The beautiful Idina Menzel attended the Met Gala last night, and she looked amazing! Celebrity makeup artist Kristofer Buckle did her makeup, and I have some tips for recreating her look – yourself!
Inspiration: “I wanted to create a romantic, yet classic old-Hollywood look to compliment Idina’s gown and hair. Anna Wintour requested Idina wear a ruby lip. When Anna speaks, we listen.” [Buckle]
Technique: “First, I prepped the skin with vbeauté Lite Up®, massaging the product over the entire face and letting it set for a minute or two. I love the texture of this serum; it’s great on skin that needs a little bit of a lift.
Next, I moisturized her skin with vbeauté Buying Time®, applying the lotion over her face, neck, décolletage, and shoulders, and gently dabbed vbeauté Eye Never® around her eyes. The moisturizers allowed the foundation, blush, and eyeshadow to go on a lot easier and helped me achieve a milky, glowing skin tone.
For her eyes, I wanted to focus more on the lash line as opposed to a heavy liquid liner to avoid a pinup look. I used Kiss Individual Eyelashes and a light taupe shadow to grab attention without taking away from the bold lip. I created arched brows by filling them in with a light brow pencil.
On the cheek bones, I used a soft, rosy blush, which went on a lot easier thanks to the serum and moisturizer. Finally, I used Laura Mercier Ruby lip liner and MAC lipstick in the Ruby Woo shade for the dramatic lip, as requested by Ms. Wintour.”
