I was tinkering about with some gorgeous Tom Ford makeup over the weekend, experimenting with a few products that I want to include in upcoming videos. I loved the autumnal feel of the photograph above; warm, slightly tawny and beautifully glowing. The skin is less golden than the summery looks I’ve been wearing until now; there’s still a touch of bronze but it’s confined to the area under the cheekbones, as a contour, rather than being an all-over dusting. I used Tom Ford’s Shade and Illuminate contouring duo (Intensity One) to create the slightly contoured look – I’ll be doing a more in-depth review and “how to” soon – and the foundation is the Traceless Perfecting Foundation in Bisque. On my eyes, the cream shadow in Spice (coming out in November) and the Ultra Length Mascara in Ultra Raven. Nothing on the lips apart from a slick of Cicaplast Lips from La Roche-Posay to get rid of the dryness. Do you like this? I think that the glow from the skin is very impressive – it’s just natural daylight, as usual, from the window behind the camera.
I’ll be back soon with more detailed posts on some of the products shown here and others I haven’t had a chance to play with yet…there’s also an Autumn Makeup Look video in the pipeline, if you fancy it? You can find the full Tom Ford range at Selfridges.com or House of Fraser.
