Pat McGrath – Pat McGrath Labs
The story: Creating iconic looks for the likes of John Galliano, Lanvin, Valentino, and Stella McCartney, alongside a host of top celebrities during a career that spans over 25 years, British-born Pat is at the top of the game when it comes to make-up artistry. So the only surprise when McGrath launched Pat McGrath Labs in 2016 was that it took her so long. She started with Gold 001, a pure gold pigment that could be used creatively on lips, eyes and skin. With only 1,000 units available when it launched, it sold out in a matter of minutes. Several other products have followed, including a dual-ended eye marker and several different full colour kits. Where to buy: Only through her US-based website (patmcgrath.com) – and when a product launches, you have to be quick, so it’s worth joining the mailing list.
