Naomi Campbell is 50 and fabulous! The supermodel has landed her second major beauty brand deal with Pat McGrath’s newest limited edition collection and is now the face of Mothership VIII Divine Rose II Eye Palette and Lipstick. Campbell and McGrath have been friends for years and the supermodel has been her muse for a very long time so this deal makes her the first-ever global face of Pat McGrath Labs.
“We were so hyped and thrilled to be shooting with each other,” Campbell told ELLE.com.
“But don’t get it twisted: as much fun as Pat is, she’s extremely professional. Naomi’s beauty is without compare, but what truly makes her special—and the ultimate McGrath Muse—is her legendary loyalty, unparalleled work ethic and sublime soul,” the legendary makeup artist and beauty mogul says in the Masterclass video below. “It’s an understatement to say that I consider myself blessed to call her a friend.”
The pigmented and shimmering colors do not come cheap, sistas! But know that it is worth every penny – $125 for the palette and $80 for the Divine Rose Lip Trio.
Campbell gushed over McGrath’s work ethics and talent to Elle since she had worked with her in New York City in the 90s for a shoot for ID magazine.
“She studied our faces, she knows what she wants to do, and how she wants to do it. She explains it in a way that you start to understand the character of it, about what you are going to do and who you are going to be,” Campbell said of their first meeting.
“She’ll explain that when the light will change from day to night, the makeup will change from day to night and she’ll bring you back in and change things and you feel like you are a part of it.
“It makes you feel like you are not just a model, but you get to learn something from it. It all helps make the day and the shoot go so much better. And most importantly, we laugh nonstop. From the first day I met her to today, we laugh all the time,” she added.
Campbell’s stunning glittery lipstick from MTV Awards was epic. The model said she feels most “divine” when McGrath makes her up.
“Every time Pat McGrath puts her wand on me. I mean wearing the red sparkly lip to the MTV Awards I really felt like I was Dorothy wearing her red shoes going down the yellow brick road. I’ve never seen lipstick get so much attention in my life. It was incredible.”
