Are they wearing contacts in Dune?

While in some movies and television, the actors wear colored contacts, the team for Dune opted to add the blue eye color in post-production. If you want to cosplay a Dune character you could use Dune blue contacts to get a similar effect.

Did Dune use contacts or CGI?

In the second Dune movie, they used AI technology to highlight the character’s eyes in a bright blue color. This was designed to save time but actually changed the eye color of some of the characters that should not have blue eyes which then had to be removed.

Why do Dune character’s eyes turn blue?

In the Dune universe, the character’s eyes turn blue when they have been using ‘spice’. This is a substance found on their planet that enhances brain function.

Why were the eyes less blue in Dune 2?

The eyes are less blue in Dune 2 because the post-production team used different technology to add blue coloring to the actor’s eyes. The algorithm was programmed to color the Fremen’s eyes blue but it did not always differentiate between eyes and colored some of the other characters with blue eyes which then had to be removed. 

What do Fremen eyes look like?

In the book, the blue eyes are described as covering the entire eye; this means that the iris, sclera, and pupil should all have a blue tint. However, to keep their human emotions, the actors in the Dune movie only had colored irises which were added in post-production. There is also some debate as to what shade of blue the eyes should be. The Fremen eyes could have looked very different if you interpret from the book that they had a dark blue tint covering the entire eye.

If you are cosplaying a Dune character, it is more practical to ensure that you can still see so we recommend choosing Dune blue eyes contacts with clear pupil holes. The top matches for Dune contact lenses are:

  • Blue Super Sky Colored Contact Lenses
  • Blue Manson Colored Contact Lenses
  • Blue Angelic Colored Contact Lenses
  • Blue UV Colored Contact Lenses
  • Aqua Blue Ice Walker Colored Contact Lenses

How did Paul’s eyes turn blue in Dune 2?

Paul’s eyes turn blue in Dune 2 once he starts consuming spice which is found on Arrakis. It is documented in the book and film that in the Dune universe consuming spice changes your eye color to blue. In Dune lore, you must have a vast quantity of spice before it changes your eye color.

You can achieve the look of Dune eyes with blue contact lenses. Some other ideas for blue eyes include:

  • Aqua Mermaid Colored Contact Lenses
  • Blue Blizzard Colored Contact Lenses
  • Blue Crystal Colored Contact Lenses
