GRWM: One Year Work Anniversary!

GRWM One Year AnniversaryLast Wednesday, (May 4th to be exact!) it was a whole year since I started my job and because it was such a milestone I wanted to celebrate by wearing a mix of my old and current makeup favourites. I remember I did a FOTD post about the makeup I wore on my first day of work and it’s crazy to think how far I’ve come since then, work-wise and makeup-wise. Originally, the job was only for two months but I was asked if I wanted to stay on and of course I said yes! I have learnt so much in the past twelve months and everyday I’m still thankful to have been given a chance.

Eyes TitleWork GRWM Eye LookI applied the two shades indicated above all over my lids before going in with Max Factor’s Excess Shimmer eyeshadow pot in the shade Copper. I wanted something simple yet striking on my lids as I was making my lips the feature and I generally accentuate one or the other.

Wearing a face full of my favourite products was the perfect way to mark my one year anniversary. What makeup items do you turn to for a special occasion?

    Congrats on your 1 year work anniversary! Such a cute look. I always love to incorporate some of my higher end blushes like Hourglass or Burberry for special occasions as they really do add a nice glow. 🙂
