Face of the Day: Birthday!

Hi everyone! It’s that time of year again! Yes! Another year younger! Haha! Have you noticed how when you’re a kid, birthdays are SO exciting and you just can’t WAIT until the big day hits?! And then you become an adult and begin to realize that instead of presents, you now get bills instead. Oh, the irony!

My most favorite kind of eyeshadow look has GOT to be a smokey, sultry eye, and as I’ve really been enjoying Stila’s In the Moment palette here lately, I figured what better palette to do it with? What I love about this look is that it’s not so over the top, and it makes my eyes look even bluer (I think a lot of that has to do with the crease color here, too). Heavenly combo!

If you’re celebrating a birthday today or this month, Happy Birthday to you as well!
