Stella McCartney's models on the spring/summer catwalk strutted their stuff with gorgeous glowing skin and a hint of sheer shimmer at Paris Fashion Week.

So naturally, we all need to know how to nail this!

Perfect for the new season, the look is an easy way to lighten up your palette while still easing yourself in to wearing flashes of crazy colour again.

Enter Pat McGrath, creator of the look and Max Factor's Global Creative Design Director...

"Conditioning the skin was essential to ensure the Stella girls were looking fresh and natural for the show," says Pat. "This year, the makeup look was designed to appear very naturally applied, as if they'd done it themselves."

To create the sheer natural looking base, Pat used Max Factor 2 in 1 Ageless Elixir Foundation.

She then followed up the foundation with green eye shadow and blusher; paring it back so the look truly focused on gorgeous, natural skin with beautifully separated lashes.

For a simple, fresh pop of colour on the eyes, Pat recommends using a coloured eyeliner like Laura Mercier Eyeliner in Jungle or Max Factor Colour Xpert Liquid Liner in Metallic Turquoise.

"Stella loved the blue from last season and this year wanted a similar touch of colour, but that was relevant for this collection, so we opted for a dark green shade, applied simply on the inside of the lower lash line."

The essential finishing touch was beautifully defined, gorgeous lashes, for which Pat used the Max Factor Clump Defy Volumising Mascara in brown.

So what do you think? Will you be recreating the look?
