The beauty teams have been doing their rounds over the last few weeks, showing all us beauty writers and editors just what goodies are on counter this summer. Now, we love to see everyone of course, but I must say I was particularly excited to see what Tom Ford had pulled from the hat for the new season. And this year getting a sneak peek at the Tom Ford Soleil Collection for 2017 was a little like, well, Christmas in Spring.
Always seriously classy, always luxe, bringing bling without the cheese, Tom Ford has the ability to make beauty fanatics drool and swoon with each new collection. This year’s Tom Ford Soleil collection for summer is no exception. With the highlighter lighting up social media feeds, the collection is full of dressing table delights and handbag honeys for us to lust over in the sun (and look gorgeous in of course).
The collection is inspired by shades that reflect the contrast between ‘Sun-kissed’ and ‘Sunset’ in a sensuous series of bronzers, highlighters, and lip colours. So for all you beauty queens out there, here’s a run down of our favourites from the collection so you can pick what you like (or buy the lot if you’re feeling a bit rockfella).
Tom Ford The Ultimate Bronzer
The Tom Ford Ultimate Bronzer features a silky, lightweight liquid powder formula to highlight your skin’s natural radiance. It’s housed in a stunning ivory and gold trimmed compact, embossed with the signature crosshatch design and the TF logo. RRP £72.00
Tom Ford Soleil Contouring Compact
Three summer shades in one limited-edition ivory and gold compact. Blush, highlighter, and bronzer add dimension and colour in a cream-like powder formula. Pink blush gives cheeks the perfect flush, pink highlighter mimics sun-kissed skin, and sultry bronzer enhances a healthy radiance. Use shades alone or together to craft your own seductive, natural glow. RRP £78.00
Tom Ford Sheer Highlighting Duo
The sheer highlighting duo is a handbag version of his iconic ivory compact with gold trimming. Inspired by the colours of the sunrise and sunset, these stunning shades can be worn as face highlighter or luminous eye shadow. RRP £58.00
Tom Ford Cream and Powder Eye Color in Young Adonis and Sun Worship
These two-tiered eye colour pairs are one of our favourite Tom Ford products, with the two coveted formulas creating lustrous and sexy eye possibilities.
