Pat McGrath brushed models’ lips to look like Dorothy’s ruby slippers at the Atelier Versace play, but let’s be brutally honest with ourselves – for mere civilians, this is a look that definitely works only on Halloween. Start with a nude lipstick or liner, add your meretricious glitter with a little brush (or even a sparkly eyeshadow for a a little more muted effect) then layer with mask. Most importantly – eat first.
