Met Gala 2017 Best Beauty Looks: Lupita Nyong’o, Lily Collins, Kim Kardashian, More

All eyes may have been on the fashion during the Met Gala 2017 (hello, Claire Danes!), but we can’t stop obsessing over the boldest beauty looks on the red carpet. To complement the night’s theme, “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between,” celebs rocked major hair and makeup transformations worthy of the Oscars of fashion. Keep reading to find just how the pros created the standout styles!


“With Lupita wearing a Prada gown in a bold peach color with florals details for the Met Gala, I wanted to play on the dress’s embellishments without making the makeup too delicate or lady-like,” makeup artist Nick Barose says. “There’s a certain roughness and spontaneity to the bold color strokes, so I created smudges on the eyes using many different colors while keeping the rest of the face polished to balance out the look.”

What he used:Lancôme Drama Liqui-Pencils ($23 each) in Cuivre, Or Billiant, Brique, Cote D’Azure, and Ampoulé; Lancôme Color Design Eye Shadows ($20) in Miss Sweetheart D, Sapphire Lace, A Touch of Coral, All That Shimmers, and Exhibition

Kim Kardashian’s Radiant Skin

“Kim wore a really clean dress, simple and white and beautiful, and she wanted to feel and look like herself,” says makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic. “Rei Kawakubo does a lot of clean skin on the runway, and I was inspired by that.”

What he used:Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask ($32), Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate ($46) (on her cheekbones), Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado ($29), and Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream SPF 30 ($48)

Lily Collin’s Lengthy Lashes

“Gregory Russell gave Lily a super chic blunt bob with mini bangs, which instantly made me think of the ultimate silent screen star, Louise Brooks,” says celeb makeup artist Fiona Stiles. “I piled on the Lancôme Cils Booster XL as a base coat for the lashes and then did six coats of the Hypnose Drama Mascara on top and bottom for bigger than life lashes.”

What she used:Lancôme Cils Booster XL ($26), Lancôme Hypnose Drama Mascara in Black ($27.50)

Janelle Monae’s Red Lip

“We know Janelle loves a bold lip, and tonight was the night to really rock her original style,” says makeup artist Jessica Smalls. “I started by applying Outlast All Day Custom Reds with a brush to really perfect and line her lips, followed by a few swipes of product to create that bold look.”

What she used:CoverGirl Outlast All-Day Custom Reds Lip Color in You’re on Fire ($9)

Lily-Rose Depp’s Low Chignon

“[After rough-drying her hair and curling thick sections,] I pulled her hair into a low ponytail while still keeping it soft enough to frame the face. This was secured with an elastic, then shaped into a loosely styled chignon, like the camellia corsage on the dress,” says hairstylist Johnnie Sapong. “To finish the look, I misted Leonor Greyl Laque Souple to hold while leaving the hair still so soft.”
