Get the Look: Maggie Gyllenhaal at the 2011 MET Ball.

Maggie Gyllenhaal was made up by celebrity makeup artist Benjamin Puckey for last nights MET Ball.

 

Inspiration:
“Maggie chose a beautiful blue sequined dress to wear, so we decided to keep the makeup very polished and luminous with a pop of glossy color on the lips.  Maggie still had an amazing glow from a recent vacation that we wanted to accentuate as well.”

How-To:
“I started with a light touch of CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige-Tendre to even out her skin tone and CHANEL Moisturizing Bronzing Powder in Bronze Rosé applied on the top of her cheekbone and temples.

The eyes were kept fresh and defined with the shimmering beige shades in the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Dunes. Two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir accentuated her long lashes.

We chose CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Elise, a berry-rose shade, to complement the blue sequined dress and applied it without a lip liner just as a glossy lip stain.”

Get the Look: Isla Fischer at the 2011 MET Ball.

Isla Fischer looked gorgeous at the Met Ball where she had her makeup done by Celebrity Makeup Artist Fiona Stiles.

Isla wore a sapphire blue sequined strapless dress that looked incredible with her gorgeous red hair. We kept her skin a light golden color and focused on smoky grey eyes that would accent, not compete, with the dress. The lips and cheeks were warm neutral tones that looked radiant and effortless, like Isla herself.

I applied COVEGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation using a flat synthetic foundation brush and blended it down to a thin layer with a damp sponge. I prefer using a loose powder to set foundation, so I used the COVERGIRL Professional Loose Powder in Translucent Medium. Using the COVERGIRL Instant Cheekbones in Peach Perfection, I used a little as contour, then the peachiest color as blush and then brushed on a touch of bronzer for warmth and radiance. Using a few different products subtly can really add dimension to the face. The bronze over the peach just makes it feel more like the color is radiating from within her.

On her eyes, I swiped the Silver end of COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast in Silver Sky over the eye and blended it up towards the brows, then smudged a bit under her lower lashes. Then I took the COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 1-kit in Shimmering Onyx and smudged it into the lash line on the top, and the outer corners of the lower lashes. I smudged out the color and added a bit more of the Silver Sky and smudged it towards the inner corner of the eye. Two coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Fusion on the top and bottom gave her big flirty eyes.

I added a touch of COVERGIRL Lip Perfection lipcolor in Kiss on her lips and she was out the door!
