Pat McGrath’s Backstage Staple: A Drugstore Find?
As you’ve probably gleaned from our extensive backstage coverage of the Spring shows, it was a big season for beauty. The runway’s bright washes of eye shadow, poppy pouts, and platinum dye jobs gave us plenty to talk about—and attempt at home (hot fuchsia lipstick à la Jil Sander? Yes, we will). But the silent hero of the season just may have been the small, unassuming bottle of foundation that Pat McGrath toted with her from New York to Milan and then Paris, leaving a gaggle of girls with flawless faces in her wake. We saw it at Anna Sui, Gucci, Versace, and Lanvin, and now, at long last, CoverGirl’s new NatureLuxe Foundation is finally in stores. Available in 14 shades, the hydrating formula blends into skin like a tinted moisturizer while imparting full coverage with a dewy finish. It’s real selling point, though, is the inclusion of a slew of botanical ingredients like cucumber water, jojoba, and rose hip extracts, which allows the lightweight makeup to glide on clean and smooth, with a fresh scent to boot. Until you get your hands on a bottle, please enjoy evidence of its efficacy on Lindsey Wixson, above. (We know. It’s next level.)
