While social feeds the world over were busy obsessing over Blake Lively's two-in-one Met Gala dress this week, the Grazia beauty team were intent on getting to the bottom of her make-up look. Fortunately very little detective work was needed. No sooner had the influx of Met Gala content started to abate, than Blake Lively's go-to make-up artist Kristofer Buckle had posted a complete product round-up to his Instagram page.
While Blake lively's copper-toned take on a smoky eye, brushed-up brows and petal shade of lipstick - Charlotte Tilbury's Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk Medium, £19, in case you were wondering - drew attention, the star of the beauty show, that night, was undoubtedly Blake's highlighter. The Gossip Girl icon's skin gleamed under the incessant paparazzi flashes as she took to the red carpet, and gave the impression of lit-from-within radiance, rather than luminosity born of a bottle.
The product responsible gor Blake's Met Gala Glow? Charlotte Tilbury's Beauty Light Wand in Pillow Talk, £29. The brightening formula contains tiny, light reflecting pearl particles that deliver a soft-focus finish, a look that has clearly found favour with Gen Z - a number of Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand iterations reportedly flew off the shelves when they went viral on TikTok last year. Blake's favourite, however, is still in stock and available to shop below:
