Ok so let's talk Met Gala!
Whilst there were quite a few controversial looks, we loved the makeup & wanted to highlight our top 5 looks at Runway Room HQ.
5. Rihanna - We are totally crushing over her 1920's vibe with mulberry tones!
To create Rihanna's look, start by prepping skin with Runway Room's Mattifying Primer over the entire face for makeup that lasts all night. Then apply Mineral Stick Foundation to desired areas for complexion perfection. This vegan friendly foundation will allow you to build coverage & double up as a concealer. Lightly dust Runway Room's Setting Powder to set the foundation; this will ensure your base will go all night & also provide a smooth finish thanks to its triple milled formula. Let's talk cheeks - use our famous Glow Palette to add warmth, blush & enhance cheekbones. Sweep Peach Punch blush on the cheekbones & blend into temples, this will create a lifted effect. Then finish your base with a subtle contour with bronzer & highlight on the high points of the face to capture the light.
For Rihannas eyes, Mineral Eye Palette Founders Fav is a must have! This palette will suit virtually any eye colour & make them pop. Style with Luxe lash enhancement & finish this look with Gypsy lipstick.
4. JLO - I mean this woman can do no wrong! One thing is for sure - glowy skin is in & that is what we do best!
Start with a Cream Concealer in Pink Flesh to neutralise any dark circles followed by Face Base foundation for that illuminating glow. Add Peach Punch Mineral Stick to apples of the checks & blend up followed by ICE cream Mineral stick to high points of the face including; cheekbones, bridge of the nose, cupids bow & above the arch or brows for that youthful look. Both Peach Punch & Ice cream sticks have a gorgeous pearly finish which will make you photo ready every time. For the eyes, sweep Dreamtime Eyeshadow over the entire eye lid & blend up & out into the socket. Apply the same colour to the lower lash line for that blown out smokey look. To finish the eyes, apply a generous coat of Power Lash mascara to the top & bottom lashes. For lips - pat Girl Boss lipstick for that worn in look.
3. Mary J Blige - this goddess just gets better with age!
For that flawless finish, commence your base with Face base foundation for an even complexion. To contour, use Mineral Stick foundation in the natural hollow areas of the face including: under the cheek bones, hair line, temples & nose. Lightly powder through the t-zone using Runway Rooms Skin Veil. This pressed translucent powder will maintain your flawless base & smooth out any unwanted texture - that's right, it's like having your own personal filter in your makeup bag!
Sandstorm Eyeshadow Palette is what you want to recreate this sexy number. The combination of both matte & pearly shadows will allow you to create a wardrobe of different eye looks. Try wetting your eye brush & dip into Black Sands eyeshadow to create eye definition on the top & lower lash line. Load the lashes with multiple coats of Power Lash to add a little extra drama. For 3D lips, apply a lip liner that is 2-3 shades deeper than Ballerina or Librarian lipstick & blend together for that perfect 90's lip.
2. Megan Fox - Just when her look couldn't get any better from the VMA's, Megan pulls this number on us - lady in red indeed!
Create Megan's base by applying Mattifying Primer all over the entire face to prep your skin. Pat Pink Flesh on the eye lid & inner half of the under eye area to highlight & brighten. Next, buff Mineral Stick foundation for an even complexion over the entire face & then set your base with Skin Veil for that perfect semi-matte finish. For killer cheekbones, apply Contour Powder under the cheekbones to define & sculpt the cheeks, followed by Peach Punch on the cheekbones to enhance them further. On the eyes, sweep Frostbite Eye Dust (fair skin tones) or Skinny Latte (warm skin tones) on the entire eye lid & blend up & out towards the brow bone. Apply your favourite gel or liquid liner to the top lash line, starting from the outer corner & graduate to a very fine point towards the inner corner of the eye. This technique will elongate to create & an uplifted almond look. For that feline wide-eye effect, try applying White eye definer in the lower waterline & finish with a generous coat of Power lash Mascara. Wait, we are not finished! Add volume to the outer corner lashes using Lucky Lash Enhancement. It wouldn't be right if we didn't finish with that perfect red lip - Try using CEO or Supermodel lipstick!
1. Kendall Jenner - Well, it was quite obvious that Kendall stole the show in Givenchy - but her makeup was on point & is the reason she is our top pick!
Start by applying Face Base foundation over the entire face using Face Wand for a sheer natural finish. Working in circular motions will allow you to buff foundation into the skin for that ultra smooth finish. Then set foundation using Skin Veil in the T-zone to assist in controlling any shine or sweat, remember this will also assist in refining any texture on the skin. Add warmth to the face by applying Summer Kiss bronzer under the cheek bones & with whatever is left on your brush, sweep this along the forehead towards the hairline for that sun-kissed look. Don't put the bronzer away as this will be used for the eyes! Apply Peach Punch Mineral Stick cream to the apples of the cheeks & sweep up into cheekbones. Now time for the bronzer again. This time, using a fluffy eye blending brush, apply Summer Kiss bronzer in the socket of the eye & blend up & out. This will not only define the eyes, it will also add warmth to the eyes. Using a smaller brush, sweep the bronzer along the lower lash line to define, and finish with a generous coat of Power Lash Mascara concentrating towards the outer corners to lift the eyes. To complete this look, use The Duchess lipstick to add colour with a romantic feel.
