The Maybelline spokeswoman's Versace gown was made to represent stained glass and her glam team took it one step further with a shimmery new Soda Pop pallette and all Maybelline products.
Face: Begin by priming the skin with Master Prime Hydrate + Smooth. Once the face is primed, apply Fit Me! Dewey + Smooth foundation all over the face with a buffing brush. Then, apply Fit Me! Concealer in light, under the eye and blend outwards to lighten up the area.
Contour/Cheeks: Contour the forehead and cheekbones with the dark side of the Master Contour V Shape Duo in light, then set the contour with Face Studio Master Contour Palette. Next, use Fit Me! Blush in Nude on the apples of the cheeks for a beautiful flushed look. For a golden glow, highlight the inner corner, brow bone, nose and cheekbones using Master Chrome Highlighter in Molten Gold. Lastly, set the entire face with multiple spritz of Master Fix Setting Spray to last all night.
Eyes: Using the brand new Soda Pop Eyeshadow Palette, (launching September 2018) apply the shade Grape Pop in the crease, then use the same brush and blend in the shade Blue Raspberry to add even more depth. Mix the shades Cherry on Top and Blue Raspberry on the lid to create a base and blend out into the crease. Next, take a clean brush and press Cherry Cola onto the lid for a pop of color. Finally, use a pencil brush to apply Blue Raspberry on lower lash line and blend out any harsh edges. For the liner, mix Master Precise Ink Liquid Eyeliner in the shades Stellar Sand and Solar Gold and draw a tapering line below the lid, then finish it off with Lasting Drama Lightliner in White Luster in the waterline. Finally, apply everyone’s favorite, Falsies Volum Express Mascara on top lashes only.
Lips: Use Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liner in Dusty Rose to fill in the entire lip for lasting color. Then, finalize the lip look by applying Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes in Purely Nude over the center of the lips.

Amal Clooney – makeup by Charlotte Tilbury
For her return to the Met Gala, the human rights attorney kept both her makeup and look bright. Wearing an ensemble by Richard Quinn, George Clooney’s leading lady’s glam was the perfect addition. The goal…a dazzling divine statement lip and flawless complexion.
Face: Begin by cleansing skin with the Multi-Miracle Glow. Followed by the Goddess Skin Clay Mask then Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask for red carpet-ready skin in just 15 minutes! Next apply Charlotte’s Magic Cream to moisturize and create the perfect canvas. Add the Wonderglow primer to give the skin a glowing, lit-from-within base.
Follow that step by applying the Light Wonder Foundation all over the face, then dot the Hollywood Flawless Filter along the cheekbones and high points of the face to create a superstar lit Hollywood glow.
To polish the look Airbrush Flawless Finish powder in shades and then add her Filmstar Bronze & Glow, and Pretty Youth Glow Filter in Pretty Fresh to the cheeks to lightly contour and add a pop of pink to round out the look.
Eyes: To add subtle definition and structure to the face, use the Brow Lift to softly fill in and brush up your brows. Next, to create the eye look, apply the Eyes to Mesmerise in Marie Antoinette along the lids as a base, followed by the transparent sparkle POP shade from her NEW Bigger Brighter Eyes palette in Exagger-Eyes to widen and brighten their appearance.
To finish, add the PRIME shade, a warm, eye-brightening ivory-cream, followed by a flash of the Hollywood Beauty Light Wand on the cheekbones. To create an elongating, soft feline flick, use The Classic eyeliner pencil in Audrey along the lash line. Round out the look by creating a Hollywood lash effect that will last all night, by curling the lashes using the Life Changing Lashes eyelash curler, followed by an application of the Legendary Lashes Volume 2 mascara to both the top and bottom lashes.
Lips: To create a deeply divine lip, outline with the NEW Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Kiss ‘N’ Tell to cheat fuller, wider-looking lips with a flawless, long-lasting finish. Apply a mix of the Hollywood Lips matte liquid lipstick in Screen Siren and Hollywood Lips matte liquid lipstick in Walk of Fame. Then applied her NEW Collagen Lip Bath in Refresh Rose (Launching 5/31), creating a gorgeous fuller-looking, plump effect on the lips and the most sumptuous looking pout.

Hailey Baldwin – makeup by Denika Bedrossian for Laura Mercier
Hailey was one of the few celebrities to take a more angelic approach. The supermodel’s ice blue Tommy Hilfiger gown and soft pink hair called for gentle rose tones. Denika created a look that was “angelic with a modern twist, soft, innocent and sweet.”
Face: To prep the skin and make sure the makeup stays in place all night, begin with Foundation Primer – Radiance. Next, use the Flawless Fusion Ultra – Longwear Foundation in Macadamia and Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer in Shade 2C to create a fresh, natural complexion.
To buff in the foundation and concealer, use a blending blush and follow with Translucent Loose Setting Powder, to set the look by applying it to the T-Zone and around the nose with a velour puff.
To define your features, brush on Face Illuminator in Indiscretion and Seduction along with Matte Bronzing Powder in Soleil 2 to contour and bronze the face using the Angled Cheek Contour brush.
Eyes: To create a wet, bronzed eye use the Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Amethyst and Cocoa. Apply both shades on the eyelid and smoke around the bottom lash line for a sultry look. For added drama, deepen the look using the Truffle shade from the Eye Art Artist’s Palette.
