“It has been fantastic creating a make-up look for this wonderful collection; it pays tribute to The Designers love for Silicily so perfectly through the use of stunning prints and intricately hand-crafted pieces. The clothes evoke a real sense of the traditional Mediterranean summer so I wanted to bring that to life with the make-up look. The models look radiant – the warm coral shades are complemented by the sensual red brown lip which really adds to the Designers’ inspiration.” explained Pat McGrath, the brand’s Creative Advisor.

To achieve a flawless look, Pat applied new Luminous Liquid Foundation using the Foundation Brush. She carefully blended the foundation adding extra coverage on the nose and forehead. The Concealer was then used to achieve a faultless complexion illuminated with light. Finally Pat used Luminous Cheek Color in Sole, Mocha and Apricot, mixing a combination of warm shades sweeping lightly across models’ cheekbones creating a glowing and radiant finish.

On the eyes, Smooth Eye Color Quad in Desert was applied, layering pale gold shadow to create a luxuriously subtle, iridescent base. The Glam Liner in Black Intense added an element of drama, applied along the lash line it created a strikingly feline cats-eye. Crayon Intense in Chocolate and Intense Eye Khol Crayonl in True Black were then worked along the lash line below the eyes for further definition. Finally, several layers of Intenseyes Mascara were applied, achieving volumized, perfectly coated lashes for a flirtatious look.

Turning her attention to the lips, Pat applied Classic Cream Lipstick in Chocolate and Iconic, blending the color to create a lip stain for a provocative look. The color was applied with greater intensity at the cupid’s bow, to enhance the lips for a smooth and full finish.

Pat chose Intense Nail Lacquer in Pink for a final subtle accent. The pastel shade and luxurious finish perfectly completed the sensual makeup look.
