2015 Met Ball Beauty

The 2015 Met Ball was held Monday in New York. This years theme was China: Through the Looking Glass. Here are some stand out beauty looks (and products) from the night.

Rihanna’s gown and stunning headpiece were perfectly complimented by her Makeup. Mylah Morales created her look with an Asian-inspired color palette (lots of pinks) and used blush on both her eyes and lips. The focus of the look were her bold brows. She used Diorshow Brow Styler (one of our faves) to define and groom.

Selena Gomez went for a sexy and sophisticated look with a sleek updo, dark red lips, a smokey cat eye and lots of lashes to really emphasize the drama.

Kendall Jenner – the face of Estee Lauder – showed up with defined brows, dewy skin and a sleek wing liner. To achieve the wing, Kendall’s makeup artist used Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Zero-Smudge Liquid Eyeliner in Black and defined her long lashes with Little Black Primer. To create those bold brows, the Automatic Brow Pencil was applied and finished off with a pink pout by applying Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Insatiable Ivory all over her lips.

Cara Delevingne made a statement with her full sleeve faux body art, nude lips and some seriously sexy smokey eyes.

All hail the Queen Bee – Beyoncé – when it comes to any appearance, her makeup is always flawless and coordinates with the clothes she wears. This year at the 2015 Met Ball, Beyoncé wore only affordable makeup that you can get at your nearest drug store… and yes, we do mean L’Oreal!

To create Beyonce’s mod eye, her makeup artist used a mix of L’Oreal Paris Infallible Eye Shadows in Endless Sea and Infinite Sky ($8.00) which stood out beautifully against her sun kissed skin. She finished off the look with the Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara in black.

2015 Grammys Beauty – The Minimalist Makeup look

This past Sunday The 57th annual Grammys were hosted at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. As usual, we couldn’t get enough of all the makeup, hair and dresses! We noticed many of the celebs embraced the “minimal makeup look” with luminous skin, nude lips, neutral eyes and beautifully sculpted brows.

Gwen and Miley swapped their crimson colour lips for nudes, Beyonce said hello to carved out cheekbones and a glossy lip and Rihanna let her tutu like Giambattista Valli dress do all the talking with a subtle bronzed look and defined brows! One things for sure, everyone’s skin looked glowing with subtle contouring similar to what was shown in many designers Spring/Summer 2015 runway shows.

GET THE LOOK:

For a instant boost of radiance use a product such as Dior’s Glow Maximizer Primer. This product is great to use on it’s own or mixed with your favourite liquid foundation. It instantly brightens dull complexions, sculpts the face, and amplifies the skin’s natural light leaving you with a flawless finish.

Achieve clean and defined brows like the stars by applying Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW Pomade with Anastasia’s Brush #12.

Beauty Note: Whether it be sparkly lips or lids, there are multiple ways to help the glitter adhere to the skin better. Firstly, start with moisturizer. Secondly, you can use Vaseline Petroleum Jelly or a mixing medium, which creates base for the glitter to stick to. For your lips specifically, mixing the glitter with clear lipgloss or balm works well.

Beauty Note: To create some vibrant lids, Maybelline New York’s 24HR Color Tattoo Collection is highly pigmented and will last you through the day and all through the night.

To end off our list, we had to finish off with the fabulous Rihanna. She shocked everyone last year in this bejewelled number that turned more than a few heads. Filled in brows, black liner on her lids with a touch of shimmer on the inner corners of her eyes, and a matte nude lip was perfectly paired with her glitzy carnival costume.

 

Beauty Note: To add more “oomph” to those lashes, Dior’s Addict-It Colored Mascaras from their summer collection is perfect. You can match it to your parade costume or simple have your lashes stand out, making a bold statement on their own!
