Pat McGrath

Pat McGrath,the genius,the makeup wizard,the magician,the maverick;these are the adjectives that epitomise her iconic work in the industry.

She is British and she is the most sought after makeup artist in the world.Being a fashion and editorial makeup artist her avante garde looks can be seen on the ramps of Christian Dior by John Galliano,Dolce&Gabbana,Valentino,Gucci,Lanvin,Anna Sui,Oscar de La Renta,Hussein Chalayan,Calvin Klein,Donna Karan etc....the list is endless.
She is also known for her her line for the famous Giorgio Armani cosmetics and she is the GLOBAL CREATIVE DIRECTOR for Procter & Gamble,designing some inspirational makeup for their in-house brands like Max Factor, CoverGirl, SK II ang Iman cosmetics.
Her creative looks can be browsed on pages of Vogue,Marie Claire,i-d magazine,Elle etc working with world famous photographers
She has lent her expertise and is an advisor for celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Sarah Jessica Parker whom I suppose swear by her for their flawless looks.She is a winner of numerous awards and accomplishments as a makeup artist.
One of the things that makes her a celebrity {as said by Andre Leon Talley of Vogue} is the number of bags she carries with her (estimated to be more than the ones carried by Elizabeth Taylor) that are filled with makeup.She carries more than 35 Duffel bags weighing more than 75 pounds each with names like Day Makeup,Lips,Eyes,Face and has books that inspire her from all over the world.
Her simplicity lies in her no makeup look.She hardly applies anything on herself,though the photo that I've posted is from an award function where she was awarded the Best beauty director.
Pat McGrath is a trend setter and a talisman for photographers and designers.She is truly an inspiration.
