LORDE AT THE 2015 MET GALA
Celebrity Makeup Artist Amber Dreadon created a bronze smokey eye, to complement Lorde’s metallic, sequin Calvin Klein dress at the 2015 Met Gala.
“Since she is wearing this incredible Calvin Klein gown, with all sequins, we wanted to pick up on the texture of that. Some sequins brush up and some brush down, so the metallic look of the eye was created to capture that same feel” says celebrity makeup artist Amber Dreadon.
“First I started with skincare; I believe that you can’t create a beautiful makeup application without first perfecting the skin, so I began with Babor Skinovage PX Sensational Eyes Refreshing Active Pads. I followed with Babor Skinovage PX Perfect Combination Daily Mattifying Cream, which has a light consistency and leaves a matte appearance. Finally, I finished with Babor Skinovage PX Sensational Eyes Cooling Eye Gel” says Dreadon.
“I then used Sisley’s Phyto-Teint Eclat Oil free foundation and lightly buffed it into the skin, to keep the skin looking natural and to create a light flawless base. Following foundation, I used Sisley Transparent Face powder with a large powder brush to lightly set the foundation and to remove unwanted shine. I defined her brows by using Sisley Brow pencil in Cappuccino and combed with the comb attached to the brow pencil.”
“I applied Sisley Phyto-Eye Twist in Bronze to the lash line and blended outward, essentially creating an elongated liner and base for the smokey eye. With a liner brush, I then blended a few shades of Sisley Phyto 4 Ombres in dream to give this smokey eye a hint of metallic blue along the lash line. For finishing touches, I curled her lashes and applied Sisley’s So Intense Mascara which has a fine comb on the end, which picks up and lengthens the lashes. Since the eye was so bold, I wanted to keep the lips simple, so I gently applied the Phyto Lip Twists in nude and baby. This made sure that the focus stayed on the eye” says Dreadon.
