Dubbed the most influential makeup artist in the business by Vogue, Pat McGrath inspires us on and off the runway, and one glimpse at her Instagram is proof that her range of work envoke inspiration, emotion, and project beauty unlike any other.  The images tell a story, like pieces of art hanging in a museum. With looks ranging from simple glowing beauty seen at the SS17 Givenchy show to more avant-garde, with the handcrafted black-lacquered face masks seen at Alenander McQueen SS15 show. McGrath, whose looks seem to set the tone for each season, has worked with some of the biggest names in fashion from Dior, Prada, to Alexender McQueen and John Galliano, and featured in multiple magazines like Vogue, i-D, Garage and W. Therefore, It was hard to narrow down to just a few from all the stunning looks, but we have put together some of onmakeupmagazine.com favorites from @patmcgrathreal
