MILAN — To counter the color and embellishment of the Emilio Pucci spring 2014 collection, makeup artist Lisa Butler went understated.
Working with MAC Cosmetics, she matched each model's skin color to Face and Body Foundation and then deepened it with the darkest color in the foundation range. It was added to moisturizer and rubbed into skin, including arms and legs.
"It's a way of making someone look darker, dirtier and moodier without the orange-brown tint of bronzers or tan,” Butler explained. The bridge of the nose and cheeks were highlighted with Strobe Cream and cheeks were flushed with In The Mode from the Spring 14 Trend Forecast Lip palette. With a waxy eyebrow pencil, Butler dotted small freckles around the nose.
Lips were treated with a mixture of In The Mode and New Groove, and eyelids were dusted up to the brow in a mix of Cultivating Chic and March Mist.
Hairstylist Luigi Murenu created a side-swept style that he described as, "sexy, tussled hair that's sport on one side and glamour on the other.”
Using Kérastase products, he ran Mousse Bouffante through dry hair and raked with tongs. Deeply crested on the right, the front, left lank was loaded with Lift Vertiage to support the eye-covering swoosh of hair. A touch of Nutritive Vinyle Nutri-Sculpt Wax was rubbed on hair ends.

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
