hellomagazine.comMarc Jacobs Artistry Ambassador Hung Vanngo talks us through the steps to achieving the make-up look Emily rocked at the Met Gala
Emily Ratajkowski never fails to look fantastic on the red carpet and her envy-inducing make-up look for the Met Gala was simply sublime, with subtly sculpted cheeks and dual-toned eyes that accented her dazzling Marc Jacobs gown.
#MARCFAM Artistry Ambassador Hung Vanngo was the man behind Emily’s make-up look and used Marc Jacobs Beauty products to create the masterpiece. “I wanted to pull some accent colours from the dress but not necessarily any colours that matches too closely,” he said.
Here's how to emulate Emily's beautiful Met Gala make-up look...
Ace of base
First of all Hung applied the Under(Cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer to prep Emily’s complexion. He then combined the Genius Gel Super-Charged Foundation with the Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter and patted the illuminating mix onto Emily’s face to create an all-over glow.
To set her foundation, he dusted on the Perfection Powder – Featherweight Finish and swept O!Mega Bronzer Perfect Tan along her cheekbones, jawline and forehead for definition.
To create Emily’s shimmering eye look, Hung drew the Matte Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Whirl(Pool) across her lash line and sketched the Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Sunset – a metallic bronze hue – under her lashes. Next, he blended the soft, gold-nude shade from the Style Eye Con Plush Eyeshadow Palette in The Dreamer onto her eyelids.
He then curled Emily’s lashes and applied a couple of layers of the Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara before applying the Feather Noir Ultra-Skinny Lash Discovering Mascara on the bottom lashes for definition. Her brows were given extra oomph with the Brow Wow Defining Longwear Eyebrow Pencil in Medium Brown.
To achieve the beautiful peachy lip look Emily worked on the red carpet, Hung applied the terracotta-pink New Nudes Sheer Gel Lipstick in Understudy after tracing around her natural lip shape with the (P)Outliner Longwear Lip Liner Pencil in Oh Cocoa.
Adding a pop of colour to Emily’s cheeks, Hung applied the Air Blush Soft Glow Duo in Lines & Last Night and then set the look with a gentle spritz of Re(Cover) Perfecting Coconut Setting Mist.
To amp up the glow factor, he patted the radiance-boosting Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator above her cheekbones and onto her brow bone. And there you have it!
