Whether you want to recreate Nicole Richie’s plummy pout, Kristen Stewart’s smoky eyes, or Jessica Alba’s perfect locks, we have the inside scoop on exactly how each of their respective makeup artists created their looks for the Met Gala. Click inside for details!
Nicole’s makeup artist Eric Polito wanted to create a look that complemented her vintage-inspired Jason Wu dress. To start, Polito used Nars’ Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner on each eye, blending the Rue de Rivoli shade with the Via Veneto shade. (These products will launch this fall.) On the lips, Polito used Nars’ Pure Matte Lipstick in Terre de Feu ($25).
Kristen’s makeup artist Beau Nelson created a sultry look for Kristen that worked perfectly with her subtly sexy Proenza Schouler dress. To start, Nelson applied Cover Girl’s Liquiline Blast Eyeliner ($7.99) to each eye, followed by Cover Gir’sl LineExact Liquid Liner ($7.39) in Very Black. Then, he added a smoky black eye shadow and finished with Cover Girl’s Lash Blast Fusion Mascara ($9.49).
Jessica’s hair stylist Renato Campora was inspired by the shimmery texture of Jessica’s Ralph Lauren Collection gown. He created his look by applying Fekkai’s Advanced Full Blown Volume Styling Whip ($23) to Jessica’s wet hair and then blowdrying with a round brush. Using his fingers, he pulled the hair back and secured it at the crown of the head. Next, he rolled the hair and fastened it with bobby pins, before wrapping one piece of hair around the bottom of the ponytail. To finish, he added the glittering Ralph Lauren Collection hairpiece and then sprayed with Fekkai’s Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray.
