The Best Of Beauty At The Met Gala

The Best Of Beauty At The Met Gala

Labelled as fashion’s biggest night out, the Met Gala is a fundraising benefit held every year for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The event brings in the best A-list celebrities, creatives, and fashion industry legends with a chosen theme every year that everyone needs to dress to. This year’s theme was, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination so it’s no surprise that we saw such dramatic looks from the guests.

Here are some of our favourite heavenly makeup looks and iconic hair styles from this years Met Gala!

Blake Lively

It seems actress Blake Lively has been crowned the queen of this years Met Gala based on her incredible dress by Versace. Though her dress was very busy, her makeup complimented it perfectly by being on the subtle side with a light berry lip and eye shadow to match the block colour of her dress. You don’t have to break the bank for this look as her makeup artist Kristofer Buckle used all L’Oreal makeup to master this look! To achieve this look yourself try using L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in a berry shade that compliments your tone and keep an eye out for the new L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Eyeshadow Palette that is launching this July!

Rihanna

Everyone on social media is SO hyped over Rihanna‘s style choice for this years Met Gala as she absolutely nailed the theme with this breathtaking garment custom-made by John Galliano. Of course, when it came down to her beauty choices, she used products from her own collection, Fenty Beauty, to achieve the gunmetal smokey eye, lavender lips and glowing skin! Check out our celebrity launches blog to see the latest product launches from Fenty Beauty to get perfect glowing skin for the season.

Lily Collins

Actress Lily Collins stunned the gold carpet with her gothic style choice in both her outfit and makeup choices. Makeup artist, Fiona Stiles used all Lancôme products to master this look. For Lily’s flawless complexion Fiona used Lancôme Le Tient Idole Ultra 24H Longwear Foundation and we love the Lancôme Lipgloss in Purple Onyx against her smokey eye using Lancôme Colour Design Eye Shadows in Smokey Brown and Volcano Shimmer. Plus, the glittery tear trend is ever popular with the festival season so you could definitely recreate this look with a brighter eye and some Gypsy Shrine jewels!

Kendall Jenner

The Kardashian/Jenner family are always ones to watch at any event and always ones to style out a slick back ponytail. Celebrity hair stylist and founder of OUAI Haircare, Jen Atkin styled ‘It girls’ Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin and Bella Hadid‘s hair for this years Gala and we’re in love with this shiny, classic style on Kendall. Paired with light contour, dark eyes and flawless eyebrows it’s no surprise she’s all over the beauty favourite this year.

Ariana Grande

The queen of winged eyeliner Ariana Grande didn’t disappoint this year with wings fit for an angel. The singer’s dress by Vera Wang mirrored the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel with stunning pastel shades that resonate in her makeup with her glossy nude lip and a touch of pastel blue eye shadow in the corners of her eyes. To achieve such a bold and eye catching wing we love using the Eyeko FAT Liquid Liner that appeared in our April box.

she looks so stunning omg !! ??? #metgala #metgala2018 #arianagrande

Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld has been attending the Met Gala since she was 14 years old so obviously she’s an absolute pro at it now. Following the headpiece trend that many guests favoured last night she modelled a stunning jewelled crown with windswept tousled hair styled by hairstylist Gregory Russel using amika Plus Size Perfect Body Mousse and amika Un.done Volume and Texture Spray. Against her white dress, the bold raspberry lip created by makeup artist Mary Phillips really made one of her best features pop!

I think it is so important to follow a beauty routine that works for YOU - you don't need to follow the crowd. I am always researching and trying out new looks, products and routines that are fresh and popular amongst the global beauty community to keep up to date with what's on trend and what works best. If you name a product, I've probably tried it.
