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.
Who were your favourite looks at this years Met Ball?
Selena Gomez looked SO good while preforming her newest single “The Heart wants what it wants” at the 2014 American Music Award’s.
For her walk down the red carpet, Selena wore her hair in a low bun and a bold rep lip to match her dangling statement earrings. For her face, Makeup artist Jake Bailey used NYX’s Illuminator in Chaotic to highlight parts of her face like her cheekbones. Jake used the NYX Dream Catcher Palette in Dusk Till Dawn on her eyes and created a beautiful bronze haze and finished it off with a sophisticated lip using NYX Simply Red Lip Cream pencil in Leading Lady.
For her performance, Selena kept the same makeup on but switching her lip colour to match her light nude-pink dress. She changed her hair from up to down with long extensions in and her hair with light curls and two front pieces clipped up.
#beautynote For a full body glow like Selena’s mix a lotion (La Mer, reparative body lotion was used on the star) with your favourite illuminating lotion or powder.
The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards took place in Brooklyn, New York last night. I am sure we all observed a few extraordinary celebrity occurances at the awards. From Gaga’s opener, to Miley’s raunchy (and inappropriate) performance, to JT stealing the show with his 20 minute medley – we were definitely left entertained to say the least. Also including the rumoured and highly anticipated *NSYNC reunion followed by Katy Perry closing the show under the Brooklyn Bridge with her new single “Roar”. Lastly, Taylor Swift was seemingly caught telling ex-boyfriend Harry Styles to “shut the f**k up” at the Awards. Indeed, this year’s VMA’s was definitely one to make headlines. But, of course, despite all the uproar, we did see some beauty trends that were definitely noteworthy!
Here are our favourite Beauty looks from the red carpet.
Katy Perry let her natural beauty shine through with a sleek high pony, dewy skin. We are obsessed with her perfectly groomed brows that tie this look together.
Taylor played up on an old Hollywood glam look with a cherry lip and pinned up curls. We love how she portrays a sexy look and still keeps it classy.
Selena shows us a perfect example of how you can play up both eyes and lips without being over the top. She is right on trend with her cat eye and berry lip. Also, her poise and confidence is definitely very admirable.
Lady Gaga actually had normal, voluminous hair for a few minutes last night! I don’t think she has ever rocked quite a normal hairdo! We loved her bouncy curls and perfectly contoured cheekbone when she was photographed after congratulating One Direction.
Talk about the most gorgeous bronze skin tone! Ciara’s skin glowed as she posed for the camera on the red carpet. And it wasn’t just her face – the dress she wore gave us a good clue that her sunkiss glow naturally encompasses her entire body!
