If you’re anything like us, you will have spent the last two days swooning over what the A Listers wore to the Met Ball in New York on Monday night. In between Cara’s incredible Stella McCartney jumpsuit and Suki Waterhouses’s gorgeous Burberry dress, we have also been poring over some of the amazing make-up looks that featured on the red carpet.

Our favourites? The smokey, feline eye and nude lip on model Karlie Kloss and the old school glamour that was Taylor Swift‘s red lip. The BFFs posed for a picture together on both of their Instagram profiles before the event – and we want to recreate both faces as soon as possible!
