Makeup how to: Stella McCartney SS16, by Pat McGrath for Max Factor

Backstage at the Stella McCartney SS16 Show, Max Factor Global Creative Design Director, Pat McGrath, created a look that was designed to “embrace fresh, modern glamour for powerful and individual women”, and perfectly encapsulated the spring/summer mood that we all aim for.
Think healthy, luminous skin, champagne highlights and eye contouring – all designed to bring out the best in each individual’s features.
"We wanted to reflect and compliment the explosion of colour, energy and movement within the
collection by celebrating a true summer beauty look that is fresh and natural,” said designer McCartney, “while also embracing the individuality of women."
To get the look at home:
1. Backstage, Pat first created a fresh, luminous base, allowing some translucency to softly enhance models’ skin. To achieve this, Pat applied a few drops of Max Factor Miracle Match
Foundation (dropping soon), a next-gen shade-matching foundation that blurs and nourishes the skin. “Use fingertips to dab on to the centre of the face, blending it out towards the ears and hairline over moisturised skin”.
2. Pat then applied a tiny amount of Max Factor Mastertouch Concealer to any areas that needed a little extra coverage, such as under eyes, blemishes and redness.
3. Using a powder brush, Pat then swept a sheer amount of Max Factor Crème Puff Pressed Powder, layering over the foundation to cover the t-zone, preventing too much shine in any unflattering areas.
4. To finish, Pat layered further, adding softness and light to the cheeks: applying Max Factor
Creamy Blush in Soft Pink followed by delicate dabs of Max Factor Masterpiece Colour Precision Eyeshadow in Pearl Beige to the very top of the cheekbones.
5. Using a brush, Pat applied the light champagne colour from the Max Factor Smokey Eye Drama
Kit in Sumptuous Golds to the eyelids, “working the colour across the lids to create shape and
subtle eye-contouring”.
6. Top lashes were then wrapped in a single coat of Max Factor False Lash Effect Velvet Volume Mascara in brown; enhancing the lashes with “beautifully soft to touch yet wonderful, big lashes.” 7. For brows, fill in only any gaps where any hairs are missing with little feathery strokes using Max Factor Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel.
8. For polished, sheer pink spring/summer lips, Pat used Max Factor Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipstick in Evermore Sublime, subtly swiping a sheer coat of the colour – that will last.
