i try to rotate my makeup look at a weekly basis because it’s just so painful if i need to decide on both clothes AND makeup everyday! :p

because of this, i decided to start posting FOTWs as well, usually my FOTW will be a more subtle and wearable look because it is something that should be work appropriate πŸ™‚ oh and since i usually put on my makeup in the office, it has to be something easy to do!

here’s my first FOTW:
