Blazers, Booties and Makeup for a Day Out + The Exact Presents I Purchased for My Circle

Hello, friends! It’s been a wild week thus far; my final grades for the semester are submitted and I’m gratefully facing a lovely stretch of time at home. Consequently, I’m excited to share today’s post which is dedicated to my favorite type of outfit and makeup–a wintertime uniform if you will–for a day out along with an exact rendering of my family Christmas gift list, just in case you need some last minute inspiration! 
Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the products in action as well as the Bottom Line…
Makeup for a day out. 
Skin, base and fragrance. 
// SKIN, BASE + FRAGRANCE // Sometimes keeping it simple provides the greatest longevity.
Swatches in direct sunlight.

// FACE // To take full advantage of a gloriously sunny winter day, I prioritized the glow.

// EYES // Warm neutrals are my go-to when in a rush and the Tom Ford Private Shadows handled the task like champs.

Tom Ford Private Shadows
As for the Tom Ford Private Shadow, the formula is buttery and blendable with fantastic lasting power and crease-free performance. I loved the first few I received so much (reviewed HERE) that I recently picked up:
  • Body Double: A shimmering champagne that works so well to transition to brow bones
  • Loveshade: A peachy fawn…get your hands on this if you can! 
  • Iris Bronze: A warm red-toned bronze that looks great as an overall wash of color.
  • Agenda Rouge: A brilliant red brown…excellent for more dramatic moments. 

Swatches in direct sunlight. 
// LIPS // It was a long day, so I had no less than six formulas combined in various proportions while out and about.
