Monday night saw a whole host of fashion-forward celebs gather in New York for the MET Gala 2015 – an annual fundraising event for the Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, which marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s fashion exhibition. This year the theme was China: Through the Looking Glass, and we saw plenty of Oriental influences and glass-inspired outfits, as well as some stunning make up looks. We’ve picked three of our favourite famous beauties from the MET Gala 2015 and we’re going to show you how you can recreate their looks at home – and you can find all the products mentioned at HQHair.com.
Step 1. After applying your base makeup, line the eyes with Lord & Berry Luxury Eye Liner in Black, and bring down just underneath your bottom lash line. Blend out with a cotton bud.
Step 2. Now it’s time to get smoky! Using the Bourjois Smoky Eyes Trio in Gris Dandy, apply the mid toned grey to the middle of the lid. Using a smaller brush, add definition to the outer corners of the eyes using the darker shade and blend into the crease and into the outer corner of your lower lid. Finally, add a dab of the lightest shade to the inner corner of your eyes to open them up!
Step 3. Get Adriana’s show stopping lips with the NARS Cosmetics Fall Colour Collection Audacious Lipstick in Charlotte. This step is simple, just apply to the lips! The long lasting finish will keep you turning heads for hours.
Step 4. Add a final touch of emphasis with the Eylure Lashes No. 143 Exaggerate!
Step 1. After applying your base foundation and powder, bronze like Beyoncé with the limited edition NARS Cosmetics Tahiti Laguna Bronzing Powder. Apply to the cheeks, nose and anywhere else you’d like to look sunkissed!
Step 2. Using Rimmel Scandaleyes Jumbo Liner in black, line across your top lash brushing outwards using the very tip of the liner to create that gorgeous feathered flick!
Step 3. Get the nude pink lips using Rimmel Provocalips Transfer Proof Lipstick in Dare to Pink. With a layer of the top coat, you’ll have kiss proof, transfer proof and food proof lips for up to 16 hours!
Step 1. After applying your base, sweep NARS Eye Paint in Black Valley across the upper lash line and flick outwards and upwards to create the perfect flirty feline eye! The thicker and longer the line, the bolder the look!
Step 2. Exaggerate the eyes even more with Rimmel Extra 3D Lash Mascara in Black. Push the lashes outwards towards the side of your face to add to the cat eye you created earlier!
Step 3. Slick the Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Lipstick in Rose on the Rocks across the lips for a perfect pink pout!
