NARS and Stars On The Red Carpet At The 2014 Met Ball Get The Look Exclusive

The Met Gala -- also known as The Met Ball, Fashion Prom, or this year, Cinco de Met Ball took place on the evening on May 5th at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. And, as always, the stars were shining brightly for this annual fundraiser that benefits the Met's Costume Institute. The Met Ball also serves as an opening celebration for The Met’s annual fashion exhibit, which features designer Charles James in a new show titled “Beyond Fashion”. Everyone from Sarah Jessica Parker to Blake Lively and Solange Knowles to Jessica Paré was in attendance. And The Makeup Examiner has the exclusive Get The Look for these gorgeous women!

Kirsten Dunst - NARS worked with Celebrity Makeup Artist Jeanine Lobell to create the beauty look for Kirsten Dunst. Beauty Inspiration:” Kirsten’s look featured elements of Star Wars and the idea of intergalactic travel with a twenties inspired hairstyle. The makeup tied all of these concepts together.” Key NARS products used:Sycorax Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow (New for summer) | Interstellar Eye Paint | Luxembourg Satin Lip Pencil

Blake Lively - NARS worked with Celebrity Makeup Artist Elaine Offers to create the beauty look for Blake Lively. Beauty Inspiration: “This look is very classic but very glamorous. We wanted to nod to Charles James’ aesthetic by creating a look reminiscent of vintage Hollywood but modernize it with a muted red lip.” Key NARS products used: Baalbek Eye Paint | Subra Dual Intensity Eyeshadow (new for Summer 2014) | Salsa Lip Liner Pencil

Jessica Paré - NARS worked with Celebrity Makeup Artist Mai Quynh to create the beauty look for Jessica Paré. Beauty Inspiration: “I wanted this look to be very glamorous but not too traditional which is why we opted for a bright lip; it's the first time we've gone bold for the red carpet!. To keep the look fresh and modern I decided to forego eyeliner and instead create a wash of metallic on the eyes.” Key NARS products used: Anguilla Matte Multiple | Himalia Dual Intensity Eyeshadow (new for Summer 2014) | Yu Satin Lip Pencil

Karen Elson - NARS Lead Makeup Stylist Jenny Smith created the beauty look for Karen Elson. Beauty Inspiration: "This is timeless beauty and reflects the way women of the 1950's used small details in their application for spectacular enhancement of their features. We opted for a reddish-orange lip and created the tiniest flick of eyeliner for subtle definition." Key NARS products used:Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil | Radiant Cream Compact Foundation in Siberia | Cruella Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

Solange Knowles - NARS worked with Celebrity Makeup Artist Benjamin Puckey to create the beauty look for Solange Knowles. Beauty Inspiration: After looking at her dress, we decided that the focus should be her eyes. We imagined this dark and smokey-bronzed look with a lot of mascara. Glowing cheeks and a nude lip really helped to intensify the dramatic effect. Key NARS products used: Subra Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow (New for Summer 2014) | Siam Matte Multiple | Isola Bella Satin Lip Pencil

Sarah Jessica Parker - NARS worked with Celebrity Makeup Artist Leslie Lopez to create the beauty look for Sarah Jessica Parker. Beauty Inspiration: “Her makeup look is a modern version of something we’d see from the 1950s. Oscar de la Renta created her dress with Charles James in mind so I created a very distinct shape for the eye that was popular during that era.” Key NARS products used:Giove Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow (New for Summer 2014) | Via Veneto Larger Than Life Eyeliner | Adelaïde Illuminator

All products, except where noted, are available at NARS.
