If there is ANYONE that needs no introduction, it is this lady… Pat McGrath! Every make up artist looks up to her, she has been called the most influential make up artist by Vogue, she is the one behind most of the big shows, campaigns & editorials. She is also the global creative director for P&G.

Enjoy!
