Default Did the Romulan actors wear contacts?

I'm looking at the Romulans in the new "Star Trek" movie, and I'm wondering if they are wearing special contacts. It looks like their eyes are darker than human eyes and I'm wondering if they did anything special.

If so they didn't mention it in any of the special effects sequences. Eric Bana at least has very dark eyes naturally.

No, Eric definitely had some quite weird, but subtle, dark and scary contact lenses!
