Met Ball Gala Fashions & Makeup Tutorials

Tonight in NYC, celebrities gathered at the highly anticipated Met {Metropolitan Museum} Ball Gala with the theme “Punk: Chaos to Couture” to showcase their latest exhibit. Although most stuck with couture, some individuals really took the opportunity to showcase their best grunge rock look—ahem Miley Cirus.

While not all opting for punk, one thing is for sure… stars didn’t hesitate to pull out all the stops (Oh hai Beyonce ;)).

Kim Kardashion even generated a lot of whispers and tweets with her head to toe… florals?? The gloves though….


I guess not everyone kept to the theme, but it is always interesting to behold the designs hitting the red carpet and the glamorous makeup to accompany each look! Here are some of my faves and how to re-create them:

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway Met Gala 2013

Breuchaud gave a subtle nod to the event’s punk theme by creating a bold, “electric blue” smoky eye to complement Anne Hathaway’s flawless, porcelain skin.

FLAWLESS FACE: A flawless, “clean” face was the perfect canvas for the look

EYES:  Breuchaud went with a “bold smoky” eye to pay homage to the “punk” theme

LIPS: Fresh, natural lips complemented the dramatic eye

Breuchaud applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Pink Blush ($26), which he described as a “beautiful soft pink” to Hathaway’s lips

Claire Danes

Claire Danes Met Gala 2013

Makeup artist Matin Maulawizada drew inspiration from Danes’ “beautifully textured long gold dress.” The dress was “elegant, but had a very modern twist,” which he wanted the makeup look to reflect.  He was also inspired by the “punk” theme of the evening, stating, “I wanted to bring in inspiration from the punk era and make it into a beautiful version fit for the red carpet.”

EYES:  Black-rimmed eyes with a pop of pink

FLAWLESS FACE:  Sun-kissed skin

·         First, Maulawizada applied Laura Mercier Repair Eye Serum ($80) underneath the eyes and on the cheekbones and then applied Laura Mercier Mega Moisturizer Crème SPF 15 in Normal/Combination Skin ($50) all over the face.  Next, he massaged the face using Laura Mercier Foundation Primer ($32) (this happens to be Danes’ favorite part of the make application process!).

·         He next applied Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Nude ($43) and followed with Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact SPF 20 in Nude ($45) for added coverage.

·         Using the Bronzer Veil from the Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Healthy Glow for Face & Cheeks Crème Colour Palette ($48), he contoured her cheeks and blended the color underneath Danes’ chin to even out her “sun-kissed” skin from the weekend.

·         Next, he used Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-3 ($30) to conceal any small imperfections.

·         Lastly, he lightly dusted Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in Translucent ($35) to set her makeup, ensuring she looked flawless all night long.

LIPS: Soft Lips

Ginnifer Goodwin

Ginnifer Goodwin Met Gala 2013

Makeup artist Mai Quynh created a Siouxsie and the Banshees/punk-rock-inspired look for Goodwin, who according to Quynh, “loves wearing edgy makeup.” She stated, “Ginny loves to play up her eyes and wear fun makeup. She’s never afraid of colour or going too bold, and lets me have fun and be daring with her looks.”

I really love this look–it seems very Cleopatra inspired! (Not sure how punk she was though…)

EYES:  Quynh gave Goodwin “heavy, dark eyes” to complement the black leather trim of her floor-length, mixed-metal Tory Burch dress

FLAWLESS FACE:  Goodwin’s skin was radiant with a healthy glow

LIPS: Quynh kept the lips simple and nude

Quynh applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Angelic ($24) onto Goodwin’s lips, allowing the attention to be on her bold eyes.

I hope you found these 3 tutorials useful! There are though quite a few looks I fell in love with from this evening…here are a few more:

Meta Gala Fashions

Black dresses–sexy cut-outs, gold embellishments on Taylor Swift, and pure lace completely covered. Love the many ways to embrace the black dress from little to full cover and still look absolutely breath-taking.

Meta Gala NYC

Glamorous satin couture–simply elegant.

Met Gala 2013

Olivia Wilde embracing the mid-riff trend, semi-casual with monochrome stripes & exotic prints in cener, and a jaw-dropping Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci dress with white doily, angled shoulders and an extreme V-neckline. LOVE the dark lipstick to contrast an all-white attire.

Met Gala Glam

And last–sheer flowy gown with sewn florals and Jessica Alba in a long shapely cut-out dress. Super trendy and red-carpet glam appropriate.
