Bigger eyes with contact lenses
The obsession among East Asian women for large eyes has meant plenty of business for such diverse industries as plastic surgery, and lash curler and mascara manufacturers. Now contact lens makers get in on the act.
Acuvue's new lenses for the Asian market, the 1-Day Acuvue Define, claim to give wearers the look of bigger, brighter eyes. It works by means of a dark ring on the lens that gives definition to the iris.
FreshKon's Alluring Eyes also claim to give you bigger, brighter eyes. Again, it works by outlining the iris. Alluring Eyes comes in brown and black.
Lastly, there's Clearvue's BIG eyes 2, which comes in a variety of colours. The website doesn't explain how it works, but presumably it's by means of the same kind of optical illusion.
