This year’s MET Gala certainly didn’t match up to the previous year’s events. The fashion was not bold or daring and the makeup looks weren’t as impressive either. However, Kendall Jenner who walked the red carpet with sisters Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, achieved her look with the help of makeup products that are actually drugstore finds!
Her sequinned black Marc Jacobs outfit was paired with makeup, done to perfection by her go-to MUA, Mary Philips.
Kendall’s MET Gala Makeup
In her caption on Instagram, Philips revealed that she and Kendall were inspired by the ’70s mod makeup with an emphasis on the eyes. “Bold lashes to compliment the upper and lower lash lines with a classic winged liner,” the MUA’s caption read, followed by a breakdown of her look and the exact products from L’Oreal Paris that she used. Since not a lot of these are available in India, I have linked alternatives that get the job done.
For The Prep
For the prep and to set her skin, Philips used products from the L’Oreal Paris Derm Intensives range that delivered a flawless base on Jenner’s skin.
She used the Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum followed by the Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid + 1% Caffeine Eye Serum under her eyes and then topped it off with the Revitalift Derm Intensives Line-Plumping Water Cream.
To set the foundation and contour Kendall’s face, Mary Philips used three different products. She used different shades to contour her face and enhance Jenner’s sculpted cheekbones well.
She mixed the Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Foundation shades 425 and 455, followed by the Age Perfect 4-in-1 Tinted Balm in Medium 20 and Deep 10 and then defined the supermodel’s eyes with the Infallible Grip Mechanical Gel eyeliner in Black Brown.
On To The Makeup
To blend out Jenner’s eyes and layer on an eyeshadow that matched her skin tone, the La Palette Nude was her go-to. The POPxo Eyeshadow Kit – Nood Crew is an affordable alternative that will deliver similar results!
To conceal Jenner’s pigmentation and achieve an even skin tone, her MUA picked out the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer in three shades – Vanilla, Cashmere, and Biscuit.
The Tarte Shape Tape Concealer has multiple options for the Indian skin tone.
And to give Kenny’s cheeks a healthy flush of colour, Philips used the True Match Super Blendable Blush in the shade Tender Rose.
To get that 100-watt shine, Philips used the True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer highlighter on Jenner. An alternative that’s easily available in the country is the MyGlamm Spotlight Illuminating Liquid.
For that sharp winged liner, The Kardashians star’s MUA used the Infallible Grip Precision Felt Waterproof Liner in 600 Black, which matched well with her outfit.
And for those voluminous lashes that gave her entire face a lift, Philips’ choice was the Telescopic Lift Mascara. The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is a cult-fave and easily available in the country.
To perfect Kendall’s brows for the red carpet, Mary Philips first went in with the Brow Stylist Definer Mechanical Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brunette to fill in the patches. She then topped it off with the Longwear Brow Topcoat in Universal Transparent so no hair would budge.
The E.L.F Cosmetics Instant Lift Brow Pencil is a product that delivers similar results at a quarter of the price and the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel is a cult-favourite product!
And finally, for her perfectly matte nude-brown lip shade, Philips used the Colour Riche Matte Lip Liner Au Naturale to line her lips and then filled them in with the L’Oréal Paris Intense Volume Matte in Le Nude Admirable.
The Kiko Milano Everlasting Colour Precision Lip Liner glides on smoothly and is also easy on the pocket!
I know I’m following this to the T to get that Kendall-like glamm!
