When you open up a box in the mail to unveil clean, white, boxes of perfection with gold Tom Ford stamped across them, you get slightly excited. By slightly, I mean, just a little. By a little, I mean, HOLY S*%T hurry up and tear open the box to see what’s inside….!!!
Tom Ford just does that to me. Every time, without fail. What is it about Tom that has created that feeling inside of me? Well, I have studied a lot about TF, his history, and how he has gotten to where he is today. As well as who he is as a person, a brand, and a designer, and I have nothing but respect for him. He knows who he is, he knows who his brand is, he knows what he stands for, and doesn’t waiver one bit. I respect his vision, his courage, and his strong sense of self, and belief about self worth. All things I strive to do to be better for myself and for my brand.
So this tutorial is simple. If you know me, you know I like things un-complicated. Why make things hard when they don’t have to be? I think the best trick is to make things look amazing, and then show how simple and easy it is to get there. Hence this look.
TF came out with some gorgeous colors for their Soleil Winter 2017 collection, and that’s what I’m sharing with you in this video. I am wearing all colors from the palette in Violete Argente. PINKS + PURPLES!
THE ULTIMATE TOM FORD SOLEIL ACCESSORY A REFLECTIVE IVORY-AND-GOLD-COLORED CLUTCH CONTAINS A COLOR PALETTE FOR EYES AND CHEEKS TO CREATE AN ARRAY OF LUXURIOUS LOOKS. EACH FEATURE FOUR EYE SHADOWS, HIGHLIGHTER AND BLUSH IN TWO COLOR WAVES; SULTRY, BRONZED WARMTH AND SWEET, INCANDESCENT COOL.
PS: This palette also comes in a color run called Solar Exposure, and it is equally as dreamy.
What I was most intrigued and surprised by was a new form of product for the lips that I had never tried before. Tom Ford Lip Slicks.
TINT. COMFORTING. OIL-INFUSED. CONDITIONS LIPS WITH A DARING HINT OF COLOR. FOUR SUCCULENT HUES IN DEEP BURGUNDY TO BLACKENED BERRY FEATURE INTOXICATING SOLEIL ESSENCES TO ELICIT THE EPITOME OF LUMINOSITY. A LUXURIOUS, NON-STICKY ELIXIR INFUSED WITH JOJOBA OIL AND COCONUT OIL PROVIDES GLOSSY, HIGH-SHINE LIPS WITH A JUICY TINT. SIMPLY TURN THE BASE OF THE PACKAGE UNTIL PRODUCT DISPENSES THROUGH THE ROLLERBALL. APPLY ROLLERBALL DIRECTLY ONTO LIPS FOR A COMFORTABLE, NOURISHING FEEL.
Heaven and beauty all morphed into one. The packaging, application, and look are all 100!! These come in four JUICY colors (I’m wearing Bitten Berry), and are the perfect pick me up in these dull winter months.
Some MUA tips for this video:
- I like to put pigment onto my eyelids with my fingers, and blend with dry brushes.
- For eyeshadow underneath my eyes I do like to use a brush, but I always make sure the brush is thicker so that it give a softer, lived in look.
- Blend the eyeshadows higher up, almost to the brow bone. Nod to the late 80’s, early 90’s is back.
- I didn’t contour with this. You certainly can, but I liked the fresh pop of pink on the cheeks.
- No eyeliner is needed, the eyeshadow does all the talking.
- Keep the skin simple and clean.
- Have fun!
You don’t normally see me rocking these colors, but doing these videos for you guys always challenges me to step out of my comfort zone, and with that I have created new looks that I will actually wear and add into my rotation. YAY for that and YAY for trying new things. I hope this look inspires you and gives you a little warm, bright pick me up in these dull winter months. XO
