Last Monday night, Anna Wintour hand-picked each guest for this year’s Met Gala, the theme being “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”.  While everyone is busy obsessing over the gorgeous gowns that paraded down what Man Repeller is calling the “Crème-Brûlée” carpet, we had our eye on the true trend-setting aspects of the attendees of the Met Gala’s ensembles: their beauty looks.

Rachel Goodwin, one of our featured artists and NARS Director for PRO Artistry and Red Carpet in North America, created the makeup look for Emma Stone. She drew inspiration from the metallic depicted in Renaissance paintings, wanting to pick up on the contrast of the gold and the navy paired on the starlet’s gown. For the eye, Goodwin crafted a mixed metal effect, using the NARSissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette, keeping consistent with the gold trend seen on other A-listers, like Kim Kardashian, Gisele, and Joan Smalls. To finish the look, Goodwin selected the Swing Velvet Lip Glide to keep the lips soft and hydrated.

NARS also worked on the five-time BAFTA nominee Kristin Scott Thomas, DBE, who graced the carpet in a stunning blue dress designed by her date and Canadian designer, Erdem.

Celebrity makeup artist Susan Houser centered the look around the “Carnal Carnation” red lip from the Erdem for NARS collection, the colour reminiscent of the Cardinal’s robe. Houser says, “I wanted the lipstick shade to stand out against the soft blue of her incredible Erdem dress, as well as her feminine eyes and luminous skin.”

While the costumes may seem too grand to wear in real life, we definitely can take note from these NARS experts when we want to take our beauty looks to a whole new heavenly level.
