By now we all know that Blake Lively can do no wrong, especially when it comes to her red carpet gowns and glam. So, it’s no surprise that she absolutely killed it at last night’s Met Gala.

Blake Lively Met Gala 2018 Dress

The star wore a gorgeous Versace gown with a long, dramatic train, which she accessorized with an elegant updo and gold crown piece. But you already knew that, right?

Now, Blake’s makeup artist, Kristofer Buckle, is revealing which products he used to make the Gossip Girl actress look so glowy and beautiful last night–and, get this, he used a beloved drugstore makeup brand! 

Everything used to complete Blake’s amazing Met Gala glam was from L’Oreal Paris and costs under $18. If you’re a makeup lover, you know that this is a steal, especially when it comes to her $7 L’Oreal Paris True Match foundation. “Blake’s look tonight was inspired by Italian religious paintings,” he said of her beauty look. “We wanted to create a very structured look with strong bone contouring like the statues of Saints I’ve seen.”

Here’s Blake Lively’s 2018 Met Gala beauty breakdown:

Kristofer started by prepping Blake’s skin with the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Moisturizer mixed with the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion to give Blake’s skin a gorgeous glow.


Then, he applied L’Oréal Paris' True Match Super-Blendable Makeup in W-3 all over her face, followed by his own Kristofer Buckle Undercover concealer and L’Oréal Paris' True Match Lumi Bronze It Bronzer on her cheeks and nose to contour.

For the eyes, he used L'Oreal Paris' new Paradise Enchanted Eyeshadow Palette, which is launching in July, and applied the peach and red-brown shades to help add warmth and dimension. But to get that show-stopping shimmer, Kristofer dusted real 24k gold onto Blake’s lids! He also used L’Oréal Paris' Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara in Brown Black to amplify her lashes.


Kristofer used another unreleased L'Oreal Paris product for Blake's glam: The Paradise Enchanted Blush. He swept it over the apples of her cheeks and used his own Kristofer Buckle Exposure Matte Warming Powder for extra glow.


To finish the look, he added the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glow Nude Palette on her cheekbones for a stunning highlight and mixed the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Varnished Rosewood with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Lip Paint in Bewitching Bordeaux for her berry pout.
