Makeup artist to the stars Pat McGrath, who has worked for years on all the top fashion shows and on everyone from Gisele to Madonna, to Oprah, to Sarah Jessica Parker (check out Pat McGraths' Myspace page for more info), showed us how to create the biggest makeup trends for Spring 2009 easily and inexpensively. And now we're going to show you! "If she already has her foundation, black mascara, eyeliners," says McGrath in her friendly British accent, "she can really try out all of these looks for under $50. That's not bad." The secret? She uses CoverGirl and Max Factor!
