When it comes to the Met Gala, the fashion never disappoints and the same can be said for the beauty looks. Of course the theme this year, 'Gilded Glamour and White Tie' allowed for fashionistas, actresses and all the icons in attendance to put their best ‘face’ forward. Literally.
'The Superbowl of Fashion' allows for plenty of creativity when it comes to outfits, but of course it is also the makeup which gets the attention on the red carpet. Although this year’s beauty offerings weren’t quite as avant-garde as the 'Camp theme' in 2019, the timeless nature of the 'Gilded Age' lent itself to some truly stunning make up looks.

Maude Apatow - Vampish
Maude Apatow was radiant in her makeup look which looked like it was plucked directly out of the Gilded Age, she gets a 10 out of 10 for sticking to the theme of the evening. Dark dramatic lipstick paired with slicked waves looked vampish, yet still young enough to suit the starlet.
Kaia Gerber - Guy Bourdin Volume
Kaia’s Guy Bourdin-esque hair gets all the props, no it wasn’t exactly on theme - but we loved the hair clips and subtle makeup which let the bouffant do all the talking.
Vanessa Hudgens - Crystal Updo
Vanessa Hudgen’s took on a gothic-My Fair Lady approach to her outfit and beauty look, proving sometimes more is more. Her up-do was adorned with strands of crystals, making it clear that hair jewellery was a standout trend at this year’s Met Gala.
Naomi Campbell - Face Crystals
Naomi Campbell did not disappoint in her makeup choice for the 2022 Met Gala, her face was adorned with crystals which sat on her legendary cheekbones and were delicately places around the nose and forehead for a truly original and inspiring look.
Gigi Hadid - Ombre red lip
Our favourite makeup looks from the Met Gala would not be complete without a red lip. Gigi Hadid’s makeup was barely there with the exception of her strong red lip which featured an ombre effect - darker around the lip line and fading into a lighter red gloss. It was a look strong enough to carry the dramatic red coat she was sporting for the occasion.
