5 Colored Contact Lenses to Complete Your Halloween Costume
Forget everyday beauty. We’ve decided Kylie Jenner is our Halloween spirit animal. Whether she intends to or not, the youngest Jenner has been super experimental with her looks all year, and has been rocking a couple of styles that most people would only dare to wear one special spooky holiday a year. And the KUWTK’s resident style chameleon has certainly been delivering up Halloween inspo by the truckload recently. Just the other day, she debuted some Morticia Addams-like extensions, which you know would make a killer Halloween look.
Yesterday, King Kylie posted this photo of herself with pale blue gray eyes. Like woah. Is that even you, Kylie? Inspired by the youngest Jenner’s bold look, we’ve decided to round up a few of the coolest, spookiest and most incredible contact lenses you can cop right now for your perfect Halloween look.
1. Solotica Hidrocor Quartzo ($71): Kylie is supposedly sporting this Brazilian contacts brand + shade. Solotica is known for being extremely real-looking, but carries kind of a heavy price tag. Luckily, with proper care, you can wear these for a whole year and not just on Halloween.
2. Twilight Sparkle Anime Eyes ($22): These fun lenses are perfect for if you’re looking to channel your favorite cartoon character. Bonus: These are available with prescription too.
3. Solid Blackout Lenses ($30): These solid blackout lenses definitely give your eyes a spooky-yet-cool effect. Send chills down everyone’s spines with just one dark look.
4. White Cat Eye Lenses ($30): Cat costumes are a dime a doz during Halloween, but you can take your feline getup to the next level with a pair of cat eye contact lenses. Meow.
5. Solotica Soflex Hype in Red ($45): These lenses are perfect for anyone who plans on being a blood-sucking vampire or any other creepy, ghoulish character for the holiday. Red eyes definitely up the scare-factor.
Just a word of warning from the FDA though: “Wearing any kind of contact lenses, including decorative ones, can cause serious damage to your eyes if the lenses are obtained without a prescription or not used correctly.” Also, be sure to only purchase from authorized sources. Check out more info on contact lens safety at the FDA’s website.

It can be intimidating to step out on your own and build a business from the ground up. As part of our collaboration with Office Depot, we're talking with Selfmade alum and solopreneur Colette Lawrence, the faith-based motivator and relationship builder behind The M.E.E. Movement, about ways in which women in business can find success.
B + C: How did you know M.E.E. Movement was your business to start?
The M.E.E Movement represents motivation, empowerment, and encouragement for women. It is what represents me. I did not know at first that it was my business to start, but then the thought of monetizing what I loved came to me. It scared me, however. I registered the business in July 2020 and have been slowly building my wings since.
B + C: What's one strategy that's helped you start your business?
Thinking through and researching what the requirements are to start my business, and then asking questions of people who are in the business. Not all advice worked; however, it helped me to figure out what I needed to do and not to do.
B + C: Did you always know life coaching would be your entrepreneurial path?
(Smiles) No, I did not. I 'stumbled" on it. I knew that people were always coming to me for advice and I found that I loved having conversations with them, especially with women, young and old.
B + C: What was your most valuable takeaway from Selfmade?
My most valuable takeaway was the first day of training: Get out of your own way. There were a lot of great moments and important takeaways from every presenter. However, getting out of my own way, pushing past doubts, was for me my most valuable takeaway. Doing something that I had never done before took courage. If I do not focus on what is happening with me mentally then I cannot deliver to my clients successfully.
B + C: What's one piece of advice you would give to female entrepreneurs on the brink of starting?
Get out of your head. You have something to offer. You have what you need to succeed so go ahead and do it.
B + C: How do you stay motivated?
I stay motivated by listening to music and listening to motivational speakers, and sometimes someone will just reach out and talk about the impact that I made in their life. That adds the extra juice or sauce I need to pummel through the day.
B + C: What's your best organizational tip?
Keep a diary and journal. It's the best way for me to keep organized and it also provides a source motivation as I record not only my "losses" but my wins as well.
B + C: Who inspires you in the entrepreneurial space?
Shirley Toliver – She motivates and empowers and makes me always want to show up.
B + C: What has receiving the Office Depot scholarship to Selfmade done to help you start or grow your business?
The scholarship was a blessing in that all the areas that were covered offered valuable information that I needed, from social media to HR. As a new business owner, I needed to know this to increase my own personal awareness in what it takes to run a successful business. The candidness of the presenters made it easy to see myself in their shoes and helped me to realize that I can also get there.
