Thanks to Lancôme Talking Makeup has more details on the looks created for the Met Ball 2009. Read on to get the inside scoop straight from the makeup artists who worked with Lancôme ambassador Anne Hathaway, Lancôme spokesmodel Arlenis Sosa and supermodel Du Juan.
Celebrity makeup artist Leslie Lopez gave Hathaway her ultra-glamorous, ultra-dramatic look, with smokey eyes as the focal point. Leslie swept Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in Statuesque over the entire eyelid, dabbed Color Design Eyeshadow in Daylight on the brow bone and finished with several coats of Lancôme L’Extreme Mascara in Black. Anne’s sheer, neutral colored lipstick- Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick in Couture Suede-was the perfect finishing touch.
Lancôme makeup artist Tarek Abbas was the mastermind behind Lancôme spokesmodel Arlenis Sosa’s soft, polished makeup.
First, Tarek lined Lancôme Le Crayon Khôl in Black Ebony on the upper lash line and followed with Le Stylo Waterproof in Noir, smudging it on the lower lashes. (Since this formula is waterproof, it’s ideal for the lower lash line!) For a pop of shimmer, Tarek added Color Design Eyeshadow in Kitten Heel to the eyelid. Lancôme Ôscillation Water-Resistant Mascara in Black created a faux-lash effect. For a high-shine pout, he lined the lips with Le Lipstique in Amandelle and topped it with La Laque Fever in Neutral Current.
Lancôme makeup artist Andrew Sotomayor created supermodel Du Juan’s radiant makeup look. He used Lancôme Artliner in Brown on the upper lash line and added a few coats of Lancôme Virtuôse Black Carat Mascara, giving her lashes a boost of volume and length. Andrew added just a touch of color to the eyes with Shu Uemura Eyeshadow in ME Brown 860 and ME Pink 100. He lined the lips with Lancôme Le Lipstique in Natural Mauve and topped it with La Laque Fever gloss in Pink Dimension, resulting in a pretty pink pout. A dusting of Star Bronzer in Bronze Dore gave Du Juan a sun-kissed complexion.
