EOTD: Tom Ford Quad - Cognac Sable

Cognac Sable isn't known as one of Tom Ford's more "natural" palettes as it's more shimmery and particularly has one very glittery copper shade that is difficult to use day to day. However, it is possible to put together a very natural look using all 4 shades if the copper is tapped onto the middle of the lid only, giving a surprisingly sheer but noticeable glimmer when blinking. 
See my original review of this quad here.

I thought I'd also show how well Tom Ford's eyeshadow holds up, as the eye photos are taken 8 hours after initial application, with no primer underneath (and I also have oily lids).

The numbers correspond to where the shadows go
1 - inner corner highlight
2 - pat on the center of lid as the last step
3 - crease color
4 - liner (can smoke out if desired)

Finish the look with brown eyeliner and black mascara, and off we go...

The overall look is classy and fairly natural looking, with the noticeable copper glitter when blinking. Depending on how much makeup you wear day to day, this could be worn to work if you skip the copper, or add the copper for a dinner out.
