Lilac Lips + Met Gala Beauty


First, let’s appreciate the giant feathered mohawk situated atop Sarah Jessica Parker’s head. You can’t say she didn’t own the punk theme of Monday’s Met Gala. Second, let’s admire her flawless makeup, especially the plum eyes and soft lip. I’ve been curious about the NARS Tender Night Velvet Matte pencil that launched with the brand’s summer collection.


Mainly, is it wearable? For daytime? Anytime? By normal people?  I mean, you wouldn’t think so at first glance. Which is why I was so excited to see SJP rocking it at the Met. She shows just how pretty and wearable Tender Night can be. It’s more interesting than a beige-hued nude and way more modern. I think it looks phenomenal coupled with her plum lids, courtesy of NARS Calabria Soft Touch Shadow Pencil.

The beauty at the Met Gala was all sorts of incredible. Here’s a round-up of my favorite looks!

  • Emily Blunt wore bright pink lipstick on her eyes. And it looks great… (Politics of Pretty)
  • Some serious punk-inspired nail art – I’m partial to Sienna Miller’s spiky mani. (Beauty Sweet Spot)
  •  Anne went platinum blonde and killed it. (Beauty High)
  • Miranda Kerr is maybe the perfect woman. I appreciate her glamorous waves, styled with Davines products. (Beauty Blogging Junkie)
  • I love her signature red pout, but Tay is really working the nude lip and inky eyes. (PopSugar Beauty)

    I have been obsessed with the purple shade (Oh La Lilac) of the Maybelline Color Whispers for spring. I bought it spontaneously and am so glad I did. It’s not as light/icy as the Nars one but at such a cheap price point though I think it’s a great way to experiment with the purple lip trend.

      Hey Megan! Thanks for the idea! Love the Color Whispers. I think I inspired Kylie to get a tube of that! I am going to take a closer look at the NARS on my next Sephora visit. Will report back.
