At the 2017 MET Gala in New York City, Cara Delevingne and Rita Ora may have shown up in different outfits, but they did have a few things in common. They both wore futuristic shaved heads and makeup by Rimmel London. Find out how to get their beautiful makeup looks here!


Celebrity Makeup Artist Romy Soleimani gave Cara Delevingne a feminine look to juxtapose her shaved head.
1. First, she applied Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation and Match Perfection Concealer on the skin.
2. Then she used Rimmel London Good to Glow Highlighting tint on her cheekbones, the bridge of her nose and cupid’s bow.
3. To add definition to the face, she used Rimmel London Kate Sculpting & Highlighting Kit in Golden Sands. 
4. Moving on to the eyes, Soleimani wanted to draw attention to them by creating a soft smoky eye. She achieved this by using a flick on top with Rimmel London Soft Kohl Kajal and Rimmel London Scandaleyes Gel Eyeliner in black.
5. She then added Silvery Gunmetal tones using the Magnif’eyes Contouring Palette in Grudge Glamour.
6. She used Rimmel London Shake It Fresh Mascara by concentrating the application on the outer corner of the eyes for a winged out effect.
7. She used Rimmel London Brow This Way Highlighting Pencil to accent the arch and inner corners of the brows. 
8. Since the eyes were the main focus, Soleimani kept the lips simple. She dabbed on a bit of color with Rimmel London’s dual-ended Provocalips 16 Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colour in Make Your Move and sealed it with the clear gloss.


Celebrity Makeup Artist Kathy Jeung was inspired by 1930’s Hollywood glamour when conceiving Rita Ora‘s look for the MET Gala.
1. She started by applying Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer on the skin for a smooth mattifying canvas .
2. Then she applied Rimmel London Match Perfection 2 ‘n 1 Concealer in shade Light. She used her ring finger in a tapping motion underneath the eyes to erase dark circles.
3. Next, she applied Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation in Sand with a flat foundation brush in broad strokes over the face, and then blended with a damp sponge for a sheer, natural looking matte finish.
4. She used Rimmel London Kate Moss Sculpting & Highlighting Kit in Golden Sands to highlight the tops of the cheekbones, above the jawline and down the length of the nose.
5. Jeung then contoured the hollows under the cheekbones, just under the jawbone and under the chin with a narrow wedge brush.
6. She then used a rounded brush to apply the blush on the apples of her cheeks and extended it towards temples. 
7. For a natural glow and a healthy dose of color, she applied Rimmel London Natural Bronzer in Sun Bronze. She used a large fluffy brush to dust lightly along the hairline, on temples, on cheeks and under chin. She then blended into the face to soften the contour. 
8. On to the eyes, she applied the beige shade of the Rimmel London Magnif’Eyes Shadow Contouring Palette in Keep Calm & Wear Gold all over the eyelid to the browbone as a base color and browbone highlighter.
9. She used the dark beige matte shade in the eye socket hollow to enhance the crease.
10. Jeung then lined the eyes with Rimmel ScandalEyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner by applying a thin line along the lashes to subtlety blend in the lash line.
11. Lastly, she used Rimmel London Shake It Fresh Mascara on the lashes.
12. For a structured brow, she applied Rimmel London Brow This Way Brow Sculpting Kit in Dark Brown. She brushed the powder to fill in the brows and then she extended the shape for the structured look.
13. She then kept strays hairs in place with the Brow This Way Brow Styling Gel in Clear.
14. Jeung then lined lips with Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lip Liner in  Red Dynamite .
15. She applied Rimmel London Show Off Lip Velvet in Burning Lava and Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in Kiss of Life.
16. She layered Rimmel London #Insta Fix & Matte Translucent Powder in between the layers to keep everything in place.
