“The inspiration for the collection was early cabaret and burlesque, so I wanted to reference Weimar Berlin without being too literal. The deep red lip is balanced with a gilded eye, defined brows and full lashes. The luminous skin and dewy texture add to the decadence of the look.” explained James.
