I love seeing the amazing get-ups that celebrities wear to the Met Gala. It’s a chance to be a little bit outrageous with hair, clothes and makeup. Before we dive in to some of the most awesome Met Makeup looks, a little history / context is in order!

The Met Ball or Met Gala is the fashion world equivalent of the Oscars, an evening when designers, models, and Hollywood stars convene in the yearly event with the most over-the-top looks. This year’s theme is “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” designed to create a dialogue between fashion and the masterworks of religious art in the museum’s holdings.
So, on Monday, May 7, the world waited to see what the celebrity guests would be wearing!
I love the makeup specifically. Even at an event as over-the-top as the Met Gala, there is always inspiration to be taken for fresh, trendy everyday looks that work for the office or the club!
Kate Bosworth – Flushed Cheeks
One of my favorites this year was Kate Bosworth, who looked like a Renaissance painting come to life, with powdery matte skin, flushed cheeks, and center-parted slick hair. The flushed-cheek look is oh so flattering for any occasion, and any skin tone as it brightens the skin and has a youthful appeal. One of the best ways to achieve this is to steer clear of powdery blush, and use a product like rms beauty Lip2Cheek. The unique formula combines hydration and protection with abundant mineral color for a beautiful, natural finish on both lips and cheeks. You can build the color from sheer to a more intense stain, perfect for that Renaisaance look. Try the ‘Demure’ shade – a soft pink rose with a hint of mauve that makes a statement!
Amal Clooney – Signature Lips
Amal Clooney always looks ravishingly beautiful in a classic and almost effortless way. At the Met this year she sported porcelain-perfect skin with a stunning bright matte orange-red lipstick and a tousled ponytail. And boy did she pull it off! An orangey red also suits most people, making teeth appear whiter and bringing a pop of colour. To achieve this look, go for Gucci Gucci Lip Sensuous Deep-Matte Lipstick. The contemporary formula has a lightweight, smooth feel and an extreme matte finish and the intensely deep colors are brought out by the rich, concentrated pigments. It features oil and elastic polymers that create an extreme matte finish while simultaneously giving a supple and silky feel. So the look is there without that drying feeling, and it stays on all day and night! The “Ginger Rose” shade is perfect to get that Amal Clooney look!
Ariana Grande – Winged Eyes
Ariana Grande did not disappoint in the drama stakes. She wore perfectly winged eyeliner, and kept the rest of her makeup fairly nude and natural, which looked amazing on her! To get the eyeliner just right, you need the right tools! Use Guerlain Precision Felt Eyeliner to make it easy on yourself to get that perfect wing! It has the following features! It offers precise, clear and definite drawing to create a natural or graphic look. With a long felt tip, you are assured of an ultra-precise line, and with its water-resistant formula and no transfer texture, it lasts from day to night (8 hours). So, get it right once, and don’t worry again until you take your makeup off!
I hope you’ll try some of these stunning looks! And, of course, all makeup looks wonderful on hydrated, beautiful skin, so we’ll dive into one of my favorite skin topics next time – moisturizer!
