Must-See Makeup from the 2017 Met Gala

Met Gala Makeup

One word comes to mind when describing the style at last night’s Met Gala: wild.  Dubbed “The Super Bowl of Fashion,” the annual event honors the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s latest fashion exhibit.  When we weren’t ogling at Rihanna’s explosive pink ensemble or Zendaya’s exotic gown, our eyes were trained on the diverse makeup looks.  Whether you’re headed to graduation, a gala, or something in-between, get inspired with our standout Met Gala Makeup picks.


Both sweet and sexy, Lily Rose Depp gave her feminine gown an edge with a bold cat-eye.

Kendall Jenner Makeup

Is there ever a time KJ doesn’t look flawless? (…We’ll wait.)  The reality starlet gave some lip with a red pout that offset her sparkling black gown.

Kylie Jenner Makeup

The makeup mogul faced off with a nude lip, dark lashes, and a metallic shadow that matched the ladylike detailing of her dress.

Selena Gomez Makeup

Now that’s a statement!  A stark contrast to her delicate dress, Selena Gomez went bold with bright pink eyeshadow that extended beyond her brows.

Rihanna Met Gala

A bold outfit means toned down makeup, right?  Not if you’re bad girl RiRi! More is more with allover pink blush, shadow, and lips.

Gigi Hadid Met Gala

When in doubt, wing it way out!  Gigi Hadid’s muted lips let her dramatic cat eye take center stage.

Lily Collins Met Gala

A little inspiration from Morticia Addams, perhaps?  Lily Collins went full-on gothic with inky lashes, oxblood lips, and just a hint of blush to complement her fair skin tone.  Loved her look?  Recreate it for yourself, starting with this dress.

Zendaya Met Gala

Talk about pattern perfection!  Zendaya played off her printed gown with a bold lip and simple eye makeup.

Lupita Nyong'o Met Gala

A work of art in itself, Lupita Nyong’o’s multi-colored eyeshadow lit up her skin tone and flawlessly complemented her neutral lips.

Candice Swanepoel Met Gala

Similar to Gigi, Candice Swanepoel went for edgy glam with thick winged liner to match her black ball gown.
