Met Gala - The Beauty Trends

Today the papers have been full of the Met Gala pics with every A-list star you can imagine. Most have concentrated on what they were wearing, but what about the beauty trends?

There seem to be two main looks - either a very natural look, or a deep red lip that packs a punch!

Some celebs absolutely nailed the natural look with flawless, luminous skin (perhaps a BB cream used!), a golden glow (definite spray tan), a hint of mascara and lipgloss, and beautiful contouring using bronzer and highlighter. Here are a few of those who nailed this look and delivered a masterclass in a look which appears to have taken minutes, when it probably really took hours!!

The essential make-up kit for this look includes: St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Lotion and their new Skin Illuminator in Gold, Garnier BB Cream, Benefit High Beam, Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara, Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick, Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Plumping Gloss and Rimmel Sun Shimmer Bronzer.

The second main beauty look last night was more high maintenance. The gothic lip is back with a vengeance!! A deep red with a subtle smokey eye and hair either left down in loose waves or in a simple up do made sure the lips did the talking for a lot of celebrities last night.

The essential make-up bag to achieve this vampy look includes: John Freida Frizz-Ease Secret Agent Finishing Cream, Garnier BB Cream again, Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Stiletto, MAC Gel Eyeliner in Super Black, Bourjois Smokey Eyes in Mordore Chic and Soap and Glory Hocus Focus.

Which look do you like the best?
