A DAY WITH scott barnes
A little while ago I had the opportunity to work with Alcon to promote the AIR OPTIX COLORS contact lenses, but this wasn’t any ordinary project: I got to work with Scott Barnes, Illaria Urbinati, and Lacy Redway, all of whom are celeb go-to’s when it comes to makeup, style, and hair!
The AIR OPTIX COLORS contacts are all about making a statement, whether that statement is a subtle or bold one. My personal favorite color is the Honey, which gives my light brown eyes a sparkling amber look. The colors are split up into two categories: Subtle and Vibrant. The subtle group includes Gray, Blue, Green, Pure Hazel, and Brown, all of which add a very natural hint of a change to any eye color. If you’re feeling a little more daring, you can try the Vibrant shades, which include Sterling Gray, Brilliant Blue, Gemstone Green, and Honey.
Throughout the shoots with Scott, Illaria, and Lacy, the two models on set and I (Neka and Chanel, if you’re reading this, hi and I miss you! They were two of the coolest chicks I’ve met on a job) got to try on a range of different shades from the AIR OPTIX COLORS line. While we changed up our colors, Scott gave us tips for what eyeshadow colors to pair with our contacts, Lacy gave us tips for how to style our hair, and Illaria dressed us in her hand-picked wardrobe pieces.
I have to say it was pretty fun spending a few days just trying on different eye colors! And considering I have sensitive eyes, I was pleased to find that the AIR OPTIX COLORS really let my eyes breath and never irritated them. I used to wear contacts for 13 years before I got corrective surgery, and I remember trying color lenses when I was a teen and how uncomfortable they were. The AIR OPTIX COLORS were totally comfortable even as we changed up makeup looks!
