Met 2023: The Most Powerful Makeup From Michaela to Beautiful Suki

The Met Gala is ostensibly an occasion to raise money for a museum. But we all know what it’s really about. The looks – duh. And this year’s Met was no exception. The Karl Lagerfeld theme allowed the stars to get creative, and there were some genuinely iconic fashion and beauty moments. So, without further ado, let me present the best beauty looks from the 2023 Met Gala.

Suki Waterhouse

Met Gala Artist: Cedric Jolivet

Suki’s watercolour eye makeup is the stuff of dreams. These soft pastel eyeshadow tones are perfect if you want to make a statement without opting for anything too harsh. The statement eye, pared-back skin, and simple, neat hair make for an unexpected and cool Gala look.

Get the look: The Viseart Editorial Brights palette is my go-to for any more out-there eyeshadow look. These highly pigmented colours are incredibly blendable. This makes achieving a more washed-out, subtle, pastel vibe, a la Miss Waterhouse, easy. 

Amanda Seyfried 

Met Gala Artist: Genevieve Herr

Amanda really brought the drama with her glam Met Gala look. She paired a stunning plum-toned smokey eye with a deep, wine-stained pout and big, bouncy hair. She proved that sometimes you can go for it all! 

Get the look: After curling your hair, you’ll want some old-school hairspray to achieve Amanda’s level of volume and bounce. I’m always a fan of the Sam McKnight Cool Girl Texturizing Hair Spray, which offers airy lift without ever feeling sticky or crispy. The name says it all. 

Michaela Coel

Met Gala Artist: Bernicia Boateng

Michaela always looks regal, and her Met Gala custom Schiaparelli gown accentuated that vibe. But her gorgeous hair and makeup cemented Michaela as one of the night’s best looks for me. The cornrows, in particular, were an inspired choice. 

Get the look: Michaela’s makeup is always centred around a lit-from-within, glowing skin. To achieve this natural glow, mix a Saie Glowy Super Gel pump with your foundation. It’s incredibly hydrating and has luminescent particles to make your skin shine!

Anne Hathaway 

Met Gala Artist: Gucci Westman

I mean this in the best way possible, but isn’t she serving Real Housewives of New Jersey here? That slightly messy half-updo combined with smoky eyes and glossy nude lips verges close to the border of tacky but certainly doesn’t step over the line.

Get the look: For a sharp, graphic black eyeliner that’ll stay on all night, consider the new brand Half Magic Beauty. Their Magic Flik liner pen is inky black, foolproof to apply, and won’t smudge or budge after it dries down! 

Kristen Stewart 

Met Gala Artist: Jillian Dempsey

This androgynous beauty look is undoubtedly one of the standouts of the night. Stewart proves that less can be more by pairing barely-there makeup with softly sculpted hair and a neat trouser suit.

Get the look: When you’re going for something more natural, a full and bushy brow can help to add some structure to the face. I love the NYX Thick It Stick It Brow Mascara, which has little fibres to help give your brows extra volume, plus stronghold and staying power to ensure they stay exactly where you want them!
