Spring 2009 RTW - Gucci Sings the Blues

There are many reasons to love makeup artist Pat McGrath. Her friendly calm, cool, collected backstage-chaos demeanor keeps her among editors’ favorites. Her unparalleled ability to come up with new design concepts—which typically include bold experiments with color—are legend. And her creative artistry on a facial canvas is simply unmatched. Many don't realize this, but McGrath lends her expertise to CoverGirl cosmetics every season as creative director for P&G. She personally formulates new palettes for what is perhaps the best catwalk-to-sidewalk collaboration available at your local drugstore.

Just take a look at what she's created for the Spring 2009 RTW Gucci show. She's reinterpreted the smoky eye using turquoise and blue shadows for a look that’s bright and springlike keeping the sexiness of basic black (but heavy) coupled right along with it. Luckily, you won’t have to wait until March to take your own azure test run: The pigments she crafted for CoverGirl’s new Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Shadows are currently available for your trial-and-error pleasure. Yea, Pat!

  1. I could never ever wear this, and yet it's so appealing in pictures! Reminds me of Alexander McQueen for MAC.
