Billie Eilish, the 19-year-old record-breaking singer, has just added another feather to her hat. She was a host at the 2021 Met Gala, which took place last night and has nearly broken the internet.

Billie took the opportunity to make a statement. She wore a rose-hued, tulle Oscar de la Renta gown, in what was an ode to Marilyn Monroe. The homage was complete with a short, Monroe-like bob, and epitomised the theme of the event: American fashion, its past and its present.

In charge of Billie's beauty look on the night was none other than Robert Rumsey, who favoured Charlotte Tilbury make-up buys to create the look alongside a few choice skincare products from lesser known beauty brand BYBI. BYBI is known for its commitment to being environmentally conscious, carbon-neutral, and cruelty-free. Amongst the many products likely utilised by Robert in Eilish’s soft, old-world look is the BYBI Strawberry Booster, £11.90.

Make-up artist Robert revealed on his Instagram Stories that he likes to mix this cold-pressed oil in with foundation to boost his clients' glow. Robert was responsible for Billie Eilish's incredible Met Gala 2021 look this year and we're betting this featured.

The booster, only £12, consists of 100% cold-pressed strawberry seed oil. The brand recommends it in particular for those with dry skin. In his Met-Gala-centric Instagram Stories Robert implies that he mixed the oil with foundation on the night to up his clients' glow. Is this what is responsible for Billie's show-stopping glow on the pink carpet? We think so.

Robert wrote on Instagram: ​​ ‘I mixed 2 drops of Strawberry Booster into the C-Caf Vitamin C and Caffeine Day Cream, he wrote. ‘And massaged into face and neck.’ Well, there you have it.

Scarlett Johansson

Nominated for her role in the dramatic film 'Marriage Story' at the Golden Globes 2020, Scarlett Johansson looked red-carpet ready thanks to celebrity makeup artist, Frankie Boyd. Boyd revealed the secret to Scarlett's enviable glow lay in the skincare must-haves he used to prep her skin from The Inkey List. Boyd prepped the skin first with the Hyaluronic Acid before applying the Caffeine Eye Cream. Then, he massaged the List Hemp into skin for a hydration hit to prep the skin for makeup. Coming in at under £10 a pot, it's all worth a try, right?

Blow dry hair with round brush to prep the foundation of the style. Once dry, I created a side part – starting from the top I used 1.5 inch curling iron. I pinned the curls and let them cool for 10 minutes. I brushed the curls out with a multi-bristle brush until the curls were opened up. To finish, I sprayed the FEKKAI Full Blown Volume Texturizing Spray and a bit of Kenra Artformation Spray hairspray for long lasting voluminous curls.'
