Get the Look Pat McGrath Labs x Maison Margiela Haute Couture SS24

Pat McGrath, the undisputed queen of makeup artistry, once again proved her unparalleled genius with her groundbreaking work for the Maison Margiela Haute Couture Spring 2024 show. While her talent has always been undeniable, McGrath surpassed even her brilliance by creating a makeup look that perfectly complemented Creative Director John Galliano’s mesmerizing Maison Margiela Artisanal Collection 2024.

Galliano’s collection explored the ritual of dressing and the profound connection between clothes and emotion. The runway presentation was a moody, moonlit journey along the Seine in Paris, featuring a cast of exquisite muses presented in a stunning tableau. The makeup crafted by Pat McGrath played a crucial role in enhancing the ethereal atmosphere of the show.

The makeup concept centered around a modern interpretation of porcelain glass skin. Pat McGrath expertly bleached the models’ brows, replacing them with pencil-thin arches drawn using neutral-toned shadows. The eyes became the canvas for McGrath’s artistic expression, showcasing variations of a painterly look in jewel tones, pastels, or moody charcoals. A doll-like flush was achieved by applying a cream blush to the center of the cheeks.

The lips took on a subversive allure with shades of blooded red and black, topped with a clear gloss for a surreal pout. The final touch was a hyper-shiny glaze applied to the skin, creating a smooth, reflective quality reminiscent of glass. This finishing touch completed the models’ unbelievable metamorphosis, turning them into otherworldly beings that perfectly embodied the mood and theme of Galliano’s collection.
