Here’s How To Achieve Your Favourite Met Gala 2022 Beauty Looks

Monday night saw the Met Gala take place, the annual event where a number of pop-culture celebs are all in one place and we usually sit at home and talk about the fashion wins from the evening, but perhaps not this year… Taking place in The Big Apple, the annual fundraising event is obsessed over for one reason and one reason only – of course, its beauty and fashion.

As usual, the invitees that appear on the red carpet have a set theme to follow and this May we’re looking at ‘In-America: An Anthology of Fashion, Gilded Glamour’. Paying homage to the period of New York between 1870 and 1890, where ball gowns and corsets were even more popular than they are now (thanks Bridgerton!), guests pulled out all the stops for their walk up the iconic steps. Although most obeyed the theme through their outfits, it was open to interpretation of what beauty we’d see on the carpet (after all it was the 1800s, and full glam is a thing of the future!).

In a sea of looks inspired by the Gilded Age, we saw high ponytails, long flowing locks, bold lips and even bleached brows (Kendall Jenner always comes through with a statement). So, if you’re a beauty fanatic and love to marvel all things hair and makeup as well as fashion, here are the best beauty looks from the Met Gala 2022.

Kicking it off with Netflix’s favourite, Nicola Coughlan and her copious amounts of long, blonde, slightly waved hair. Usually opting for a bob, Nicola kept it chic and tasteful whilst keeping in line with gilded glamour for a strong beauty look. The lush locks were achieved with the Cloud Nine hair tool range including, the Airshot Pro, the Luxury Round Brush, Original Iron Pro straighteners, the Waving Wand and finally, brushing through with the Luxury Dressing Brush. Absolutely stunning!

Rocking up in her black and gold outfit and with her golden flute as an accessory, Lizzo presented a more grunge, gothic version to the theme which we definitely saw with her makeup look. The standouts for us? Her bold, dark lip and spiked lashes. Makeup artist, Alexx Mayo, revealed on Instagram the products he used to create this sultry look: Lip Cheat in ‘Bad Romance’, Matte Revolution in ‘Festival Magic’, both by Charlotte Tilbury, and Poker Face lashes from Velour Beauty.

Chloe Bailey’s golden choker wasn’t the only thing that was winged, her full, gilded glam was accompanied by a pair of false lashes that elevated her look to that of an angel. For a flirty, full lash finish like the singer’s, try the Faux ‘Mykonos’ lashes by Lilly Lashes– a met-worthy look can definitely be achieved with these.

Opting for a more modern hairstyle that was true to her culture, Quannah Chasinghorse’s figure 8 braid was a standout look of the night for us. Although created to make a statement without outshining her dress and jewellery, the model stuck to the luxurious elements of the Met. Using all Amika products to create the look including, the Glass Action Universal Elixir, the Shield Anti-Humidity Spray, the Conductor 1 Styler, the Headstrong Intense Hold Hair Spray and the Wizard Detangling Primer. It takes a lot but is 100% worth it!

Model Precious Lee wowed in her completely sheer outfit paired with a black corset (top marks for the gilded glamour aspects), but most of all, we couldn’t stop looking at her flawless skin. Makeup artist Marcelo Gutierrez revealed his use of Barbara Sturm skincare to prep the skin before going in on the makeup. Notable products used included the brand’s Cleanser, Hyaluronic Serum, Face Cream and Balancing Toner. Precious shows us that skincare is so in!


We can’t help but mention, actress and comedian Awkwafina’s textured high pony with added shine was the perfect pairing with her peachy dress and subtle glam. There were only a handful of products used to create the look, but a thick texture was the aim for her hairstylist Anthony Campbell, using mostly R+Co products to achieve it. The two key products are the BLEU Magnifier Thickening Spray and the BLEU Lifestyler Volume and Texture Spray.

Jodie Turner-Smith showed off all things that glitter, with an abundance of diamonds and sparkles, for her first-ever Met Gala. Her gown really was the moment in this look, but we think the subtle glam paired was *chef’s kiss*, especially the three delicate jewels acting as highlight for the brows – the perfect way to mirror the outfit in the makeup.

We hope you didn’t miss Gigi Hadid and her high-gloss vinyl outfit but of course, our highlight was her outfit-coordinated makeup. Gigi’s makeup artist wanted to nod to gilded glamour with clean, fresh skin, accompanied by a pop of blush and lipstick – what would’ve been the go-to back in the day. A full face of Maybelline products were used to create the look including, the SuperStay Longwear Liquid Foundation, Cheek Heat Gel-Cream Blush in ‘Fuchsia Spark’ and Super Stay Vinyl Ink Liquid Lipcolour in ‘Wicked’ and ‘Red-Hot’.

Simone Ashely made her Met debut in something a little less ‘Regency era’ than what we’re used to seeing her in, but nonetheless, she still looked as elegant as usual. Opting for mauve glam, Simone made a subtle statement with her matching eyeshadow and lips, all put together with radiant base makeup – we’re obsessed!

And finally, one for the Kravis fans. Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker debuted their Met Gala appearance with matching manicures, Kourtney with a ‘T’ feature on top of pink-beige nude, and Travis with a ‘K’ on top of clear polish – both placed on the thumb, written in Old English style font. The neutral colours were achieved with The Gel Bottle’s Jet Black and Marshmallow. Couple goals!
