Met Gala Make-up Cheat Sheet!

The recently held Metropolitan Museum of Art Institute Gala was a meeting of all things beautiful and sparkly. Stars really try to amp it up and outshine each other during this event. Among my favorites were Eva Mendez, Madonna, Alexa Chung, Nicole Richie and Jessica Stam.

Did you know that the genius behind all these gorgeous looks is Nars? Of course, the Hollywood A-listers would choose nothing less. And for you, my dear readers, as is tradition for any big event worth mentioning, I will breakdown the make-up used for some of the most memorable looks during the Met Gala. Enjoy and replicate! :)

First on the list: Claire Danes



MAKEUP ARTIST : Matin M.


THE LOOK: The dress was like a shimmery liquid sand and Exotic Dance Duo Eyeshadow resembled that. I couldn't resist using it. For elongating the eyes and defining them, the Via Appia Larger Than Life Eyeliner was perfect in keeping the lids gold and glossy without being too heavy,” said Matin.

NARS PRODUCTS USED: Exotic Dance Duo Eyeshadow (NEW for Summer 2011!), Gold Member Cream Blush (on lips!); Via Appia Larger Than Life

Long-Wear Eyeliner (NEW for Fall 2011!); Gold Digger Larger Than Life Lip Gloss (NEW for Fall 2011!)

Eva Mendez - always gorgeous!




MAKEUP ARTIST
: Julie Harris for NARS Cosmetics

NARS PRODUCTS USED:
Orgasm Blush; Laguna Multiple (NEW for Summer 2011!); Copacabana Illuminator; Isolde Duo Eyeshadow; Via Appia Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner (NEW for Fall 2011!); Hollywoodland Soft Touch Shadow Pencil; Nabucco Eyeliner Stylo; Tonga Lipliner Pencil; Casablanca Lipstick

...don't you just LOVE Nars Orgasm Blush??? can't go wrong with Nars, really!!!

Sexy, Chloe Sevigny:

MAKEUP ARTIST : Daniel Martin for NARS Cosmetics

THE LOOK: “Her dress was a gift, custom-made for her, from Alexander McQueen. In typical Chloe fashion, we wanted her makeup to look almost slept-in. So we applied the liner and quickly smudged it out – it was the perfect cool-girl effect,” said Daniel about the look he created using the new Via Veneto Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner.

NARS PRODUCTS USED : Bali Single Eyeshadow; Via Veneto Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner; Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara and Lengthening Mascara; Laguna Bronzing Powder; Penny Lane Cream Blush; Odalisque Larger Than Life Lip Gloss

love this look!!!...wonder if I can pull it off

My all-time favorite style icon...Nicole Richie:

MAKEUP ARTIST :
Eric Polito for NARS Cosmetics

THE LOOK: “It was a nod to old Hollywood glamour,” said Eric about Richie’s layered black-and-green eyes paired with rich lips.

NARS PRODUCTS USED: Blended as shadows, Rue de Rivoli Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner and Via Vieneto Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner; Terre de Feu Pure Matte Lipstick

Emma Stone :

MAKEUP ARTIST: Rachel Goodwin

NARS PRODUCTS USED :
Carthage Pure Matte Lipstick (NEW for Summer 2011!)

Mary-Kate Olsen:
the list wouldn't be complete without her, another fave style icon of mine :)

MAKEUP ARTIST : Celebrity Makeup Artist Molly R. Stern, for NARS Cosmetics

THE LOOK: “Wearing vintage Givenchy Haute Couture, she left looking like a Klimt painting,” said Molly about the intense look she created on Mary Kate.

NARS PRODUCTS USED: Laguna Multiple (NEW for Summer 2011!), Sex Appeal Blush, Dragon Girl Velvet Matte Lip Pencil (on eyes); Exhibit A Blush (on eyes); Via Appia Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner (NEW for Fall 2011!); Coconut Grove Eyeshadow; Bolero Velvet Matte Lip Pencil (NEW for Summer 2011!)

followed by her equally beautiful sister,
Ashley Olsen:

THE LOOK: “ Her skin was innocent in contrast to her glamorous gown,” said Molly about the glowing and “truly chic” starlet she created the look for.

(Super Cool) Alexa Chung:

MAKEUP ARTIST :
Tamah K. for NARS Cosmetics

THE LOOK: “It was very mod – very 60s, but the glitz gave it modernity. We felt we should do the same with the makeup look, which simply demanded a graphic cat-eye with shimmer and neutral lip,” said Tamah about Alexa’s look.

NARS PRODUCTS USED:
Exotic Dance Duo Eyeshadow (NEW for Summer 2011!); Dogon Duo Eyeshadow (NEW For Summer 2011!); Via Veneto Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner (NEW for Fall 2011!); Jilted Love Lipliner Pencil, Bolero Velvet Matte Lip Pencil (NEW for Summer 2011!)

There you have it! Hope you enjoyed this post and will use it as future reference for stunning A-list looks.

TIP: when dressing up for an event, pay attention to the design and color of your dress, use it as a reference point for the type of make-up you will apply just as these world-famous make-up artists do.

TIP2: got an event soon? don't know what to wear? want a no-brainer? choose a dress in a color that will compliment your complexion from the examples above and just follow their make-up to the tee. that will have you looking like a star in no time!
