*Sisley-Paris Suypremÿa Eye ($310): Like the rest of the innovative Suypremya anti-aging line, Surpremya Eye is a luxe problem solver. It targets dark circles, puffiness, lack of firmness, crow’s feet, and wrinkles and you only need a few drops of this silky serum at nighttime.

I admit it. I can’t resist luxe beauty and would rather treat myself to one drop dead fabulous lipstick than a makeup bag full of uninspiring shades in Plain Jane cases.
Tom Ford never disappoints. His cosmetics collection is exquisite in every way – beginning with the glorious black packaging with matte gold accents engraved with TF. The sensuous experience of opening the glossy box to find a little black velvet pouch will make your heart quiver. Every minute detail is flawlessly executed.
Take the eye shadows for example. Each Eye Color Quad ($78) is pure perfection. The 7 shade combinations are thoughtfully matched to create the most beautifully dressed eyelids. With names like Titanium Smoke and Golden Mink, the looks are timeless and elegant. Each quad has a touch of glamorous shimmer along with silky matte shades to dress your eyes up or down as desired.
The Eye Defining Pen ($55) is a double-sided liquid liner in black lets you can choose the look you want – from subdued and subtle to all out drama. It glides on flawlessly.
The Lip Colors ($49) are equally brilliant. The texture is creamy and they go on super smoothly. They are infused with soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil to add hydration and conditioning. The colors are flattering and wearable for all skin tones and lip shapes – even thin lips can benefit from the lighter beautifying shades in the collection. Among my favorite neutrals are Blush Nude and Spanish Pink, but the deeper pigments are equally gorgeous. Try Crimson Noir for a stunning oxblood lip look or Casablanca for a dark mauve tone. For a moister lip with a glossy sheen, there are also 10 sultry shades of Lip Color Shine.
Like his coveted fragrance collection, Tom Ford’s cosmetics are an ideal marriage of fashion, form and function. Unlike some designers who dabble in beauty or merely license their name out, the statement his pieces make is one of seductive opulence. Wear them and feel instantly confident and feminine.

‘Tis the season tanaholics long for—the time to show off their bronze goddess supremacy. Snooki and JWoww are not alone when it comes to the abuse of bronzers, self tanners, and spray tans. But orange streaks and sparkly cheeks are not a forgone conclusion for gals in search of some safe summer color without nuking their skin.
There are some tricks to knowing how and also how much bronzer to apply without crossing the fab to fake line. Choose a shade that is not too dark for you—about one shade deeper than your natural skin tone—and go lightly. Avoid coming to a complete stop at your jawline and leaving a visible line of demarcation. Apply bronzer where you would naturally tan (fore
