Eye color

Anastasia:
I'm not sure where to ask this, but since this happened buying makeup, I'll ask here. I went out today as Anna to find a eye shadow palette since I mostly have single color eye shadow. I told the sales lady that I wanted mostly neutral pallets with one or two colors that pop. So she was showing me several different ones and suddenly said "This would be perfect for your green eyes!". What?? My eyes are blue. "They look green to me." We went to the register and the sales lady asked the woman there what color my eyes were. She also said green. I looked in the mirror. Green. I said there must be something about the light so the sales lady took me outside,looked, and said "still green". A look in the mirror confirmed it. My eyes are now green. I bought the pallet, kinda shocked, surprised? And headed home. On the way home, Anna stepped aside and I became male again.

I get home, go into the bathroom to try out this makeup with my now green eyes, and they're blue. There's a green undertone, but my eyes are blue, like always. I'm not sure what to make of this. My eyes have always shifted colors, but always tones of blue and it takes weeks, usually.

I'm going to bring it up to my Dr at my next checkup, but that's 6 months or so away. Is there any real reason to make an appointment sooner? I know it sounds crazy, and if I can get good pics, I will. I'm sure its just a harmless oddity, but I don't want to find out it's a sign of alien brain infestation or sonething.

RandiL:
Blue = Boy, Green = Girl. Makes perfect sense to me! Hmm, can you go back there as a male and see what color your eyes are? You can bring your own mirror so you don't have to out yourself. Interesting question.

CaelaNotKayla:
Anna-

Do you have any "brown/gold" areas of your iris?  You might actually have Hazel eyes.... sometimes mine look green, sometimes blue, sometimes gray.  All depending upon how weirdly the light is reflecting at the time.  With the different pigments in a Hazel eye the light really can play havoc with what color you see compared to an eye with a single pigment.

Hugs!!

That's really interesting. If you could actually genetically change your color upon will, I'd be very interested to hear more about it sometime :o
Though it does seem likely that it could have been a lighting illusion. Factors like what type of lights the store had or surrounding objects that were reflecting the light can make us see things differently (remember the blue vs gold dress)? Either way, interesting story.

This makes sense too except... isn't hazel brown/goldish or green? Mine (being hazel) have never had a blueish look, though if you say yours have perhaps. I'd rather just say it's magic :D

SarahEL:
My eyes change from blue to grey to green to hazel to brown..  sometimes one eye is different to the other.

I have weird genetics.. and so have always blamed it on that.. but really, I can have piercing blue eyes one day, and dark brown the next.. the only thing is, I have no conscious control over it...
