How-To: Maggie Gyllenhaal's Met Gala look!

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - Arrivals

Kiehl’s Since 1851 is extremely proud to have been part last night’s Met Gala festivities, courtesy of artist Molly Stern, who used Kiehl’s skincare, including our brand new Micro-Blur Skin Perfector, to create Maggie Gyllenhaal’s gala look.

Used were:

· Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration

· Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector

· Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

· Kiehl’s Facial Fuel No-Shine Moisturizing Lip Balm

Here’s makeup artist Molly Stern on how to get the look:

“I love working with Maggie Gyllenhaal because she has a radiance and style that comes from so deep inside.

Tonight she wore an incredible gown by Valentino in honor of the MET gala. The gown had a touch of 70’s flair in shape and color.

I wanted Maggie’s skin to be warm and healthy as if she had just come back from vacationing in St Barth.

To begin, I prepped her skin with a spray of Jurlique Citrus Purifying Mist and then applied Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration to deeply moisturize her skin. Then, to give the skin a refined and extremely smooth texture, I applied Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector.
Then I warmed up her skin tone using Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation in Shea.

Moving on to the cheeks, I applied Koh Gen Do Moisture Foundation in #303 to the hollows of her cheeks, blending up to the apples. Then, to add a healthy glow of flush I applied Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Canyon.

To prep her eyes I applied Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado to give the eye a nice smooth base to hold the color. Next, I applied Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Tawny. Then I applied a combination of NARS Matte Eyeshadows in Bali and Namibia to lid and added a touch to smoke out the lower lash line. To line the eyes, I dipped a wet brush into NARS Matte Eyeshadow in Thunderball and applied it tightly to the lash line. Finally, I curled her lashes and applied a few coats of mascara using the Lancôme lash curler and Lancôme Custom Volume Hypnose Mascara in Black.

For her lips I first based and moisturized Maggie’s lips with Kiehl’s Facial Fuel No-Shine Moisturizing Lip Balm. Then I painted the lips with Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge waterproof lip color in #2 to ensure her lips stayed put all night. Lastly, I popped a highlight of nude peach at the center using Hourglass Lipstick in Grace.

She left looking sophisticated and sexy with tonal glow.”
