Valentine's Day Makeup Guide: feat. Tom Ford

Last week, Nordstrom Bellevue opened the official counter of Tom Ford Beauty and invited me in for a makeup appointment. I love Tom Ford for his perfect nude lipstick and sensual Black Orchid fragrance, so I was excited to learn more about other products. The artist's finished result was boldly romantic, which makes for a perfect Valentine's Day look.

Here is a breakdown of the products and colors they used on me:

1. Eyes & Brows

- Eye Cream + Primer: Intensive Infusion Eye Treatment + Primer Duo
* Eyebrows: Espresso Brow Sculpter (Tom Ford's luxury is in his attention to detail, like a discrete built-in sharpener for the calligraphy brow pencil)
* Eye Shadow: Titanium Smoke Quad Palette (conveniently arranged colors for a glam, smokey eye)
- Eyeliner: Onyx Eye Defining Pencil

2. Face & Skin

- Skin Oil: Intensive Infusion Concentrate
* Primer: Illuminating Primer (luxurious base for that bright, dewy complexion)
- Foundation: Natural Traceless Liquid
* Contour: Intensity Two Shade and Illuminate Duet (contouring made easy with the duo)
- Bronzer: Terra Bronzing Powder

3. Lips

- Lip color: Vampire Kiss
- Lip gloss: Lip Laquer

* = My favorites
