Lanc=?UTF-8?B?w7Q=?=me, Supermodels and The Met Ball

Celebrities, supermodels and fashion designers flocked to The Metropolitan Museum of Art last night for Vogue's annual, star-studded Costume Institute gala. Hosted by Marc Jacobs, Kate Moss and Justin Timberlake, this was New York's party of the year! There was no shortage of glamour last night and Lancôme provided the makeup for a bevy of beauties including Lancôme ambassador Anne Hathaway, Lancôme spokesmodel Daria Werbowy and Arlenis Sosa, Alek Wek, Du Juan, Michelle Alves and Vanessa Traina. We have the scoop straight from the makeup artists who created the looks for these gorgeous ladies.

Celebrity makeup artist Daniel Martin did supermodel Michelle Alves' pretty, natural makeup. He accentuated the eyes with Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow Quad in Haute Sunset, a palette of neutral, peachy and beige shades. To create definition, he lined the eyes with Lancôme Le Crayon Khôl in Noir and added a few coats of Lancôme Ôscillation Mascara in Black. A dusting of Lancôme Blush Subtil in Miel Glace was applied to the apples of the cheek. Daniel used Color Design Lipstick in Love It and Color Fever Gloss in Rose Jolie to create a high-shine, pink pout.

Daniel also created the beautiful look for Vanessa Traina. He applied Lancôme Artliner in Noir to the lash line starting at the inner corner and blended it out, then coated the lashes with Lancôme Ôscillation Mascara in Black to add length. He added just a touch of color to her cheeks with Lancôme Color Design Blush in Chic Cassis, applied with his finger. To finish the look, Daniel used Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge in Rich Cashmere, the perfect hue for a beigey, nude lip.

Celebrity makeup artist Oslyn Holder worked with supermodel Alek Wek. First, Oslyn lined the upper lash line with Le Stylo Waterproof in Noir and blended Color Design Eyeshadow in Statuesque and Backstage Pass on the eyelid. To make Alek's eyes pop, she applied several coats of Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara in Deep Black. Next, Oslyn added some color to the cheeks using Color Design Cream Blush in Chic Cassis. She finished the look with Color Fever Gloss in Intense to create a beautiful, deep burgundy pout.
