Darren Criss's Met Gala Makeup Makes Him the Harlequin of Our Hearts

Darren Criss Makeup Met Gala 2019

There are few red carpet looks that really make us feel things — and at the Met Gala 2019 tonight, Darren Criss did just this. Channeling the Harlequin character of Commedia dell'Arte, Criss not only stunned in his multicolored checkered blazer, he carried a campy makeup look that seriously made us stop and stare.

His cobalt blue bottom lash eyeliner extends from under his eyes to a winged-out triangle on each temple — accentuating the angular lines of his face and making his brown eyes really pop. Better yet, the blue liner is blended out to create a cool, gradient wing on each side and is balanced out by a single burgundy line on his lower lip. This nod to the Italian character is of course nostalgic to theater, trickery, and the jester in us all — pretty apropos to the Camp theme. See the full makeup look up close, ahead.
