I adore every single thing I’ve bought from them and I tend to pick up visage extras whenever they show up, so I took the plunge and finally subscribed to the monthly box πŸ™‚

EOTD / Color Challenge

Happy Wednesday! Keeping with my 2017 makeup resolutions, I made sure to wake up extra early so I could do a look more complicated than my usual neutral grab & go.
This one isn’t so much an Eyeshadow Roulette (as I have yet to wrangle all my eyeshadows into a spreadsheet) but more of a color challenge!Β It’s a bit inspired by all those gorgeous warm toned Modern Renaissance looks that are everywhere nowadays!

Ignore how tired I look- it’s week two of my cold that won’t go away :/
