Kim Kardashian and Pat McGrath Team Up
Kim Kardashian is many things: a mom, businesswoman, and a designer in her own right. Now, thanks to everyone’s favorite makeup artist Pat McGrath, she can add the title of “muse” to her ever-growing resume.
To coincide with the launch of her latest seven-piece Dark Star 006 eye kit the makeup artist (who has been responsible for dozens of runways) shared a video on Instagram teasing “Someone Is Coming.” Considering McGrath is casually BFFs with most pop culture figureheads (including Rihanna and the Hadids), the roster of possibilities was long. The industry has been left guessing for the better part of a week about who it could be, and finally on Monday afternoon, we were brought out of the dark: It’s Kim Kardashian. (To be fair, in February, Kardashian also teased a similar collaboration with a peep of a Snapchat filtered McGrath.) But really, who better to serve as the face of a glitzy, smoky eye kit than the 50-step-makeup-routine queen herself?
This is hardly Kardashian’s first time as the face of a major makeup brand. She has her own Kardashian Beauty line and a Charlotte Tilbury lipstick named after her — and in the video she looks like the pro we all know she is.
McGrath is the genius behind some of the most sought-after makeup kits on the planet, and her products are constantly shown off by her famous friends. Remember Rihanna’s lips for W’s September cover? That was McGrath’s doing. Blue-hued Dark Star 006 is the third sparkly product kit out of the house of McGrath (after red-tinged Lush 004 and gold-gilded Metalmorphosis 005), and the first to have a famous face attached to it.
The kit comes out This Spring, and we can’t wait to see what sort of track pants + high heels look Kim Kardashian decides to pair her blue, glittery, McGrath-inspired smoky eye with on launch day.
