Nowhere was this more evident than at the Prada Spring/ Summer 2013 show. CoverGirl makeup artist Pat McGrath was the mastermind behind the look. To get the bold red pout, line your lips with CoverGirl LipPerfection LipLiner in Passion. Then apply CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipcolor in Hot. Whether the fluoro-pink lips at Missoni or the tangerine sheen at Aquilano.Rimondi and Moschino, a ripe, velvety lip is in for at least another season. No one showcased this best than the house of Prada, whose minimalist Japanese silhouettes played canvas to an overdrawn powerhouse red.

McGrath’s career breakthrough came while working with  Edward Enninful (then fashion editor of i-D magazine) in the early 1990s, when her innovative use of color “brilliantly solved the world’s ennui with grunge” and helped launch i-D to a position of international importance. In the mid-1990s, she worked both with minimalist Jil Sander and with surrealist John Galliano, where she became known for her “latex petals stuck to faces, vinyl lips, bodies drenched in powder paint, [and] stylized Kabuki physiognomies.”

Since then, McGrath has worked with photographers including Steven Meisel (who now rarely shoots without her),Paolo Roversi, Helmut Newton, and Peter Lindbergh. In addition to appearing in i-D, photos of her work have been published in fashion magazines including American, English, and French Vogue, W, and Harper’s Bazaar. She attends four fashion show seasons (counting couture) each year and has worked with designers including Prada, Miu Miu, Comme des Garçons, and Dolce and Gabbana. Additionally, she designed Armani’s cosmetics line in 1999 and in 2004 was named global creative-design director for Procter and Gamble, where she is in charge of Max Factor and Cover Girl cosmetics, among other brands. During McGrath’s constant travels to work locations, she takes between thirty and fifty bags of materials, tools, and reference materials.
