It’s that time of year again. From wishin’ we were sat on the MET steps rockin’ that Upper East Side lifestyle, to now being more obsessed with the annual event which is THE place to be seen in the world of fashion. However, it’s not just about what you’re wearing, it’s what makeup and hair you’ve picked. Here are our fave MET Gala beauty and hair trends.

MET Gala Beauty and Hair Trends 2019

Emily Ratajkowski

Beaut Emily Ratajkowski looked killa’ at the MET Gala using a mix of Kérastase hair products to get her woke-up-like-this levels of flawless. Hair stylist Jennifer Yepez gave Em a middle parting and sprayed the Kérastase Elixir Ultime oil through the ends to create a wet-look hairstyle that we need to try out this weekend – came thru drippin’.

Serving sass, our gal Rihanna definitely kept to the Heavenly Bodies theme. We’re livin’ for this extra AF embellished look by Galliano, and her built up smokey eye. We haven’t got the 411 on the products used by Riri just yet, so we’ve added in our fave ever products you can use to create blended out smokes.

Kylie Jenner

King Kylie looked bomb on her first red carpet appearance since the birth of baby Stormi, and she absolutely nailed the glam. We’re obsessed with her skin’s glow up too, with a deep bronze that’s got us dreaming of our next getaway…

Kim Kardashian

Kim K’s makeup bae Mario Dedivanovic focused on the queen’s skin for this look, ensuring that there were plenty of brightening products that’ll help with the glow on the red carpet and when she’s being papped.

Kendall Jenner

Beaut Kendall Jenner slayed the MET Gala hair trends game this 2019 with a sleek, slicked back ponytail.

With her hair styled by close friend Jen Atkin, we wanna help you get the look (without spending months avoiding the hairdresser). Add some Beauty Works hair extensions to get extra length without having to wait, and these ones have all been designed with Jen Atkin herself.

Gigi Hadid

Zayn who? Gigi slayed the red carpet and looked angelic, as ever. Her dewy skin is complemented by ombre nude lips and a subtle cross drawn onto her eye with pearlescent shimmer, one of our fave MET Gala makeup trends this year.

If you wanna recreate this subtle nude ombre lip look, then have a look at our fave products below. Don’t forget, use a darker colour on the outside of the lips and go lighter towards the middle to make your lips look fuller.

Ariana Grande

Beaut Ariana Grande nailed the MET Gala theme this year, and her classic ballgown shape looked incred with her trademark slicked back ponytail. To look as perf’ as Ariana all night, we’ve listed our fave ever hairsprays and hair gels below, to make sure your hair stays in shape while you’re making shapes.

Jourdan Dunn

Model bae Jourdan Dunn stays slayin’ in one of our fave drugstore brands Maybelline. Her flawless skin glows, and lips are left as a sheer gloss to let her exaggerated cateye flick and layered lashes do the talkin’.

Our absolute fave Maybelline products are all here:

Jasmine Sanders

Kirakira KWEEN. The beaut Jasmine Sanders (AKA Golden Barbie) goes full on Rapunzel with long braids, entwined with golden thread and red roses, created using Cloud Nine products.

Don’t forget to read our guide to the best hair strengthening products to get your own Rapunzel-length locks.


SZA’s perf’ waves look incredible with her embellished bodice, and we’re living for the amount of drama this look is serving.

Rosie Hutington-Whitely

Angel Rosie HW looks as beautiful as ever. Her skin is absolute glow goals, but we’re also obsessed with her sleek hair, which her stylist Christian Wood achieved by using Wella Professionals Care.

Hailey Baldwin

MET! @tommyhilfiger ?

New hair, who dis? Hailey Baldwin upped her game this year and went for peachy pink locks, coloured by Ryan Pearl, and we’re obsessed with the candy colours complementing her pastel-coloured dress.

If you wanna take the plunge and colour your hair just like Hails, then make sure you invest in some colour-extending hair products, just like these:

Winnie Harlow

Winnie Harlow shows ’em who’s queen, wearing the biggest crown on the red carpet. We’re obsessed with this look, particularly the lashes that Winnie’s sporting.

If you’ve gotta wait until payday to book in for lash extensions (we hear ya), then treat yo’ self to some falsies and lash treatments in the meantime.

When in doubt: add glitter. I'm obsessed with shimmer eyeshadows and always layer up my highlighter.
