Ghosts of Christmas makeup past: Clé de Peau 2010 holiday vintage palette
Color Connection #8

MM Holiday 2012/Winter 2013 exhibition

2012.holiday.2013.winter.poster.1pp

I wanted this year's holiday/winter exhibition to have sort of a retro vibe to it.  I wasn't sure exactly what period - anything from the 1920s (I was very inspired by Boots No. 7 Deco Darling collection and Clé de Peau's 2010 holiday palette) through the '50s (Too-Faced Life of the Party palette, Bobbi Brown Party Shimmerbrick and MAC holiday 2012 eye palette all have a 50s feel).  But I knew I wanted it to have an old-school glamour about it and an emphasis on snow, which I think the exhibition poster captures perfectly - silver and gold and stylized snowflakes.  I also chose pale grey paper with golden shimmer for the exhibition labels.  So I guess the theme would be snowy vintage glam?  In any case, enjoy!

Elegance Fabulous Rouge palette...while this was a spring release, the red and green signaled Christmas to me, and the shape of the lace pattern reminded me of pizzelle cookies - making these is a holiday tradition on my mom's side of the family.
