You can get clear covers with a kit to help you make your own "projector style" covers from GTS.

there is no kit...but GTS makes clear lenses for our cars, you could mask off where you want the holes and paint the rest

The covers are complete headlight covers,as are the tinted covers, but they are clear. Back in the day I was thinking of how I could make eyebrows, and I found that they made clear covers. I found them at Auto Zone. I had originally posted ideas on making 'projector' style with circles, but I decided I liked the eyebrow look the best. I painted the outside of the covers, base coat and several layers of clear. You could paint the inside so that the paint does not get chipped from stones, but I didn't have many problems with stone chips, maybe just one or two spots I had to touch up.

The info for the man at the counter at the parts store:
