Get the Look: Katie Holmes Met Gala Makeup

by Emily L. Foley

There was a ton of amazing, weird, and beautiful makeup at the Met Gala, but among it all, Katie Holmes’s stood out.

Makeup artist Genevieve Herr was inspired by a ‘more modern Cher’ and here’s how she created the look:

First, she used Laura Mercier Hydrating Foundation Primer followed by Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer and concealer anywhere it was needed.

Next, she took the Laura Mercier Flawless Contouring Palette and added bronzer on the cheekbones and in the crease of the eyelids to add depth and definition.

Then she used Edward Bess All Over Seduction in Sunlight on the eyelids and Lancome Cushion Blush Subtil in Splash Orange on the cheeks.

She set the makeup with Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Skin Smoothing Loose Powder all over the face and Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder under the eyes.

For the eyes, she tightlined the upper and lower lashlines with Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencil in Parisian Night and then smudged the line with a Qtip, until there was no precise line, just definition.

Then, she curled the lashes, applied a coat of black mascara and then started with the faux lashes. She used Ardell Chocolate 886 lashes on the top, and six or seven Ardell Duralash knot-free naturals individual in short black on the bottom.

On the brows, she used Lancome Sourcils Tint.

Finally, she lined and defined the lips with Edward Bess Defining Lip Liner in Barely, making sure to blend the line, and finished by applying Lancome Color Design lipstick in Pink Drink (discontinued, but similar shade, Poodle Skirt, here)

Totally dreamy, right?
