Though fashion is front of mind when thinking about the Met Gala, the way celebs pair their dynamic outfits with the right hair and makeup is equally as important. So on Monday, while we were gawking at the larger-than-life dresses and surreal costumes, we were also paying close attention to how they pulled it all together up top.
Check out 18 of our favorite beauty looks from the night of extravaganza. It was bright, it was big, and it was pretty dang extravagant.
Gaga put our false lashes to shame with these massive pink, gold, and silver falsies dangling to the middle of her cheek. To add size to her already round and bold eyes, she trailed her water line with a white liner and finished off the look with a bright pink lip that perfectly matched her dress. To keep her skin smooth throughout the night, makeup artist Sarah Tanno prepped Gaga’s face with the new, first-ever skin-care product from Marc Jacobs Beauty, Youthquake Hydra-Full Retexturizing Gel Crème ($59, Marc Jacobs Beauty).
When it came to the hair, she wore a bleach blonde bob wig adorned with hair-made bows across the crown of her head. Talk about extra.
And if you were wondering how a drama legend shows up to fashion's biggest night, this is it. Porter said forget your shimmery eye shadow and showed up with his lids and their outer regions adorned with real pearls and jewels. He topped it all off with a chain headdress that put any fancy hair pin we thought we had to shame.
From head to toe, everything Ashley Graham wore this evening was an ode to fashion icon Dapper Dan. That included jeweled hair pins that spelled out Gucci, sea foam green eyeliner to complement the collar of her dress, furrowed brows, and a muted lip. The slick ponytail was created by none other than celebrity hairstylist Justine Marjan using Tresseme, ghd, and Kitsch hair pins.
Staying on theme of matching eye makeup to wardrobe, Awkwafina stepped on the red carpet looking like literal 24K gold. To add contrast to the monochromatic theme, the look was finished off with a simple red lip.
Cox hit the carpet with a literal rainbow of colors on her face — and on her hair. Wearing an elaborate all-black gown, Cox wore a colorful, avant-garde beat for a masterful contrast that made her stunning face the true star of the evening.
Fanning has never been afraid of color, and tonight was no different. And while we were obsessed with her baby-doll makeup, we couldn't keep our eyes off her extravagant nails.
Saldana's voluminous, teased-out hair with purple flowers for accent was the perfect touch to her bronzed look.
Renaissance beauty is what Moore was going for Monday night, and she did just that. The orange hair and orange makeup with muted brows is oh so camp.
Lizzo showed up to the Met drippinvg in head-to-toe pink. Wearing a hot-pink wig meant for a rich bitch, she wore similar hues across her eyelids, lips, and cheeks.
Hadid was the definition of icy with these bold white lashes and very understated complexion makeup.
Clearly unlocking the fountain of youth, the superstar arrived looking younger than ever with a shimmery purple eye and muted lip.
If anyone was going to serve us "those punk rock boys from high school," it was going to be Stewart. She rocked a shaggy orange cut with the brows to match.
Chopra arrived to the gala looking like something out of wonderland, and we lived for every minute of it.
