Inspired by the works of Marilyn Minter, whose photographs and hyperrealist paintings showcase feminine pleasure in all its glamour and grit, we gave in to a runway-stirred craving for glitter and flash. The holiday season isn’t for being demure, so indulge full-force in all of its delights.
Lust For Luxe
For this daring lip look, try Marc Jacobs Beauty Collector’s Edition Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in Blacquer, available at Sephora.
For maximum impact, blend different shades of M.A.C. glitter, and pat them on with the mixing medium that suits your needs.
For our model’s velvety lips and sparkling green lids, try M.A.C. Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Oh Lady and Giorgio Armani Eye Tint Liquid Eyeshadow in Emeraude.
For ruby-red lips that sparkle like Dorothy’s slippers, try Make Up For Ever Glitters #7. Finish the look with a classic deep-red nail; try CND Vinylux Weekly Polish in Scarlet Letter.
For a subtler (but just as shiny) look for lips, we like Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in 966 Diorosphere.
