FOTD: Pre Oscars Brunch

I stepped out for a late breakfast with a few colleagues for a pre-ceremony brunch (most of us are working this evening). I wanted to look fresh and ‘open’ and keep everything on the neutral side. So this is what I did:

Tom Ford Traceless Foundation (Praline)
By Terry Hyaluronic Face Powder
Chanel Blush in Tempting Beige
MAC Highlight in Shell Pearl
Chantecaille Eyeshadow in Sel
Guerlain Retractable Pencil in Gold #1
Chanel Volume Mascara
Gleam Lip Radiance in NAKED

FOTD: Copper Wash

This was quick… I just went with one basic color to get everything done…

Tom Ford Traceless Foundation (Praline)
Laura Mercer Secret Brightening Powder (#2)
Chanel Blush in In Love
Laura Mercier Eye Canvas (#2)
Laura Mercier Baked Eye Color in Terracotta (lids/under waterline)
Louise Young Eyeshadow in Maowi (crease)
Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil in Perversion (waterline)
Armani Eyes To Kill Stretch Mascara
Chanel Lip Pencil in Cognac
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Misia

FOTD: Matte Mauve & Pink Shimmer

This just seemed like a good idea at the time:

Tom Ford Traceless Foundation
Kevyn Aucoin Radiant Diaphanous Powder
Chanel Horizon Blush
Kjaer Weis Eyeshadow in Wisdom (lids)
Chanel Single Eyeshadow in Twilight (crease)
YSL Shocking Gel Liner in Ashy Black (lashline and waterline)
Guerlain Noir G Mascara
Shiseido Shimmer Rouge Lipstick in Iron Maiden

Tom Ford Beauty: IN STOCK


I went to the Neiman Marcus website this morning, and noticed that the Tom Ford Beauty line is now in stock! It had been on ‘pre-order’ — with plans to ship no later than the 7th of November. But it looks like Neiman’s sped things up a bit, and decided to get things started a little early.

I ordered the Traceless Foundation Stick, and the Traceless Foundation… both in Caramel. According to swatches from London Makeup Girl, that looks like the best match for me. I also bit the bullet and got the cream foundation brush (which is stupid expensive) because I really want to know how it works with the foundations.

So, now that my wallet is cussing me out, and forbidding me to spend money on ANYTHING more than food and shelter…

I’m excitedly waiting for my Tom Ford goodies to arrive!
