The Exact $7 Foundation Blake Lively Wore to the Met Gala


The actress and practical goddess went as designer Christian Louboutin’s date and wore a custom Versace gown featuring the most regal, bejeweled bodice and $2 million worth of Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, which included a custom-made halo with over 100 carats of nude champagne diamonds. Her jewelry, however, was not the most noteworthy part of Lively’s look. She wore entirely drugstore makeup to complete the look!

Makeup artist Kristofer Buckle said that the inspiration for Lively’s look was one of artistic origin. “Blake’s look tonight was inspired by Italian religious paintings,” says Buckle in a press release. “We wanted to create a very structured look with strong bone contouring like the statues of Saints I’ve seen.” To create her otherworldly beauty, he starting by prepping her skin with L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Moisturizer mixed with L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion to give Lively’s skin a gorgeous glow. And, holy moly is she glowing. Then, he applied L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Foundation Makeup in shade W-3 all over Lively’s skin, followed by L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Bronze It Bronzer on her cheeks and nose to sculpt and contour.

For Lively’s eyes, Buckle teased something special from L’Oréal Paris. He used the new L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Eyeshadow Palette which is launching in July. Buckle mainly used the peach and rich red-brown shades in the palette to create a sculpted look, mimicking the sculptures in the museum. For her lashes, Buckle applied multiple coats of 2017 Best of Beauty-winning L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara in Brown black.

To finish off the look, Buckle used L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Varnished Rosewood topped with a little dot of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Lip Paints in Bewitching Bordeaux on Lively’s lips to give her a berry, glossy stain.
