Although combining bold eyes, cheeks, and lips is usually a no-no, with the launch of Tom Ford's full beauty line late last year — and with it, those over-the-top sexy ads — we're sort of inclined to give the retro-sexpot look a go. Of course, we'd like to do it without looking like a total '80s train wreck when it's all said and done. And that's where the newly unveiled Tom Ford Beauty makeup counter at Neiman Marcus comes in. We hit the new shop-in-shop of sorts, armed with our real-girl model, Becca Blanco of Ruby Press, to get a step-by-step tutorial in extra-provocative makeup. Click through to get the low down on how to create the throwback look for yourself, with tips from Mr. Tom Ford himself (!), plus a splurge vs. steal guide to the key products involved.
