Fashion Designer and TV Personality, Nicole Richie dazzled in more ways than one on the red carpet of the 2014 Met Gala.
The lavender haired beauty opted for an elegant sage-colorred Donna Karan Atelier gown for the evening’s festivities.
Upon looking at her dress and vibrant hair, celebrity makeup artist, Beau Nelson was reminded of an oceanic goddess. The soft accents of her dress and hair inspired Beau to create a look featuring soft shimmers and delicate tones.
“I accented Nicole’s features with subtle highlighting and touches of glitter to complement her teal dress and colorful hair,” says Beau.
Using an array of NYX cosmetics, here is exactly how you can achieve this effortless yet super color look yourself:
Face (complexion): Beau wanted the skin to be multi-dimensional and achieved the look using NYX Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation in a variety of tan shades. He concentrated a lighter shade of foundation (Golden Beige) in the center of the cheeks and face and used darker shades (Cool Tan, Warm Tan) on the other perimeter of the face. Using multiple tones on the skin allows for a more contoured and shapely effect to the face.
Cheeks: To further define and enhance Nicole’s face shape, Beau swept NYX Cosmetics Highlight and Contour Powder under her cheekbones. He proceeded by dusting a touch of NYX Cosmetics Baked Blush in Foreplay for a hint of color along the tops of her cheekbones and the Cupid’s bow above her lips.
To achieve that metallic goddess-like glow, Beau applied NYX Cosmetics Born to Glow Liquid in Sunbeam along the same areas.
Eyes: To keep with the softness of the full look, Beau applied the soft russet shades from the NYX Cosmetics The Natural Shadow Palette to her eye lids. To frame the eyes, he applied two cats of NYX Cosmetics Lush Lashes Mascara and a pair of NYX Cosmetics Fabulous Lashes in Nirvana for added volume. For an unexpected tough of added glamour, Beau applied a transparent glitter atop the eye shadow for an ethereal and luxurious finish.
Lips: Keeping with the shimmery oceanic inspirations, Beau topped the look with NYX Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Spirit—a pink nude tone that perfectly complemented her radiant makeup look.
