Met Gala 2021 gave us some head-turning fashion that we will talk about for months. The theme of this year’s event was “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.” It inspired the celebrities in attendance to adorn creative outfits, many with a historical significance. While there were numerous bold fashion looks, such as Kim Kardashian’s all-black masked outfit, these are clothes that we cannot wear out in our everyday lives. The makeup, however, is something that we can all take inspiration from. So, here are some of the iconic makeup looks from this year’s Met Gala that you can easily recreate at home!
Lil Nas X’s Triangular Gold Eyeliner
Lil Nas X’s metallic outfit shined bright at the Met Gala carpet, but our eyes were on the subtle makeup details. The triangular gold eyeliner accenting the outer corner of the eye is such a picture-perfect look for the upcoming festive season. Plus, it is super easy to DIY with any metallic eyeliner that you own. This is a statement look that takes seconds!
Billie Eilish’s Soft Glam Look
If subtle and dreamy is the kind of makeup you like, you should replicate Billie Eilish’s makeup look for your next public appearance! Rosy pink lips, a slight sheen on the eyes, and winged eyeliner will be your best friends. Also, don’t forget to add oodles of blush on your cheeks. Billie Eilish truly mesmerized the crowds with this soft and glamorous look, and it will look stunning on you too!
Rihanna’s Dark Lips
Rihanna walked into the Met Gala with dark crimson lips and smokey eyes. This dark and dramatic makeup look complemented her black ensemble perfectly. You can wear this look to any evening event with a good dusting of highlighter on your cheekbones. It will pair beautifully with a little black dress or a shimmery evening gown.
Yara Shahidi’s Natural Glam
Yara Shahidi looked divine at the Met Gala in her embellished skin-toned outfit. She wore neutral makeup to match the gown with a subtle lip shade and a wash of brown on the lids. Her flawless skin had a sheen to it.
To recreate this look, all you need is a dewy foundation, a neutral lip shade close to your lips’ natural color, and brown eyeshadow. This makeup is suitable for both day and night and can elevate any outfit.
Gigi Hadid’s Wash of Blue
Gigi Hadid’s eye makeup was truly a head-turner at this year’s Met Gala. She paired a bold winged eyeliner with a sky blue eyeshadow for a gorgeous statement look. The rest of the makeup was simple, with neutral lips to make the eyes pop even more. This look is perfect when you want to stand out without using dark colors.
