Fashion Tips For The Week- Met Gala 2017

Best Dressed:

Rosie Huntington Whiteley pulled all the stops out of the bag for her 29th birthday party- she took the silver route with a sequined backless mini dress, two strap heels and oodles of golden curls. She accessorised her look with tanned mile long legs, a simple clutch and a pink hued makeup look.

Met Gala 2017:

Every year, Hollywood’s favourites rock up to the Met to look at art and raise some dosh for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. Each year, there is a theme for all attendees, this year’s being ‘Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons’. To you and me, each outfit must be inspired by the Japanese Rei Kawakubo, who is the founder of the label Comme des Garcons (meaning: like some boys), a label which doesn’t focus on the conventional pretty element. Here are some of my favourite looks from this year’s gala-

How to: Daytime Drag

Now, as much as we all love RuPaul’s Drag Race, I think we can all agree that drag makeup isn’t exactly daytime attire. However, if you’ve a few spare hours on your hands, here’s a few tips on how drag can become a very glam daytime look- without looking like you’re about to hit DragCon.

1) Obviously you won’t be gluing your eyebrows down, but be sure to apply a generous layer of moisturiser on your face before you begin. Pluck your brows and exfoliate generously before as layers and layers of makeup will reveal any imperfections in your complexion.

2) In between layers of product, remove any excess so the overall result isn’t cakey. An easy way to do this is to cover a sponge in a tissue and dab this all over the face in between layers- after colour correction, after foundation, after cream contour- to remove any additional product and create a look that’s, ahem, realistic as possible.

3) Don’t overdo the powder- even though you may be incredibly tempted. Use a loose powder, the finest version you can get- this will truly set the product and not accentuate fine lines.
