London: American designer Tom Ford says make-up is a key accessory as it helps in transforming outfits.

"Having worked with the best make-up artists and photographers, I know how make-up can transform," femalefirst.co.uk quoted the 50-year-old as saying. "If you take Audrey Hepburn`s little black dress in `Breakfast at Tiffany`s` and change the hair and make-up, you can make it look like the 20s or the 90s. Make-up is a key accessory."

Right now Ford prefers smoky eye.

"I like a dramatic, smoky eye. Rim it with a darker shade, then apply lighter shades on the lid and blend as you move up. The key is to mix smoky tones in, so it doesn`t look too 60s," he said.
