Top make-up artist awarded in New Year Honours

HONOURED: Pat McGrath, right, applying make-up to models

MAKE-UP ARTIST Pat McGrath has been named on the New Year Honours list 2014 and will be awarded an MBE.

McGrath may not be a household name, but the British make-up artist is responsible for many magazine cover and catwalk beauty looks around the world.

The work of the self-taught make-up veteran can be seen on Scarlett Johansson's face in the new Dolce & Gabbana fragrance adverts and numerous Vogue front covers.

She is to be awarded an MBE for her services to the fashion and beauty industry in the New Year Honours List, reported the Daily Telegraph.

Northampton-born McGrath was introduced to make-up by her Jamaican mother, and together they would hunt for colours that would work on dark skin.

She is now the creative design director of Procter & Gamble Beauty, heading up the beauty vision of top brands Dolce & Gabbana, Max Factor and Cover Girl.
