Sometimes you just want to stand out from the crowd and violet contact lenses are a fabulous way to do just that. Violet is a great colour choice because no one has naturally violet eyes. So by wearing violet contacts you instant create an attention-grabbing look. That said, you can find some surprisingly natural-looking violet contact lenses, so you can create anything from a subtle hint of violet to bright neon colour!


Natural-Look Violet Contact Lenses

Although violet is not a naturally occurring eye colour, there are many lenses that use violet in a natural-looking way. They do this by mimicking the patterns and shading found in real eye colours like blue. The results can be stunning and give you beautiful eyes that really stand out. These are three of my favourite natural-look violet contact lenses. They all work with your natural eye colour to produce stunning eyes.

Fantasy Violet Contact Lenses

At the other end of the scale are these amazing fantasy contact lenses. These lenses are perfect for costumes and Halloween. There are endless designs to choose from but these are some of our best-selling violet contacts. The light violet colour is very arresting because it is lighter than most natural eye colours. These lenses really make a statement and will get you noticed anywhere!

Calling all fans of gothic fashion, we have two brand new ranges of gothic contact lenses: Alchemy and UL13. Alchemy Gothic are famous for their gothic jewellery and now they have designed a great range of gothic contact lenses as well. Our new gothic lenses are all manufactured in the UK to ensure superior quality. They are yearly lenses, so you can wear them as many times as you like within one year of opening them. Personally I think we have a great choice of designs, from skulls and vampire lenses to retro designs and fantastic new colours.

Alchemy Gothic Contact Lenses

The main Alchemy range of contact lenses is dedicated to classic gothic motifs like skulls, crosses and dragons. It also features some surprisingly designs such as a beautiful raven contact lens inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s Nevermore. All the designs would be perfect for Halloween but the three shown below are my picks for maximum impact with your Halloween costume. I particularly love the Vampire Moon lenses and the way the bloody surface of the moon stands out.

Using Contact Lens Tweezers

Using Contact Lens Tweezers

If you find it hard to use coloured contact lenses, contact lenses tweezers are such a godsend. They are soft-tipped tweezers that you can use to handle your lenses. Contact lens tweezers make it much easier to handle your lenses and can be very helpful if you are new to wearing contact lenses. You can use them to pick up a lens and put it on your finger, straighten out a folded lens, check a lens for rips or just transfer them from the original contact lens vial to your storage case.

Why use Contact Lens Tweezers?

1. More hygienic than using your fingers


2. Makes it easier to handle your contact lenses


3. Prevents lens rips – especially if you have long nails

In terms of hygiene, you should handle your lenses as little as possible – as well as germs our fingers can transfer eye-irritating particles and skin oils that can damage lenses. Contact lens tweezers on the other hand are easy to keep clean and mean that you handle the lenses less.


Contact lens tweezers have soft tips that are gentle on the lens, so there is less chance of damaging one. This is especially important when you are cleaning your lenses, because it allows you to pick up and rinse your lenses without damaging the lens. It is surprisingly easy to tear a coloured contact lens and I definitely recommend buying a pair of lens tweezers if you are new to wearing contacts.
