Best Beauty Moments from the Met Gala

The Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art took place on the first Monday of May. This year’s theme  Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, which challenged designers and their A-list muses to conceptualize godly looks that challenged the conventions of style. While the gowns and suits were out of this world, the beauty and glam were just as stunning. Here’s a recap of the best beauty looks of the evening and a round up of products to recreate them.

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande’s MUA went for a glow, dewy look finished off with a statement winged liner. Her MUA didn’t specify the products used for this look, but Tom Ford is a favorite of many of our faves — including Beyonce, who wore their Ultimate bronzer for her Beychella performance.

Bella Hadid

Bella Hadid’s makeup artist, Mary Phillips, used Dior makeup to achieve this look. Find the exact matches to the items used below!


Cardi B

Cardi B’s makeup glam was the perfect match for her glorious look created by Jeremy Scott of Moschino. Her makeup artist Erika La’Pearl used a full line of Marc Jacobs Beauty plus Kiss Products lashes to achieve this look.

Emily Ratajkowski

Emily Ratajkowski’s glam gave us ethereal Cleopatra gives. MUA Joyce Bonelli beautifully complimented her gold gown with a subtle yet glowy look using Marc Beauty products that easily topped the list of best glam for the night. She noted Marc Beauty’s ‘Coconut Fantasy’ liquid highlighter is a product favorite.


Gigi Hadid

Gigi Hadid served us classic Hollywood glam with a hint of extra glow, following through with the biggest beauty trend of the night. She cited Maybelline as the source of her effortless glam for the night.

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez has been serving us glow makeup glam since the 2000s, so it’s no surprise that she took her throne as the glow queen at this year’s Met Gala. She wore a full face of Ingot cosmetics from her makeup line collaboration with the brand to achieve this simple yet flawless look.

Kim Kardashian and Makeup by Mario have gained notoriety for their makeup collaborations in the past, but this year’s look may just be their most popular yet. To offset the simplicity of her chainmail gown, Kim went for an ultra smokey eye with a simple yet nude lip. Although they didn’t cite which makeup line they used, we can safely assume that Mario used a combination of KKW and MBM products.

Rihanna showed up to the Met Gala red carpet looking like the pope of the night. The over-the-top embellishment of her custom outfit was the perfect matched for her vibrant beauty glam, which was no-doubt created with nothing but her very own Fenty Beauty products
