The Tom Ford Soleil Collection brings together all you could want from a Summer makeup look into a sensual collection inspired by the warmth of the season. Burnished and metallic tones create smoldering eye looks while the cheeks are given a warm wash of creamy pink color, resulting in the most perfect bronzed and resort-ready makeup. The look is created with a few key products...

Tom Ford Cream and Powder Eye Color - These stunning shadow duos combine one creamy color with a complementary glistening powder hue for a sultry and lustrous eye. They are available in four shades, as shown above, and include Midnight Sea, Black Oyster, Golden Peach, and Naked Bronze. To me, these are immediately a standout piece in this collection, so I'd get my hands on them as quickly as possible. The cream eyeshadow is extremely pigmented, meaning you only need the smallest amount to start and they set almost immediately. I'd suggest working in thin layers to create a more intense wash of color, or top with a bit of the metallic shadow for a glistening, and almost wet eye look. I love that you can create such a variety of looks with just one pot of color thanks to the buildable formula combinations. In the photo above, I went with something out of the norm (and love it), and am wearing the Midnight Sea duo combined with a bit of the powder shade from Black Oyster.

Tom Ford Shimmering Body Oil - This product couldn't have been released at a better time, as my body oil obsession had hit an all-time high. This one is extremely luxurious and contains gold and platinum leaf, which melts into the skin upon application for a beautiful glowing look. The smell of this oil is also intoxicating - white florals wrapped in warm amber and sandalwood - and would be the perfect companion for a Summer getaway. 

Tom Ford Lip Color Sheer - The ever popular TF lipstick gets a Summer update with a beautiful squared off bullet and a sheer and lustrous formula. There are four shades available, and include Rose Soleil, Skinny Dip, Paradiso, and Sweet Spot. The two pictured here are Sweet Spot (left) and Skinny Dip (right), which I am also wearing in the above photos. These are beautifully creamy and can be worn sheer or built up to a more intense and sheeny color.

Tom Ford Cream Cheek Color in Pink Sand - This is a beautiful and universally flattering cream blush, in a stunning pearlized peach-pink color. I love cream blushes during the warmer months as I think they complement a glowing bronzed-goddess look perfectly, and this one is especially pretty. I suggest stippling it into the apples of cheeks and bringing it slightly upward for a bit of warm glow. I like that it contains a subtle luminosity so that there is no need for an additional highlighter, and it sets to a radiant satin finish.

Tom Ford Bronzing Powder - Possibly the most beautiful bronzer ever, the TF bronzer is now available in gold and ivory packaging and two sizes. There is now a smaller, more travel-friendly, size available, which I think is great for those always on-the-go. Here I have the larger sized compact in the shade Terra, the darker of the two available shades. Gold Dust is the slightly lighter bronzer, although the shade Terra works beautifully on my pale skin as either a contour or bronzer. It's the perfect overall warmth-boosting powder and it's silky and lightweight formula makes for perfect blending. It's such a beautiful product and never translates as ruddy or flat on the skin which is something I look for in a bronzer.

Overall, these are stunning pieces to add to your collection and will definitely help create the perfect glowing skinned and bronzed eye Summer look. The quality of these products is perfect and the formulas suit the season so beautifully, with sheer, creamy, and soft textures.
