Why Iridescent Eyes Were The True Star Of The Met Gala 2021

The Met Gala was the talk of New York – and social media – last night, with a cluster of A-list and Gen-Z stars stealing the show. The theme, ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion’, is an homage to modern American style.

Amongst them was Emma Chamberlain, the 20-year-old social media sensation, who stunned with her contemporary mermaid-like ensemble by Louis Vuitton. But the winning complimentary touch was the makeup: an iridescent lid and smoky-eyed finish. Is the look we should all be aiming to perfect over the coming months?

A statement shade selection if ever there was one. Try washing shade Scylla over a smoky lid to add an iridescent accent.

LA-based makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan Fisher was in charge of Emma’s makeup, other clients include Jessica Alba and Lucy Hale. Kelsey shared a snapshot of the products she used for Emma’s iridescent look, namely Byredo’s Syren Eyeshadow Palette, £56. Emma’s turquoise accents are down to shade Scylla.

The five shades included in the product range from silver-gold, ultra-violet, denim blue, neon-chartreuse, and light pink. Each is metallic, leaving a soft glitter finish on the lid. For Emma’s gem-encrusted ensemble, there was no better match. The shades feature intense pigment and a long-lasting, easy-to-blend texture.

Byredo, the cult European luxury brand, made a name for itself with iconic scents and candles and is now firmly embedded in the makeup world, too. Kelsey also shared a range of Byredo lipsticks used on Emma – which start at £26. Here’s hoping we get a beauty tutorial for the perfect accented smoky eye…

Then there was Emily Blunt, who hardly needs an introduction. The starlet wore an ethereal Prada gown, complete with layers of sheer fabric and a structured pearl cape. Her makeup aligned with this aesthetic, embodying the light glitter that Blunt wore.

For the look, makeup artist Jenn Streicher used Chantecaille, a cruelty-free, botanically based beauty brand. She used the Pangolin Luminescent Eye Shade – a dusky lilac hue – and dabbled bits of glitter onto Blunt’s lids to complete the look.

Nominated for her role in the dramatic film ‘Marriage Story’ at the Golden Globes 2020, Scarlett Johansson looked red-carpet ready thanks to celebrity makeup artist, Frankie Boyd. Boyd revealed the secret to Scarlett’s enviable glow lay in the skincare must-haves he used to prep her skin from The Inkey List. Boyd prepped the skin first with the Hyaluronic Acid before applying the Caffeine Eye Cream. Then, he massaged the List Hemp into skin for a hydration hit to prep the skin for makeup. Coming in at under £10 a pot, it’s all worth a try, right?

Amanda Seyfried took to Instagram to showcase her beauty prep for the Golden Globes 2021. The renowned Renato Campora was on hair duty (see above his incredible pin curling skills in action) and Genevieve Herr was in charge of makeup.
Renato Campora, Fekkai Artistic Director: “I prepped Amanda’s hair with the FEKKAI Brilliant Gloss Perfecting Crème throughout the lengths of the hair and at the root the Kenra Nitro Memory Crème. Blow dry hair with round brush to prep the foundation of the style. Once dry, I created a side part – starting from the top I used 1.5 inch curling iron. I pinned the curls and let them cool for 10 minutes. I brushed the curls out with a multi-bristle brush until the curls were opened up. To finish, I sprayed the FEKKAI Full Blown Volume Texturizing Spray and a bit of Kenra Artformation Spray hairspray for long lasting voluminous curls.’
