MOTD Evolution & WEN

I began my makeup today with the bare minimum. I had no intentions of putting on a full face of makeup. I kept my eyes very simple without any mascara. This is how I started. As you can see, I originally kept it light and more natural. I applied a shadow base from IT Cosmetics…
