Following up with our tradition of reminiscing about past events, I thought it was time to write about that time Emma Roberts graced our eyes by walking on the MET Gala 2019 red carpet.

Roberts wore a flamingo colored Giambattista Valli Couture tulle dress from the Spring 2019 Couture collection, underneath it, she wore a custom Fleur du Mal high-waist.

The look was paired with pink goatskin Jimmy Choo Santina 125 sandals featuring a high block heel, an almond toe, a slingback ankle strap with crystal embellishments, a branded insole and a platform sole.

On her ears we can see her wearing one-of-a-kind carved Mixed Gemstone Wildflower earrings by Irene Neuwirth.

One of the many things that stood out about the look was her monochromatic makeup, thanks to her makeup artist Nikki DeRoest, we are able to provide you with a detailed product breakdown (be mindful that everything used was from the brand Chantecaille:


Nikki massaged Rose de Mai face oil into Emma‘s skin before foundation.
– She applied Future Skin foundation in Porcelain starting at the center of the face and blending outwards;
– she used the Le Camoflauge Stylo concealer in shade 1 to brighten the skin and touch up any redness;
Emma‘s glow was created by using Liquid Lumière illuminator in Luster and Sheen; Sheen around the cheekbones and forehead and Luster on the cheeks;
de Gournay x Chantecaille Lumiére Rose highlighter was added for an extra pop on the cheekbones, down the nose, a bit on the forehead and a little on the chin;
– she used Real Bronze gel-powder bronzer in Goa to warm Emma‘s complexion;
Nikki brushed Philanthropy Cheek Shade in Joy on the cheeks for extra brightness;
– to finish off the look, she used the HD Perfecting loose powder in Candlelight.
Nikki used Lip Veil in Pink Lotus on the eyes to set the tone, layering Philanthropy Cheek Shade in Joy on the eyelid and under the eyes;
– she then used the Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara to define the lash line;
– the MUA touched up Emma‘s brows with the Waterproof Brow Definer in Ash Blonde, to give them texture, she used the Full Brow Perfecting Gel + Tint in Dark;
– To fill the lips, Nikki used a pink beige Lip Definer in Natural and finished off the look with the Lip Veil in Pink Lotus, the same shade she used as a base for the eyes.

The flowers for the crown were plucked from a vintage flower hat that her stylists Brit and Kara found in Los Angeles.

As for the hair tutorial? We got the deets as reported on Keratin Complex‘s blog and its PR team:

“1. I first prepped Emma’s wet hair with Keratin Complex Intense Rx® Active Keratin Repair Serum from midshaft to ends to ensure hair is incredibly healthy.
2. Then, I sprayed 4-5 pumps of Keratin Complex Keratin Obsesssed™ Multi-Benefit Treatment Spray from the base of the hair through to the ends, which delivered instant shine and frizz-free, smooth results. 
3. For lift and control, I added Keratin Complex Vita Volume Boosting Foam at her root.
4. I dried Emma’s hair with a boar hair soft brush, section by section. 
5. Once the hair was dry, I sprayed each section with Keratin Complex Thermo-Shine Thermal Protectant Mist for heat protection before using heat tools and for extra luminous shine. 
6. Each section was careful curled using a 1 inch barrel iron. I immediately brushed out the curls creating long soft extended waves.
7. I created a center part with tiny clear bands and linked sections together along the hairline – down towards the ears and tapering off toward the back of the head.
8. Once that was complete, I applied what we’re calling “the Flower Explosion” using tiny French bobby pins and inserting the pin into the rubber band foundation as a perfect base to hold the flowers, constructing a half-back feel.
9. As I was finished applying the flowers, I held the entire look in place with Keratin Complex FlexFlow Flexible Shaping Hairspray.”
