Pat McGrath is one of the most legendary and adored make-up artists working in the fashion industry today. Born in Northampton, she developed a fascination with beauty as a young girl watching her mum get ready in the morning and spending evenings watching old movies. Despite having no formal fashion training, Pat began work in the music business, before a chance meeting with i-Ds Fashion Director Edward Enninful in the early 90s introduced her to the world of fashion. Her creative, colourful and flamboyant work has since appeared on the catwalks of every designer of note (Pat designed the make-up for an astonishing 35 womens ready-to-wear shows for autumn/winter 08 alone!) Today as well as balancing catwalk duties, advertising shoots and editorial, Pat is the Global Creative Design Director for Procter & Gamble Beauty, focusing on P&G’s, CoverGirl, Max Factor, SK2 and Dolce & Gabbana brands.
