So while I was not invited to the Met Gala I did lust after the sumptuous gowns and the meticulously painted faces of celebs who graced the red carpet. Rimmel London Makeup Artist Jo Baker graciously shares how she gave mega hot mama Cindy Crawford her vavavoom face at last night’s Met Gala using Rimmel London products. And yes you can GET the look with Rimmel London products and even try the newest products with Rimmel London’s exclusive Virtual Makeup Tool.
Who: Supermodel Cindy Crawford at the 2016 Met Gala: Manus x Machina.
The Look: Futuristic Mermaid
The Inspiration: Rimmel London Makeup Artist Jo Baker balanced the legendary model’s silvery scaled Balmain gown with smokey pink eyes and a soft, pinky-nude lip. Her look was fluid, modern and chic.
How to Get the Look:
Jo prepped Cindy’s skin using Meaningful Beauty Ultra Lifting and Firming Serum to smoothe skin and then applied Rimmel London Lasting Finish Primer to blur any imperfections. Using a foundation brush, she blended Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25H Foundation in Classic Beige for flawless coverage. Embracing Cindy’s “beach babe” persona, Jo utilized the bronzer in Rimmel London Sculpting & Highlighting Kit by Kate Moss in Golden Sands, giving Cindy a warm glow all over her face and then swiped the apples of her cheeks with the blush tone.
Jo applied Rimmel London Exaggerate Automatic Lip Liner in Innocent to Cindy’s lips, creating a soft, symmetrical lip line. She then filled in lips with the liner to create a base for Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss in #45 – the perfect nude pink.
EYES & BROWS
Jo and Cindy wanted a soft, dreamy and smokey eye and kept the palette cool to compliment her silver dress. First, Jo smudged Rimmel London ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Stick in Trespassing Taupe on the back of her hand and applied it across Cindy’s eyelid and under her lash line a soft shadow brush. She then added Rimmel London ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Stick in Bootleg Brown near the lash line to create depth and density. Finally, she applied Rimmel London ScandalEyes XX-treme Mascara in Black to her lashes creating dramatic length.
Although Cindy is a natural brunette, her hair is slightly lighter than usual. To fill in her browns, Jo applied Rimmel London Brow This Way Eyebrow Sculpting Kit in Blonde to groom and sculpt her brows.
And celebrity makeup artist Kathy Jeung shared how she gave Rita Ora her look at last nights Met Gala using Rimmel London products.
Who: Singer Rita Ora wowed on the red carpet at the 2016 Met Gala: Manus x Machina
The Look: Metallic goddess
The Inspiration: Celebrity makeup artist Kathy Jeung drew inspiration from Rita’s silver, feathered, custom Vera Wang gown, adding a metallic pop at the inner corners of the eyes and a warm, bronze to help shape them. Kathy complimented the singer’s show-stopping eyes with glowing, sculpted skin and a slightly iridescent lip.
How to Get the Look:
Kathy prepped Rita’s skin with the Rimmel London Fix & Perfect Pro Primer, smoothing it onto her face to minimize pores and create a flawless canvas for foundation. She then blended Rimmel London Match Perfection Concealer Concealer in Light underneath the eyes to erase any signs of dark circles. Next, Kathy applied Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation in Golden Honey with a foundation brush and a damp makeup sponge. To contour Rita’s cheeks, Kathy applied Rimmel London Natural Bronzer in Sun Dance to the hollow beneath the cheekbone and blended upwards and then applied the blush from Rimmel London Sculpting & Highlighting Kit by Kate Moss in Golden Sands to the apples of the cheeks.
Kathy lined Rita’s lips with Rimmel London Exaggerate Automatic Lip Liner in Innocent and then applied Rimmel London Oh My Gloss! in Non Stop Glamour – a pale, shiny pink – for a slightly iridescent finish.
EYES & BROWS
Kathy filled in Rita’s brows with Rimmel London Brow This Way Sculpting Kit in Mid Brown and finished with Rimmel London Brow This Way Styling Gel in Medium Brown to keep them in place throughout the night.
Using the Rimmel London Magnif’eyes Double Ended Shadow & Liner in Queens of a Bronzed Age, Kathy blended the bronze shadow into the crease and lower lash line. She then applied Rimmel London ScandalEyes Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick in Witness White to the inside corners of Rita’s eyes, blending the pencil out with Rimmel London ScandalEyes Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick in Guilty Grey. As a final touch, Kathy applied Rimmel London SuperCurler 24H Mascara in Black to lengthen and curl Rita’s lashes.
