UK’s legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath has been named D.B.E. – Dame of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II. Appearing in the Queen’s New Year 2021 Honors List, the MUA joins the likes of Craig David MBE and Toby Jones OBE.

I am beyond humbled that I have been awarded a Damehood in the Queen’s New Year 2021 Honors List as a D.B.E – Dame of the British Empire for Services to the Fashion and Beauty Industry and Diversity. I am truly delighted and humbled to be given this wonderful honor. My mother’s obsession with beauty and fashion ignited my passion for this amazing industry and I feel blessed to have the privilege of working with some of the most extraordinary people throughout my career.
