Why do we love blue eyes?
Is it because they’re rare? Less than 10% of us have blue eyes shining from our faces.
Is it because there is such an amazing range of different blues? Those blues come in all shades of enticing hues.
Maybe they remind us of priceless jewels like a blue diamond, a topaz or sapphires.
You don’t have to pay big bucks to look like a million dollars.
Imagine getting cheap, natural blue contact lenses and transforming your look. Why wouldn’t you?
What makes us go “Oh baby!” for those baby blues?
One of the first things you notice about someone is the colour of their eyes. If they are a stand out colour then you have a stand out feature on your side. Something unusual makes us want to know more and blue eyes make us all more curious.
SPECIAL CHANGE OUT OF THE BLUE
Originally, all human beings were brown-eyed. Then, less than 10,000 years back, some cheeky bugger near the Black Sea had a genetic accident at conception that resulted in their eyes being blue. That little event slowly built a huge wave of variations over time and look at us today!
EYES LIKE THE SKY
Blue eyed people are often thought to be the most fascinating. It’s because blue eyes have a completely colourless stroma.
Stroma? Say what? We’re not all scientists.
All it means is that all the light that enters it is scattered off into the atmosphere. This is the effect that creates a blue hue.
The interesting thing is that blue eyes don't actually have a set colour. It all depends on the amount on how much light is coming through. It’s pretty much the same thing with eyes as it is with the sky looking blue - even though it really isn’t. Sometimes looks are important.
WHY BLUE EYES GO RED IN PHOTOS
Blue-eyes don’t have a full amount of melanin (the black or dark brown pigment) in the iris of the eye. It’s in the hair and skin too.
It’s there to shield the eye from intensive light, like the sun or fluoro lighting. When a photo is taken with a flash, the light hits our eyes and the retina isn’t fast enough to contract. The light bounces back and it shows up in the photo as red eyes. The shot is usually ruined because we look like demons or someone possessed. These days the ‘red eye’ function lets out more than one flash so the retina constricts and goodbye red eye!
Being sensitive to daylight and flash photos is not great but there is one advantage. The lack of melanin means more light enters those blue eyes at night. That means seeing better in the dark and less chance of bumping into things on your way to bed.
EVERYONE HAS SPECIAL EYES
Eye colour is unique for every person. That’s right, no-one has the exact same colour as anyone else. Depending on your genes, it changes shades constantly over your lifetime.
Some blue eyed people have a special something about them. Check out these blue eyed babes:
Ryan Gosling, Chris Hemsworth and his hunky brother, Liam. Don’t forget Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt and the Justin Timberlake and Justin Trudeau, that good looking Canadian Prime Minister.
And the girls have got it going on too, with:
Angelina Jolie, Margot Robbie, Amber Heard and those pale blue wonders from Taylor Swift.
