Met Costume Institute Gala Makeup: Lara Stone


Supermodel Lara Stone looks sexy cool in her simple Calvin Klein gown at the 2011 Costume Institue Gala Benefit. Keep reading to see how celebrity makeup artist Stevie Huynh dolled her up for the evening.


"The inspiration for Lara Stone's Met Ball look the 60's muse, Barbarella. Bronzed skin with a strong heavy black eyeliner and lashes.

I prepped the skin with a luxe moisturizing creme (Crème de la Mer) and a light application of Clé de Peau Beauté Refining Fluid Foundation SPF 24 in shade O20, which is a little deeper than her natural skin to enhance the sun kissed glow.  

On eyes, I wanted it to feel very bare with simply a strong, sharp black line to enhance the shape of Lara's eyes; TarteEmphasEYES High Definition Eye Pencil was used. To ensure we gave her some larger than life lashes, I used MAC Zoom Lash Mascara in black and topped it off with MAC false lashes.

Since I didn't want to do a traditional nude lip, a la barbarella, I first applied Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer on the lip so that the gloss I was going to apply would be truer in color. I chose a petal pink lip gloss from Korres (Cherry Full Color Gloss in 01 light pink) just to give a hint of color.

The last thing I applied to finish the look was a bronzer that would also double up as a contour color (Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder inBlonde 01)."
