Beauty Holiday Issue
The opening scene in the classic 1945 film Christmas In Connecticut shows famous magazine lifestyle guru Elizabeth Lane typing out the recipe to a gourmet Christmas dinner complete with chestnut stuffing and steamed homemade pudding for dessert. But instead of a country estate, she’s typing in a tiny apartment with a sputtering radiator and eating a plate of sardines. She’s conjured up this imaginary life of glamour and beauty that is far from her real life. There is something magical about her escape from reality. I imagine the same thing when I’m scrolling through the holiday beauty collections from Dior, Guerlain and YSL. The exquisite packaging and stylized photos allow you to visit a holiday wonderland through your iPhone or tablet.
This month, we showcase the festive collections from Burberry, Armani, NARS, philosophy and shu uemura. We spotlight the doll lash trend spotted on the fashion catwalks of Paris, Milan and London. And we offer some great gift ideas for fragrance and makeup enthusiasts.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my social media friends around the world for another year of beauty fun. Meeting you has truly enriched my life and I thank you for all the tweets, posts and comments. Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful holiday season and New Year.
