Coloured contact lenses set to become more popular

The popularity of coloured contact lenses is set to boom over the next two weeks as people look to complete their Halloween outfits.

In recent years, there has been a huge increase in the number of people using coloured contact lenses as they look to emulate characters from the Twilight films, including vampire Edward Cullen.

This year looks set to be no different, with official contact lens retailers reporting that the demand for coloured contact lenses rises significantly in the run-up to October 31st.

And, with the new Twilight film Breaking Dawn – Part 1 out this year, the trend looks set to permeate New Year's Eve fancy dress ideas and beyond.

Another key Halloween fancy dress trend could be the zombie look, as people look to emulate the undead hordes from the hit series The Walking Dead.

The show's makeup experts recently revealed that special contact lenses are used during filming to make the zombies look as convincing as possible.
