You know the unspoken but completely authoritive Beauty Rule Of The Universe, right? It goes like this: If Tom Ford says wear something, you wear it.
This is the certainly the case for the intimitable American designer’s Eye Color Quad in Lavender Lust ($85), a rich foursome of lavender, plum, aubergine and purple hues that some together on the eyes in an incredibly wearable and sophisticated way. Whether you choose to just sweep one of the lighter shades across your entire eye—lid to browbone and pile on mascara or go for a full blown smoke using the richer shadows smudged out from the crease, you’ll stand out in a the sea of black and brown, knowing you are at one with Mr. Ford.
