Beauty editors were treated to an exclusive Facebook Live on Wednesday morning starring makeup genius Pat McGrath, who had just wrapped the Miu Miu show in Paris. The CoverGirl global creative design director has long been a backstage queen, creating some of the most influential and Insta’ed looks during fashion month. Despite the fact that she’s the force behind the yellow brows at Margiela and the glitter lip kits from her namesake cosmetics line, you’ll actually be able to wear the looks she created on Facebook without stopping traffic. Here, five lessons from the master.
1. Tissue off your foundation
“If you put foundation on then you throw powder on, it always globs,” explains McGrath. Instead, she recommends using a tissue to pat away the excess before setting (we love doing this with a clean Beauty Blender). “Take it down to a really fine consistency.” The pro used this trick at Boss to ace no-makeup makeup.
