“Donna wanted an eccentric feeling with a twist,” said Charlotte Tilbury, working for MAC Cosmetics, of the makeup look she created at the Donna Karan show.
To achieve the look, she applied MAC’s Comfort Cream and Studio Finish concealer to perfect skin, then used Sculpting Cream in Pure Sculpture to contour the face, particularly under the cheekbones. Next, she applied Pearl Creme Colour Base on the cheekbones to catch the light, also applying hints of it at the bridge of the nose, down the center of the nose and at the bow of the lip and down the center of the lips for luminescence. The eyes were the focal point of the look: to create them, Tilbury mixed MAC’s Diva and Partyline lipsticks to create a chocolate-covered cherry hue, then applied it with a brush to the lid and outward. Tilbury skipped mascara, instead choosing to fill in brows with Fling and Lingering brow pencils.
Eugene Souleiman, working with Wella Professionals at the show, created an asymmetric rolled chignon. “It’s very Forties,” he said. “There are lots of hats and lots of tailoring in this collection, and it complements the look.” Souleiman began by spraying hair with Ocean Spritz for a bit of texture — “I didn’t want hair to be too shiny, either,” he noted — and then swept hair across the crown of the head to the left side, rolling and pinning it so the pins were hidden. “It’s an easy look, but elegant and delicate,” he said.
Deborah Lippmann created the upper-class-girl version of nail art with a two-toned nail. The nail bed was painted with Fashion, a neutral taupe shade, while tips were finished with Single Ladies, a deep red. Both shades are from her namesake collection.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham.

Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
