Casual Weekend FOTD Featuring BITE Beauty + Tom Ford

Above: A casual, springtime look.
Today, this post's wording will be as simple and casual as the look it features...before heading out to run some errands with my mom, I opted for a quick (8 minutes!), clean, nude beige look featuring some of my favorite products and finished with two recent acquisitions: The Tom Ford Translucent Finishing Powder in Ivory Fawn (a gift to myself) and BITE Beauty lipstick in Restina (a gift from a dear friend). 

Above: BITE Beauty Restina is a gorgeous, creamy nude pink that looks lighter on the lips than in the tube.
Above: Tom Ford Translucent Powder in Ivory Fawn has a bit of pigmentation and a seamless, invisible finish.
Above: Restina...creamy, pigmented and extremely hydrating...loving my first foray into BITE Beauty!

Products Used:

Kindly scroll on for more images featuring the full look...

Above: A three product eye...By Terry Ombre Blackstars in Brown Perfection and Bronze Moon (mixed and blended) and two coats of Surratt Beauty Relevee Mascara. 
Above: Bite Beauty Restina alone on the lips...pardon the extraneous hair, resulting from a windy day!
Above: Outdoors with a flash.
Above: In mixed outdoor lighting.
Bottom Line: Warm weekend weather calls for a simple approach to painting one's face...I hope you enjoyed this particular rendition of the nude look! 

Good things ahead on the blog including a swatch heavy review of the Ardency Inn Custom Coverage Concentrate, an April Favorites video (better late than never!), a host of new discoveries and the By Terry Summer 2104 Collection!

xx, thanks for your loyal readership and have a beautiful Saturday,
