Curtain call


- JAGUAR F-TYPE -spot_img

Velvet, the middleman between matte and glitter, hits the box office, bringing a look of glamour and luxury inspired by iconic cinema.

Red carpet

The perennial favorite lip color, crimson, is both classic and modern. Swipe on a gloss-lipstick hybrid like NARS Velvet Lip Glide for long-lasting yet comfortable wear. You can also use a highly pigmented creamy lipstick like M.A.C Liptensity and lessen the sheen by lightly dabbing on Laura Mercier Universal Invisible Loose Setting Powder or an eye shadow similar in color, using your fingers to achieve the velvety texture. Complete the Old Hollywood look with a flawless base, thanks to these highly-recommended liquid products: La Mer The Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation, NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint, or Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation. For added coverage, top and set your base with Make Up For Ever Velvet Finish Compact Powder.

Screen siren

Imbibe the glamour down to your fingertips. For the holidays, a deep, rich aubergine (O.P.I Rich & Brazilian) is mysterious and mesmerizing to the eyes—not too dark, not too bright—and makes your hands look brighter at the same time.

Perfect in pink

Trade in your browns for shades of plum or red (Try NARS x Sarah Moon Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Indes Galentes). Instead of traditional contouring, sculpt the face with different shades of blush—a new technique called “draping,” which takes cues from the ‘60s and ‘70s style of adding angles to the face. The result is a fresh, perfect flush.

In technicolor

Go bold or go home! Stand out against a sea of neutrals with a splash of color on your lids. M.A.C Spellbinder Shadow packs intense color payoff to draw attention to you—in a good way, that is.
