Tom Ford 2012 Inspired Makeup Look

Was going to do a step-by-step for this look but the pictures did not come out as anticipated :(

Inspired by the Tom Ford Fall 2012 look - burgundy, bronzy brown metallic rum deep socketed eyes, heavily contoured with just a touch of pink cheeks, sultry red lips. I thought it would be kinda fun to dupe this look since I basically have nothing Tom Ford or anything red tone with me (you all know I just relocated for work and have minimum makeup with me from this post).

BASE MAKEUP | I used Hera HD Foundation in no. 21 to create a flawless canvas. Also wanted to test out to see of the foundation which has SPF 15 does well with flash photography. I guess it doesn't lol. Topped with the YSL stick concealer that I often use in my Foundation Routine, I highlighted my nose and top of my cheekbons with Nars Hungry Heart Duo III before sprinkling the Lancome Photogenic Loose Powder on the areas where I need to set the concealer and control my oiliness.

EYE MAKEUP | Without a burgundy color, I first used the red in the Sleek i-Divid Primer Palette 600 to create a base. Then lay the bronzy Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette in Snakebite to create the deep and elongated socketed by putting it close to my nose bridge and winging it further out. Don't forget the signature of this look is to put the bronzy shadow all across the lower lash line. To continue with the same palette, I utilize the shine of YDK to give the center of my eyes a pop and highlight my brow bones using Bootycall. Lastly using Tease to blend everything in making sure the colors are located high enough even when eyes are open. For eyeliner I start with using ELF black gel liner to tightline both the upper all the way in and out with a short wing. Same with the lower waterline, then go over it with the Olive one to thicken it out.

FACE MAKEUP | As usual I use Nars Laguna to slightly give my face the sunkissed look. Then I focus on deeply contour the hallow of my face and top it of with a slight touch of Nars Sin.

LIPS MAKEUP | Since I don't have a deep red with me at the moment, I line my lips using a orange lipliner to give the lips some sharp definition. Go in then with Shiseido Rouge Parfait in RD415 that I also used in This Look, in attempt to tone it down further with the plummy Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum tho it was an epic fail lol.

It is no doubt too early to do an autumn / fall look but I couldn't resist how beautiful and mesmerizing the look is. Nor my face is any closed to be pretty or my Asian features as 3D as the super gorgeous model in the Ad la wtf, I just secretly wish I was white lolol just kidding. Hope you like the look nonetheless xo.
