WHY IT CAUGHT OUR EYE

One product we consistently hear our artist community rave about is the Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate sculpting and contouring palette. So when we presented the brand’s newest iteration for the cheeks, they were instantly smitten.

Case in point: Shade and Illuminate Cheeks includes a complementing pearlescent highlighter and vibrant cream blush to draw light and amplify the cheekbones. Users can even apply the finger-friendly compact to the lips and eyes for a sheer wash of color.

THE ARTIST RESPONSE

“This is heaven. I love everything Tom Ford makes. These duos have gorgeous colors and glide onto the skin.”—Georgie Eisdell, makeup artist

“I love this combo. The blush shade is so pretty on the face, and the illuminator is perfect for almost all skin tones. It’s perfect for a fresh, natural makeup look.”—Matthew VanLeeuwen, makeup artist

SUGGESTED USE

With your fingers, a brush, or a sponge, apply the darker hue to the apples of your cheeks and use the lighter shade down the center of the nose, across the cheekbones, and on the cupid’s bow to brighten and lift. Side effects include a flushed, flawless complexion reminiscent of your childhood.
