MOTD | It’s my birthday!

Today it’s my birthday and, per usual, I have no plans. I’m probably just going to wash my face soon. But hey, any excuse to wear makeup!

I went for this simple burgundy eye using my favourite palette ever the Modern Reinassaince by Anastasia Beverly Hills and Porter by ColourPop x Kathleen Lights. I think this is my new go-to eye look as it was really quick to create and looks really pretty.

All I did was apply Warm Taupe on the crease then Porter on the lid and blended it all together with Venetian Red. Same thing for the undereye and I used Vermeer on the inner corner and brow bone. The shadows are really blendable on their own but the Zoeva Brushes make everything even easier. Here is the complete product list:
