Met Gala 2017

Monday welcomed the highly-anticipated Met Gala 2017 where all our favourite celebrities wore something spectacular, for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. Rihanna, Kendall, Gigi and Selena are just a few from the A-List party that stunned with their designer gowns.

This year was even more exciting for us as both Diane Kruger and Hailee Steinfield had their makeup looks created using our Rodial makeup! We couldn’t wait to see what looks makeup artists Gina Bass and Stephen Sollitto would create and we were not disappointed. Diane Kruger sported a beautiful soft, glowy look with pops of colour to the cheeks whilst Hailee Steinfeld made a statement with a bold liquid liner flick.

To create Diane’s fresh, pastel pop look, Gina Bass, prepped her skin with our Instaglam Airbrush Primer to ensure her makeup stayed in place throughout the night’s festivities with skin remaining hydrated and glowy. This was then followed by the Rodial Skin Tint + SPF 20 to provide natural coverage to the skin for a dewy no makeup makeup look. The makeup was then set with our Instaglam Compact Banana Powder which acts like a matte highlighter to enhance facial contours, helps correct and conceal redness in the skin and eliminates any unwanted shine.

Diane’s taupe smokey eye was created with the Rodial Eyeshadow Palette which provides the perfect nude shades to create her soft smoulder. To further define her eyes and make them pop, Gina then lined the bottom half of the eye with our kohl  Smokey Eye Pen in Black which goes on as a creamy pencil and has some real staying power.

To finish off her look she then added a pop of colour to the cheeks with the Blusher in Copacabana, for a soft-focus effect. Follow this with a light sheen to the lips with our Glamstick in Bang.


For Hailee Steinfeld, Stephen Sollitto used our Dragon’s Blood range to prep and hydrate her skin. To hydrate her lips and under-eyes she wore our Dragon’s Blood Lip Masks and Dragon’s Blood Eye Masks. These masks provide instant and intense hydration for brighter and younger looking eyes and lips. This was then followed by the Dragon’s Blood Velvet Cream. This rich, luxurious cream will continue to deliver moisture throughout the evening to keep the complexion looking flawlessly soft over a long period of time.

To mimic that signature eye that Hailee wore so effortlessly, use the Rodial Liquid Liner. This felt tip pen style liner will glide over the eye to create that feline flick, with that incredible colour pay-off. Complete the dramatic look with the Glamolash™ Mascara XXL which will create plenty of volume and intensity to the lashes, with maximum longevity.
