After its cancellation last year, the Met Gala is finally back and better than ever- and we have a whole year to make up for. Unless you’re living under a rock, you will have landed on Met Gala-tok and seen the highlights on Insta, and of course the iconic looks that go along with it. Now it’s time to recreate your own. Our creator of the month @jaro_london has taken inspo from the likes of Kim K and Darren Criss, and is here to show us how it’s done.
Blend your foundation with a damp beauty sponge or foundation brush.
Use cream contour to define your cheeks, jawline, temples and forehead. Blend out with same tools as your foundation.
Use a flat brush to apply a light layer of brightening concealer on the highpoints of your face and eyes. Blend with a wet beauty sponge. Set your face with translucent setting powder.
Bake and define thecontours on your nose, under eyes and underneath of your cheeks, using a dry sponge dipped in translucent setting powder. Leave to bake while you do your eyeshadow. This step is not mandatory.
Define the outer corner and crease with a light brown shadow (Shade Mila from the Nikkie Tutorials X BEAUTY BAY Pressed Pigment Palette). After blending out the lighter shade start slowly adding a deeper shade, 5am from the same palette, until you build up the needed depth.
Use a light nude shade (Basic Trut from the Nikkie Tutorial X BEAUTY BAY Pressed Pigment Palette) to cut your crease and connect the eyeshadow to your nose contour. If you want to make your eyes look bigger, go higher with your crease.
Apply your favourite nude lip combo.
