I must be the last person to actually blog about the Tom Ford cosmetics even though I think I was the first person to actually arrive at the press day! Needless to say that everything Mr Ford touches turns to gold so I had no worries that this line would disappoint. I will post more about the other products as I get and use them so for now shall we have a look at this?
Burnished Amber Eye Colour Quad
This is the palette I wanted from the start! The colours are all so luscious and stunning and with a lean towards the coppers and the reds, I thought I'd wait for a chance to use them on a green-eyed beauty but it never happened! So when I got to work with the stunning Edita, I broke open the seal and decided if anyone was going to showcase this palette well, it would be Edita!
The textures are as expected lush and buttery-soft, pigment-rich and easily blended without colour spillage anywhere. In fact there was hardly any spillage onto the surrounding areas round the eyes. Right I can't wait so let me introduce you to Edita!
Edita has a beautiful face and has normal skin which tends to get slightly dry. I wanted the finished look to be all burnished and glowy and skin to look really expensive and luxurious, so I prepped it accordingly.
Face Prep: Bioderma Crealine H20 Micellar Water, La Roche-Posay Thermal Spa Water Spray, Emma Hardie Hydrating Lighter Lotion, Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, SUQQU Lip Essence Cream R.
I rarely use only the colours from one palette or brand whilst working but I really wanted to showcase this particular eye quad. Other than that, I added a bit of help with an eye liner pencil from Shu Uemura also in harmony with the colour scheme. The rest of the face I kept quite simple so as to not detract from Edita's stunning eyes and Tom Ford Colours. Pardon the multitude of photos, I just couldn't help myself, the effect was just so mesmerising that I kept snapping away. Have a look.

What do you guys think? I'm so in love with the colour combination. It's utterly decadent, modern yet has an air of old-school glamour. Here's a couple of close-ups from different angles.
Please do let me know your thoughts on this look. If you have any questions or comments, you know what to do? I'd love to hear about your experience with any other Tom Ford products that you think I should try.
