


Answer:

Hello lovely, thanks for the message :) The brown contacts I had were Honey Brown Freshlook Colorblends. I think I bought them on eBay to get a better price.

Of course, because they’re prescription, they’re more than regular colour contacts. I’m short sighted so I can’t wear fashion lenses. If you have 20/20 vission, you may be able to find cheaper fashion lenses. 

Also, if you looked closely, you could see some blue around my pupils, where the contacts didn’t cover it. It wasn’t all that noticable because my eyes are a very dark blue. But if your eyes are lighter or brighter blue, they may show more around the pupil.

"All eyes, naturally, turned to Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier. The women envied her, the men envied him. That’s really a romantic couple- makes you regret your lost youth..or relive it." -Hedda Hopper, reporting on the after party at the Hollywood Trocadero for the LA premiere of Gone with the Wind, in January 1941
