Get the fashion glow!

08 October 2008

At Grazia, we never miss the chance to steal a hot new tip from one of our favourite beauty insiders. So imagine our excitement yesterday when we met up with make-up artist to the fash pack, Pat McGrath, to get the heads-up on her new season beauty tricks. And believe us, this is a lady who knows her stuff. In fact, the list of top shows she's worked on is as long as Britney's hair extensions... Dior, Balenciaga, Prada, Lanvin, Stella McCartney and Dolce & Gabbana are just for starters. So, you heard it here first ladies - Pat says matte skin is officially over. Her top tip? ‘Shimmer, shimmer and more shimmer. We used highlighter on the cupid's bow, tops of cheeks and the inner corner of the eyes at nearly every show this season.' And there's more good news: it seems that next season is all about credit-luxe beauty tricks. ‘We mixed concealer with lip balm at Calvin Klein, Prada and Oscar de la Renta,' says Pat. She's a fan of Burt's Bees lip balm, which costs all of £3.49, because it's just right on the shine-o-meter. Cheap and chic - we're in beauty heaven!
