Rihanna’s Stunna Glam

Rihanna’s floral and pearl-heavy fashions were an absolute show stopper on the Met Gala red carpet, but her makeup look, created by her longtime MUA Priscilla Ono also shined bright! The face featured her signature, bold, red lip, a perfectly contoured cheek, and shimmering brow bone. For a bride looking for an eye-catching option, although seemingly complex,  this look is rather easy to achieve with the right products.

Gabrielle’s Matte Moment

For the matte lovers, Gabrielle Union was a shining example of how to do matte well thanks to her makeup artist, Esther Edeme. Gabrielle’s makeup look was fairly simplistic with nude, cool tones as the guiding hue and a dramatic, black eyeliner as the main attraction. This look exudes sultry and could be a winner for a bachelorette night leading up to the big day.

Naomi’s Top Model Glow

Glowing and luminous, Naomi’s Met look by beauty world titan Pat McGrath was one for the books. While that skin-like, healthy glow all our favorite models don seems to be a hard look to achieve, this no makeup, makeup look is actually fairly easy to emulate. If you’re a bride that’s looking for a makeup look that highlights your natural beauty this product combination is it!
