Makeup: Pat McGrath for Dolce & Gabbana

To start, Dolce & Gabbana Essential UV Cream was first applied to hydrate the skin, followed by the Sheer Radiance Primer to build the perfect canvas for make up application. A flawless complexion was achieved using the Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation blended outward, from the center of the face out towards the ears. The Perfect Luminous Concealer was applied to the shadowed areas of the face and dabbed under the eyes, hiding blemishes and creating an impeccable base with an even skin tone. The cheeks displayed a warm, romantic flush by being delicately contoured with the new Blush in Bacio 50, which was swept onto the apples of the cheeks and up towards the ears. The face was highlighted using The Illuminator in Eva 3 along the cheekbones and on the bridge of the nose, while the skin was set with a light dusting of The Pressed Powder across the nose and forehead.

The romantic, soft feline eye look was achieved with a base of Perfect Mono Eyeshadow in Nude 30 blended across the eyelids. The two complementary shades of brown from The Eyeshadow Quad in Smoky 105 were mixed together and applied with a blending blush along the crease of the eyelids to create depth. For added definition, The Illuminator in Luna 4 was applied to the inner corner of the eyes and below the eyebrows. The upper lash lines were amplified by applying The Eyeliner in Chocolate 10 in an upward flick, and a line of the Glam Liner in Earthy Brown 2 was drawn along the upper lash line, to add an intense yet feminine feline finish. On the curled top lashes, layers of the Volumized Mascara in Black 1 were applied, paying special attention to the outer corners for definition and a lengthening finish.

The brows were sculpted with The Brow Liner in Soft Brown 1 and Mocha 3, using the wide part of the pencil nib with light, feathery strokes to fill the color outwards to the end of the brow, achieving a natural youthfulness to the face.

For beautiful, rosy plump lips, from the new collection of Dolce Matte Lipstick, a mixture of shades were combined to create perfectly tailored spring looks using Dolce Nudo 124, Miss Dolce 134, Dolce Dolcezza 212, Dolce Rosa 222, Dolce Sogno 223, Dolce Mamma 229, Dolce Excelsa 512 and Dolce Bacio 641. To give lips definition and to keep the lipstick in place, the lips were lined with The Lipliner in Mamma 17, Rosa 16, Dolcezza 15, Bacio 18 and Soft 6. Nails painted with The Nail Lacquer in Bella 210 evoke elegance and finish this soft and feminine Spring/Summer 2016 look.

September 23rd, 2014

To complement the Spanish influences as seen at Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2015, Pat McGrath created a beauty look that consisted of soft plump lips, as if they were colored by the juice of fresh cherries and wide elongated eyes.

To prep the models for makeup, McGrath used Aurealux Mask, a new fabric mask from the Dolce & Gabbana skincare line, on the models. Next, she created the perfect canvas with The Primer: Sheer Radiance Make Up Base, Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation and Perfect Luminous Concealer. Then, she lightly contoured the face with The Blush: Luminous Cheek Color in Sole and Peach on the apples of the cheeks. The look was set with a light dusting of the Pressed Powder across the nose, forehead and chin and finished with Glow Illuminating Powder in Shimmer and Eva.

The eyes were gently outlined to widen and keep the simplicity. McGrath applied the bronze shades of the Smooth Eyeshadow Quad in Desert all over the eyelid and upward towards the brow line to further enhance the eyes. The upper and bottom lash lines were defined by applying the Crayon Intense Eyeliner in Chocolate. Along with the top of the upper lash line, a defined line of Intense Liquid Eyeliner in Black Intense was softly drawn to widen and perfect the eye. On the upper lashes, layers of Secret Eyes Mascara in Black were applied for a defined lash look and a lengthening finish. The brows were naturally sculpted with the Brow Liner in Chestnut, using the nib of the pencil to create additional definition. Broad strokes from the wide part of the nib were then used to fill the color outwards to the end of the brow achieving a natural youthfulness to the face.

To create the red lips, McGrath applied Classic Cream Lipstick in shades of Ultra and Amethyst on the outer parts of the lips and added Dolce Matte Lipstick in Dolce Desire on cupids bow and at the center of the lips, achieving a rich plump affect.

Enchanted Beauty at Dolce & Gabbana A/W ’14

February 28th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

At the Dolce & Gabbana A/W ’14 show in Milan, Pat McGrath, brand Creative Advisor of Dolce & Gabbana Make Up, created a makeup look evoking a feeling of “enchanted beauty” while Redken Creative Consultant Guido swept the hair up in a soft, romantic style.

To achieve a flawless base with an even skintone, Pat applied Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation using the Foundation Brush. She started by creating an even base with one shade, blending it from the central point of the face outward until the product flowed seamlessly to the hairline and jaw. Then, Pat applied a paler tone around the eyes and on forehead, nose, cheeks and chin to achieve an illuminated finish. Finally, Pat then contoured the face by applying a light touch of Blush in Nude on the apples of the cheeks.

Turning her attention to the eyes, Pat applied the light shades of the Eyeshadow Quad in Desert all over the eyelid, followed by the new Perfect Mono – Cream Eye Color, the latest innovative mono eyeshadow from Dolce & Gabbana Make Up, set to arrive on counter at the end of June. This creamy shadow, which is easy to apply either with the tips of the fingers or with a brush, added further intensity and drama with a velvety, powdery finish. Pat used Perfect Mono in Cocoa in the crease of the eyes for further depth and mixed the shades Innocence and Gold Dust to highlight the eyelids.

To contour the eyes, Pat defined the upper and bottom lash lines by applying the Eyeliner in Black, drawing from the center to the outer corner. Along the top of the upper lash line, she drew a softly defined line of Intense Liquid Eyeliner in Black Intense to perfect the eye. Underneath, Pat outlined the bottom lashes once again using the Eyeliner in Black. The Eyeliner in Nude was then used to illuminate the inner corner of the eye.

On the upper lashes, layers of Intenseyes Mascara in Black Intense were applied, with Passioneyes Mascara in Terra applied to the bottom lashes for a volumized and curled lash look – the combination of the two mascaras made for a beautifully fresh and wide eyed finish.

The eyebrows are a key element of the look. Pat used the new Brow Liner in Soft Brown to draw and feather the brows, filling in the color using the nib of the pencil, and then brushing outwards to the end of the brow. Eyebrows are beautifully constructed, with a natural finish.

On the lips, Pat used the new Classic Cream Lipstick in Honey applied with the fingertips for a sophisticated nude effect. Then a hint of Perfect Luminous Concealer was used to even out the lips and illuminate, before a final touch of Sheer Shine Gloss in Acqua was applied to the center of the lips.

As a very final touch, Pat applied a light dust of the Pressed Powder.

To complement the look Pat chose the Nail Lacquer in Nude for a natural and elegant finish.

Hair
In order to achieve an airy quality to the hair, Guido first used Redken body full volume amplifier onto damp hair. Next, he added a spritz of Redken pillow proof blowdry two day extender before creating a loose braid and twisting it into a soft updo. “I used a very small amount of products to give the hair some friction and texture, but where it still felt soft. Once the hair was pinned back, I pulled out a few tendrils to add even more softness around the face. Dolce & Gabbana always take a soft approach to women’s beauty.” said Guido.

Runway Beauty: Gilded Eyes and Soft Lips at Dolce & Gabbana S/S’14

September 24th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

The inspiration behind Dolce & Gabbana Spring/summer 2014 was an imaginary journey to rediscover ancient Sicily. To translate that into beauty, makeup artist Pat McGrath used a combination of warm golden tones alongside rich red accents on the models.

To achieve a flawless base, Pat applied Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation using the foundation brush. She started with a small amount of the foundation, applied to the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin and blended it from the central point of the face outward, until the product flowed seamlessly to the hairline and jaw. Perfect Luminous Concealer was then used to add extra coverage and achieve an illuminated look, especially under the eyes. Finally, Pat created a veil of perfection with a dusting of the pressed powder on the nose and chin. To complete the face, Pat blended the blush in Rosebud, Apricot and Peach, adding a light smudge of the eyeshadow duo in Fortune to the cheekbones and temples for a subtly sculpted finish.

Eyes
Turning her attention to the eyes, Pat applied the lighter shades from the eyeshadow quad in Golds and Desert to create a deep, gilded look. Pat then applied the eyeliner in Chocolate and Nude to the upper and lower eye, adding a bronze flecked liquid liner on top of the lash line, for further definition. Finally, layers of Passioneyes Duo Mascara in Terra were applied for volumised and curled lashes, giving models a luxurious yet playful gaze. Pat then applied the brow liner in Soft Brown for a natural, tailored brow.

Lips
On the lips, Pat used Classic Cream Lipstick in two dynamic new shades, set to arrive at Dolce & Gabbana Make Up counters from Spring 2014. The new colours, Bellissima and Traviata, were mixed to add warm decadence to the look. The color was applied with greater intensity at the cupid’s bow for better definition and striking finish.
