Nighttime is the Right Time October 31, 2013

Once the sun goes down, especially in big cities, life takes on colors & a vibe all it’s own. Morning people don’t know what they’re missing, but for night owls it’s like the second half of the day is just beginning.

Nighttime is the Right Time

October 31, 2013

Once the sun goes down, especially in big cities, life takes on colors & a vibe all it’s own. Morning people don’t know what they’re missing, but for night owls it’s like the second half of the day is just beginning.

Dany Sanz, Founder, Artistic Director of MAKE UP FOR EVER, and confirmed observer of the world around her, recently shared another of her favorite inspiring things. Nighttime.

There’s no better people & freak-watching than at night, especially the other side of midnight, no better vantage point for an imagination to find all the stimulation and inspiration it could ever desire. For those who believe that early to bed and early to rise is the way to go, we are speaking a whole ‘nother language.

“I feel like I should have been a screenwriter. I write these scripts in my head constantly. Stories and ideas flow that I seem to have no control over and it seems to happen more at night.  I am forced to be a ‘morning person’, a daytime person – you can’t really run a business from 10 pm until 5 in the morning! – but my true nature really identifies with nocturnal people. The freedom, the light, the kind of people who stay up & out late, even the weirdness. Or especially the weirdness. The darkness translates well to the world of body painting, of makeup artistry. Even in our everyday lives, the time when we really go all out with our makeup is after dark. So when people ask “What is your inspiration?” I can look around me and say “what isn’t my inspiration?!”
