2011 Met Gala Favorite Faces (Makeup)
It's not always about the gown. Hair and makeup are just as important. Some ladies get it and others don't. There were a few that caught my eye last night on the red carpet. Here are some of my favorite faces from the red carpet of the 2011 Met Gala.
La La Vasaquez
I gasp every time I see LaLa's face lately. Its always so beautiful. With soft colors on the lid and perfectly bronzed. Always using a white liner on the lower lash line to make her eyes pop and seem more open. Slightly smoky but never too dramatic.
I love Janelle Monae's fresh face. A wonderful way to wear makeup and look fresh, yet look like you don't have that much on. With defined brows and the perfectly peachy cheek and a nude lip, this look is perfect for everyday, and still appropriate for a red carpet.
Sam Fine is the king of the smoky eye and perfects it so beautifully on Iman's face. Perfectly bronzed and golden elsewhere, then the perfect smoky punch on the eye with a nude lip.
