Five Met Gala beauty trends that you can easily emulate

One of fashion most elite fetes, The Met Gala sets trends for months to come. This year too, the event was bigger and better where A-listers flaunted their fashion and beauty best! We might not have a squad of experts to style us, but we can certainly take cues from these gorgeous looks in our own way. Here are five met gala beauty trends that you can easily emulate.

Slicked and pulled back hair

Not only were some of the celebrities dressed up for the part, but they were dressed up for the hot weather too. A-listers were seen with a variation of stylish slicked back hair. Yolanda Hadid had her short blond tresses puffed and pulled back purely with the power of hair styling products. Serene Williams too preferred her hair out of her face, with it pulled back and then let loose. Then there was Blake Lively who let her face be the focal point with her locks tied into a pony.

Handy products to achieve this look:

Beauty Formulas Styling Gel – Wet Look With Blue , Beauty Formulas Styling Gel , Matrix Opticare Serum ,
Toni & Guy Glamour Moisturising Shine Spray , Bblunt Climate Control

Subtle waves

On the other end of the hair spectrum, we saw hair let loose, albeit in a more stylised way. Subtle waves were a rage as seen in models Joan Smalls and Behati Prinsloo who teamed up their loose manes perfectly with body-hugging gowns. Diane Kruger’s short crop too breathed free in little waves and Stella McCartney preferred her slightly curled tresses to fall on one side.

Handy products to achieve this look:

Smoky eye

The smoky eye had a strong presence in the Spring/Summer fashion weeks and it made its way at the Met Gala too. Celine Dion showed how age is no bar when it comes to sporting this look. Thandie Newton was her sultry best with a smoky eye and sparkling red attire whereas English Actress Liliy James perfectly juxtaposed her ethereal white gown with a Gothic smoky eye.

A bold lip

The celebs donned different shades of bright and dark lips on the red carpet, once again proving the power of a bold lip. American Actress, Singer and Performer Zendaya went for a fiery coral shade that perfectly matched her personality. Rose Byrne awed with a red lip. Kate Bosworth let her delicate features pop with a deep burgundy lip whereas Singer and Actress Haley Bennett felt best to go with a pop of pink.

The less is more look

What can we say, The Met Gala was all about contrasts when it came to beauty trends! Reigning reality queen Kim Kardashian preferred to keep the rest of her face toned down, drawing all the attention to her mascara enhanced eyes. Gwyneth Paltrow looked fresh as a daisy with subtle make-up and baby pink gown whereas model and actress Doutzen Kroes too preferred to keep her face clean barring a strong eyeliner.
