Do you ever, like, just question everything about your own face and body and entire personality? I mean, maybe I'm just stressed or whatever, but lately, when I look in the mirror, I melt into a warm puddle of self-loathing.

It's during these times that I tend to fixate on THE ONE THING I could do that would totally make me feel beautiful and perfect. In the past, I've convinced myself that lip injections, spray tans, or a perm would be my true fix but I've never gone through with them. Right now, I'm pretty positive that color contact lenses would make me legit dreamy, and I think I might actually do it. And they're less permanent than a spray tan or a perm.

Okay, real talk: I'm nice-looking, but I would be even nicer-looking if I looked a bit more like a husky puppy, don't you think? I've always dreamed of piercing blue eyes and Alcon AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses might be able to make my dreams come true. In nine different colors, ranging from natural hues to piercing, vibrant shades, these lenses seem like my ticket to a fun, new look I've been craving.

Alcon AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses are a fun way to switch up your look for a short amount of time. I mean, how many times can I pile on the bold eyeshadow or false lashes? Nah, I wanna step my game up for a big night out with some blue eyes! Or maybe green!

Just imagine how hot it would be to do a simple eye, a red lip, and a totally new eye color. Bold color contact lenses in lieu of bold eye makeup is the next big thing. You heard it here first, friends!

My new fun way to pass the time is to insert my face into the Alcon AIR OPTIX® COLORS Color Studio online and see how I look with different eye colors, in different makeup looks.

I'm leaning towards the more subtle Blue, but the Brilliant Blue is neat as well. I also think I could rock the Gemstone Green. My dad has green eyes, and I've always been like, "Hey, you couldn't pass along those genetics while you were busy making sure I inherited your bad back and corny sense of humor?"

With no eye makeup, the vibrant contact lens colors are gorgeously intense. See...


With a cat-eye and a red lip, the Sterling Gray contact lenses are sort of fun in a sexy, dark kind of way, right?

The Color Studio is super-fun and easy to use, and you can even turn your face into this cool lil' poster for Alcon AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses. What if my eyes were the color of Honey? Like that movie no one except me saw in 2003.

The best part about Alcon AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses is, even though you need a prescription from your eye doctor, you can wear these whether or not you need vision correction. Their 3-in-1 color technology means the contact lenses come gorgeous, multi-tonal and realistic-looking hues rather than the one-shade contacts you've come to associate with horror movies or tacky mall shops.

You can even use Alcon AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses to simply enhance the color your eyes already are. If you wish your eyes were just a bit bluer or maybe a slightly lighter shade of brown, these lenses are what you're looking for.

Playing with the online Color Studio was so much fun, it actually made me feel better about myself and helped me get out of that self-image slump I found myself in earlier today. ALSO, on the website, you can take a personality test to find out what eye color is right for you. I'm a sucker for anything that offers me an identity I can cling to. It told me my eye color should be green, because of these reasons:

I'm thoroughly convinced that I need some of these contact lenses, and you probably do, too. I love to enhance every other aspect of my appearance—why not my eye color, too?

Don’t forget! You need to have a prescription to wear AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses. Don’t sleep in these lenses, and don’t share them with your friends. Ask your eye doctor for complete wear, care and safety information.
