Day to Night with Harrods X Tom Ford Beauty

"I love to be able to match my makeup and 'look' to what I'm doing...."

When it comes to beauty and fashion, I love to be able to match my makeup and 'look' to what I'm doing....if I'm at work, it's polished and business-appropriate....for the weekends, when I'm chilling out in a hoodie and ripped jeans it's a pared-back, natural make up with beach-waves in my hair..... but for a night out with the girls, we're talking all-out glam and sophistication!

I enjoy being able to create different looks, but me...being me, I am forever in a rush to get ready (I'm the world's worst procrastinator!) so products that are quick to use and can be layered to create different looks are my absolute favourite. 

My love affair with Tom Ford Beauty began many years ago with a lipstick purchase....I remember it well... 'Spanish Pink" and it's still one of my favourites to date.  

"As a luxury brand they always seem to get it right..."

As a luxury beauty brand they always seem to get it right.  The eyeshadow quads are buttery smooth and blend effortlessly.  Their fragrance range is phenomenal for both women and men and don't even get me started on those Lips and Boys mini lipsticks - I can't leave a Tom Ford stand without one these days...my current addiction being 'Addison'

It's so easy to make a natural and minimal 'day' look into something seriously sexy and sultry for the evening without having to spend hours and hours in front of the mirror! 


Cream and Powder Eye Colour in 'Peach'

For sunny days I've really enjoyed using the 'Cream and Powder Eye Colour' in 'Peach'.  It's perfect to  blend quickly onto your eyelid with your finger tips to create such a pretty and effortless colour wash in seconds.  

"....it lasts and lasts!"

The shade would suit all eye colours, it's highly pigmented and the best part is that it lasts and lasts! I paired it with a bronzy skin and highlight, a slick of mascara and a coral-toned lipstick.  It's the perfect 'take away on holiday with you' product.  With a quick spritz of 'Soleil Blanc' (Summer in a bottle!) and you're ready!

"...something more glamoruous..."

So as the sun goes down and you're getting ready to go out for the evening it's time to switch this day-time look up for something more glamorous.....

I started with adding the glitter powder shadow from the top of the 'Cream and Powder Eye Colour' and then smoking out the eye using a darker shadow and lots of bronzy eyeliner, making sure it was smudged out for a sultry and sexy look.  In addition to this I added more mascara and contoured my face and added a slightly darker lipstick and a gloss.  Simple!.....and took me less than ten minutes! 

Next....I turned those tousled beach waves into a straight, sleek style and put on a little black dress and some killer heels!

"...the perfect evening scent"

As a final touch I doused myself in Tom Ford 'Black Orchid' which in my opinion is the perfect evening scent.  It's seductive, intoxicating and creamy and has top notes that include black truffle, blackcurrant and citrus.  Middle notes incorporating orchid, gardenia and jasmine and finally dark chocolate, vanilla and sandalwood base notes.   I defy anyone not to love this!  

Some of my favourite scents are from Tom Ford and this is no exception!  Browse the full range of TOM FORD fragrance at Harrods Online. 

I have ordered many a beauty product from Harrods Online over the past few years (being based in Cardiff unfortunately I don't always have easy access to some of my favourite brands sadly!) but have always received impeccable service from Harrods.  The whole process of ordering online is simple  and your products arrive quickly and beautifully packaged and I can't recommend them enough.
