She launched the makeup line in 2016, and in just two years skyrocketed to a successful billion dollar brand. The only other authorized seller is Sephora.
Her resume is quite impressive, ranging from developing products for CoverGirl, Dolce &Gabbana, Dior and Gucci. She’s done makeup for Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Madonna, Sarah Jessica Parker, Naomi Campbell, Oprah Winfrey, and Gigi Hadid.
In January, Bergdorf Goodman partnered with the Pat McGrath label to launch a pop up shop devoted to her work, marking a movement for the first time a beauty brand has opened up a retail space within a store.
