The face is her canvas
She's British, she's brilliant and she travels with up to fifteen 75-pound duffel bags that hold the tools of her amazing trade. The magical creations of expert makeup artist Pat McGrath have turned the fashion world on end.
Now, Pat brings her global genius and couture-seasoned eye to the New MAX Factor. As the Global Color Cosmetics Creative Design Director for Procter & Gamble, she is the beauty expert and creative force behind the New MAX Factor line. Pat is helping roll out revolutionary new products with updated palettes and high-glam power straight off the catwalks.
Pat has created avant-garde makeup looks for the couture shows of John Galliano, Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Prada, Christian Dior, Stella McCartney, Giorgio Armani and a host of others. Her one-of-a-kind cosmetics artistry has been worn by supermodels including Naomi Campbell and Gisele Bundchen.
Of Jamaican and British heritage, she was born in Northampton, England. While jet-setting around the world, she prefers to stay behind the scenes at the couture shows, but hasn't been able to avoid worldwide acclaim. Pat voraciously gathers inspiration from far-flung sources including Queen Elizabeth, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Japanese Kabuki art.
