Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate

Quick post:

Road testing the Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate palette now.

Here's quick instagram pic- no filters- just my face.skin in natural light.



Here's what is  going on here:

Concealing pen: Touche Eclat in 3 brow bone, inner and outer corner of eyes, around the nose ( alar nasae - Latin lesson for the day :0), and 3 stripes on the forehead

Skin- Bobbi Brown Skin finish foundation in Honey all over buffed in with RT |Buffing brush

Brows- The Lisa Eldridge Brows :), brushed down, filled in with Kate Brow Pencil in green/gray lightly and the brushed back in to shape.

Eyes- YSL false lash effect liner with Mally Beauty Mascara ( 1 coat )

Cheeks- Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate in 1, contoured with RT contour Brush and Highlighter buffed on Cheek bones, brow bones , bridge of nose, forehead and cupids bow using a dense blush/ bronzer brush from Priori Cosmetics.

Lips: Bobbi Brown Shimmer Rose Lip gloss.

this was the before face- :

Bit of a 'blah face'

blah face



TF shade and illuminate is creme based, can translate as oily sheen-ie mess if heavy handed. for my skin TF S&I 1 works for day, I have Shade 2 for night time drama.

on days i want to skip blusher- this compact does the trick well so far-- luminous and hydrated face look- which we like. even better i think- is just  this compact on clean/blemish free or concealed skin, with brows done, slick of gloss and get out!! fresh face beauty - if you can stand being without any eye products on. I must try that soon.

tell me what you think? will you step out with just your contours defined?

TF Shade and Illuminate retails around £40 ish.

more on this to come soon..
