From The Art & Design Issue: The Shining

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.

Bright Side

For maximum impact, blend different shades of M.A.C. glitter, and pat them on with the mixing medium that suits your needs.
