Iman at the Met Ball 2010

Iman at the Met Ball, 2010
I'm sure you've seen a lot of pictures of the clothes of the Met Ball that took place in New York on the 3rd. PR reps have started e-mailing information about some of the information behind the looks, and I had to share some of my favs!

I thought Iman looked fierce. Truly, there's no other word to describe it. Sam Fine created her look, which was described as a "Modern 30's Glam." While this was accurate if you take the entire look into account. For me this was all about dark smokey eyes that rather than being balanced by the "normal" nude lip, were paired with a dark red lip. The two balance each other quite well, and to me that is what makes this look so modern.

Skin: Every look that walks the red carpet begins with flawless skin. I start by using Iman's Second to None Luxury Radiance Liquid Makeup Enriched with Minerals (in shade 2) to highlight and conceal the under eye area. Then I uses Iman’s Second to None Stick Foundation in the same shade to achieve a flawless complexion that not only looks great on the red carpet, but lasts though the night!

After using Iman’s Semi-Loose Powder Enriched with Minerals (in Earth Medium) to set foundation, I dust bronzer near the hairline and sweep onto cheeks to add a luminous glow to the skin. Bronzer also takes the place of blush and can be worn both day and night!

Eyes: A smoky eye is one of Iman's favorite eye statements! I begin creating a smoky eye statement by using a dark shadow nearest the lashline and bringing it up past the crease of the eye, then using the same dark shadow underneath the eye to add drama and definition. Topping this off with a shimmering gold shadow on the browbone and lining the inner rim of the eye in black for added drama. And no red carpet face is complete without false lashes and a couple of coats of mascara! Iman Cosmetics Luxury Eye Defining Powders in Black Magic, Vixen & Bewitched are great for adding shimmer to the eye area.

Lips: I wanted to dress each feature of the face, so I lined the mouth with a deep brown pencil and filled in the lip with a bourdeaux shade of lipstick, Iman Cosmetic’s Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick in WildThing, to make the look sensuous, striking, and oh, so sexy!

  1. I think her make-up was a bit heavy. A lighter eyeshadow would have worked wonders for her.

  2. Hey, you look so pretty but you should do light lipstic it is so dark. I like your fashion style.
