Hope you all had a lovely Easter Break – I did! #ChocolateOverdosed though…
Those of you who follow me on Instagram already know that I’m a HUGE fan of Tom Ford beauty and their gorgeous fragrance, so I thought I’d share some of this season’s make-up must-haves from their SS16 Runway Collection with you. The collection has been seen in New York and London Fashion Weeks and is now available to us… I love it!
I’d like to start with TOM FORD EYES:
I am head over heels with this Burnished Copper Cream for Eyes. The cream texture is NOT like any other cream eye-shadows I’ve ever tried. It’s so light, goes over the eye-lid so smoothly (I applied mine with a brush) and doesn’t feel wet, yet not too dry either if that makes sense? I always hated cream eye-shadows until this one and it’s the wetness of them in particular that put me off and that feeling of my eye lids stick together when I blinked – eww! So releaved these creams for eyes are nothing like that.
You only need a tiny little dot on your brush for the entire eye-lid, but you can build it up to a more dramatic smokey eye for evenings. I used my High Definition Eye-liner in Slate to define the shape and the depth on the outer of the lashes and as you can see, both work really well together.
The new Tom Ford patent lip is probably the best lipstick / lipgloss I have ever worn. No exaggeration. Are you like me and always try avoiding wearing lip-glosses when you have your hair down? It’s guaranteed that most glosses will stick to our hair and smudge it all over our cheeks. Worse if it’s red or pink, right?
Well, this Tom Ford patent lip colour is different. Again, light to apply and NOT sticky at all – yay! I literally have one coat on of the Stolen Cherry in these pictures and not only did it stay on for hours, but I also completely forgot I had anything on my lips. Not a feeling you get with most lip glosses.
This SS16 Runway collection is stunning and to me, gives us this “difficult to achieve” catwalk look in seconds with simple and smart new beauty inventions. It’s all about defining your eyes and complementing your eye-colour / shape and it’s just amazing that I literally need 2 things to achieve my smokey eye in under 2 minutes.
And lips… On days that I can’t be bothered wearing eye make-up and need something to brighten up my face and overall look, the patent lip is all I need. The fact that it’s so hassle-free and pleasant to wear makes me want to wear it all the time, but I’ve yet to test whether it’s “kiss-friendly” as I’ve been avoided when I wear it which can only mean one thing – it looks sticky and super bright…
I’ve also had the pleasure to check out some of the SOLEIL TOM FORD Beauty and Fragrance collection when I met up with Tom Ford Beauty team last week. I’m in heaven… So high that I’ve booked myself for the full on counter experience with Tom Ford in May when everything launches. Can’t wait to tell you more about that then.
Also this week I’m working on an exciting project with ARMANI (check me!) and eating the rest of the Chocolate Easter Eggs this week! What are you up to?
