*Title supplied by subject to describe her look.
New Year’s Eve parties are the perfect excuse to go completely over-the-top glam. And that includes your make-up. But if your creative coloring skills cause passersby to wonder if you’ve just come from your performance under the big top—not, by the way, the desired effect—turn to Shu Uemura. On December 28, the Japanese cosmetic company’s Fillmore boutique will be hosting one-on-one consultations with celebrity make-up artist Gina Brooke, who’s created looks for such glamzillas as Madonna, Naomi and Giselle. Here, you can go for a pre-party test run with those foxy cheek-grazing faux fur diamante lash extensions or a dramatic red-hot lip with beauty back-up on hand.
For the day: leather jacket by Ever ($750); dress by Alexander Wang ($475); boots by Joie ($420).
