MET Gala 2015 Red Carpet Beauty Get The Look

It’s safe to say that the Red Carpet got rocked at the MET Gala, which took place Monday May 4 in NYC. Celebs offered up varying interpretations, via dramatic and glamour eveningwear, inspired by the Met Gala's “China: Through The Looking Glass theme.” In a TME exclusive, we’ve got the looks from NARS, L’Oréal and Alterna for mega celebs like Katie Holmes, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Alexa Chung, Dakota Johnson and many more! 

FKA Twigs - Makeup by Uzo, NARS International Lead Makeup Stylist

Beauty Inspiration: "It’s about FKA Twigs herself, the young ingénue who is complex and edgy, but can still morph her persona into minimalist chic. The beauty look is understated sophistication with a polished complexion, subtle shading and a bold groomed brow."

Key NARS products used: All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, NARS Christopher Kane Silent Nude Blush, NARS Christopher Kane Nucleus Lip Gloss

 Lady Gaga - Makeup by Sarah Tanno for NARS Cosmetics

Beauty Inspiration: "I was really inspired by the texture and detail in Alex's designs. I wanted Gaga to look like a walking editorial out of a magazine. The Met Gala is the one event where you can really push the boundaries, so I decided to do something strong that fit this year’s theme."

Key NARS products used: Himalia Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow, Violet Atom Illuminating Multiple, Greta Audacious Lipstick

Alexa Chung - Makeup by Tamah K. for NARS Cosmetics

Beauty Inspiration: "The inspiration was Wong Kar-wai’s movie ‘In the Mood for Love.' We decided to go in the vein of 1960s China and play up the ethnicity of Alexa’s features as she is part Chinese."

Key NARS products used:  All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, Brigitte Audacious Lipstick

 Claire Danes - Makeup by Matin for NARS Cosmetics

Beauty Inspiration: "I was looking at Chinese illustrations from the 20s and loved the look of a maroon wash on the eyes and cheeks and stained dark cherry or oxblood red on the lips. I wanted to use a version of that which was suitable on the red carpet."

Key NARS products used: Desdemona Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow, Ingrid Audacious Lipstick, Audacious Mascara (NEW for Fall 2015)

Fei Fei Sun - Makeup by Maki Ryoke for NARS Cosmetics
Beauty Inspiration: "The inspiration for the look was Babe Paley traveling to China in the 30s. The eyeliner really had to be created for Fei Fei’s face; it was quite thick to enhance her eyes. The Babe Paley inspiration came through in the lipstick - it complemented Fei Fei’s Asian skin tone and really popped."

Key NARS products used: Carmen Audacious Lipstick, Carpates Eyeliner Stylo

 Dakota Johnson - Makeup by Patti Dubroff for NARS Cosmetics

Beauty Inspiration: "I was inspired by Dakota’s sparkly, high-shine dress which was short and flirty. I made her beauty look all about gorgeous, lush skin and added a little drama to her eyes for effect."

Key NARS products used:  Vanessa Audacious Lipstick | Black Valley Eye Paint, Audacious Mascara (NEW for Fall 2015) 

 Reese Witherspoon - Makeup by Molly Stern for NARS Cosmetics

Beauty Inspiration: "The look was modern and crisp. I wanted Reese to have a super clean, bright complexion with bold features, so I paired intensified brows with shadowed liner, which framed Reese’s gorgeous blue eyes and allowed her glowing skin to shine."

Key NARS products used: All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, Fervor Dual-Intensity Blush, Anita Audacious Lipstick, Audacious Mascara (NEW for Fall 2015)

Emily Blunt - Makeup by Jenn Streicher for NARS Cosmetics

Beauty Inspiration: "When I saw the dress I knew I wanted to stay classic as Emily is such an archetypal beauty and her gown embodied just that with its minimalistic silhouette yet highly embellished design. Keeping her skin fair and really playing up her lips instead of her eyes."

Key NARS products used: All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, Vera Audacious Lipstick

All NARS products, except where noted, are available online at NARS and NARS boutiques.

Beyoncé - Makeup Artist: L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Makeup Artist, Sir John 

Beauty Inspiration: “I was inspired when I saw Beyoncé with all of her hair off her face. It automatically gave her an awakened, child-like look that I wanted to enhance with a bit of an anime vibe. I also wanted to play up her makeup since her Givenchy gown was long, sheer and covered in jewels,” shared Sir John.

Step 1: Prep face with L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation focusing on keeping the T-zone matte. Sir John worked to play up her luminous skin tone and over-exaggerate a fresh, youthful appearance
Step 2: To create contrast, he mixed L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Golden and Rose (Available July 2015) and applied to the cheeks. To further sculpt the cheek and add dimension, he applied L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Powder, which also helps absorb light
Step 3: Sir John made Beyoncé’s tan skin really pop by directly contrast with a pastel mint lid. He created a mod eye by applying a mix of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Endless Sea and Infinite Sky
Step 4: For a “deer in the headlights” look, Sir John applied L’Oréal Paris The Super Slim Liner by Infallible to the top lid and into the lash line. He purposely kept the bottom lash line clean with no liner and mascara to further enhance the wide eye finish
Step 5: To complete the look, he added tons of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara so eyes popped, and added a touch of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Lip Color in Neverending Nutmeg to simply and subtly enhances the shape of lips

Karlie Kloss - Makeup Artist: L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Makeup Artist, Sir John 

Beauty Inspiration: Sir John was inspired by the elongated silhouette of Karlie’s Versace dress, which lead to the decision of creating an enhanced summery, beachy look with a fresh, modern, evening twist.

Step 1: Sir John prepped skin with the super-rich L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Volume Filler Re-Volumizing Daily Moisturizer to create a flawless, moisturized base 
Step 2: Then he used L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Ice (Available July 2015) for a glowing, luminous complexion
Step 3: Next, he blended L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Golden (Available July 2015) to sculpt and define Karlie’s cheekbones
Step 4: Following the silhouette of Karlie’s dress, Sir John opted for a fresh eye look and elongated the eye applying L’Oréal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner by Infallible in Green Ivy to the top of the eyelid. By starting the liner at the middle of the eye and drawing under the lash line, the eye appears more open
Step 5: To create maximum impact, Sir John added L’Oréal Paris Infallible Smokissime Powder Eyeliner Pen in Black to the lash line, followed by the several layers of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara for extra intensity
Step 6: To complete the look and create a super nude lip, Sir John applied L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Lip Color in Everlasting Caramel

Karlie Kloss (Hair) - Makeup Artist: L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Hairstylist, Mara Roszak  

Beauty Inspiration: “Karlie wore a gorgeous Versace gown, which automatically feels a little sexy. I really wanted her hair to be moveable and soft, so we went for a tousled, glamorous look,” shared Mara.

Step 1: To start, Mara applied L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out HeatSpray to damp hair
Step 2: Next, she blew out hair starting at the front and using a round brush around the face and sides, rough drying the back
Step 3: Then, Mara wrapped random sections of hair around a 1 ¼ curling iron, keeping the ends out for smooth and soft waves
Step 4:  She sprayed the hair with L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold to lock the look in place and then brushed out the hair a bit to soften the wave
Step 5: Next, she applied a few spritzes of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare High Lift Creation Spray for more body and hold
Step 6: Last, Mara sprayed more L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold all over hair to complete the look

Carey Mulligan (Hair) - L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Hairstylist, Mara Roszak  

Beauty Inspiration: “Carey wore this gorgeous Balenciaga gown with a stunning collar so, because of the high neck, we wanted to put the hair up. I love this look – it’s ethereal with a slightly modern edge that still feels effortless,” shared Mara

Step 1: Mara started by spraying the entire head with L’Oreal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse, then rough dried hair with a blow dryer
Step 2: Next, she pin curled the sections around Carey’s face to give extra height to the look
Step 3: Mara split the back of the hair into three sections, fastening each section into a pony tail and then wrapping into individual buns, locking in with L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold
Step 4: Next, she let out the front pieces and touched them up with a curling iron before pinning them to the back of the hair
Step 5: With a tiny bit of L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold on her fingertips, Mara loosened the front pieces for added softness around the face

Lily Collins (Hair) - L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Hairstylist, Mara Roszak  

Beauty Inspiration: “Lily wore classic Chanel. We’ve already done so much with her short haircut, so for this look we really wanted a more timeless, simple look.”

Step 1: Mara trimmed a few pieces of Lily’s hair up front to give a shorter bang look
Step 2: Next, she used a ½ wide curling iron to curl random pieces of hair
Step 3: Then, Mara applied a minimal amount of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel as a shield to keep hair in place
Step 4: She sprayed L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold onto her hands and pieced out bangs using her fingertips
Step 5: To finish the look, Mara turned to L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray, which smoothed hair and locked in the style

Julianne Moore - Makeup Artist: Elaine Offers for L’Oréal Paris

Beauty Inspiration: “Julianne wore a gorgeous black Riccardo Tisci gown with jet beading and corseted accents.  She debuted a shorter hairstyle and we used her signature makeup color palette of taupes and plums, amping it up a bit for the occasion,” shared Elaine.

Step 1: Elaine prepped skin with L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Volume Filler Daily Volumizing Moisturizer
Step 2: She then blended L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation with Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer for a combination of coverage and luminosity
Step 3: To brighten up the face, Elaine dotted her go-to L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift CC Cream under the eyes, down the center of the nose and across the top lip
Step 4: Next, she penciled in brows using L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Designer in Blonde, and the upper lashlines with Infallible Smokissime Eyeliner in Brown Smoke
Step 5: Elaine defined eyes with a selection of rich plum and chocolate hues from the NEW L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude Smokey, adding Infallible Silkissime Highlighter to the waterlines to open up the eyes
Step 6: Next, she finished off the eyes with coats of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara
Step 7: Last, Elaine used both L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Lip Colour in Raisin Revival and Mesmerizing Merlot to concoct Julianne’s signature plum lip look

Jennifer Lopez - Makeup Artist: Mary Phillips for L’Oréal Paris

Beauty Inspiration: “All I have to say is RED DRAGON! The hair is slicked back and very fashion forward in its ‘finish’ and texture, but very tasteful. The makeup really ties in the red dragon theme, but in a very subtle way. She has that classic JLO skin, we kept the glow, the tone- and all of those elements that people love, but I would definitely call this glow a ‘special occasion’ glow. You're going to see a lot of reds, oranges, peaches, but in a very diffused blown out way. We play a lot with merging her eye color with her cheek color, which is Eastern Asian-inspired, and pays a bit of a homage to the disco 70's era. Her lips are a golden coral and her eyes have a very thin black liquid liner line on the upper lash only. You might notice an overall golden finish to her skin, which is because I dusted that everywhere as a finishing touch to play up the crystals in her breathtaking red Versace gown. She almost looks ethereal. She floated in with this dress,” shared Mary.

Step 1: To start, Mary applied L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur, which is great for filling in the depths of fine lines and allowed foundation to glide on with ease
Step 2: Mary used L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray before, during and after makeup. She explained that it gives skin the perfect finish making it her skin-must
Step 3: Next, she applied L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Foundation in Classic Tan all over the face
Step 4: To brighten and plump in all the right ways, Mary added two-in-one L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Serum Absolute Concealer
Step 5: To create the signature bronzed glow and for a bit of sheen, Mary applied Armani Sun Fabric Sheer Bronzer
Step 6:  Mixing Lancôme Limited Edition Blush Subtil Crème in Coral Alize, Brise Rosee, and Rouge Mistral and L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Classic Wine created a super slick balmy blush, which Mary patted all along the temples, tops of the cheek bone and into the eye lids. She also dabbed the mixture at the very center of her mouth and blended outwards, which she described as almost a faint "popsicle mouth” look
Step 7: For the eyes, Mary applied L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Intenza Mascara in Black, which fanned lashes out and added thickness primarily to their tail ends
Step 8: For bold color and precise, long-lasting application in one stroke, Mary applied L’Oréal Paris The Super Slim Liner by Infallible
Step 9: Mary then applied L'Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Brow Plumper in Transparent, which she credits as having the perfect hold
Step 10: To complete the look, she added a shiny punch of a subtle color using L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Le Gloss in Peach Fuzz -- the luster and sparkle tied the look together to completion

All products are available at online at L’Oréal Paris and mass and drugstores nationwide.

Gabrielle Union – Got2b Celebrity Hairstylist, Larry Sims

Beauty Inspiration: “We wanted to give her something super fresh, with a rock star vibe at the same time” says Sims. He adds, “I gave her a razored bob cut that is shorter in the back with elongated tips in the front, and layered throughout.”

Step 1: Once Larry finished cutting Gabrielle’s hair, he went section by section starting at the nape of the neck and sprayed Got2b Guardian Angel Flat Iron Balm to protect hair from heat styling
Step 2: Next, Larry set his blow dryer to cold on the highest setting to give her strands a wispy and voluminous finish
Step 3: He then took Got2b Playful Crème Pomade, rubbed it into his palms and ran the product through her hair for added texture
Step 6: Next, he used a few drops of Got2b Glossy Anti-frizz Shine Serum for additional shine and frizz control, and finished with Got2b Mind Blowing Fast Dry Hairspray to set the look

Beauty Inspiration: For the 2015 MET Gala, Katie Holmes paid homage to Chinese style with an elaborate, navy, Zac Posen dress embroidered with Asian-inspired clouds and side cut-outs.

Step 2: Blow dry using a medium-sized YS Park round brush, keeping the front and side pieces straight and the back of the hair beveled inward
Step 3: Run a 1 ½ inch Harry Josh flatiron through hair, from root to tip
