Get The Look: Kim Kardashian, Lily Aldridge and Cher
I am still swooning over some of the interpretations on the Met Gala theme just a few night ago. The theme "China: Through The Looking Glass" had attendees looking fabulous and the the below three celebrities were visual eye catchers!
WHO: KIM KARDASHIAN
MAKEUP BY: Mario Dedivanovic for MARC JACOBS BEAUTY
INSPIRATION: To match the nude elegance of the Peter Dundas for Roberto Cavalli dress, Mario wanted Kim’s skin to mimic the glowing and simplistic palette of the dress and keep it monochromatic. “We wanted to stay true to Kim’s classic look and enhance her natural beauty and golden, glowy skin.”
TIPS/TECHNIQUE: First, Mario created a perfect canvas and achieved a dewy glow on Kim’s face by mixing a medium and dark shade of the Genius Gel SuperCharged Oil-Free Foundation all over the face.
Since Kim’s hair was tightly pulled back, Mario wanted enhance her natural features without too much color. Under the eyes, the Marc Jacobs Beauty Re(Marc)able Full Cover Concealer was applied to, while the Shameless Bold Blush in Shameless was applied to the apple of the cheeks to give a slightly peachy hue.
To achieve a contoured look, Mario used the #Instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder in Hi Fi Filter 60 in the hollows of the cheeks, around the hair and jawlines and on the sides of the nose.
On the eyes, Mario maintained the nude and crystal color palette by applying a wash across the entire lid of the silvery Twinkle Pop Eye Stick in Frannie, followed by layers of the matte and shimmery peach tones in the Style Eye Con No. 7 Palette in The Dreamer to set it and give it a more nude-based tone. In the creases of her eye, Mario used a dark brown shade from the palette very lightly, and then took the golden Twinkle Eye Pop Color Stick in Au Revoir to the brow bone and lower lash line of the eyes to add some sultry sparkle.
To finish of the eyes, Mario applied the Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer in a very thin line on the upper lash line, followed by a very slight wing to stay aligned with the MET Ball theme, and added a final hint of the golden sparkle to the inner corners of the eyes using the Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Mari(Gold) to enhance the natural gold in her eyes.
And finally, on the lips, Mario achieved Kim’s go-to nude lip look with a warm nude tone of the New Nudes Sheer Lip Gel in Anais.

WHO: LILY ALDRIDGE
MAKEUP BY: Quinn Murphy for MARC JACOBS BEAUTY
INSPIRATION: “Working with Lily for this look was definitely a piecemeal type process. I originally sent Lily a Grace Kelly image because I loved it so much. I thought we were going for a little bit more classic look to complement her Carolinna Herrara dress but then at the last minute we decided to have a major moment at the Met Ball and do a dramatic dark lip and a bold brow. I wanted to make sure the base was very neutral and make it all about a strong pout and brow, the rest of the look was just the background singer to support it.”
TIPS/TECHNIQUE: It was very important to make sure the base was very neutral and keep the focus on the lips and brows. Quinn applied the Marc Jacobs Beauty Genius Gel Supercharged Foundation in two different shades with a damp sponge for her skin. The darker shade was applied around the edges of her face and the lighter shade was used for the rest.
Quinn highlighted her features with the #Instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder, using the darker shade in the hollows of her cheeks and forehead temples. He then lightly swiped the Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless Bold Blush in Shamless to the apples of her cheeks.
To keep the lip super matte – he took the Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème in Blow 210 and continuously blotted her lips with a tissue, then reapplied the lipstick 3x. He then added the color Magenta 224 just in the center of her lips to give it a unique pop.
To fill in her brows, Quinn used the Brow Wow Defining Longwear Pencil and used a lot of the Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara to accentuate her lashes. As final touches, he used a Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer in Taboo 310 on her eyelids to achieve a shiny glossy and almost wet look and set it all with the Marc Jacobs Beauty Perfection Powder – Featherweight Finish.
DRESS: Carolinna Herrara
MAKEUP BY: Francesca Tolot for MARC JACOBS BEAUTY
INSPIRATION: To complement her custom Marc Jacobs dress, Francesca Tolot went for a soft glam look, focusing the drama on Cher’s eyes and keeping everything else simple and fresh.
TIPS/TECHNIQUE: To create the look of dewy-skin, Francesca used the Marc Jacobs Beauty Genius Gel Super–Charged Oil–Free Foundation in 14 Ivory Medium and Perfection Powder - Featherweight Foundation in 120 Ivory as the base.
For glowing cheeks, she applied a faint hint of the Shameless Bold Blush in 202 Naughty.
To create a stunning smokey eye, Francesca used the Style Eye-Con Plush Shadow The Starlet 204 and The Rebel 206 and layered different shades of browns, golds and purples and to give the eye a deeper dimension. Francesca applied several coats of the Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara to complete the eye look.
For the lips, Francesca went with a beautiful neutral pout starting with the(P)outliner Longwear Lip Pencil in Honey(bun) 302 and filling in her lips with it. To finish, she topped off her lips with theMarc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer in 314 Moonglow, a beautiful soft pink nude.
