I shared a beauty haul a couple of weeks ago talking about how I must have lost my marbles purchasing some very pricey products from Tom Ford Beauty, by Terry and more. This look features those new products. It’s pretty but pricey so I’m going to share some potential dupes if you like the look but want to try it for less. Let’s get to this summer makeup look…
I primed my lids using Soft Ochre by MAC. Dust a little face powder overtop the primer to help the shadows blend and not skip on the lids. Take the matte peach shade in the by Terry palette and a fluffy brush to blend through the crease as a transition shade. This will help give a super blended look to the eyeshadow. Then use the lightest shade in the Tom Ford quad in Nude Dip and apply to the lid up to the crease (use your finger or a shadow brush like this). Use the second lightest shade on the outer half of the lid for a subtle fade. Take the third lightest taupe shade and your fluffy brush again through the crease, careful to not blend over the peach tone (keep it more concentrated). Then take a smaller eyeshadow brush to apply the darkest shade on the outer 1/4th of the lid. Use the fluffy brush again to buff that color on the outer corner of the lid, slightly into the crease.
Line the top lashes with this drugstore liquid liner in Ultra Black. Line the lower lashes with a dark brown liner (I used this drugstore one). Take the darkest two eyeshadows in the Tom Ford quad and smudge them into the lower lash line over the brown liner with a smudge brush for a blended look.
Optional: apply false lashes. I used these Ardell faux mink ones.
Buff your foundation all over the face. I used my current favorite full coverage foundation by PUR Cosmetics. Apply concealer to areas you feel you may need a little extra help – for me, it’s always under the eyes. Use a kabuki brush to set your foundation with the Tarte Creamy Confidence powder. Take a basic blush/powder brush and go into the bronze side of the by Terry Savannah Love palette, swirling all of the shades together. Apply to the top of the forehead; make the kissy fish face and apply to the hollows of the cheeks, the tip of the nose, the tip of the chin and along the jaw line for contouring/dimension. Basically, look at your face and apply the bronze shade where the sun would hit your face. Then take the blush side and swirl those shades together using the same brush and apply it to the cheeks with a touch on your nose and chin for a cohesive look.
Use Benefit Precisely My Brow pencil to fill in your brows. Set in place so they don’t budge with Benefit Gimme Brow.
A quick swipe of the prettiest light coral pink makes for the perfect summer lip color! I used Tom Ford’s Spanish Pink.

I’m only listing dupes I think are a 90% or better match. If I could not think of or find a 90% or better dupe, I am not listing it here.
*Urban Decay Toasted is a slight hint darker than YDK, so for ease of purchasing you can get the original Urban Decay Naked1 palette and have an excellent complete dupe of this Tom Ford palette for nearly $30 cheaper with EIGHT more eyeshadows
