Hot Make up Trends from the Met Ball 2011

It’s probably the fashion event of the year, one reserved for the celebrity elite. The Costume Institute Gala Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, known as the met ball,  went bigger, better and brighter as it paid homage to the late, great Alexander McQueen. Most people ask “Who you’re wearing?”, but I want I’m more concerned with “What’s on your face?”

Here are my top trends and beauty queens…

Notice me Lips

Definitely the trend d’jour and showing no signs of fading any time soon were bright lips. They were all at it from Rihanna, Frida Pinto, Dianne Kruger, Nicole Richie… the list goes on. You’d think they were handing out the lippy on the door!

Nicole Richie looked like a 50s screen siren in Jason Wu, rocking scarlet lips.

Jennifer Lopez was one red-hot latino lady with chilli red lips

 Emma Stone wearing Lanvin, dazzles with on trend hot pink lips


Rihanna with hot lips and hot hair

Pretty Nude

When I say Nude, I’m not talking about Rihanna’s dress. Rebelling against the bright lip trend, these ladies looked beautiful and classy with the natural, nude and glossy look.

Despite wearing a dress she couldn’t walk in Beyonce’s make up look sizzled… How can someone look sooo fine with an inch of roots and a bog standard bun? LOVE the nude lips.

 Gwyneth Palthrow teamed her Stella McCartney gown with a feminine, natural face.

Emma Roberts allowed her natural beauty to shine through.

Bronzed beauties

There’s a fine line between bronzed beauty and orange overload, but these screen goddesses got it just right. 

Eva Mendez glowing in Stella McCartney.

Isabel Lucas every inche a Grecian goddess with a tanned complexion to match (not to mention bang on trend with the hair accessories).

With a parade of beautiful ladies it’s difficult to choose a favourite, but for me Blake Lively stole to the beauty show.
