Gold Lips



Introducing the Gold Statement Lip from Pat McGrath

Legendary make-up artist, Pat McGrath, adorned the lips of models with glimmering 24-karat gold powder at Prada’s S/S 2016 runway show in Milan.  Pat McGrath continued to push the boundaries of beauty as the mysterious, high-impact, rich metallic pigment was applied to the lip and juxtaposed against the stripped bare faces of the models. Her slightly futuristic but also surreal inventiveness created an electric feel among the models, fashion and beauty enthusiasts backstage.

McGrath is famous for her innovative use of color, textures and materials and the gold pigment solidifies her position as one of the most creative forces in the beauty and fashion industry.  Adding another layer of mystery, backstage at the show McGrath neither confirmed nor denied that the mysterious pigment was a creation of hers.  We’ll just have to wait and see.
