|Above: My first FOTD of 2015.|
Earlier this week, my mom and I were in LA for a meeting and, much to our suprise, it began raining. Although she brought a coat with a hood, I was in no way prepared for the deluge that continued well into the evening. Instead of buying yet another umbrella, I opted for this TopShop hat...it artfully blocked the rain and, I daresay, it just might come in handy again this winter. For my first FOTD of 2015, I am happy to include said hat, along with some classic favorites (including the newly procured Zelens Lip Enhancer) for a clean and subtle look.
Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches, images of the products in action and a very special Bottom Line...

|Above: After loving the Suqqu Frame Fix foundation, I was tempted to order the standard Suqqu Foundation in shade #25 (a perfect match for my NC 25 skin) from Harrod's in the UK.|
|Above: I adore the Tom Ford Cream Eyeshadow in Platinum...the soft, glowing taupe has really grown on me over the past month. It is marvelous for a subtly shaded eye and, once applied, is entirely budge-proof.|

|Above: I have been completely smitten with the Zelens Age Control Foundation (reviewed HERE) and, consequently, couldn't wait to try the translucent pink Lip Enhancer.|
