As I promised (I believe I did?) to Kate from http://drivelaboutfrivol.blogspot.com, I have swatched the Tom Ford Stick Foundation in 01 Alabaster (lightest shade), and also done a full face of the day so that you could see what it looks like.
This foundation works heavens with the brush from real techniques (contour brush). Its like they were made for each other. I can buff it in my skin, yet achieve very high coverage if I wish to.
I have severe cysts in my face now (they are even bruised…not good sight). This foundation took away 70-80% of the appearance of those cysts. The rest…I dabbed a bit of Kevyn aucoin SSX-01.
I love the glow it gives to my skin. I love how long lasting it is (even thought I have combo skin now).
I did my best to capture the shade + finish of the foundation. Excuse my gazillion pictures. I couldn’t pick one that would show the entire glory of this foundation.
Oh- Also – Forgive my forehead dye stain. I have just dyed my roots.
For the swatches on natural light + picture of the foundation : Go to PALE FOUNDATION SWATCHES tab 🙂
For the rest of make up I used:
Anastasia brow duo, Guerlain terracotta blush, Nars pressed powder
