Tom Ford Beauty

Thomas Carlyle, better known as Tom Ford, defined double breasted chic fashion of the nineties as creative director of Gucci.   In 2005 the Texan native launched his own brand, TOM FORD, starting with men's ready to wear has since expanded women's RTW and accessories, currently holding forty nine freestanding stores throughout the world. In fall of 2011,  TOM FORD Beauty is born, an alliance formed with EsteĆ© Lauder with a complete make up and cosmetic collection.
Because it's become a known truth in the fashion world that anything Tom touches turns to gold, Cinched at the Waist ventured to Neiman Marcus for the debut of Tom Ford Beauty.
The Tom Ford Beauty look is intended to make a woman feel and look natural with a 'full on make up' look.  Hence the motto, 'nude is full on make up.' Three simple terms to remember with TOM FORD beauty: Radiant Skin, A flawless complexion, & Glamour with sensuous color.

Radiant Skin: begins with the intensive infusion daily moisturizer, revitalizing the eyes with the intensive infusion eye treatmentand illuminating the face with illuminating protective primer - all "intense infusion" products are composed of a special blend of antioxidants to help fight against the environment, and caffeine to help bring back firmness and diffuse fine lines.

Flawless complexion: The look of TOM FORD beauty is based on creating symmetry.The line's most popular beauty product is Shade and Illuminate.  Unique in its class, Shade & Illuminate is the first product in the cosmetic industry to focus on contouring cheekbones. At Cinched at the Waist, were all about creating facial definition, with the allusion of high cheekbones.  Side note: Nancy uses at least three different shades of blush to accomplish the look. Bless TOM FORD beauty for offering one product to kill three birds with one: shade & illuminate.

EYES: Eyes, eyebrows, under eyes - it all needs lovin'!  Ford also introduced the beauty world to another AMAZE product, the beauty brow sculptor, a three in one eyebrow calligraphy thin to wide tip, sharpener and grooming brush.  The eyebrow pencil defines and enhances the features of your face.

Try and ignore my cracked lips (in which were later brought to life with Tom Ford lipstick's exotic butter ingredients) and look at the major eyebrow contouring going on here via Tom Ford Brow Sculptor.
The golden mink eye color quad is designed in a 'quad' with shades that complement eyes while achieving multiple looks as you transform from day to night.
