TOM FORD Beauty epitomizes the height of luxury in all things cosmetics and skincare related. Everything from the gold gilded packaging through to the luxe texture of Mr. Ford’s complexion powders feel opulent.
One of the latest installments from TOM FORD Beauty is titled the Face Focus 2015 Collection (which has just landed in-stores in the past couple of weeks!), featuring an array of complexion enhancers that encapsulate state-of-the-art formulations in shades that enhance and accentuate your natural beauty. Think highlighters hues of glistening bronze and champagne, finely-milled face powders and radiance-boosting primers.
Accent that gorgeous, glowing goddess complexion with a heavenly TOM FORD private-blend fragrance. The latest addition to this collection, Fleur de Portofino, is ever so perfect for Spring.
Complexion Enhancing Primer
By now, we’re sure you’re well versed in all things primer-related, so there is no need for us to tell you why you need a primer. But this one – is gold. Tom Ford’s skin perfecting base is incredibly hydrating and appears a little more like a liquid bronzer in the peach glow shade at first glance. Upon application, the primer melts into your skin and counteracts any dullness and subtly blurs imperfections. I love the fact that it is tinted, it makes it the perfect companion to achieve that ‘no-makeup-makeup-look’ that is so on-trend at the moment. I am certain it will be a Summer staple in many makeup bags. Swap your heavier Winter foundations and powders and make the most of how much this multi-tasking primer brightens your complexion and wear it alone or under a light, dewy tinted moisturizer or BB-cream.
Silky and soft – this micro-fine powder glides onto your face and never, ever looks cakey or heavy. It has a buildable light to medium coverage and can be worn on it’s own atop a primer or used to finish or set a hydrating foundation. The luminous finish means it’s the perfect powder for those who despise, well, powder, as you can still achieve a glowing, luminous complexion, sans a shiny T-zone (there’s a BIG difference between a dewy and oily!).
Skin Illuminating Powder Duo
The crown jewel of the latest Tom Ford collection is the limited edition Skin Illuminating Powder Duo. Highlight and illuminate your best features to create a multi-dimensional glow. One of the powders is a light, shimmering bronze shade with subtle, very fine white gold shimmer infused throughout. Think of using it as an alternative to blush and to accent your facial structure, like you would a bronzer. The candlelight shade is a shimmering pale yellow gold with luminous sheen. It’s an incredibly long-lasting powder highlighter and is perfect to illuminate your cheekbones, brow bones and the bridge of your nose.
Fleur de Portofino Eau de Parfum
Vibrant, energizing, floral, fresh and carefree are all words that come to mind when describing this special scent. It’s your very own Mediterranean coastal escape and luxe bouquet of fresh blooms on demand – combining notes of jasmine, Moroccan rose, magnolia, acacia honey, Sicilian lemon, Calabrian bergamot and orange blossom. This fragrance is so fresh and uplifting, perfect for the warmer Spring days ahead.
Complete your collection and mimic the sparkling, sun-drenched Italian Amalfi coast with the other scents available in this collection such as Neroli Portofino (one of my all-time absolute favourite scents) and Mandrino de Amalfi, a zesty yet sweet and fresh fragrance.
