The Biggest Beauty Trends on The Met Gala Red Carpet

Earlier this month, the Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted the annual Costume Institute Gala.  Considered the “It” Fashion event of the year, the fundraiser celebrates the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual Fashion Exhibit.  The night calls for Beauty and Fashion to take center stage for our personal enjoyment.  This year, at the Met Gala, we see trends shift in the Beauty Industry.  Margaret Qualley, Actress in HBO’s “The Leftovers” embodies such trends.

Makeup artist Talia Sparrow for It Cosmetics was inspired by the idea of “natural beauty, with originality.”

Talia Sparrow accentuated Margaret Qualley’s natural beauty instead of concealing or altering her features.  The natural beauty trend seen at the Met Gala is possibly considered the Anti-Instagram Makeup movement.  We no longer are seeing over carved eyebrows, dramatic contour, heavy eye makeup or full coverage foundation on the red carpet.  Instead we’re seeing natural brows, skin, glowing cheeks and jewel toned eyeshadow.

The natural beauty trend might possibly be the Anti-Instagram Makeup movement.

What’s even more beautiful is that anyone can achieve this look.  Below, Talia Sparrow explains the steps needed to achieve this look at home.
