Grinch Contact Lenses For Your Grinch Costume DIY

Grinch Contact Lenses For Your Grinch Costume DIY

When dressing up in a costume this Christmas you could choose a classic Snowman, Reindeer or Santa Claus outfit or you could try something new with a Grinch Costume DIY. Why not try out a pair of Grinch contact lenses to complete your own mean green character?

How The Grinch Stole Christmas is an original story by Dr. Seuss which follows the Grinch’s plans to ruin Whoville’s festive celebrations. It has been adapted several times for the screen. Many of the makeup looks our affiliates produce are based on Jim Carrey’s portrayal of the Grinch in the 2000 film ‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas’. More recently Illumination has released an animated version of The Grinch (2018) with the voice of Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role.

With some makeup and Grinch contact lenses, you can easily create a Grinch Costume DIY. Grinch costumes usually use green, white or yellow contact lenses but you can also use white eyes. Base your look on Jim Carrey's character from 'The Grinch Who Stole Christmas' the 2018 animated film, or the original book.

Let’s take a look at some Grinch Who Stole Christmas costume ideas from top Instagram SFX makeup artists.

@hollymurraymakeup has re-created the Jim Carrey Grinch costume of the young Grinch. This includes his Christmas jumper which Holly has masterfully painted on. This amazing Grinch makeup gives Holly a chance to show off her acting skills – check out the video below!


Holly’s Jim Carrey The Grinch makeup is so incredibly detailed. Take a closer look at her work on The Grinch costume below. For this makeup, Holly has used our Yellow Avatar Coloured Contacts.
 

@fx_freak has created her own cartoon paint style for this fun Grinch makeup. The intense deep wrinkles and gruesome yellow teeth make her The Grinch makeup unique. Like the Jim Carrey Grinch makeup, @fx_freak has used a prosthetic nose and paired it with our classic Yellow Avatar Contact Lenses, which are a popular choice for Grinch cosplays.

@artbybmazz has chosen a fun cartoon makeup style with a creepy twist. This portrayal of the Grinch is similar to the art style in the original Dr Suess book but with a scary toothy grin. While Grinch eyes have been depicted as a range of different colours, we love the cartoon quality it gives when you pair some classic White Halloween Contact Lenses with your costume.

For an even more unusual style, check out the talent of @summer.stockwell. Her Grinch is bursting through to the surface in the freaky illusion. Do you have an inner Grinch to release? In the latest film, the Grinch has green eyes, similar to @summer.stockwell with her use of natural Green Mystic Contact Lenses. As you can see you don’t have to use Halloween contact lenses to create your character – green contact lenses will also look great!

While the Grinch is often shown as a freaky character, there’s no reason why he can’t have a glamorous makeover. @misspoppylocks has created a stunning paintbrush makeup style of the Grinch and we have never seen the Grinch looking more fabulous! @misspoppylocks is wearing our most popular Grinch eye contacts, Yellow Avatar Lenses.

If you would like to simplify your costume then why not buy or make a Grinch mask and add your Grinch contact lenses to your outfit as a finishing touch? We would love to see more of your Christmas creations. Whether you have created a Grinch, a Who or a classic Christmas character be sure to share a picture with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
