After less than a year, the star-studded Met Gala 2022 is back in full swing with A-list celebrities gracing the red carpet of this theme party. Aside from donning iconic outfits, Met Gala is all about going overboard with the beauty looks particularly the hair and makeup. Needless to say, we at the Beauty Insider were glued to the screen with amazement. This year’s theme, In America: An Anthology of Fashion takes its inspiration from New York’s Gilded Glamour Age. As the attendees displayed their own interpretations during the grandiose evening, we were just simply busy taking notes in our beauty book. 

The Best Hair And Makeup Looks From The Met Gala 2022

Kaia Gerber

Having previously attended the Met Gala last year, Kaia Gerber stunned the attendees during the glitz party. With luscious cascading curls and pearl hair clips, the supermodel looked ethereal. She donned a shimmery eyeshadow with winged eyeliner, a minimal look that helps to accentuate her features. Another showstopper that is worth mentioning is her full brows which deserve an award on their own. 

Blake Lively

Our personal favourite has to be Blake Lively’s makeup look. Well, it seems that her secret for the ultimate glow is the new Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Bronzer which will launch on May 19th. Created by makeup artist Kristofer Buckle, Charlotte Tilbury products that were used during the event included Magic Cream, Magic Serum Crystal Elixir, Airbrush Flawless Foundation, Beauty Light Wand in Pillow Talk and Eyes to Mesmerise in Chocolate Bronze. 

“Blake’s look was inspired by warm-toned metals and coppers starting with a bronzed contour on the skin. Her eyes were washed with a combination of matte browns for structure and metallic rose golds and coppers to play off her Versace gown. I made her lips a gentle terracotta tone to bring some brightness to the makeup palette,” said Kristofer Buckle.

Simone Ashley

Simone Ashley made her Met Gala debut with glamorous hair and makeup looks that have been praised across all platforms. The Bridgerton star was spotted with a side part sleek ponytail and a twist of flapper-inspired curls. The smokey eye makeup helps to balance her overall look with nude lipstick and winged eyeliner. Honestly, we’re so obsessed with her flawless facial contour.

Vanessa Hudgens

The actress, Vanessa Hudgens certainly got the memo on the Met Gala 2022 theme. Her hair was styled in a high bun and accessorised with a diamond chain. The eye makeup look which features smoky eyeshadow and voluminous lashes managed to capture our attention. Her pink hue lipstick and rosy blusher certainly scream the golden gilded era.

Winnie Harlow

Aside from her amazing headpiece, Winnie Harlow sets the trend with her spiky lashes that will be the biggest makeup look this year. Her makeup artist, Adam Burrell kept it minimal to balance the over the top eye makeup. He used Lancôme products to get her ready for the event including Hypnôse 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette in Bronze Absolu and L’Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick in Tendre Mirage.

Phoebe Dynevor

Although it was her first time attending the Met Gala, Phoebe Dynevor is certainly the diamond of the season. She donned a gothic sheer dress by Louis Vuitton whereas her brunette hair was styled with soft waves.

According to her makeup artist, Sofia Tilbury “The inspiration for Phoebe’s makeup look was a modern interpretation of Victorian Glamour. She wore a beautiful, black lace dress by Louis Vuitton, so we created a fresh, flawless looking skin using Charlotte’s Beautiful Skin Foundation, with a reverse feline flick to accentuate the shape of her eyes against her dark, crimped hair. We finished with a pretty pink lip using the K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Runway Royalty and pressed Charlotte’s Hollywood Contour Wand over the cheeks to create a pared back monochromatic contour.”

Evan Mock

When it comes to the best hair look at Met Gala 2022, we can’t help but fell head over heels with Evan Mock. He simply stayed true to himself by donning his signature hot pink buzz cut. 

Maude Apatow

If you ever decide to search for the best hair and makeup looks at Met Gala 2022, you will certainly see Maude Apatow on the list. Unlike her usual natural makeup, the actress transformed her look with a flapper-inspired hairstyle and red wine lipstick with rosy flushed cheeks. Added with her porcelain skin, it reminds us of the glamorous look that is often seen donned by Dita Von Teese. 

Alicia Keys

With her own interpretation of Gilded Glamour, Alicia Keys paid a tribute to her hometown, New York City. She completed her crystal-embellished gown with a futuristic ponytail and glittery eyeliner.
