Met Gala 2015
Met Gala 2015

It’s here: all the pictures from The Metropolitan Museum Of Art’s Met Gala 2015, an event highly anticipated by fashion-folk the world over. It’s one of the few times in the year we see celebrities, business tycoons, fashionistas, artists, designers, and more walk the red carpet in some of the most risqué outfits ever.

This year’s Met Gala marked the opening of the exhibit: China: Through The Looking Glass, a costume display dedicated to Chinese fashion dated back to the 16th Century. Celebrities in attendance were asked to dress the part and didn’t we love all the inspiration they brought to the red carpet? We aren’t just talking outfits, of course. As a beauty blogger, I’m brining you the low down on all the oriental inspirations and interpretation on the faces of the A-list ladies at the MET last evening.

1) Glowing Skin

Asian women are touted as having some of the most flawless skin on earth. They’re known for glowing, bright skin and why wouldn’t everyone want that? Hollywood celebrities aren’t just following skincare routines and using products from the east, they’re also experimenting with makeup that provides dewy, soft skin. Here’s who was glowing on the MET red carpet.

2) Sculpted Red Lip

The bold, matte red lip has been an Asian makeup trend that has lasted over the years. It’s classic and when your lips are sculpted to that perfect Oriental pout, it can frame your entire face. Here are the ladies that rocked matte red pouts last night.

3) Winged Eyeliner

It’s a common Asian trend to draw thick eyeliner flicks that go upwards to create a bigger eye effect. These stars brought their best winged liners to the red carpet, giving their look an eastern touch.

4) Pulled Back Hair

Tight, pulled back hair, perfectly made buns, and poker straight dos remind me of Geishas. Take a look at some of the women who followed this trend in keeping with the theme.

5) Eyebrows

Many oriental women tend to have straighter, statement eyebrows, especially when filled in. Heavily drawing in eyebrows have been a historic party of a lot Asian cultures. Lady Gaga, for example, had the perfect geisha eyebrows drawn in.

It’s Chinese actress and pop star, Fan BingBing and God damn, she looks like a real life Asian goddess. She’s got the porcelain skin, sculpted lips, winged liner, and the bold brows.

Who’s makeup, subtle or strong, did you prefer the most? Do you love seeing the stars experiment with their looks as much as I do?
