Emma Chamberlain's Met Gala Makeup: Look by Kelsey Deenihan

“It’s all about a nod to the legendary Karl Lagerfeld and the late 90’s with Emma’s Met Gala look. Her fabulous structured two-piece and matching headband are a bit more polished, so we wanted to compliment and balance that with deeper, more edgy makeup. We decided to go with a 90’s brown lip and a rough, blue smokey eye to complete the look.”
