A Holiday Video Tutorial: Featuring New Tom Ford + a Host of Fresh Beauty Discoveries

The Eyes of Tom Ford Collection.

Happy December, lovelies! I’ve been wanting to film a new video tutorial for quite awhile and was so inspired by the recently launched Eyes of Tom Ford Collection–as well as some fresh beauty discoveries from Sappho, Girlactik and Oribe–that I promptly raced to my camera to create a holiday look. 

With the end of my teaching semester near and winter break around the corner, I cannot wait to continue to create new content and truly hope you enjoy this video in the meanwhile. 

Kindly scroll on for the video, additional details, swatches galore and stills of the products in action as well the Bottom Line…

  •  *Tom Ford Private Shadow (also available at Beautylish) in Videotape, Vertigo, Tempete Blue and Breathless. The four shades I tried–and subsequently used in the video–are the satin burgundy Videotape, matte grey-meets-taupe Vertigo, shockingly gorgeous duo-chrome metallic Tempete Blue and incandescent silver Breathless. With luxe packaging and excellent color payoff, the Private Shadow singles are the quintessential makeup bag companion. I am beyond impressed and eagerly anticipate trying more shades in the coming days!
  •  *Tom Ford Kohl Intense Crayon in Tourmaline and White Smoke (also available at Beautylish): The rich peacock green glides on with ease yet stays in place for hours (I use it in my lower waterline in the video) and the clean white hue immediately brightens eyes.
  •  *Tom Ford Eye Gloss (also available at Beautylish): Ultra-reflective and decidedly non-sticky, this clear formula instantly creates a durable dewy eye look.
  •  *Tom Ford Mascara in Spike LashFull Screen LashShutter Lash (Spike and Full Screen used in the video): These new mascaras feature three distinct brushes to achieve a variety of custom lash looks…you’re mascara wardrobe has never looked so good.
