My very good friend recently suggested that I write about day makeup versus night makeup.  I couldn't be happier to oblige!  Thank you "Al" for an excellent suggestion!

I am so not a makeup pro, but here are my suggestions for eye makeup from day to night:

1) Eyes For Day

A sweep of bronzer, brown liner on the top, white liner on the bottom and volumetric mascara just for the upper lashes completes a natural-looking, bright-eyed day look.

2) Eyes For Date Night
I used a cream-colored shadow for the brow bone and a taupe shadow for the lids.  Because of taupe's brown + gray earthy appeal, the eyes look glam in a natural way.  With a brown-black liner outlining the shape of my eyes and a couple of coats of black mascara, this look is ready for romance.


3) Eyes For Dancing The Night Away
Drama, drama, and more drama!  Going clubbing with the girls means going big: big lashes and dramatic colors.  I'm talking sultry purple, sexy navy and mile long lashes to have some serious fun.



  1. Awesome post! I love all these looks, esp the clubbing one!

  2. you have really really pretty eyelashes! soo jealous!

  3. Thank you for the encouraging words guys!

    Eugenia: The last look (clubbing) I actually used fakes from M.A.C. They really help.

  4. Are you wearing falsies in your last pics? Your eyes are sooo sultry! ;)

  5. Tammy: Yes I am wearing falsies in the last pic. Thank you for the compliment. I find purples and blues good colors and yes, very sultry-looking.
