It’s hard not to resort to hyperbole when talking about Pat McGrath. To call the famed makeup artist a legend, a visionary, the most influential face-painter today—it’s all incredibly apt. For more than two decades, she’s been creating some of the most impactful beauty looks on runways (think: Prada, Dior) and in print (she’s photographer Steven Meisel’s go-to). C’mon, Queen Elizabeth even named McGrath a Member of the Order of the British Empire. So, when we heard that she’s launching her own beauty products? We freaked out more than just a little. McGrath often digs through her kit to find theatrical creams fit for her dramatic creations, so it’s no surprise that her first product, Gold 001, is a bold metallic dust, launching later this month (head to patmcgrath.com to sign up for more details). Lucky passersby got a sneak peek in Paris yesterday, but as we wait (impatiently!), we’re digging through the archives to admire her gilded catwalk-ready looks from over the years.
