It’s no secret that we are huge fans of the work of make up artist Pat McGrath; her work for a variety of beauty brands is nothing short of inspiring.
Pat has been running around New York, London and now Milan to work at what I like to call Fashion Month. She was at Dolce & Gabbana on Sunday night and we got the low down on the beauty tools and products she used at their very Catholic-esque show.
A good face always starts with a flawless base and to accomplish that, Pat applied a mix of Perfect Luminous and Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation (review here) using the Foundation Brush . Start with a small amount of both foundations applied to the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin and blend it from the central point of the face outward until the product flows seamlessly to the hairline and jaw.
Use Perfect Matte Concealer to add extra coverage and achieve an illuminated natural look. Finally, Pat applied Powder Foundation focusing on the forehead to perfect the look.
For eyes, Pat applied the eye shadow quad in Desert in layers followed by the eyeliner in Black to create a deep and mysterious look. The glam liner in Black Intense was then added on top of the lash line to add further definition. Lastly, two layers of intenseyes mascara were applied to really elongate the lashes.
On the lips, Pat used the lip liner in Ruby followed by lipsticks in both Ultra and Amethyst. The colour was applied with greater intensity at the Cupid’s bow for better definition and to really emphasize the mouth.
To complement the look Pat chose the nail lacquer in Nude for a final touch of luxury.
I love this look; it’s sexy and glamorous without being too in your face, and thanks to the steps above, something that can be easily recreated at home.
