You may associate Tom Ford with the man, with ready-to-wear, or even with Tom Ford fragrances. But I strongly urge you not to overlook the brand’s extensive, and incredibly luxe, makeup offerings. With complexion products, color cosmetics, and hybrid skin-makeup products under the Tom Ford beauty umbrella, the brand can (and should) see you through every single step of your makeup routine. High quality ingredients, gorgeous finishes, and long-lasting pigment are part of the beauty brand’s DNA—and you truly can’t go wrong with any products in the line.

That in mind, these products are luxurious and only certain items are without a doubt worth the splurge. Lucky for you, I’ve tried each and every one, from the OG palettes and foundations to the newest launches. My top contenders run the gamut: There’s the limited-edition lip balm I can’t leave the house without, the foundation that’s completely changed my skin, and the bronzer-highlighter duo that’s miraculously able to create the appearance of a chiseled cheekbone. To get the full breakdown on the best Tom Ford makeup products scroll ahead.
