Fashion wasn’t the only thing pushing the envelope on the Met Gala red carpet – beauty had its own spotlight too. Here are our picks for the night’s most striking beauty looks:
RiRi pulls out the stops just by walking down the street, so we knew she would bring it at this year’s Met and then some. Giving us major Memoirs of a Geisha vibes, she rocked a high bun, long fringe and insane blush! If the rumours are true about her giving us a taste of what’s to come in her new cosmetics range, consider us officially excited.
Gigi Hadid and Candice Swanepoel were fierce and feline. Gigi went for a graphic cat eye, creating a double line that joined at the end and extended outward for drama. Her South African counterpart, Candice Swanepoel, went full glamazon, covering her entire eyelid with black liner tapering into a heavy wing, for a powerful, unforgettable look.
Lily Collins was almost unrecognisable in her full femme fatale glam. With deep purple lips, fair skin and a cropped fringe, she looked as if she’d just stepped off the set of a vampire movie. She amped up her lashes with mascara and went for a thick and prominent brow to accentuate her look.
