Go bold or go home: Met Gala’s Biggest Trend We Should All be Copying Now!


Kiss your barely there eye makeup goodbye.

No red carpets do it quite like Met Gala. Every year is memorable. Every year is unique on its own. And every year, we get to witness our favorite stars dress creatively while staying true to the event’s theme.

While the Met Gala is already done (sad!), we still can’t get over with the one trend that rose above the rest: bold eyes! Stars like Rihanna and Selena Gomez made us realize that bright eyes is the beauty trend we should all be copying right now! Check out the stars whose lids shine through the Met Gala and beyond.

We’d like to think that having The Weeknd by her side was enough to melt our hearts, but we’re wrong. Selena Gomez’s bold millennial pink makeup look was a scene stealer!

From the first time she landed the red carpet up to now, she was always one of the few stars to watch out for. Everything looks good on her. Even the rainbow eyeshadow she sported on Met was good.
