While I can apply basic make-up without looking like a clown (yes, that’s ME in that picture), I wouldn’t say that I’m adept at applying eye make-up. One of the reasons is that my lids droop from age and I’m in desperate need of an eye-lift (if you’re a plastic surgeon and are reading this and would like a lifestyle blogger to review your eye-lift services…feel free to e-mail me).
I’ve always wanted to learn how to create some of those sexy looks. Did I mention that I also wear glasses (when I’m too lazy to pop in my contacts)?
That help arrived in the form of a book called Style Eyes by celebrity makeup artist Taylor Chang-Babaian.
Beginning with a clean slate, Taylor teaches step-by-step methods of how to NOT JUST apply eye-shadow, but how to conceal flaws, create a frame via perfect eyebrows and what do do when you where glasses. Whether you’re in your 20’s or over 40 – Taylor offers tricks for helping us look our best.
My BIGGEST concern is always trying to hide the dark circles under my eyes. I never really thought about how brightening the REST of my face with blush was a great way to look healthier and draw the attention AWAY from the dark hollows.

If you’re like me, and can’t figure out how to do your eyes WITHOUT looking like you drew with crayon all over the place (guilty), grab this great paperback book. It will end up alongside your cosmetics on the vanity…like mine is.
Style Eyes is available at Amazon.com for only $12.21 (less than I pay for eye-shadow).
