Wicked EOTD

I’ve been sharing a few¬†EOTDs and FOTDs in recent weeks as I continue experimenting with some of my new-to-me makeup company finds.

I always thought that was great, but my stepmother isn’t big on wearing makeup, and when she does it’s the opposite of mine¬†– subtle and soft!¬† So I scoffed …
