Spring 2016 Is Shaping Up To Be A Show Stopper Consisting Of Metallic Gold Statement Lips.
Prada always seems to be one step ahead in the fashion stakes and you can always count on them to be equally inspiring when it comes to makeup.
Pat McGrath, one of the Worlds leading Makeup artists, opted to bypass on the painted eye or brow in favor of the gilded lip.
“It’s super reflective, very gold, as metallic as it gets,” said McGrath. “The clothes are so strong, we thought, Why not do a mouth that’s punchy and really rich?” The rest of the face was stripped bare with a bit of foundation and framed with a halo of slick baby hairs (fixed in place by Guido Palau using Redken Hardwear Gel and Triple Take hairspray).
It all added up to something slightly futuristic but also beautifully surreal—a delicate Klimt-esque touch brought to life with an off-kilter Prada-ified twist.
Which leaves just one question for McGrath, who dodged the question with a wink before dashing off for a final touch-up: What exactly is in that mysterious pot—and where can we get our hands on it? Stay tuned.
