Top makeup artist Pat McGrath has joined forces with the Metropolitan Museum of Art to launch the cultural institution’s first makeup collection.
The Met Gala 2018 Heavenly Bodies Exhibit Limited Edition Makeup Collection will be sold exclusively at the museum’s gift shop. The collection features the Mothership IV: Decadence Eyeshadow palette and a new Lust: Gloss shade in “Angelic”.
“I feel incredibly close to this year’s show [‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’] — many of the extraordinary pieces featured are from shows and campaigns I worked on so to me, it represents some of the most beloved, groundbreaking moments throughout my career as a makeup artist,” said McGrath in an interview with WWD. “For the Metropolitan Museum of Art to include makeup and makeup artistry alongside some of the greatest masterworks of Western art is truly exceptional.”
