Pat McGrath Takes To Instagram In Search of Fashion Week Team Members


Makeup artist Pat McGrath has launched a search on Instagram to find new fashion week team members to work with her backstage during autumn/winter 2015 shows.

“I just thought that there are so many talented people out there, and everyone deserves a chance. I have a very, very big team and I’m always looking for great talent in make-up artistry so I thought I’d open the search. I’ve been overwhelmed with the quality of the work I’ve been seeing,” McGrath told Vogue. McGrath’s makeup magic has  been seen on runway shows from Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci to Valentino and Versace, so getting the chance to work with her would truly be a once in a lifetime opportunity you will never forget.


Makeup artist hopefuls have been asked by McGrath to recreate any of her catwalk beauty looks and to then post the images to Instagram, tagging them with #backstagewithpatmcgrath.

“I’m looking for anything from one to eight people to join the team. So far there have been thousands of entrants and there are about 30 I just love. I’m going to start shortlisting soon – the project is due to end on December 1 but may go on longer – and then we’ll fly the key talents to New York so we can meet them and see how it goes,” she said.

If you think you have what it takes to work alongside Pat, then head to Instagram now, follow @PatMcGrathReal and tag your beauty creation #backstagewithpatmcgrath.

Good luck!
