Tom Ford certainly likes to keep us on our toes. The ace designer’s latest limited edition make-up collection may be for spring 2015 but it is packed with the sort of jewel shades we normally see in the run-up to Christmas. Why? Well, the collection has been created to complement his subversively seductive Ready to Wear and takes inspiration from 1970s rock ‘n’ roll – the era of Glam Rock.
Among the highlights of the range are the new Tom Ford Eye Color Duos (£46) which each comprise a dark metallic shade plus a light, opaline one which, used over another colour, can change it as subtly or dramatically as you like. The three colour ways are Ripe Plum, Crushed Indigo and Raw Jade – the last-mentioned being the one I recently tried during a wonderful makeover by Scott at the Tom Ford counter at Frasers. It is a beautiful complement to blue eyes and would be a versatile way to instantly update your look for this spring.
I also fell in love with the two new shades of Tom Ford Nail Lacquer (£26 each): Black Jade and, especially, the gorgeous Indigo Night (pictured left and above on model). To match the Ripe Plum eye look, the recommended polish is a Tom Ford classic, Bitter Bitch.
