There is no better red lipstick than a Tom Ford red, so I was super excited when the people at Tom Ford Beauty sent me some products to try and included the necessary ingredients to recreate the bold lips of so many Tom Ford ad campaigns. Since I wanted the lips to be the main focus I kept the rest of the makeup simple, but with a 50s vibe.
First I applied NARS Biarritz shadow to the entire lid from lashline to brow.
Next I blended NARS Blondie shadow onto the eye socket bone just above the crease. You want to put this color just above the crease so it is visible when your eyes are open, just be sure to blend so there are no hard edges.
Then I applied Blacktrack to the outer corners of the eyes and winged the liner very slightly.
Last for the eyes, I applied Haute & Naught mascara, using the light separating wand first, followed by the dramatic volumizing wand.
For the lips I began by lining the with NARS Jungle Red Lip Liner. This color is a little darker and more blue than the Tom Ford red, but I often like to line red lips in a slightly darker color because it add dimension to the lips. If you do this be sure to blend the darker liner down onto the lip so you don’t end up with an early 90s dark-liner-light-lip thing.
Last I applied Tom Ford Wild Ginger to the lip all the way up to and covering the lip liner and finished it off with Lost Cherry Ultra Shine Lip Gloss.
*Now I just need a pair of TF glasses I think.
