Where there's heat, there's...Tom Ford. First, the über-designer ignited the fashion world with his clothing collections for Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent; now he's set the beauty industry ablaze with the introduction of a 14-item cosmetics line called Tom Ford Estée Lauder Collection. Based on his track record, the man clearly knows from sexy, so we asked him for a few seduction-guaranteed beauty tips. On the following pages, his seven hottest hints.

"Go for 24-karat-gold lips."
According to Hollywood lore, Marlene Dietrich demanded that makeup artist Max Factor sprinkle real gold dust into her hair to make it appear as if it were gleaming on film. Wearing golden makeup can have the same impact on your features when viewed in sultry, low lighting. So to offset a come-hither gaze and give your mouth a flirty finish, layer on translucent gold lipstick.
Tip: If gold lipstick alone doesn't "pop" enough for you, layer it over your everyday lip color to give it added dimension.
