The moment I saw the above photo of the model wearing makeup from the new 2016 Tom Ford Soleil Collection, I knew I had to have it. I’ve never been more drawn to a collection of products. Something about the picture had me captivated with this makeup. It captured the essence of summer in the most exotic and sultry way. As soon as I took a close look at this collection, I couldn’t wait for the call informing me it had arrived. I purchased quite a few things in this new collection, but this is close up look at the contouring palette. I’m also giving one away to one of my beloved followers.
I think the most spectacular piece in the Soleil Collection is the Contouring Palette. This is the first luxury palette from Tom Ford and a limited edition. Tom Ford has named it Afternooner and it has three summer shades to create the perfect sun-kissed look. The elegant ivory palette is sleek with gold trim. It’s simply beautiful and comes with a soft ivory dust bag to avoid scratches if you carry the palette in a purse or travel with it. The makeup in the palette is embossed with the Tom Ford logo with tiny textured diamond pattern. It’s so elegant! It’s hard to take that first swipe with your brush!
The shades in the palette are a cream-like powder that create a soft even finish. They can be mixed together to create different looks. In the photo above with the model, I was informed by a Tom Ford artist that the cheeks were done with a blend of the blush and bronzer in the palette. The blush is a gorgeous matte coral. Mixed with the bronzer it does create the exact tone you see on the model in the photo. The bronzer is also matte with warm undertones. The highlighter in the palette can be blended with either of the matte shades to incorporate some shimmer but there is no glitter in the highlighter shade. It’s a subtle nude with light reflecting properties that creates a soft finish without any metallic or glittery effect. The colors provide sheer to medium coverage.
