The Spring/Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear show in Milan presented a collection from Dolce & Gabbana that evokes the most profound Sicilian tradition and exquisite handcraftsmanship. Backstage, the designers’ inspiration, with a rich color palette and mix of elements recalling a hot Sicilian summer as its focal point, was brought to life by Pat McGrath using Dolce & Gabbana Makeup. The brand creative advisor translated the designers’ fashion creativity and vision into a makeup look presenting a combination of bright corals alongside subtle warm hues.
To achieve a flawless look, Pat applied new Luminous Liquid Foundation using The Foundation Brush. She carefully blended the foundation adding extra coverage on the nose and forehead. The Concealer was then used to achieve a faultless complexion illuminated with light. Finally Pat used The Blush in Sole, Mocha and Apricot, mixing a combination of warm shades sweeping lightly across models’ cheekbones creating a glowing and radiant finish.
On the eyes, The Eyeshadow Quad in Desert was applied, layering pale gold shadow to create a luxuriously subtle, iridescent base. The Glam Liner in Black Intense added an element of drama, applied along the lash line it created a strikingly feline cat-eye. The Eyeliner in Chocolate and The Khol Pencil in True Black were then worked along the lash line below the eyes for further definition. Finally, several layers of Intenseyes Mascara were applied, achieving volumized, perfectly coated lashes for a flirtatious look.
Turning her attention to the lips, Pat applied The Classic Cream Lipstick in Chocolate and Iconic, blending the color to create a lip stain for a provocative look. The color was applied with greater intensity at the cupid’s bow, to enhance the lips for a smooth and full finish. Pat chose The Nail Lacquer in Pink for a final subtle accent. The pastel shade and luxurious finish perfectly completed the sensual makeup look.
Pat McGrath explained: “It has been fantastic creating a makeup look for this wonderful collection; it pays tribute to the designers’ love for Sicily so perfectly through the use of stunning prints and intricately hand-crafted pieces. The clothes evoke a real sense of the traditional Mediterranean summer so I wanted to bring that to life with the makeup look. The models look radiant – the warm coral shades are complemented by the sensual red brown lip which really adds to the Designers’ inspiration.”
