Max Factor Creative Design Director Pat McGrath combines her trend knowledge and heritage inspiration for the brand's 100 year anniversary's finale. Using Candice as her muse, she has created a powerful 'Party' look - a refreshing and new approach to glamorous party looks, using bold colours and the very best in make-up artistry know-how.

Max Factor have celebrated 100 Years of Glamour this year; in 1914 Mr. Max Factor launched his first ever cosmetic; Flexible Greasepaint. He went on to shape the world of make-up and brought about make-up favourites of today such as the mascara wand and lip gloss.

Now, renowned make-up artist Pat McGrath creates a beauty look we will all be wearing through the party season.

"This is a very bold, brave, decadent and hedonistic look" says Max Factor Global Creative Design Director Pat McGrath, recently awarded an MBE for her services to the fashion and beauty industry.

"Bold shimmers, lots of colour, full blush, glossy lips. This is a really strong couture look that women can take inspiration from. You can take the blush, a bold lip, even use the eyeshadow and just work it as an eyeliner - you can literally break it apart to make the perfect party look for you and if you're brave, do the whole thing."

Max Factor products and unique makeup artistry techniques help to inspire the must-have party season looks. Following her visionary shoot, Pat shared her Party Edit;
