Get The Look: Met Gala Inspired Tutorial

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.

Step One:

Blend your foundation with a damp beauty sponge or foundation brush.

Step Two:

Use cream contour to define your cheeks, jawline, temples and forehead. Blend out with same tools as your foundation.

Step Three:

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.  

Step four:

Define your contoured area with bronzer (By BEAUTY BAY Bronzer in Caramel). A smaller angled brush is perfect for more precise application.

Step Five:

Apply your blush (By BEAUTY BAY Blush in Bloom) on the high points of your cheeks and over the arch of your brows. Use smaller face brushes for more precise placement. 

Step Six:

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. 

Step Seven:

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. 

Step Eight:

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.

Step Nine:

Use a dark blue eye pencil to line your water line and blend it out with the shade Amsterdamn. You can change this step to any colour of your choice.

Step Ten:

Apply your favourite false lashes and then mascara, plus a thin line of the By BEAUTY BAY Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner in Domino over your lashes to blend the false lashes in. 

Step Eleven:

Apply your favourite nude lip combo. 

Step Twelve:

Set everything with the By BEAUTY BAY Set It Don’t Regret It Mattifying Setting Mist and you are ready to go.
