Get Ready to Fall in Love With the Midnight Sun

With a little help from Pat McGrath

ByKaila R.

The Pat McGrath Labs’s Mothership has landed with the new Mothership IV: Midnight Sun Palette! This eyeshadow palette has been shaking up Instagram, and now it will be in the hands of some of our lucky Influensters.

Mother packed this palette with magical bronzes, wicked violets, mystical crimsons, and divine golds! These 10 richly pigmented matte and duochrome shades with next-generation formulas will highlight, line, and define your eyes. With a range of shades, you'll be able to create endlessly luxurious day to night looks! We're breaking down how to get two fierce looks with this one palette below.



Get the low key look

  1. Sweep shade TABOO through the crease, blending outwards and along the lower lash line to softly contour the eye.

  2. Apply a wash of BRONZE ECLIPSE across the lids with a blending brush until reaching the desired level of shimmer.

  3. Smudge XTREME DUSK along the upper and lower lash line to accentuate the shape of the eye.

  4. Finish the look by highlighting the inner corner and brow bone with SKINSHOW MOON GLOW.


Get the high key look

  1. Diffuse VERMILLION VENOM through the crease and outer corner, making sure to blend outwards to extend the eye.

  2. Accentuate the eye by pressing JUBILEE onto the inner half of the lid.

  3. Use a dampened brush to apply BLOOD MOON 005 onto the outer half of the lid. Blend the color outwards with a small blending brush.

  4. Next, blend the colors together on the center of the lid with your finger.

  5. Illuminate the inner corners with ASTRAL SOLSTICE to finish the eye.
