FOTD: Burberry Velvet & NARS Rotunde

Remember when I said I was saving the Burberry Velvet Foundation for cooler weather? Well, the morning was so overcast and chilly… that I figure it’s Mother Nature’s way of telling me to use it right now! So I did.

Eye Adore: Tom Ford Palette in Cognac Sable

I don’t know why it took me so long to post about  this (I think I might have forgotten)… but I LOVE this palette. It’s been my ‘go to’ palette for a while. I got my first one about a year ago, and have since replaced it with a new one (I hit pan on that copper color). The colors are universal and pretty flattering on just about everyone. I use it all the time… either alone or with other shadows and creams to create any given look.

Like all the other palettes in the Tom Ford line, this thing is massive. The pans are so big, that I can even pretend that those little sponges and ‘brush’ aren’t tucked in there as well…

Each shadow is highly pigmented. The shimmer copper is best  used with your fingers to ‘press’ onto the eyelid (a trick I learned from Tom Ford MUA Tito Fuente).

Love. I highly recommend this baby… it’s perfect for creating elegant Holiday looks for this season… and beyond. Love it.
