Look: Special Occasion FOTD - Silvery Taupe Eyes Nude Pink

Back in January, I was brainstorming a look for an evening special event. After twitting about my ideas, my blogger friends voted for 3 looks a) copper eye and bright pink lips; b) bronze eyes and dark lips; and c) silvery taupe eyes and nude pink lips. 

Guess which look I sported for the event? I picked this one! I though it contrasted my teal dress subtly and still added a bit of drama to the look :D. And to be honest, I simply love everything about this look and decided to go with my instinct.The high shimmery silvery taupe against nude pink lips. I love my glowy cheeks (thank you thank you Edward Bess!) that seamlessly changes from a highlighter to blush. Love Tom Ford blush in Savage for this look! It ties all color and texture together. 

Since the eyes are rather intense, I kept the skin very natural. On that day I used Burberry Sheer Luminous Trench 6 (review of Trench 5 is here). I replaced it with Tom Ford Traceless Stick Foundation Natural for this post while testing the sucker. It's phenomenal for my skin!! Reviews of Tom Ford items used in this post are on their way. I finished the write-up yet don't want to overwhelm you guys with my opinionated rambles ;;)

As usual, please scroll down for full makeup breakdown.

    1. I love it too!!! I didn't expect the combination of simple silvery taupe and brown can be appealing. This is definitely something I picked up along the way with blogging. Ah, the earrings are really affordable and I got millions of compliments about it, every time. Scored! Thank you for the sweet comment Miss Stunning!

    1. Oh ah the blush is so awesome!! Picking up my favorite TF blush is impossible, like choosing your favorite kid hahaha. TF has something for everyone. For me, Narcissist works best for natural blushing so I reach for it more frequently to do my everyday looks. But Ravish and Savage are my go-to when I want something a bit more edgy, and I wear them subtle. Flush for brightening and Love Lust for bolder lips and tie in with contouring. I wear makeup more natural than edgy so Narcissist is my absolute fav.
