On Monday, McGrath shared a video on Instagram of a bright fuchsia, red, and deep eggplant lip covered in glitter that’s completely mesmerizing. The clip opens with with a blank lip canvas and the vibrant hues are painted on and built from there.

Her caption included a full breakdown on how to repeat the sparkly look:

#THELOOK #BTS @maisonmargiela #MaisonMargielaSS18 ⚡⚡⚡ “At #MaisonMargiela by @jgalliano I explored a look I love to describe as ‘hyper-real skin’ – a skin inspired by rejuvenated, oxygenated beauty. I created the effect by mixing a heavy moisturizer with a dab of foundation; achieving a radiantly reflective, aliengelic allure. To further heighten the ‘post-shower’ effect, we brushed the brows up and left the lashes bare yet curled. #SKINFETISH003 was used all over the face, with an emphasis on cheekbones, lids, brows, temples, inner corner of eyes, the bridge of the nose and chin. To pull the look together, I created a flocked lip, using LUST: MatteTrance Lipstick Shade ‘FULL PANIC’. J’OBSESSED!” – xxPat
