SINGAPORE — British makeup artist Pat McGrath is extraordinary and a visionary; that even Vogue’s Anna Wintour named her “the most influential makeup artist in the world.” Her rose to makeup artistry began when she worked for major brands and top photographers like Steven Meisel and Christian Dior, followed by beauty brands like Covergirl and Max Factor.
In the year 2017, having only released a six-piece limited edition beauty range, she went on to develop a full product range that consists of lipsticks, eyeshadow palettes, lip and eye pencil.
Today, her brand is valued at US$1billion, when she received a US$60 million minority investment from Eurazeo Brands to expand. I think this calls for a Fortune Magazine cover, even though influencer Kylie Jenner, whose cosmetics line Kylie Jenner Cosmetics is valued at US$800 million (you do the Maths!).
Pat McGrath Labs can be found in Sephora Singapore, and one of her best-selling items, the Skin Fetish Highlighter + Balm Duo is retailed at S$74.
What’s my skin like
Tan, as I’ve just returned from a summer vacation in Corsica. Possibly dry too, as I’ve constantly forgot to moisturise.
How to use
The product comes with both the highlighter and balm on each end. The packaging looks pretty luxe, and easy to use. Swipe the highlighter directly on the areas you’d like to capture a sheer glow: forehead, cheekbones, nose bridge and blend with your fingertips. Add on the moisturising balm for a sheer, luminous glow.
I’ve even used the balm on my dry lips, fingers and elbow, when I’m constantly banging out stories on my keyboard – the moisturising oils smells great and it doesn’t feel sticky at all (your partner will second this after a kissing fest!)
This highlighter + balm duo is perfect for those who are looking for a highlighter that will give you a dewy, sheer glow. Even looks good on photographs too!
