When I was in high school in the 80s, color contacts first came out - and I had a friend that worked in the eyeglass store at the mall. We all frantically rushed over to try the new shades. This brown-eyed girl always knew her life would be drastically different with beautiful blue eyes. But I looked possessed. It was downright scary.
Hopefully, they've changed lots over the years. But at least it's easier to experiment now regardless. At www.FreshLookColorStudio.com, you can upload a close-up photo, pick your best shade (after trying them on), then print a coupon to bring to the eye doctor for a free pair.
