One of the (many) things I love about my school is that our instructors encourage us to watch awards shows like the Met Gala. [I'm majoring in Fashion Design, btw, so that's why.] While I'm definitely inspired by the outfits, I also really like the makeup! Taylor Hill had a very unique look during this year's ceremony that really caught my eye. Her eye makeup was almost a maroon or rusty reddish-brown color that really made her eyes pop. I loved it so much that I recreated it for myself! Here's my Taylor Hill 2017 Met Gala makeup tutorial.
If you didn't catch her look, here are a few pics so you can see how beautiful she looked:

Here are some additional pics of the look. I added a maroon gel liner in my waterline and thought it might look weird, but it really makes my green eyes stand out!

To keep my look similar to Taylor's, I opted for a fairly neutral lip. I also outlined a little outside of my natural lip line to mimic her full, pouty lips. I kept my hair straight, too. Any type of updo would probably be too much when the eyes are already this bold!

There's always that one silly photo of me at the end when I'm tired of taking pics, isn't there? 🙂
What do you think of the look? Is it something you'd try for yourself? I think it's perfect for a summer night out — dramatic, but not too over-the-top.
