"In beauty, the fine details have the greatest impact” - Tom Ford

Make for an impactful and alluring beauty look this party season with a few tips and tricks, as revealed by some of our Destination Party digital style stars and Tom Ford himself...

The Eyes...
“A smoky eye is easy and it works. It’s my go-to. I like to wear it with no lip. I feel for evening make-up it’s one or the other - a strong lip or a statement eye. It’s more modern when just one is accentuated," says Fashion Director Anya Ziourova.

The Brows...
"Brows must be groomed but natural looking. I’m about structured, beautiful, arched, brows." - Tom Ford.

The Skin...
"Beautiful and glowing skin touched with a bit of hot colour is alluring and sexy. Balanced and symmetrical features help create a beautiful face. Monochromatic colour tones can enhance and define the features, achieving a timeless, sensuous and polished look." - Tom Ford.

The Base...
“My signature look with make-up is keeping a good base. I do a make-up technique called ‘baking’ where you leave your powder on to set much deeper - leaving it on for 15 minutes. It gives you a really matte finish. During party season, skin can get quite oily but when you bake your make-up you can avoid that happening." - Patricia Otegwu of Patricia Bright.

The Highlighting...
After 'baking' and mattifying, it's about highlighting and contouring. Once you have the perfect base you can put anything on it, like a painting." - Patricia Otegwu.

The Lips...
"For my typical party beauty look I always have my hair slicked back because I think that’s really sexy. I do bare face with a dark lip and always with my cat eye." - Vanessa Hong of The Haute Pursuit.

"Lips are a woman’s most alluring and sensual feature. Luminous, semi-transparent lip colour is seductive in a very kissable way," adds Tom Ford.

The Nails...
"Perfectly lacquered nails complete your look, whether you have one signature look or you love to transform yourself with colour.” - Tom Ford

The Scent...
“In terms of fragrance I’m very loyal. I’ve been wearing TOM FORD Black Orchid for the last 10 years. I really like scents that are a bit more unisex, that have a musk to them and a little bit of mystery." - Vanessa Hong.

With Fashion...
"I believe you can always change the impression of the dress with make-up and hair. First I’ll decide what I’m going to wear, then I’ll decide the make-up to change up the attitude of the dress and make it different." - Meric Kucuk of Maritsa.co.
