My Trip to Paris Meeting Pat McGrath!Wed, 5 Sep 2012
HUDA BEAUTY | MAKEUP
By Huda Heidi Kattan
Hey my loves! Soooo not too long ago I went to Paris to meet with Pat McGrath after the AW Paris Fashion Week show! It was amazing seeing her! Her skin looked amazing and she had so many amazing things to show us about Fall and Winter makeup trends! It was only about 10 editors from all over the world, so we really got to interact with her and ask her ANYTHING we wanted! If you guys aren’t familiar with who she is, she is the number one makeup artist in the world and is considered the absolute most influential person with beauty! When you see orange lips on a Prada ad or a smokey eye in a Versace, Valentino, Viktor & Rolf, or Louis Vuitton show, that is created all by Pat and her team! She is the Max Factor Global Creative Director and Dolce Gabbaana;s Brand Creative Director and her vision is part of the reason why both brands have done so incredibly well!
Soooo sitting down with her was like a DREAM! I had met her before in London at a beauty conference, but this was so intimate and incredible! I got to ask her ANYTHING! She let me in on her favorite products, best way to create red lips, hottest trends, etc and I will be sharing ALL of that with you:))
As soon as I went in I noticed how flawless her skin looked! It had an unbelievable glow and was literally perfection! But it didn’t look like she was wearing anything! My first question was “How the heck does your skin look so perfect?” She told me her favorite products were all that she was wearing and what she used most on her models! This is what she had to say!
My key products for the season are: 24 from False Lash Effect; All Day Flawless 3-in-1 Foundation*; Colour Effect Flipsticks – as I love that they allow us to play with colour and highlighting; Liquid Effect Pencil in Black Fire – which is an amazing eyeliner as it really stays put; Mini Nails in Candy Blue and Smoky Eye Effect in Blue Tempest.
I’m a big fan of the False Lash Effect family, regularly using the mascaras for the runways, so I’m very excited about 24 from False Lash Effect as it lasts for up to 24 hours. Super lash glamour transforms your look – enhancing eyes to look bigger and more defined – so it’s not surprising all girls want the look to last.
*Max Factor Facefinity All Day Flawless 3-in-1 Foundation will be available in the region beginning February 2013
