The Holiday Party Look: Satin Jewel Tones
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the 140+ people who now call Glossier their work home are competitive. Intensely so. The game of Capture The Flag we played at the company offsite last summer was almost deadly. (It was 50 on 50 and no one won.) So when it was announced a few weeks ago that this year’s company holiday party would be 007-themed, with designated Bond villains and MI6 agents, competition started to brew. Would there be some sort of murder mystery game? Should the government team be strategizing? Would there be a hotly contested costume competition?
None of this will be answered until Thursday when Glossier HQ actually throws down. In the meantime, let’s touch briefly on that last point above. Maybe it’s not an actual costume competition, but that doesn’t mean the entire staff won't arrive serving full lewks. At least not if the water cooler conversation is to be believed. And we at ITG believe it's our sovereign duty to provide inspiration in times like this. Hence this year's pair of Holiday Party Looks. Screw the clothes (wear some, maybe); this year, it's about the makeup. More is more. Four out of five dentists agree. As does makeup artist Benjamin Puckey: "After seasons of minimalist makeup I had the urge to go for bold jewel toned eyes that stand out with their maximalist feel," he told us. And we encouraged him give in to the urge. As should we all—we're right there with you.
