Stunning Salma Hayek appeared with husband, François-Henri Pinault, at the Met’s first monograph show since 1983. Celebrity makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen was inspired by the Gala’s Rei Kawakubo/Comme Des Garçons theme. “We decided on a soft, beautiful look with a zen feel. We went with a fairly simple look that emphasized eyes, eyebrows and dewy skin,” he shared, as he provided the step-by-step to Hayek’s Gala Style!
VanLeeuwen prepped Hayek’s beautiful skin with A Complete Youth Preserve Serum (“I love the way it smells, the way it feels, and the way it made Salma’s skin absolutely come alive”), which he applied with his hands. He then slathered on A Complete Facial Youth Moisturizing Cream with a sponge, followed by A Complete Youth Preserve Eye Contouring Cream.
For Hayek’s striking eyes, VanLeeuwen applied Shiseido Shimmering Eye Cream Color in Fog to her lids, lining her upper and lower inner lash lines with Nuance Long Lasting Shadow Stick in Shimmered Bark. Then he swiped her lashes with Diorshow Mascara in Black. After applying a layer of foundation he used Nuance Flawless Finish Illuminating Blush & Bronzer Duo in Bronzed Rosewood on Salma’s skin, followed by blush on the apples of her cheeks. Finally, VanLeeuwen lined Salma’s lips with Makeup Forever High Precision Lip Pencil in Number 14 over Senna Lip Lacquer in Belladonna.
