Getting Your Contacts
Ordering Contacts online is a tough process. There are so many sellers and colors, you really don't know what you are getting
There are many ads running on Social Media for fun colored contacts
Most of the contacts are for entertainment use only. They are safe to wear for a few hours a day but not intended to be used all day every day
Buying these novelty contacts is an okay thing to do but, knowing how to care for them once you finally receive that little grey e-packet from China.is the most important part
Caring for your new lenses
What you will need
- A set of cosmetic lenses
- A contact storage case
- Saline solution made for soft contacts
- Open your new lenses
- Wash your hands
- Take lenses from Packaging
- Place lenses in storage case with fresh saline solution
- Let SOAK overnight in the closed storage case before attempting to insert into the eye. This is important to avoid eye irritation and infections
- Wash your hands thoroughly and rinse well. Do not have soap residue, lotion or cosmetics on your hands when handling your colored contact lenses
- Open one side of the storage case and remove the contact with your fingertips or with the provided plastic tweezers that came with your set. Be gentle (like when you are playing the game of OPERATION)
- Squeeze fresh saline solution over your lenses to act as a second rinse and to lubricate the lens. This ensures that there is no residue left from packaging or storing and that there are no dust particles on the lens that could scratch your natural eye
- Place the Lens on the tip of your finger curved side up - video below shows how to tell if the lens is inside out or not (most common mistake)
- Bring your finger to your eye and gently use another finger to pull your eyelid open slightly
- Place the lens onto your eye without touching your eyeball with your fingers. Very gently lay the lens onto your eye and let it fall in place. Use patience
- Blink a few times to get the lens in position
- If the lens feels dry or itchy, remove it and rinse then repeat the application process
- Once you have the lens in place, repeat with other eye and dazzle yourself in the mirror with your newly found good looks
- Drop a Selfie - send us a copy on Instagram @skulldaze
It takes a little getting used to but once you learn how and get used to wearing them, they can be a really fun way to accent your eyes and really make your makeup looks pop.

The most common infection caused by wearing contacts is called keratitis. Keratitis is an infection of the cornea, the clear domed window in front of the eye. You can develop this type of infection if you do not clean your contacts properly. - Med.edu

To be completely honest, the YouTuber featured below is not our personal customer but, he is a very good representation of what contacts can do for you in your own videos and really, it was just an excuse to make you all hear this vulgar cover of a popular song.
Growing up as a devout christian, there were certain words I never said. I was 36 years old before I ever uttered the P word. I was today years old before I sang along out loud to a song and said it so many times.
PLEASE be 18 or even 35 to enter... if you are lying about the 18 thing, could you at least be 16ish???
