Emily Blunt’s Magnificent Met Gala Makeup

Jenn Streicher, Celebrity Makeup Artist for Laura Mercier, created Emily Blunt’s beautiful Met Gala makeup moment.  The inspiration ?“Very modern beauty look, with clumpy, right-off-the-runway lashes.” Here, the beauty breakdown.



· First, Streicher prepped Blunt’s skin with RéVive Intensité Moisture Serum Extrême ($365), followed by Révive Intensité Crème Lustre Day ($385) and RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Eye Cream ($150), which refined her skin and increased the look of natural fullness.

· Next, Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Oil Free ($36) was applied to the entire face, to ensure long-lasting makeup throughout the entire evening.

· To achieve a soft, glowing look, Streicher used NEW Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation in Linen ($48) over the entire face, and Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-2 ($35) to even the skin tone.

· To accentuate Blunt’s gorgeous cheekbones, Streicher created a light contour with Fiona Stiles Sheer Sculpting Palette ($28) and then applied Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder ($40) right above her cheekbones to emphasize a nice, sheer glow.

· To set the look, Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder ($38) was applied to her entire face.


· Next, Streicher primed the eye using Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Cotton ($27). She then glided Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Vanilla Nuts ($25) to add a light neutral champagne hue all over the eyelid. She then applied Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Fresco ($25) to the crease all the way up to the brow, to bring in some warmth.

· To intensify the rich brown colour, Streicher applied a small amount of Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Truffle ($25) to the crease.

· Streicher then applied Ardell Long Black ($5) lashes across her lash line and added three coats of Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara in Black ($26) to create a “clumpy lash look.”


· Streicher used Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Embrace ($28) for the perfect pout.
