Madonna at the 2011 Met Gala

Hourglass Artistic Director Gina Brooke did Madonna’s makeup for this evening’s “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. “The Met Ball is one of fashion’s biggest nights out, and I wanted Madonna’s look to be elegant, timeless and absolutely luminous – inspired by 1930s glamour. The focus is flawless skin and ravishing eyes—Madonna’s gorgeous eyes and lashes are among her best attributes—which always resonate on the red carpet,” says Gina Brooke.

How to get Madonna’s makeup look:


Prep skin first with Intraceuticals Rejuvenate Daily Serum to increase vital moisture and visibly revive the complexion. Follow with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, a must-have product for any event because it ensures that makeup lasts all night. It also neutralizes the skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and pores and enables an artist to paint the perfect canvas.
