Catwalk make-up artist Pat McGrath on the new 3D lips…

21 November 2008


Newsflash! Party-season lips are about to go bigger! We've been racking our brains as to how exactly to bring our beauty look bang up to date in time for Christmas - and who better to ask than catwalk make-up artist Pat McGrath? Her top-secret tip? The new 3D lips seen at Nina Ricci and John Galliano. ‘Use two shades of lipstick to create more two-dimensional-looking lips that appear instantly super-sized! Apply a brighter colour - like pink, coral, or true red - to the center of lips, using your fingers. Then use a slightly deeper shade of lipstick up to the outer edges of the lips. Blend the area where the two shades meet so they fade into each other. Blot and seal with gloss.'  Pat, we salute you - who needs lip fillers when you've got genius tricks like that?
