Let’s recreate the Pat McGrath Versace makeup look for spring!
(Contains Affiliate Links)
Did you guys SEE the Pat McGrath Versace makeup look at the recent FW21 digital fashion show? Because it is gorgeous and spot on perfect for the spring season!
As soon as the show wrapped up, I knew I was immediately going to have to dig through my own collection of Pat McGrath makeup to recreate such a colorful look for myself at home. And yes, *technically* this pink eye appeared on a fall runway — but it’s absolutely perfect for the warm and sunnier days we have ahead. I think so, anyway!
Recreating the Pat McGrath Versace Makeup Look
Being that my love of Pat’s makeup has achieved STAN status at this point, I had quite a few items at my disposal to quickly recreate the latest Pat McGrath Versace makeup look at home. Everything I’ve used is selected for you below, but if you don’t have any of these items — no worries! Go ahead and pick things you have on hand in your own collection.
The key is to use a bold, electric pink eyeshadow! The shade from Pat McGrath’s Divine Rose II palette is what I’m using and what I’d most recommend (as the quality is so gosh darn good), but as long as you have something similar on hand — you’ll be good to go!! The idea is to have fun splashing a vibrant wash of color across your eyes and create a warm, glowy complexion.
Enjoy a step-by-step guide on everything I did to recreate this makeup look for my own day below. And if you try this out, let me know what you think!!
THE PAT MCGRATH VERSACE MAKEUP LOOK
STEP 1: START BUILDING YOUR EYESHADOW
Electric eyes are undeniably the focal point of this Pat McGrath Versace makeup look! Using the Divine Rose II eyeshadow palette, load a damp shading brush with the hot pink shadow and press pigment across your eyelid and up towards the brow bone. Build and layer color up, repeating and stretching eyeshadow into a wing on the outer corner of your eyes.
Optional: If you’d like a super sharp wing, use a piece of tape on the outer corners of your eye while applying shadow. Remove for a sharp line.
STEP 2: FOUNDATION
After getting well on your way with the eyeshadow, apply the Pat McGrath Sublime Perfection foundation with a buffing brush or beauty sponge (it’s up to you). Be careful around the eyes. Foundation can be used to clean up any shadow that may be popping up where you don’t want it, but you also want to be sure you don’t cover up work you’d like to keep.
STEP 3: CONCEALER
Following foundation is concealer, of course! If you’ve not yet tried Pat McGrath’s, I highly recommend! It has an ultra creamy, full-coverage consistency that sets into a nice satin finish. Not only is her concealer great for evening out skintone where desired, it’s also a great way to clean up any work with your eyeshadow.
Apply concealer to your usual areas and then to clean up the outer corner of our eyeshadow, as needed.
STEP 4: SETTING POWDER
Pat McGrath currently has two powders available, both loose and a pressed blurring powder. The blurring is actually designed to be used under the eyes but I like the effect it has all over the skin. Set foundation and concealer with your powder of choice!
STEP 5: BACK TO THE EYESHADOW
Along the lower lashes, using the edge of a flat shader or a pencil brush to blend pink shadow along the lower lash line.
STEP 6: LINER TIME
With the pink shadow as the star of the show, this Pat McGrath Versace makeup look actually does not have a ton of eyeliner. Nonetheless, it’s always great to define the eyes with a little or liquid or pencil liner along the upper lash line in my book.
After that, smudge black pencil liner in your water line.
STEP 7: MASCARA
To finish off the eyes, apply mascara to both your top and bottom lashes! I reached for the beloved Dark Star mascara which is jet black, dramatic and lasts all day long! 10/10 recommended.
STEP 8: BRONZER
At the moment, Pat Mcgrath actually does not have a bronzer — if you can believe it. So, grab a cream or powder bronzer you enjoy from your collection to carve out your cheekbones and create some dimension (as well as warmth) to the face.
STEP 8: HIGHLIGHT
While Pat McGrath’s foundation is quite glowy on its own, we of course want to add in a bit of highlighter. The Celestial Divinity one I used is sold out but the new Divine Rose skin finish is gorgeous! Pat also has a dual-ended highlighting stick available. I haven’t picked that one up yet but I have an inkling it’s watch she used for this look specifically. (It’s on sale atm, too!!)
STEP 9: LIPSTICK
Last but not least, the lips. I thought about going with a neutral gloss for this look but decided instead for one of Pat McGrath’s matte lippies as they are mask-proof and I was heading out the door for an appointment (that would naturally require a mask). In the end, I opted for a neutral dusty rose that doesn’t take away from the eyes and was on my merry way!!
I hope you enjoyed recreating the latest Pat McGrath Versace makeup look with me!
