Our favorite celebs have graced the Met Gala red carpet in the past with unforgettable beauty moments inspired by the event’s theme, and we expect the same this year. The show’s theme, In America: An Anthology of Fashion, is inspired by the gilded age (1870-1890), and attendees are encouraged to dress up in their finest gilded splendor and present highly memorable ensembles for the extravagant evening.
Here’s is our best MET Gala Hair and Makeup Looks in 2022
Gabrielle Union has never looked anything less than gorgeous, and the Met Gala in 2022 was no exception. With Lancôme’s Teint Idole Ultra 24H Long Wear Foundation, Teint Idole Camouflage Full Coverage Concealer, and Dual Finish Highlighter Illuminating Powder, makeup artist Fiona Stiles produced this simple, luminous complexion.
On the red carpet, Bridgerton actress Simone Ashley looked breath taking. Her radiant skin stole the show on the red carpet. Alex Babsky used Pat McGrath labs to achieve her stunning makeup look.
Lady Godiva-like spirals created by hairstylist Guido Palau cascaded down Kaia Gerber’s torso.Glitzy cosmetics and a precise winged liner were used to complete the look.
Janelle Monáe is a stunning beauty no doubt. For the Met Gala, the singer and actress wore a gown with a diamond-encrusted headdress, reverting to her usual black and white color palette. Perfect foundations, lacquered brows, and a bright red lip made her sparkle.
Gigi Hadid went all out with her blood red lip, a timeless cosmetic favorite. Erin Parsons, Hadid’s makeup artist, used a Maybelline lipstick for this lip.
With her exaggerated graphic black eyeliner and over-exaggerated mfanicure complete with jewels, baubles, and structured gold drips, model Isabelle Boemeke wore one of the most complex looks of the night.
With her flapper girl-inspired hair and beautiful skin, Maude Apatow attracted a lot of attention. Long lashes, rosy cheeks, and a dramatic vampy lip completed the actress’s appearance. Hairstylist Peter Lux created these ’20s finger waves.
Alicia Keys added some afro-futurism to her gilded glamour look with this diamond-encrusted halos ponytail inspired by her hometown of New York City. While the ponytail is the focal point, hairstylist Fesa Nu’s elegantly swept edges and tiny diamonds daintily put around her hairline drew our attention.
With a ’70s style afro done by Tish Celestine and small pink petals accenting her eyes to compliment her flowery attire, produced by makeup artist Billie Gene, Kiki Layne appears gorgeous in any direction.
With her curled updo and curtain bangs, Kacey Musgraves turned heads the moment she arrived onto the red carpet. Her stunning makeup, which included sparkling silver accents and long lashes, complemented the singer’s stunning appearance.
Makeup artist Moani Lee utilized Byredo products to finish Kacey Musgraves’ look, which included winged eyeliner and a crisp contour. She utilized the brand’s Eye Shadow 5 Colors in Corporate Colors and Fêtes Noires, Kajal Pencil in Chaandee, Eyeliner in Technical Black, and Astronomical Mascara on the eyes specifically.
Jodie Turner-natural Smith’s radiance proves that skincare is in. The three delicate diamonds that serve as highlights add just the right amount of shimmer. Sheika Daley, a makeup artist, created the look using Gucci Beauty.
Sophie Turner, with her burgundy wine-colored hair, rusty eye shadow, and red-orange lipstick, instantly drew our attention.
Laura Harrier added glitter and shine to her gray smokey eye makeup with multicolored pearls.
Kelsey Deenihan Fisher used BareMinerals to give Emma Chamberlain smokey eye on-theme pizazz with gold foil neatly placed in the center of her eyelids.
Kendall Jenner bleached her brows for the Met Gala on Monday, although we’re not sure how it relates to gilded glamour, we’re game. Our main concern is whether the dye job is temporary or permanent. But we do know that Mary Phillips used Kylie Cosmetics Kybrow Gel to produce the fluffy, pushed-up look.
Tessa Thompson wore a monochromatic makeup look that emphasized her high cheekbones with a gorgeous berry shadow, lip, and contemporary blush draping.
She might be a better match for a set of glittering face gems than peanut butter and jelly. Of course, none of this could take her attention away from her perfect skin.
Cara Delevignge wore gold-painted skin underneath her silver red outfit, indicating that she took the ceremony’s theme seriously. It’s encrusted with gold. It is opulent.
Megan Thee Stallion
Megan Thee Stallion is known for her breathtaking, and we wouldn’t be surprised if she wore one of them on the red carpet (say that five times fast). Created by Lauren Child using Meg’s own Revlon x Megan Thee Stallion Big Bad Palette on her high-contrast white and black eye makeup, which she combined with a glossy nude lip and a bold lip line.
What else can be said about Teyana Taylor’s monochrome purple red carpet moment? We’d be mesmerized by her vivid eye shadow and glossy lip even if she wasn’t wearing this futuristic, alien-like helmet.
Blake Lively channeled her inner queen, and her beauty look is packed with swoon-worthy elements. The actress and co-chair is seen with a lovely blonde tresses and a tiara.
If this is the replacement for Kris Jenner’s classic pixie cut, we’re pleased. Since we last saw her at the Met Gala, the Kardashian matriarch has added even more length to her new haircut. That vivid canary yellow and black, flippy hair? What could possibly go wrong?
Venus Williams wore an all-black costume with big-ass shades, bold red lipstick, a short black manicure, and braids down to her ankles with subtle silver embellishments weaved throughout, courtesy of hairstylist Nikki Nelms, for the Met Gala red carpet.
Vanessa Hudgens was one of the first to stroll the red carpet, wearing a floor-length black gown with tons of lace and sheer mesh embellishments. Danielle Priano, the hairstylist, who created this look used clip-in extensions to thicken the ponytail, which she slicked back with Sexy Hair Not So Hard Up Gel to achieve this style. She then braided and embellished each section of the ponytail with a diamond chain. She then braided the braids together before twisting them into a bun and spraying it with Sexy Hair Spray & Play Harder and Weatherproof Humidity Resistant Spray.
