Tom Ford is clearly a man to whom beautiful things matter: his latest masterpiece is a full 130 product make-up and skincare collection. Whilst bridal beauty is traditionally all about a barely-thereism that is you, but with better genetics and sleep patterns, I secretly really admire a bride who is trailblazing enough to wear colour on her big day.
Given that usual photographic philosophy dictates that luminous pigment, shine and luscious intensity of colour works best on camera, when muted softly-spoken tones of nude, pink and taupe can wash faces out, it seems surprising that so many brides choose to eschew vibrant, radiant make-up. The photographs of your wedding day will last for the rest of your happily married lives, so why would you want to look a touch on the consumptive side? Consider Tom’s hyper-pigmented, luxuriously milled and iconic cosmetics a call to arms.

Personally, I want the entire collection ladled onto my face come wedding day, but if I had to edit, I would plump for the Private Blend Lipstick in Crimson Noir that blends classic grown-up allure with a dazzling sense of style.
Exclusive to Selfridges, Harrods and Harvey Nichols London now. At Tom Ford Private Blend Counters Nationwide from October 9.
