PatMcGrath x The Met Collection Celebrates Makeup & Jewelry

PatMcGrath Labs and the Metropolitan Museum of Art partnered to create makeup inspired by a jewelry exhibition that starts this November.

Pat McGrath (PMG) has created a Mothership Eye Palette, two shades of lip gloss and t-shirts with the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The collaboration celebrates a new exhibit called Jewelry: The Body Transformed, that goes down from November 12, 2018 to February 24, 2019.

The PMG x The Met Mothership V Eye Palette ($125) features ten sparkly shades inspired by jewelry. Colors include: Skinshow Divine Glow, Gilty Pleasure, Entrapment, Rose Gold 005, VR Fire Opal, Xtreme Aubergine, Blaze Bronze, Disobedient, Bronze Blaze and Blitz Flame. Lust: Gloss Blitz Gold ($28) is a reissue and looks like a nude with gold flakes when applied. Lust: Gloss Aliengenic ($28) has silver sparkles that looks good over rose, berry and purple lipstick.

The collaboration also includes the Adorned S/S T ($75) shown above, and the Adorned L/S T ($95), which has long sleeves. There is space under to graphic to cut it into a crop top if desired.

Museum representatives describe the exhibit, “What is jewelry? Why do we wear it? What meanings does it carry? Traversing time and space, this exhibition explores how jewelry acts upon and activates the body it adorns. This global conversation about one of the most personal and universal of art forms brings together some 230 objects drawn almost exclusively from the Met collection.” Watch the promotional video below.

The exhibit will feature headdresses, ear ornaments, brooches, belts, necklaces, rings and bracelets from past and present. There will also be paintings, prints and photographs about jewelry. If you love makeup, art, makeup art and jewelry, be sure to catch it in New York.
