A face of the Day with some products from Tom Ford summer 2015, NARS Eyelashes, RMS charm and more
My father-in-law does this thing where he answers every “when” question with the word, “Tuesday,” like, “When did you men go to that dinner?”

And he says, “Tuesday.”


Or, “When was that storm you mentioned?”

To which he says, “Tuesday.”

And he giggles each time like it’s the funniest joke in the world.

Big sigh…

Buuut, I’m borrowing the joke today! Basically, I was in the mood to wear something natural-ish, sunny and spiced up with sparkling garnish because, dude! — as my father-in-law might say, it’s Tuesday, and Tuesdays are the best days to wear glitter.

I used quite a few new products, too (some of them from Tom Ford summer 2015!), along with some older faves like Diorskin Air nude Serum for this bronzed brown and gold eye with pink cheeks and coral lips.

A trick for mornings when you wake up with puffy eyes…

I had majorly puffy eyes this morning thanks to my spring allergies, so to offset that puffiness I deepened my crease with a matte brown. instead of using an eyeshadow, though, I grabbed Tom Ford’s Terra Bronzer.

Jep! I used it as a transition shade, which I like it for, as it isn’t orangey. It’s much more of a golden tan warm matte brown, and I think it layers and blends beautifully.

I really didn’t want to accentuate my puffy lids, so I kept all of the shimmers/glitters on my “mobile lid.”

Yup, mobile lid. It’s the part of the lid that moves when you blink. You can see it when you look straight into a mirror and blink. That part that moves is your mobile lid.

Joka tapauksessa! For this look, I did a matte in the crease and kept the shimmer confined to the mobile lid. The combination of shimmer on the lid and matte in the crease appears to deepen and define the crease.

Or at least that’s the idea.

IMO, the best thing from Tom Ford summer 2015

For the shimmer, I used Tom Ford’s cream and Powder Eye color in naked Bronze. I dabbed the cream bronze shadow on my lids with a finger, let it dry, then went back in and patted the glitter eyeshadow in the center of my lid to create a focal point.

I really like naked Bronze, by the way. It’s annoyingly expensive ($60), but it’s so pigmented that I don’t have to use much, and both the cream and the glitter layer and blend sans drama. even if you did use a ton, it would probably still look effortless.

I think Tom Ford’s cream shadows are among the best products in the line, and if I were to choose one thing from the summer 2015 Collection, it would be one of the cream and Powder Eye Colors.

Cream blushes: a makeup tip

For cheeks, I also turned to Tom. I dabbed golden pink cream Cheek color in Pink Sand on the apples of my cheeks for a soft, subtle sheen and some natural pink color.

My favorite way to apply cream blush is to do it best after foundation. That way the foundation is still a little wet and the cream blush blends into it much more easily. If, on the other hand, I wait until my foundation is dry, the blush seems to sit up on top of my skin where it looks much more obvious.

For this look, I stippled the blush with a real techniques Multi task Brush.

Tom Ford Lip color sheer in Pardiso? Sheer? Ei niin paljon…

The coral lips in this look are courtesy of pleasantly unexpected Tom Ford Lip color sheer in Pardiso (also from summer 2015), which is sheer in name only, as it’s very pigmented on my lips. It also lasts 3-4 hours.

New NARS Eyelashes, Paul & Joe primer and RMS Beauty

As for the other products I’m wearing, I worked in some new things I’ve been wanting to even more explore, like (in no particular order)…

NARS Eyelashes in Numero 1 — This style is considered the “little black dress” of the new NARS Eyelash family, and it’s expected to suit all eye shapes and makeup looks. They’re very comfy and easy to apply, and I like the length. They’re visible but not very cray.

Paul & Joe Moisturizing foundation primer in 01 — This luminous pinkish peach foundation and moisturizing primer has a little much more shimmer than I expected, which concerned me a first, but now I like it. I like how it peeks through ever-so-slightly.

I’d say it’s probably better for brightening than pore minimizing, though. It also has a very strong floral scent, which is the typical steeze for Paul & Joe.

RMS charm Living Luminizer — I love how this creamy highlighter, with its soft white sheen, highlights skin without excessive shimmer. easy to blend and apply (I use my fingers), it’s certainly going into my regular highlighter rotation.

RMS charm tinted “Un” Powder in 2-3 — I really like how this tinted loose powder looks on my skin and in photographs. I think the demi-matte finish looks completely natural, anD Se todella leikkaa loistaa (mutta ei tee sitä liian ankarasti, jos se on järkevää).
