Tom Ford Lipstick
Co-founder of BeautyBible.com Sarah Stacey shares the ultimate guide to fashion designer Tom Ford’s exquisitely alluring lipsticks and nail colour range.
For Tom Ford, there’s no more dramatic accessory than perfect lips: "they’re the focus of the face," he says. So when the infinitely stylish fashion designer turned to creating cosmetics, he gave women a world of exquisitely alluring lipsticks, writes Sarah Stacey co-founder of [BeautyBible.com](https://www.beautybible.com/). Not only is there a wardrobe of essential shades – from chic neutrals to vivid brights, matte to shimmer, with gorgeous glosses to slick on top (or wear alone) - they are chockfull of natural and hi-tech ingredients to give a luscious creamy texture and dense lustrous colour that won’t bleed. You don’t need a lip brush to apply them perfectly, plus the casings are so gorgeous you'll want to touch up in public. If lips are one of the first things people notice about us, just think how much our hands are on view. So alongside the galaxy of lippies, there’s a stellar range of gloss-and-shine nail lacquers with a special ‘bendable’ coating to keep them colour-true and flake-free. A self-confessed perfectionist "who lusts for beauty in all things", Tom Ford offers an oh-so-glam and totally wearable collection for every skintone and occasion.

Team bright lips with crisp white separates or morph monochrome into something sizzling. Don't go matchy-matchy with finger and toes: try lips in Flamingo 08, a delectable clear rose pink for all skin tones, with hint-of-pink Toasted Sugar on fingernails, then adorn toes with deep amethyst African Violet. Nail Lacquer in Toasted Sugar, £27; Lip Color in Flamingo 08, £38; Nail Lacquer in African Violet, £27

Nudes look fabulous against tanned skin. This season’s nudes hark back to the 60s: rock the look with come-to-bed lashes and voluptuous lips. Load on Extreme Mascara, then slick lips with the misleadingly named Chastity (an iridescent petal-pink sheer) or Sable Smoke (a tinge of caramel). Top with Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Naked. Lip Color Shine in Chastity, £38; Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Naked, £33; Mascara Extrême in Raven 01, £34

Fingernails are short again this season, which is a boon for most women. They look fabulous in on-trend brights such as Crimson Fire or Coral Blame, or go more dramatic with Bordeaux Lust (the names say it all really). But a word of warning: leave plenty of time to do your nails in these colours – one mis-stroke and they’re ruined. So if you’re in a hurry, go with Naked or Toasted Sugar. Nail Lacquer in Ginger Fire, Coral Blame or Bordeaux Lust, £27

For 9-5, choose a perfect soft rosy pink. Indian Rose is the classic and should be a staple in every woman’s handbag. If you like a lippy with a tinge of caramel, try Sable Smoke – fabulous against white or creamy complexions. For evening, glam up with a coat of Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Tawny Pink and pair with chic neutral Naked on your hands, for the cleanest, freshest nails. Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Tawny Pink, £33; Nail Lacquer in Naked 01, £27; Lip Color Indian Rose 08, £38
