Teens go 'gaga' over Lady's eyes

Posted by Elizabeth Stewart - email

DELRAY BEACH, FL (WFLX) - They may look cool, but the new Lady Gaga eye look can be hazardous for your health.

Singer superstar Lady Gaga is famous for her extravagant look, and her eyes. So much so that now teens want to match those doe-like peepers with dangerous contacts.

The circle lenses cover up the whites of the eyes making them appear bigger. One big problem though: They aren't prescription and can damage your cornea.

"Without proper care, you can end up with some serious infections," says eye doctor Douglas Leder of West Palm Beach. "If you are not fitted properly, that's where the potential abuse comes in and people wear them."

Since it is illegal and unsafe to use contacts for those Lady Gaga eyes, there is another option that is much more safe. Delray Beach make-up artist Georgio Fernandez has found that same Lady Gaga, but it's MUCH safer.

His first step, dramatic lashes. "I isolate one lash at a time." Next, the eye make-up. "Gaga is all about the eyes. We are lining the inside top of the eye liner above and inside the eye."

And smoky eyes make this look. "We know Gaga really has that thick, dramatic, liner so if you want that big bug-eyed look, grab an eye pencil."

Doctors advise that you do not go gaga for the Lady Gaga contact look.
