Top 3 Easy-To-Emulate Met Gala Beauty Looks

The Vampy Lip
The darker and vampier the better! With a nod to next season’s A/W Twenties trend, Camilla Belle and Lana Del Rey were just two of the many gorgeous ladies at the bash who sported this surprisingly easy-to-wear trend.
Get the look: Guerlain Rouge Automatique in 170 Nuit d’Amour, a gorgeous berry purple and Rouge Dior 862 Hypnotic Red, a deep, dark red.
Tip: Don’t feel confident enough to go the whole hog? Blot your lips after one coat of lip colour and apply lip balm to dilute the hue.

The Big Lash
Alexa Chung and Katy Perry wowed with their ultra long and luscious fringe of lashes. It’s an easy way to look bright eyed, and whether you opt for falsies or build your lashes up with lots of mascara it’s a youthful look that suits everyone.
Get the look: With two pairs of lashes in one set, the Mister Mascara Mega Lash Kit is the perfect solution for those with sparse lashes, while the Too Faced Size Queen Mascara is great for pumping up the volume and length.
Tip: Comb your lashes between coats to prevent clumps. When you’re happy with the thickness, build up the length by coating the tips of lashes with the tip of the mascara wand.

 

The Suits-All Quiff
This is the perfect look if you’re struggling to grow out a fringe, and it works equally as well on short styles as it does on longer hair. Build up the volume for a quirky and cool up-do as seen on Carey Mulligan, or twist up sections of your long hair a la Rihanna.
Get the look: Style it up with the strong hold TIGI Catwalk Session Series Work It Hairspray and the versatile Mason Pearson Styling Comb.
Tip: Be gentle with the backcombing as it can be very damaging to hair. Make up for this with styling products that build hair up and lock it into place.
