#MakeupMonday: A True Self-Made Billionaire

Still on July vacation but popped back to share this:

Yes.  She is.  And her makeup ROCKS.   It is deeply pigmented, gorgeous on black skin, always cutting edge, and stays on! I have her LUST: MatteTrance Lipstick in Omi (her cult color — super wearable, long-lasting, perfect for conferences and professional wear).  The packaging is also to-die-for.  But in general, go for PM when you want BIG effects. One product, LiquiLUST, lets you combine color and gloss and pure opalesque pigment powder to create your own innovative looks! Watch this video to have your mind blown:

Obviously what you need for your next conference, amirite.

Find her stuff at Pat McGrath Labs.  And support a true self-made artist and businesswoman.
