Whilst fashion is obviously the focal point of attention when it comes to the Met Gala, the beauty looks of the night shouldn’t go unappreciated either. The Met being as high profile as it is means that the stars went all out with their beauty looks last night, with shimmering eyeshadows aplenty and even references to mythological fairytales. Read on for the most commanding looks of the night.
Kaia Gerber attended the event wearing an Alexander McQueen dress and some stunning jewellery courtesy of Kwiat Diamonds. The main aspect of note though was her beauty look, with the model beaming with a soft glow, long lashes and some dark eyeshadow with tips of a metallic blue, all of which was courtesy of YSL Beauty.
Kendall opted to remove her eyebrows last night (not literally though), dying them to make them barely noticeable to the naked eye. This made her stunningly long eyelashes pop even more and look even longer than they were, so it was definitely an inspired choice.
Olivia embraced the mythical last night and wore a pale lavender dress which sparkled across the night. She made sure to match her makeup too, wearing a dusty lavender eyeshadow with a subtle gradient that ran out to the brow, further adding to mysterious look.
Even though a lot of people may not notice nails on the night, that didn’t stop Cardi B from going all out with hers. The rapper opted for some golden pointed nails which were covered in an abundance of golden and silver jewels and chains, with the collection of jewelry bringing some serious bling to the night.
The most jaw dropping aspect of Lizzo’s look were her mesmerisingly twisted nails. The nails, which extended to twice the length of the singer’s fingers, were black with subtle hints of bronze and twisted out into some delightfully gothic points, perfectly blending with her already gothic outfit.
Naomi embraced the jewels last night, not only wearing a dress adorned with crystals but extending those crystals up onto her face too. The crystals sat amongst a dark eyeshadow, matching her dress and offering a suitably mysterious vibe, and a pale pink lipstick which gave a light brushing of colour to the outfit.
Megan The Stallion
Megan’s beauty look was totally on point last night, with the rapper donning a stunning silver eyeshadow which was immaculately applied and commanded the room with ease. The shade of the eye also matched Megan’s shoulder pads and was combined with an equally commanding lip for a complete, fierce look.
Teyana embraced the colour of royalty last night in both her dress and her makeup. The deep shade of purple that the singer was wearing matched perfectly with her outfit and brought out some mystery in her eyes, creating a truly captivating look. Teyana also wore a nude shade lipstick which was glossy and brought a subtle shine to her face.
Winnie Harlow also sported some seriously long lashes, and combined them with a matching black winged eyeliner which styled out into a seriously sharp point. Her eyebrow game was also fierce, looking sleek and smooth.
Cynthia embodied pure royalty last night, both thanks to her outfit and her beauty look. Her nails were commanding most of the attention, with Cynthia opting for a black and gold colour palette which allowed both colours to stand out well amongst each other and complement each other at the same time.
Gigi wore a ruby red outfit last night and took steps to ensure that her makeup matched too. The model wore a stunningly bright ruby red lipstick which shimmered and shined down the red carpet, matching flawlessly with the rest of her look.
Bella went for a gothic look last night, and whilst her dress was obviously a large part of that, her hair helped too. The model opted for a traditional middle parting and braids that ran down both sides of her face, evoking a traditionally Victorian style that worked well with her outfit.
Kim kept it simple and subtle with her makeup last night. The model’s enticingly long lashes were complemented by her smooth, sleek brows and she wore a pale nude lipstick which brought attention to her lips without being overbearing or detracting from any other aspect of her look.
