As today’s most in-demand makeup artist, Pat McGrath is surrounded by beauty. Inspired by her decadent Instagram which features hundreds of vintage photos, Sotheby’s asked McGrath to select her favorite works from our upcoming photographs auctions. “It was difficult but thrilling. My studio table was covered in images,” said McGrath on the process of choosing just 17. “Nearly all of the subjects and photographers have inspired me during my career. The dark glamour of Marilyn Monroe inspired a PAT McGRATH LABS collection named DARK STAR 006, portraits of Edie Sedgwick are one of the best examples of eye pencil done right, and the macro majesty of Ormond Gigli is always a reference on my mood boards.” Click ahead to discover McGrath’s final picks. –Stephanie Sporn
