Beauty At The MET Gala 2024 Was All About Metallic Eyes And Striking Lips

As always, we’re ready to judge our favourite celebrities from the confines of our comfortable couches as the first Monday of May descends upon us. Fashion’s most glamorous event is here and everyone understood the assignment for the MET Gala 2024. This year, the Costume Institute’s new exhibition, ‘Sleeping Beauty: Reawakening Fashion’ was celebrated in all of its glory. The dress code for the evening was the ‘Garden of Time’ and let’s just say—everyone showed up and how. Silver eyes, wet hair and striking lips seemed to be the beauty theme for this year at the MET Gala.

Here are all of the beauty looks we loved seeing at the 2024 MET Gala—


Nobody shows up at the MET Gala better than Zendaya does. She experimented with the goth side of things this time around. With intense plum smokey eyes and ox-blood lips, this dark feminine aesthetic is everything. (You want to read till the end though, ’cause this isn’t even the full story).

For her second appearance, Alia decided to stick to her romantic makeup roots and chose subdued glamour. With brick eyes and rosy cheeks, Alia’s makeup was breathtaking. Her monotoned brick lips tied the whole look together like a dream. And how can we forget the wispy tresses that fall in just the right places?

Supermodel makeup is always alive and thriving and Tyla just shows us that. Her soft, brown eyeshadow was paired with a sleek, feline flick. Her cheeks had a wash of peach mixed with a dash of golden. She sported a slit eyebrow and boy was it stunning!

Celestial-core was alive at this year’s MET Gala and Jennifer Lopez proved it. With soft makeup and icy eyes, her makeup was striking yet subtle at the same time.

Gigi Hadid

The serial MET Gala attender Gigi Hadid’s appearance this year was better than ever. She showed off her brand-new bob and proved that bobs are here to stay. She looked almost Monroe-esque and we are all here for the return of the old-Hollywood glam.

Jennie Kim

Jennie brought the 00s back with her nostalgic makeup. With silver eyeshadow and doe-eyeliner, her makeup was every bit enchanting. Jennie went with pinkish nude lips that matched the tone of her outfit. Her tresses were held together in a coquette-like bun, something we adore!

Natasha Poonawalla

I mean, does anyone do the MET Gala better than Natasha Poonawalla? We think not. Her maximalist makeup matched her maximalist outfit to the T. Always staying on top of beauty trends, Natasha decided to sport diffused red lips and an intense smokey eye that played around with silver and black.

Rita Ora

Rita Ora brought all of our mermaidcore fantasies to life with her wet look. Her metallic eyes and bleached brows were a powerful statement and the black cat eye added the perfect dash of intensity. Rita decided to give her bob a messy, wet look and let’s just say—mermaids look like that.

Greta Lee

Glass skin has stood the test of time and rightfully so. The shiny finish of Greta Lee’s skin paired with subdued pink cheeks and lips was every bit stunning. She styled her short bob with structured finish and that matched her showstopping outfit.

Doja Cat

Nobody does outlandish makeup better than Doja Cat. Showing off her signature buzz cut, she seemed to have hopped on the metallic eyes bandwagon. Doja chose dramatic silver eyes that were characterised by some intense kohl on the waterline. The steel grey tears added the correct amount of drama to her look.

Zendaya – part 2

One could expect the co-chair of the MET Gala to make a smashing second appearance. Zendaya took to the steps of the MET for the second time and showcased bleached brows with an entirely nude makeup look. A stark contrast from her first appearance, showing us that she can truly do anything.

Ariana Grande

While we’re all waiting for Ariana’s performance in Wicked, she decided to channel the Good Witch for her appearance at the MET Gala. She gave winged eyeliner a never-after twist by adding angel wings with fairy dust. Can we say, LOVE?

Keke Palmer

As much as we adore Keke Palmer’s classic baddie makeup, her hairstyle is what has our attention. She sported a sleek ponytail that towered above her crown majestically. We couldn’t miss the rhinestone bedazzled crown.

Sydney Sweeney

Sydney Sweeney shocked all of us with that stunning transformation. A daring movie from blonde to jet black, her hairstyle grabbed eyeballs. With extremely rosy cheeks and nude lips, she looked exactly like a princess.

Amanda Seyfried

If there was one person who decided to go all out with their beauty decisions, that’s got to be Amanda Seyfried. Structured silver tresses and a deep magenta lip caught everyone’s fancy. Petition to be allowed to wear this in public?
