MFW - Dolce & Gabbana AW13/14 & Backstage with Pat McGrath! Xx

(Milan, Italy – February 24th 2013) 
– At the Autumn/Winter 2014 Ready to Wear show in Milan, 
Dolce and Gabbana presents a collection evoking 
profound Sicilian tradition and exquisite handcraftsmanship. 
Backstage, The Designers’ inspiration of the mosaic of Monreale 
was brought to life by the brand 
Creative Advisor Pat McGrath using Dolce andGabbana Make Up.

To complement The Designers’ creative vision 
Pat created a make up look with a combination 
of nude tones alongside contrasting dark provocative accents. 
To achieve a flawless base Pat applied a mix of 
Perfect Luminous and Perfect Matte Liquid Foundations 
usingthe Foundation Brush
She started with a small amount of both foundations 
applied to the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin 
and blended it from the central point of the face 
outward until the product flowed seamlessly to the hairline and jaw.
 The Perfect Matte Concealer was then used to add 
extra coverage and achieve an illuminated natural look. 
Finally, Pat applied Powder Foundation
focusing on the forehead to perfect 
the look and bring natural radiance.

Turning her attention to the eyes, 
Pat applied the eyeshadow quad in Desert in layers 
followed by the eyeliner in Black to create a deep and mysterious look. 
The glam liner in Black Intense was then added 
on top of the lash line to add further definition 
and achieve greater depth. 
Finally, two layers of intenseyes mascara 
were applied for long and volumised lashes,
 giving models luxurious yet playful gaze.

On the lips, Pat used the lipliner in Ruby 
followed by the combination of lipsticks 
in Ultra and Amethyst to add sophistication to the look. 
The colour was applied with greater intensity 
at the cupid’s bow for better definition and striking finish.

To complement the look Pat chose 
the nail lacquer in Nude for a final touch of luxury.

Take a look at the show:
Starting with images from the mosaics of Monreale,
