What's on my Face- The Valentine's Day Edition

I just wanted to do this post showing how I used the MAC Burgundy x 9 eyeshadow palette that I reviewed in my last post. The colours in the palette are definitely reminiscent of those normally associated with Valentine's Day so I thought I would post a look albeit me being bae-less- lolz. I like this look because you can keep it quite soft with a nude lip or amp up the drama by adding some black eyeshadow to intensify it and changing the lip to something darker. This time round I remembered to use an eyeshadow primer! It definitely helps a bit with the creasing I can't seem to avoid :( but it could still definitely be improved. My technique also needs work- this literally took me ages :'(( . Alsooo Shea Moisture come through- I'm stunned by how much my hair has grown!!
