Want to spend Fashion Week working with Pat McGrath?

The legendary makeup artist has put an Instagram call-out for aspiring wannabes to join her team

If you're an aspiring makeup artist and want to gain experience in the field learning from someone widely considered by basically everyone to be the best in their field, then look no further than Pat McGrath's call-out for new talent.

The celebrated makeup artist and creative design director of Proctor & Gamble Beauty is launching an Instagram competition for a talented individual to join her team during Fashion Week. To enter, you have to follow her Instagram account, recreate one of her makeup looks from a runway show and post it with the hashtag #BackstageWithPatMcGrath. 

McGrath is considered by many to be the most influential and in-demand makeup artists in the business and is responsible for some of the most showstopping runway beauty looks of the past few two decades, including the bejewelled eyes from Raf Simons' SS13 Dior debut and the bleached orange eyebrows of Prada AW12.

Last year, she was awarded an MBE by the queen last year for services to the fashion and beauty industry.

Most recently, McGrath worked on these BDSM-inspired masks for Alexander McQueen SS15, which we dubbed as one of the most extreme womenswear transformations of the season.

If you think you've got what it takes to team up with the goddess of makeup, then get busy and you could find yourself whisked away to a fashion week. Good luck.
