The beauty look at Badgley Mischka was rouge princess on the run.
“It’s a Viennese princess leaving the ball to meet her Russian boyfriend at the club,” said lead manicurist Deborah Lippmann, founder and creator of her namesake nail-color brand. Nails were long and almond shaped with two coats of Take the A Train, a metallic pewter shade in a “luxe chrome formula” due out this fall. Lippmann then used a glittering canary yellow polish called Glitter And Be Gay to create a half moon at the cuticle.
For the face, Tom Pecheux for MAC Cosmetics sought to create a “chic, elegant and rich” looking girl. He give the skin a satin finish, and added a pale-pink shade on lips and also on cheeks, where he applied the rosy hue quite low. Eyes were bold and gilded. He applied shimmering gold shades, such as Goldmine eye shadow mixed with MAC Pro Eyeliner Mixing Medium on eye lids offset with liner called Fluidline in Blacktrack. “It’s totally Fifties American,” he said of the eye.
For the hair, Peter Gray for Moroccanoil sought to contrast the opulence of the collection. He began by working Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse at the roots into damp hair. He created a deep diagonal side part and then took two thin strands of hair and twisted and fastened them at the back. In many cases, he applied hair extensions for a bit of femininity and softly trimmed them along the back.

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. 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)
