Where An Orange Eyebrow Meets Yellow Eye Shadow - Maison Margiela Autumn/Winter 2017-2018

 Maison Margiela Autumn/Winter 2017-2018 Make-up Pat McGrath 

The season’s beauty looks for Autumn/Winter 2017-18 are many and include minimalist make-up with a bare, neutral look as seen at Alexander McQueen; to highlight a glowing complexion, make-up artists reflect light and use liquid foundation for an almost wet finish at Burberry; the statement lip is here at Gucci; at Yves Saint Laurent and Armani, the smoky eye is back. Elsewhere, oversized lashes and a graphic use of eyeliner exaggerate a new eye.

For Martin Margiela Autumn/Winter 2017-2018 RTW (Ready-To-Wear), renowned backstage make-up artist Pat McGrath takes birds of paradise as her inspiration. Her collaborator, Eugene Souleiman, creates hair which is parted, slicked down and then brushed out at the ends. Taking a nude lip and a natural complexion, Pat McGrath creates a graphic cat’s eye in super colours which show pigments in make-up and beauty reaching new creative heights, where an orange eyebrow meets yellow eye shadow - DC
