If makeup were a soundtrack… we’d spin that record baby day and night. At the start of the day we may opt for a more casual, relaxed sound, perhaps Olivia Newton-John or Wild Belle if you’re a wild child like myself. As the day progresses the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, classic REO Speedwagon, or old school rap may prevail. When day comes close to evening, we may settle on a more upbeat tune to spice up our night or go straight to The Cure for a haunting yet relaxing vibe to end the night.
Here’s a little look into our hottest shades in the eye shadow department - six of the best for day AND night looks. Get your makeup brushes out!
