It Happened At The Met Gala – 4 Makeup Trends You Might Or Might Not Know About

Although this year’s story for the Met Gala was “Fashion In An Age Of Technology”, most celebrities opted out from wearing heavy makeup and chose instead to accentuate one feature while leaving everything else minimal. The “dark lip” made quite a show, bright eyeshadow brought drama, sun kissed faces made us envious and metallic eyeshadow proved to be a rare treasure.

Celebrities like Kate Bosworth, Jemima Kirke, Zoey Deutch, Ellie Bamber or Eva Chen went for bright colours on the eyes. Smokey or just on the upper lid, these colours can make eye colour pop out, sometimes helping hidden tones come out to light. A touch of colour is a great way to experiment with makeup, it is fun and always brings surprises.

A bronzy makeup can be tricky to achieve, however, if you do succeed to get the right shades for your skin tone and hair colour, this type of makeup can become your best friend. Romeo Strijd, Margot Robbie and Irina Shayk were among the celebrities wearing the sun kissed makeup.

Dark lips were a hit for this Met Gala edition, a great addition (or even replacement) next to red and nude. Celebrities like Rachel McAdams, Miranda Kerr, Hailee Seinfeld, Taylor Swift and Poppy Delevigne went for burgundy tones while Katty Perry decided for something much darker.

Metallic eyeshadow is a  courageous choice, although considering the amount of metallic gowns present at the Met Gala, you would think that metallic makeup should be a common choice. Well, it wasn’t, however, Kristen Stewart went deep in it and I love it. Rita Ora and Olivia Wilde are other two courageous celebrity who chose to wear a touch of metallic eyeshadow for The Met Gala – ” Fashion In An Age Of Technology”. Well done girls!
