5 Met Gala Beauty Moments We LovedTRENDINGWe bet as your Instagram feed was flooded with stars on the red carpet Monday night, you wondered – what actually is the Met Gala? Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

The Metropolitan Museum Of Art Costume Institute Benefit (also known as the Met Gala) is a black-tie blow-out that is held every first Monday in May to raise money for the Costume Institute (a.k.a. the fashion department). It’s one of the most glamorous events of the year, mostly because of the elaborate guest list, and there’s no shortage of fashion and beauty inspiration. From blunt bobs to dark lips, celebrities attending this year’s Gala were on point interpreting the Comme des Garçons theme. Read on to check out a few of our favorite beauty looks from the night and how you can achieve at home.

Karlie Kloss

Talk about some serious hair inspiration. We love this chin length blonde haircut that Kloss showed off at the Gala. Keep hair color this light looking fresh by washing strands bi-weekly with a shampoo like the dpHUE Cool Blonde Shampoo.

Lily Collins

From her spider lashes to the defined, berry lip, there’s not much we don’t love about this goth look. Celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles created the lush lash look by applying the LANCÔME Cils Booster XL as a base coat and then 6 coats of the LANCÔME Hypnose Drama Mascara in Black on top and bottom.

Kendall Jenner  

Adding a pop of color like this sultry red is a great way to vamp up any beauty look. The shade is actually a (unavailable) limited edition shade from Estee Lauder called Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Restless so instead, try Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Carnal.


Rihanna’s beauty look proves that coloring outside the lines can be a good thing – especially when it comes to blush. She accentuated her cheeks and eyelids with a dewy mix of both blush and highlighter to create a glam, high-end look.

Adriana Lima

This light, dewy look is a perfect one to imitate during the warm spring months. To re-create the look, start with the Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation. Use the Maybelline New York The 24K Nudes Palette on the eyes to create a soft, neutral finish.
