The new smokey eye
For his Fall 2020 collection, Tom Ford showcased an array of chic, sensual, and edgy pieces.
While we were losing our minds over the crystal-gown worn by Bella Hadid, we also couldn’t help but be drawn to the luxe bohemian spirit expressed through flower hair clips and feathered earrings. To channel that youthful yet elegant vibe, the make-up focused on a flawless complexion, accent on the eyes and a glossy nude lip. The result is that each woman’s features were enhanced, bringing out her singular beauty – perfect combination for a special event or a date night.
Here is how you can recreate it at home.
A primed complexion is the pre-requisite to achieving a look of light and symmetry so start with TOM FORD RESEARCH SERUM CONCENTRATE and CRÈME CONCENTRATE.
SHADE AND ILLUMINATE SOFT RADIANCE FOUNDATION SPF 50, applied using the new SHADE AND ILLUMINATE BRUSH, brings three-dimensional radiance to the face. Skin is transformed into the perfect smooth canvas to reflect soft light. The SHADE AND ILLUMINATE cream duo is a hero here, it’s dark shade invisibly contours the cheekbones, jawline and temples, helping to draw light to the center of the face, while the highlighter brightens cheekbones’ high points, amplifying the sculpted effect.
The TOM FORD EMOTIONPROOF CONCEALER is gently blended under the eye to conceal imperfections and brighten the eye area, while the TOM FORD SKIN ILLUMINATING POWDER DUO in Moodlight brings ultimate illumination to high points.
An intensely sensual neutral eye is created using tone on tone of richly pigmented colour that delivers intense payoff. On lighter skin, the gold shade from EYE QUAD 04 in Suspicion is swept over the entire lid, then feathered upwards towards the brow. On darker skin, the copper- gold shade from 23 African Violet is used. To create head-turning dimension, light strokes of high-performance TOM FORD EMOTIONPROOF EYELINER in Espresso or Dominateur are feathered effortlessly into the crease and the shimmering, bright copper shade from EYE QUAD 03 in Body Heat is blended on top and extended into the inner corner of the eye.
The lower lash line is smudged with the warm russet shade from 04 Honeymoon. Eyeliner rims the waterline to intensify the look and the TOM FORD EMOTIONPROOF MASCARA adds the final touch. The brow is shaped and defined with light strokes of the TOM FORD BROW SCULPTOR pencil for a natural, filled-in look.
