This year's Met Gala theme was a tribute to Comme des Garcons's founder Rei Kawakubo, who embraces the avant-garde. Beauty chameleon Priyanka Chopra did not shy away from the challenge, with makeup artist Pati Dubroff re-creating "the glow that comes from being in a humid storm" on the star's stunning face. Dubroff, who used Laura Mercier makeup to craft the breathtaking look, exclusively revealed the details to POPSUGAR.
As you'll notice, there was a strong monochromatic aspect to Priyanka's beauty style (so grunge!), with the centerpiece of the look being her flashy metallic eye. "I thought about desert dunes and the play of light on those tones," Dubroff shared over email. "Her eye is like a bolt of lightning, mimicking her incredible Jennifer Fisher earrings."
Dubroff prepped Priyanka's skin by applying RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Eye Cream ($150) and RéVive Sensitif Renewal Cream ($215), then massaged in the formulas with frozen Makeup Drop applicators ($20 each), which depuffed and soothed her skin.
To create the "lightning bolt" eye, Dubroff created the shape with a sparkling liner, then topped it with the Metallik Pewter shade from Laura Mercier Editorial Eye Palette Intense Clays ($48). She added extra shine to the very center of the lid using MAC Cosmetics Pigment in Platinum ($22). Dubroff completed Priyanka's look with a cool chocolate lip, using Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Crushed Pecan ($28).
While Priyanka obviously is flawless, she doesn't have to worry if her makeup melts slightly throughout the evening. Dubroff swears the foundation will last all night, but the highlighter layered on top may wear — and that's a good thing. "The more it wears and get juicy, the better," the makeup artist insisted, reminding us of the "humid storm" theme. (The star's skin will look sweaty and glowy by the time she heads out of her last afterparty, which is damn sexy.) Keep reading to see more shots of this hot look!
