Working with MAC Cosmetics, Kabuki made the eyes the focal point for Zac Posen. “My goal is to have one graphic element,” he said, “while the rest of the face is soft and romantic.”
First, Kabuki brushed a soft pearly powder across the lid and black pencil was smudged under the lower lash line and set with powder. MAC #43 Lashes were applied with black glue gel and coated with Haute and Naughty Too Black Lash Mascara. Then, he used a sweep of black eyeliner to add some drama. To subdue the rest of the eye, brows were toned down with concealer. The face was evened out with Matte Liquid Foundation, and flesh-colored pearly cream was applied to highlight the cheekbones. Finally, Casual Color in Keep It Loose was brushed onto the lips for a nostalgic vibe.
Lead hairstylist Odile Gilbert created a pin curl updo with a few flowers floating throughout. Gilbert began by using Laque Dentelle Flexible Hold Hairspray and combining it with Boucles D’Art to give it a lot of body. Then, she curled thick sections and added Powder Buff Dry Shampoo to give the hair texture. After pinning the curls to the head, Gilbert finished by applying the flowers created by the designer himself.
Gina Edwards, working with Morgan Taylor, created an ombré effect, or a “faded rose garden nail,” using a mauve and pale pink shade called Coming Up Roses and Polished Up. “The inspiration was ultraromantic,” said Edwards. “And the clothes are very similar to this color palette.”

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

@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year.
