Air Optix Colors: Green Eyes, Yeah The Spotlight, Shines Upon You

In today’s adventures, I’m trying out my latest pair of Air Optix Color contacts, Gemstone Green. I absolutely loved my last pair of Brilliant Blue contacts (see the post here) and how they dramatically changed my look. I have hazel/green eyes so adding these Air Optix Colors to my natural eyes is more of an enhancement. Here’s a breakdown on what makes these contacts unique: They use 3-in-1 color technology to define, transform, and brighten. Comfort; as a n00b to wearing contacts, I’ve learned they’re really comfortable. I forget I’m wearing them until I look in the mirror and then I’m like WHOA. Breathability – Even if work for cosmetic reasons (like me!) they’re great for daily wear. Beauty – I love wearing glasses and now contacts are a cool way to enhance my look. They’re used by celebs and a fav of Nina Dobrev. There’s an array of colors available and…

Blue Eyed Baby: New Air Optix Color Contacts

When was the last time you had your eyes checked? For me it was longer than I could remember so when Air Optix Colors invited me to visit an eye doctor for an exam and look into color contacts I was all in. Depending on your age and risk factors, adults should see an eye doctor every 1-3 years. Over the holidays I saw Dr. Acs at Toronto Eye Care. Turns out I’ve still got healthy eyes and don’t need a prescription. I was super impressed with the technology they used to creep inside my eye, look at my retina, and take images. It’s really been a long time because I don’t ever remember having photos of my eyes taken by an eye care professional. Here’s a look at the back of my eye and the retina. I was a little freaked out when I saw them but Dr. Acs confirmed this is exactly…

Fashion | Look Into My Eyes, Air Optix Colors Canadian Launch

Last week I went to the Air Optix Colors launch w/ Cohn & Wolfe. I got to pick out a pair of colour contacts and have my makeup done. This photo is really close, I hope it doesn’t scare you lol. Reminds me I’ve aged! Those lines are from lots of smiles though. My usual hazel green eyes were transformed w/ this vivid Sterling Grey. I’m not a usual contacts wearer but these guys come in a variety of colours and last 30 days.  There’s a really bright blue I’d love to try! You can check them out at airoptixcolors.ca Loved this fur. Sadly it’s not mine, was just there for the photo booth. Quick reminder that Rudsak Canada is having a sample sale starting tomorrow at 99 Sudbury and there will be heaps of leather and fur goodies. I’ll have a sneak peek for you tomorrow! <3 CASIE

Live in Colour, Brown Eyed Girl

When I was young we used to go camping every summer near Orangeville. All the Kiwis and Aussies my parents knew got together for the Down Under Summer Games where we had a traditional Maori Hāngi, gumboot toss, and my sister and I performed with the Maori Culture Club. It was so much fun! My Grandpa Doug converted a school bus into a camper with kitchen and we drove that up a few times singing oldies the whole way. Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison was one of our favourites. Air Optix Colors encourages you to Live In Color and as you know, that’s something true in my life too. My closet is full of bright colours and sometimes my hair too. Nina Dobrev also wears them, and takes selfies. After trying almost* all the Air Optix Color contacts the last few months, I gotta say, I like brown eyes too. Tried them last…

Heteros Chroma, One Blue Eye + One Brown Eye

When I was growing up I remember a girl from my modelling school who was really beautiful and she had two different coloured eyes. I always thought it was so cool. Having two different eye colours is a genetic mutation (a beautiful one) called Heterochromia (Greek: heteros ‘different’ + chroma ‘color’[1]). It’s a result of the relative excess or lack of melanin (a pigment). I kinda always wanted to have one blue and one brown so I made it happen. Took a pair of Blue and one pair of and Brown Air Optix Color contacts and popped one in each eye. As soon as I tried them on I had to do a double-take. I looked so different! I wonder if anyone would notice? Do you know anyone with different coloured eyes? It can be caused by all kinds of things and there are a ton of variations on Wikipedia. In interesting news, there’s a whole…

April Showers, Blue Skies, Gray Eyes

Notice a difference? I tried out a new pair of Air Optix Color contacts in Gray. I’ve had a fun time trying all the different colours the last few months. I love changing my look, depending on how long you’ve been reading I’ve had a ton of hair styles, different hair colours, and fashions.  Lots of different styles. The contacts last 30 days and are a-ok for daily wear. Here’s a few of the colours in the Subtle collections. There’s also a line of Vibrant colours you can check out at airoptixcolors.ca. At first I was a real rookie at putting them in and taking them out but now I’ve got it down to a science. I’ve also found them to be comfortable in that, once I get them in, I can wear them all day without bothering my eyes. This was new to me as I’ve never been a contacts wearer.  They’re light…
