Happy first day of September! So excited for this particular month because 1) it's my favorite month, and 2). it's my birth month! Last month, I was thinking of what to post for September and I toyed with the idea of doing EOTDs. I initially wanted to do a 30-day EOTD spree but my right eye can only take so much. You know,"the spirit is willing but the
body right eye is weak". So I settled for something I know I can accomplish: a 14-day EOTD spree leading up to my birthday on the 15th. I still haven't decided whether I'll do an EOTD or an FOTD on my birthday so I guess it'll be a surprise. Anyway, here the first look!
The main shadow I used was San San's Charcoal Brown and it amazed me how different it looks when layered on top of a colored base. I used a silver pencil as a base and Charcoal Brown looked like a metallic brown; so pretty! When layered on top of a brown, its brown tones are definitely highlighted and when it's layered on top of a black base, it looks really smokey. Love it!
