They Are Completely Opaque
As our video below shows, the lenses have a completely opaque centre. This means the lenses will cover your pupil. This can be great if you want to completely cover your eyes as the block colouration on the opaque contact lenses can offer more coverage than a standard pair of lenses, however, it will limit vision. If you enjoy sensory deprivation or are looking to limit the amount of light that reaches your eye, then the blind effect lenses can be useful for more than just costumes.
They Will Obscure Your Vision
When in your eyes, it will be hard to see out of these no vision contact lenses. The pupil coverage will make it harder to see. This can make them an impractical choice for parties and nights out as your vision will be significantly limited. The different colours allow varying levels of light to pass through but all the colours cause restricted vision.
If your heart is set on these solid contact lenses, then maybe they would be more suited to a photoshoot or quick snap before you head out to a Halloween party. Or, why not try a half and half look that only features a single blind contact lens in one eye?
Unless you are wearing them for a photoshoot, we always recommend wearing one blind effect lens if you are heading out in your costume. This will allow you to have full vision in your other eye while still giving the eerie effect of the blind contact lenses. Check out this perfect example that looks just as awesome as wearing two blind effect lenses. For her aquatic warrior character, @makeupmadhouse has used a single white contact lenses no pupil to add to her SFX scar.
For a less opaque blind style, our mesh contact lenses have a similar effect. The entirety of the pupil and iris design is covered with transparent squares. This style of contact lens can give an alternative blind effect that is more friendly and practical to use.
These styles are both gory and chilling in all of the right ways! @typical_white_girl_sfx’s super creepy glazed-over-eye look takes this Red Riding Hood style to a whole new level.
They Look Incredible
As our talented affiliates have shown time and time again, our blind contact lenses no pupil can look incredible when put to good use. It’s hard to pick a favourite, but we do love the striking red devil makeup from the very talented @rupsashan! This captures the effect of the blind lenses in a truly creative way. Check out the link and give her a follow for more amazing work!
The Grey Blind Coloured Contacts are a super creepy shade that gives a zombie infection vibe. Check out @mulan_mtz’s incredible SFX virus makeup to see just how freaky these lenses can look.
There are plenty of ways to style the White Blind Coloured Contacts. The blank eye design can be paired with spooky Halloween costumes but also suit ethereal SFX makeup, just like this ghost makeup by @hollymurraymakeup.
They Are Easier To Wear Than Sclera Lenses
Some opt for full sclera contact lenses when aiming for the full blank eye effect. These contacts can be harder to wear and look after when compared to a normal-sized coloured contact lens. If you are new to contact lenses and want a full-on effect, then our blind lenses are more manageable and fun to use. Choose these as your first-time sclera alternative, and see how you get on with the coloured contacts.
