Cocoa Mirage Brown Smoky Eye + Matte Berry Lip FOTD tutorial

Tom Ford Cocoa Mirage Eyeshadow Look with Burberry Pink Azalea Lipstick

After picking up Tom Ford Cocoa Mirage quad at the end of last year, I found myself reaching for it almost daily.  For most of January I was in Perth- working and living out of a suitcase, so it was fantastic having such a versatile palette which can work with other shadows or on it’s own. 

When I couldn’t be bothered to think about what to wear on my eyes (in the morning before work, or on my way out to drinks), I would do this super simple brown smoky eye. The concentration of the liner and shadows on the outer corners gives a subtle doe eyed look, and I’ve avoided lining the waterline to make it wearable for day and night- and work with both nude lips and bold lips. 

Nothing groundbreaking here, but I thought it would be nice to show you what the shadows from the Cocoa Mirage quad look like as they’re layered step by step.
