Dame Pat McGrath has revealed the concoction of drugstore and professional beauty products that went into her viral porcelain doll looks for Maison Martin Margiela’s Spring/Summer 2024 haute couture show — and that her own version of the glossy finish is “coming soon.”

During an Instagram Live masterclass (which had at one point over 16,000 viewers) today, the Pat McGrath Labs founder and her glam squad team showcased how they created her perfectly imperfect glazed looks for creative director John Galliano. During the two-hour tutorial, the legendary beauty pro revealed that they finished the looks — defined by razor-thin brows, dramatically pigmented eyeshadow, watercolor-esque lips and ultra-glossy skin — by airbrushing a custom mix of distilled water, professional makeup brand Skin Illustrator’s clear gloss and a handful of drugstore skin-care products available on Amazon: the Proot Calendula Peel-Off Face Mask, Freeman Renewing Peel-Off Cucumber Gel Mask and Daggett & Ramsdell Australian Tea Tree Oil & Vitamin E Peel Off Facial Mask.

McGrath’s soon-to-drop glass skin product was one of two launches that she teased during the live tutorial. The Hollywood makeup artist also revealed that a new soft pink hue of her best-selling blush is also coming.

“The glass skin we’ve been practicing for three years, and we finally got it right for the show,” explained McGrath of the development process behind the ethereal look. It took “weeks and weeks” and days of training to nail down the final looks for the Margiela show, where Gwendoline Christie walked down the runway and Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Noah Cyrus were among the stars in the front row.

McGrath began the looks with her beauty label’s Skin Fetish: Sublime Perfection line, including the primer, foundation and concealer. “It really was about this beautiful serum-like finish of all our foundations and products to make the skin look glassier … We had to take it to that perfect consistency,” she said.

McGrath added, “All of the girls loved being able to pull off their beauty in one go.”

A slew of stars and celebrity makeup artists joined the IG Live session, including fellow celebrity makeup artists Sara Tanno and Gregory Arlt, hairstylist Guido Palau, actresses Jodie Turner-Smith and Kristie, to name a few.

“We are screaming here in the Tron trailer!” commented Turner-Smith.
