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 was:

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! I didn't include my brow routine in the video, but I do have all of my brow tips in a separate video: Makeup Basics: My Full Brow Routine

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!

Her makeup artist is named Patrick Ta and you can follow him on Instagram here. He also does Gigi Hadid's makeup and a lot of other celebrities, so he posts lots of eye candy.
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.
