Nicole Richie's Met Gala Makeup Tutorial

Get the Look: Nicole Richie at the 2011 Met Gala

Nicole Richie's Met Gala look proves that even when she's borrowing from the past, she puts an unexpected spin on it. Her Jason Wu dress had a slightly vintage feel, making her '40s-style hair and makeup look all the more glamorous. Makeup artist Eric Polito previewed Nars Larger Than Life long-wear eyeliner on Nicole, blending the fine-point liners in Rue de Rivoli and Via Veneto. They'll be well worth tracking down when they launch this Fall — trust us, we saw them at Fashion Week and they're spectacular — but for now, you can achieve a similar look with a shimmery army green eye shadow like Nars Fuji, along with a black eyeliner pencil. For that classic red lip, Nicole wore Nars Terre de Feu Pure Matte lipstick. As the name suggests, a matte shade is key. For the appearance of a fuller lip, draw the lipstick slightly over the natural shape of the lips — if you dare.
