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.

Runway Makeup: Gilded Eyes at Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2012

March 6th, 2012

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

To complement the opulence of Sicilian Baroque at Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2012, Pat McGrath used a combination of tonal nudes alongside with rich gold accents from the designers’ beauty line, Dolce & Gabbana The Makeup, on the models.


“It was wonderful to create this make up look for this collection; there is a real sense of divine drama to the clothes and so I wanted to bring that to life with the make up look. The models look refined and flawless, and their gilt edged lids really refer to the Designers’ lavish inspiration” says Pat.

To achieve a flawless look, Pat applied The Perfect Finish Creamy Foundation using The Foundation Brush. She carefully blended the foundation adding extra coverage on the nose and forehead. The Perfect Finish Concealer was then used to achieve a flawless, ethereal look illuminated with light. Finally, Pat used The Luminous Cheek Colour in Delight, sweeping colour lightly across models’ cheekbones for a romantic flush.

On the eyes, The Smooth Eye Colour Quad in Gold and Desert were applied in layers to create a luxurious, gilt rich tone. The Crayon Intense Eyeliner in Nude was then worked along the lash line above and below the eyes to brighten the look and add further definition. Finally, several coats of The Secret Eyes Mascara in Coffee were applied, achieving long, volumized lashes for a flirtatious look.

Turning her attention to the lips, Pat applied The Classic Cream Lipstick in Petal and Mandorla, mixing the colors together for a soft, sensual lip with a subtle sheen. The color was applied with greater intensity at the cupid’s bow for a pearlescent finish.

Pat chose The Intense Nail lacquer in Nude for a final subtle accent. The luxuriant finish of the nail color perfectly completed the sensuous makeup look.
