Eye Looks

Jessica, one of my fave bloggers (and now Facebook friends!) from A Few of My Favorite Things asked that I show some eye looks that are good for daytime, but before going out at night. What a great idea, thanks again love!

Since I have giganto eyes, I put the most of my make up efforts into them. So here are a few easy daytime looks:

Look 1: All Over
This has to be the easiest look to do, anyone can master it! Use one color on your entire lid going up into your crease, but not onto your browbone. I would suggest using a natural color such as tan, gold, bronze (depending on your skin tone) with a hint of shimmer. The shimmer adds just an extra touch of fancy and shows that you're actually wearing something on your lids and catches the light. Here I'm wearing MAC Retro Speck.

Look 2: 3 Shadows
This is another great look that's easy for day use. The technique is pretty basic and you can usually find the directions for this on the back of eyeshadow pallettes from Covergirl or Maybelline. Use a light/medium color on your lid from your lashline to the crease, a highlighter color on your inner eye corners and browbone, then a medium/dark color in your crease. You can use this technique for any color and for a quick day to night look, smudge a darker color (even black) on the far outer corner. Even just a smudge with your finger in your car works! Here I'm wearing MAC Honesty on my lid, Phloof as my highlighter, and Woodwinked in the crease.

Look 3: Smoky Day
For a darker eye look during the day I love the look of one medium/dark color on the entire lid with a heavier eyeliner. It looks good with a highlighter as well, or an even darker color blended into the lash line. You can also use a highlighter on the browbone and inner eye corner.
Here I am wearing MAC Romp over my entire lid with black liner on top and bottom lids as well as my waterline.

What do you think of these looks? Did you think they're appropriate for daytime? How do you wear eyeshadow during the day? Do you wear it in daytime or save it for after hours only?
