nuBest @ the nassau county museum of art's museum ball
last friday, the nassau county museum of art held its annual museum ball at oheka castle in huntington (the very first time the museum has chosen an off-site venue for the elegant evening!). the theme of this year's ball, a perennial fixture on the north shore social calendar, was once upon a time, and the event was, quite fittingly, out of a fairy tale.
one of the highlights of the evening was a fashion show featuring garments created -- and modeled -- by local design students. nuBest salon and spa provided the hair and makeup looks for the models. in keeping with the fantastical and whimsical theme (and the gatsby-esque backdrop provided by the magnificent castle), the hair and makeup was dramatic, with 1920s-inspired finger waves and smoky grey eyeshadow, complete with a deep aubergine lip.
