The Met Gala never disappoints. For the 2024 event, our favorite A-listers came dressed to strut across the "green" carpet, looking like a million bucks. This year's theme, "Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion," with a dress code of "The Garden of Time," was a call to action for celebs to don outfits inspired by nature's beauty. Think: florals, elegant branches, and bedazzling crystals. The night belonged to shimmer, and Sydney Sweeney was the glitter queen of the evening with a sparkly look that brought back 2000s body glitter in the best way.

Sweeney debuted a striking black bob and a Miu Miu dusty blue, floral embellished gown that made her look like she had just walked out of a fairytale, truly capturing the spirit of the theme. Her trusted makeup artist, Melissa Hernandez, painted an ethereal portrait using Armani Beauty products. She started with a dewy complexion compliments of the Luminous Silk Foundation ($69), with a touch of the brand's new Luminous Silk Cheek Tint ($39) in the shade Bold Pink and the Luminous Silk Glow Blush ($39) in shade Amore on Sweeney's cheeks to match her plump, flesh-toned lips. While we don't have the details on the exact body glitter used, we know that the Fluid Sheer Glow Enhancer ($42) in Champagne Gold worked in tandem with it to give her a goddess appeal. The star sported latex gloves, which became a beautiful counterpart, drawing attention to her diamond-draped neck and gleaming neckline.

On Hernandez's Instagram page, where she further broke down the look, the comment section flooded with fans wanting the details of what was used to create Sweeney's sparkly effect. After much anticipation, the makeup artist confirmed she used the Eva NYC Kween Glitter Spray ($15), which is a non-sticky, fine glitter spray that can be used on the hair and body.

Glitter was the star of the show on the carpet that evening — and not just because of Sweeney. Tyla, covered in shimmering sand, also painted the carpet in sparkles as a playful tribute to the main point of the 2024 theme: time.
