Met Gala 2013: Three Beauty Looks We've Still Got to Discuss

We’ve talked fauxhawks. We’ve talked smoky eyes. But we have not yet discussed these three major beauty moments, and it’s about time.

First up: January Jones’s straight-up Black Swan makeup look. From the bleached eyebrows to the dramatic black liner, we hardly recognized our dear Betty Draper — and we kinda liked it. It was bold and brazen, but was it a hit?

Also on the daring end of the eyeshadow spectrum, Emily Blunt opted for a bold wash of fuschia shadow that totally played against the conservative vibe of her Carolina Herrera gown. Between that and her fierce Lorraine Schwartz danglers, she embodied the phrase “if looks could kill.” To get the sizzling pink, NARS makeup artist Jenn Streicher got creative, using the line’s “Jardin des Plantes” satin lip pencil topped with Desire powder blush.

And finally, Elizabeth Banks’s long, clipped-up ponytail, which didn’t quite qualify for our fauxhawk roundup, but it was head-turning nonetheless.

Tell us: Whose look did you like most: Jones’s, Blunt’s or Banks’s? Would you try any in your everyday life?

I like Emily’s look. Jones’ looks way too far out for me and the heavy eye liner at the inside corners just look bad. Emily’s looked young and fresh and a nice touch.

It’s not easy to make Emily Blunt look unattractive, but the hair & make-up artist who did this job succeeded.
