Met Ball Makeup | Laura Mercier

A couple of makeup looks tonight on the 2013 Met Gala Red Carpet ft. Laura Mercier Makeup & Skincare on Anne Hathaway, Claire Danes and Ginnifer Goodwin!

Anne Hathaway
Look by Adam Breuchaud for Laura Mercier

Breuchaud gave a subtle nod to the event’s punk theme by creating a bold, “electric blue” smoky eye to complement Anne Hathaway’s flawless, porcelain skin.

FLAWLESS FACE: A flawless, “clean” face was the perfect canvas for the look  

EYES:  Breuchaud went with a “bold smoky” eye to pay homage to the “punk” theme   

LIPS: Fresh, natural lips complemented the dramatic eye   

Claire Danes
Look by Matin Maulawizada for Laura Mercier

Makeup artist Matin Maulawizada drew inspiration from Danes’ “beautifully textured long black dress.” The dress was “elegant, but had a very modern twist,” which he wanted the makeup look to reflect.  He was also inspired by the “punk” theme of the evening, stating, “I wanted to bring in inspiration from the punk era and make it into a beautiful version fit for the red carpet.”

EYES:  Black-rimmed eyes with a pop of pink

FLAWLESS FACE:  Sun-kissed skin
·         First, Maulawizada applied Laura Mercier Repair Eye Serum ($80) underneath the eyes and on the cheekbones and then appliedLaura Mercier Mega Moisturizer Crème SPF 15 in Normal/Combination Skin ($50) all over the face.  Next, he massaged the face usingLaura Mercier Foundation Primer ($32) (this happens to be Danes’ favorite part of the make application process!).   
·         He next applied Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Nude ($43) and followed with Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact SPF 20 in Nude ($45) for added coverage. 
·         Using the Bronzer Veil from the Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Healthy Glow for Face & Cheeks Crème Colour Palette ($48), he contoured her cheeks and blended the color underneath Danes’ chin to even out her “sun-kissed” skin from the weekend.  
·         Next, he used Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-3 ($30) to conceal any small imperfections.
·         Lastly, he lightly dusted Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in Translucent ($35) to set her makeup, ensuring she looked flawless all night long. 

LIPS: Soft Lips   
·         Maulawizada applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Pink Blush ($26) to Danes’ lips.

Ginnifer Goodwin
Look by Mai Quynh for Laura Mercier

Makeup artist Mai Quynh created a Siouxsie and the Banshees/punk-rock-inspired look for Goodwin, who according to Quynh, “loves wearing edgy makeup.” She stated, “Ginny loves to play up her eyes and wear fun makeup. She’s never afraid of colour or going too bold, and lets me have fun and be daring with her looks.”

EYES:  Quynh gave Goodwin “heavy, dark eyes” to complement the black leather trim of her floor-length, mixed-metal Tory Burch dress

FLAWLESS FACE:  Goodwin’s skin was radiant with a healthy glow

LIPS: Quynh kept the lips simple and nude
