Keep With the Christmas Tradition
Everyone loves the traditional Christmas colours of red, green, gold and white. With a pair of coloured contact lenses, you can bring plenty of Christmas costume ideas to life. You can truly get creative with different contact lens colours and styles, and find one that works for you. Here are a few of our Christmas costume ideas that focus on the festive colours of the season.
If you want an ethereal angel look this Christmas, you can utilise some of our orange and yellow lenses to create a golden effect. With a load of corresponding makeup and accessories, you could shine in a golden angel outfit with glistening fiery eyes to match.
If you want to find a new way to reuse your Red Halloween contact lenses, we have plenty of Christmas costume ideas ready for you. You could pair a red lens with a white Halloween contact for a multicoloured jazzy candy cane effect. Place one lens in each eye – remember, it is important to never try to ‘stack’ more than one lens in your eye.

It doesn't get greener than the Grinch! We have plenty of green coloured lenses if you're planning to dress as the iconic Dr Seuss character. Check out our blog to see Grinch makeup ideas and feel your heart grow three sizes.
When it comes to classic Christmas films, Home Alone is always on our festive watch list. Turning your family into characters from the film is sure to get you in the festive spirit. You can all fight it out over who gets to be Kevin or perhaps you would prefer to be The Wet Bandits. @rubymediamakeup gives herself an SFX injuries makeover based on the stunts that happen in the movie in this Home Alone blog.
With our range of cheap and affordable lenses, it is possible to mix and match ideas and styles. Why only pick one festive Christmas colour when you can mix, match and experiment. Go wild and experiment with our various colours and styles. There are no colour rules when it comes to Christmas lights and baubles so go wild and try something new over the Christmas months.
Add a Little Sparkle
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a little sparkle here and there. Our range boasts plenty of glimmer lenses that should add that little something extra to your Christmas cheer. The colours in the mystic and galaxy style include blue, purple, and grey which will bring a whole new finish to your look. With tinsel, lights and stars everywhere, you’ll need this little extra something to help your makeup stand out.
As well as being an integral part of a Christmas costume idea, these lenses would make a perfect addition to any glamorous Christmas night out. The vibrant coloured part of the lens will perfectly match some sparkling festive makeup and a full metallic or sequin dress. If you want to be the centre of attention at this year’s festivities, you can’t go far wrong with a pair of shiny glimmer style lenses!
Ice Is Certainly On the Nice List
Our range of blue coloured lenses will certainly help bring some frosty characters to life. If you want to channel your inner ice queen or unleash the famous Jack Frost then blue is certainly right for you. Some of the simple blue shades such as the Blue Sapphire One Tone or the Blue One Tone coloured lenses can truly produce a steely stare.
If your Christmas costume ideas lead you to become a cold-hearted ice queen, you could pair the Blue Manson coloured contact lenses with your best 'frosted' make-up look. Use plenty of white and metallic cosmetic blue hues to bring the focus to your sharp blue peepers. An elegant dress is a must with this costume and make sure you have plenty of snowflakes covering your entire outfit. It’s certainly an ice cool way to spend Christmas!
