    Some of My Fave MET Gala Looks

    The MET is a can’t-miss event. And while I sit here every year waiting for my invitation which I am sure has just been lost in the mail, I soak up all the beautiful celebrity looks I can, checking out the hair, the makeup, the dresses! This year, a few of my faves got all dolled up by NARS and made their entrance looking nothing short of elegant, glamorous and simply stunning. Here are some of my fave looks and the products they used to score the BB411-approved style.

    Jessica Stam, by far my favourit-est model ever, is so gorge in this photo taken at Monday night’s MET Gala that I literally wish I was her…or that I at least knew her! I adore her feminine dress, statement and gala-worthy neck bling but I especially love her superb curly locks which are gently pulled to the side and her understated makeup. To get the look, NARS Makeup Artist Fabiola Arancibia used Douceur Blush and Pigalle Lipstick.

    Ashley Olsen is another A-lister who had a fabulous look. I love the classic look to match her ultra-elegant gown. NARS Celebrity Makeup Artist Molly R. Stern did good picking Sex Appeal Blush (I have this one — loves!) and Copacabana Illuminator for a vibrant, yet natural-looking glow.

    I have to be honest and say Nicole Richie doesn’t wow me all that ofte, but her scarlet lips looked fab with 1940s vamp hairstyle. (Although she could have used a root touch-up, no?) Eric Polito used Terre de Feu Pure Matte Lipstick. I actually do not own this one. Must buy!

    And finally, Bar Refaeli. You simply have to hate this woman just because she always looks so good! And we hate anyone who looks better than us, right? Or is that just me? Anyhoo…this lady looks hot. NARS Makeup Artist Nico Giulis used Laguna Bronzing Powder and this gave her skin a totally natural-looking sun-kissed glow. This is a definite must-have for the summer ladies.

    Who were some of your fave MET Gala celeb looks?

    New Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils from NARS

    I told you about the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils, which I totally love, a few months back. If you loved them, you’ll definitely love these, too. As of February 1, you can enjoy the same smooth texture Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are known for with the shiny finish of a gloss instead. I’m a huge gloss fan but most gloss haters out there have the same complaint: it’s sticky! And who could blame anyone for disliking that?

    If the sticky-factor has kept you from crossing over into the gloss world, fear the beauty of gloss no more. NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils are non-sticky, lightweight and they have a shiny finish. The soft texture of lip pencils makes them feel more like balm than lip colour or gloss. Plus, they’re easy to pack in your makeup case and a breeze to apply.

    I like to use lip pencils when I want a precise application. I can trace the contour of my lips perfectly and with the new Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils ($30), I can still pull off the effortlessly-chic look of gloss.

    Head over to a NARS counter near you tomorrow to check out the new additions to the collection.
