“Anthony’s collection is magical – very sexy, very luxurious, very fresh, very young. All of those elements combined inspired me to create a ‘Paris by night’ look, with the focus on the eyes,” said lead makeup artist Tom Pecheux, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director. “For me, the eyes represent the Parisian woman, it’s her signature. Anthony is a young designer, and it is important to keep the makeup young and fresh.”

“The focus is on the eyes – black with a touch of burgundy and smudged, and a lot of mascara.  I added a touch of gloss on the eyelid for an overall glamorous, imperfect, ‘lived-in’ look.”

“The dark green nail color compliments the luxurious but cool fashion. The skin is very natural and fresh, so this deep shade gives a strong Winter spirit and a nice finishing touch. The shade is very dark, almost black, and the glow of the light reflects the green shade. I love the sophisticated rebel and offbeat spirit of this green shade. It’s very light metallic finish gives the shade a beautiful glow,” said manicurist Christina Conrad for Estée Lauder.
