I really love a soft glam look and I did get heaps of compliments today on my eye look. I just love how a soft glam look can change with the shade of lipstick you wear… if I were to have paired it with a red or deep berry it would have become a more glam look, had I added a winged liner I would have had a super glam look… and it was fast and easy to achieve.
With that, today’s face of the day walkthrough is over.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night 🌞🌜 and that you are in great spirits and health 😄🩺.
