After a one-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the Met Gala 2021 is finally back and fashion’s most anticipated annual event made up for lost time with a star-studded guest list, who arrived in their most glamorous gowns and suits. This year, the Met Gala celebrated American fashion, but we all know that a look is never complete without a red-carpet-ready glam. Fashion may be the main talking point during the Met Ball but we simply can’t overlook the beauty either. A paparazzi shot from the Met Gala lasts on the internet forever and no one wants to be caught un-powdered or without just the right amount of a blinding glow or blended shadow – so every pose, smize, and smirk matters. Since makeup is the crown jewel of every look, it’s only right that we round up the best beauty looks from the Met Gala 2021.

Billie Eilish

Could Billie Eilish get any more dreamy? Apparently, she can. With hair pin-curled to perfection and soft natural makeup, Billie's Met Gala glam was a modern ode to both Marilyn Monroe and the Holiday Barbie. Billie's makeup was done by Robert Rumsey using Charlotte Tilbury makeup. Some of the products used were Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation, Charlotte Tilbury The Super Nudes Nudegasm Face Palette, and Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Iconic Nude.

The Met Gala superstar arrived fashionably late and she did so wearing flawless makeup. Her rosy cheeks and crimson lip, by Hector Espina, popped against her all-black outfit and, of course, it was all thanks to Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin products. Some of the products used were the Fenty Skin Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturiser Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen, Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation in 300, Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in “Trophy Wife,” “Ginger Binge,” and “Lightning Dust”, and Fenty Beauty Pro Kiss’r Lip-Loving Scrubstick.

Emma Chamberlain

Emma Chamberlain looked like a doll in her ‘60s mod-inspired glam. Her bronzed face and matte pink lip gave her graphic eye look plenty of room to shine. Emma rocked a pop of green shadow on the lid and a spiky set of lower lash falsies that perfectly framed her natural doe eyes. When it comes to hair, her slicked middle parting and flipped ends make for a super on-trend style for fall courtesy of Laura Polko. Emma’s makeup was done by Kelsey Deenihan Fisher using BYREDO Colour Stick in La Scène across the lid and BYREDO Colour Stick in Dravite in the inner and outer lid. To finish the look off, Fisher used BYREDO Eyeshadow 5 Colour Palette in Syren.

Megan Fox

Megan Fox channeled Bettie Page with a fresh set of micro bangs and a pop of cherry-red lipstick. Megan's blunt bangs and classic cherry makeup were courtesy of Andrew Fitzsimons and Ash K Holm, respectively.

Cara Delevingne

The only thing more statement-making than Cara's shirt is her choice of a gorgeous, shimmery red eyeshadow. It's the kind of shade that looks hard to pull off but is actually quite easy to wear. The wet hair look is all the rage right now, too.

Maisie Williams

Game of Thrones actor Maisie Williams gave ‘90s grunge realness at this year’s Met Gala. Her gelled hair was a sculptural work of art in itself, while her retro brown lip and soft eyeliner make this look an easy one to replicate at home – just don’t forget the dot of eyeliner on the undereye.

Gigi Hadid

Jessica Rabbit's got nothing on Gigi Hadid's auburn pony and sky blue eye look. The model debuted a fiery new red hair colour on the Met Gala red carpet. Paired with her powdery blue eyeshadow, this hair shade might be Hadid's new signature – it's breathtaking. Her makeup was done by Erin Parsons using mainly Maybelline products (including the new Instant Perfector 4-in-1 Matte Makeup that will be launching in 2022)
