I have gone into the future with Pat McGrath Labs Mothership IX Huetopian Dream eye palette. This was a super fun campaign I got to shoot for the brand that let me get extra creative. I created this out-of-this-world makeup look by applying two shades from the palette with my fingers: the Xtreme Plum Noir (matte) as a smokey cat eye base, and Astral Amethyst Moon (duo chrome sparkles). There is so much versatility in this palette, but I wanted something fun and bold. To amplify my color, I slid on the Pat McGrath Labs IntensifEyes Artistry Wand. It completely transformed the metallic finish. It’s like mixing a liquid with an easy to use pen. It’s time to have a lot more fun with color pops.
I’ve traveled to quite a few beaches this summer, laid out in the sun, and haven’t managed to touch my hair in months. It was definitely time for a hair refresh. I just got a much sexier cut by Julien Farel. Layers and a lot more volume. Yes, he gives the best cuts in NYC. And an amazing color by my girl Gynna. A little lighter, brighter, and a whole lot bouncier. I’ve never truly appreciated a good head of hair until now and will be taking much better care of these locks from this day forward.
I shot a super candid Merit five minute makeup look for the brand and it’s honestly, my favorite makeup look yet. Mostly because it’s totally minimal, and gives an instant glow. Here is what I used for these flushed cheeks and bitten lips. As Merit says, less is more, and I totally agree.
