When CoverGirl announced its Star Wars: The Force Awakens makeup collection, it also revealed that makeup artist Pat McGrath created six looks inspired by the light and dark sides for the line. 

Fans got a glimpse of these looks in photos that made the rounds online in June when CoverGirl officially revealed droid and stormtrooper styles on its Tumblr account.

Thanks to a special CoverGirl event on Tuesday fans can now see the rest of McGrath’s Star Wars looks. CoverGirl and those who attended the event shared the news and what McGrath had to say about her Star Wars work on Twitter and Instagram.
