Adding a creative twist to one of our most popular fashion features, "Out of the Box," The Cut has charged three industry insiders with an unusual proposition: we pick the products, you have your way with them.
Curated by The Cut’s own beauty editor, each box was filled with seven all-new items from the Marc Jacobs Beauty line for our tastemakers to use however they’d like for one full week, documenting their experience every step of the way.
From uptown to downtown, the catwalk to the sidewalk, and daytime to party time, click through to see how our focus group of fashionistas wielded the same set of brushes, blushes and wands to create wildly different looks.
Get the scoop on our three stylish tastemakers below, and click through the slideshow for daily updates on who wore what (and how) in our first installment of the Beauty Box Challenge.
Note: Marc Jacobs Beauty items are available only at Sephora or select Marc Jacobs stores.
DJ/entrepreneur Hannah Bronfman is busy, whether she’s jet-setting to L.A. to play an A-list party or mingling at an invite-only, red-carpet event. But part of being a girl-about-town means always being on the go, which can make scheduling a hair appointment challenging. Her recently launched app Beautified acts like a personal assistant on your smartphone (sorry, Siri) letting users book last-minute beauty appointments at salons and spas in NYC, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
A global citizen with a passion for travel, fashion, and art, Alexis Maida has turned her muses into a career. From a stylish office space located on Mercer Street in Soho, she launched Magic Creative in 2012, as a boutique creative agency for defining and building brands, all while working as the editor-at-large for Muse magazine, a bilingual fashion quarterly which juxtaposes Italian and English texts for an international look and feel.
Actress, model, and fashion blogger Christina Caradona chronicles her every fabulous move—outfit and hair day—in her envy-inducing blog Trop Rouge with a little help from her photographer friends. From a far-flung film festival to just a regular old day on the streets of New York City, Caradona pulls off flawless style with a certain je ne sais quo that only a French girl can.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
