Leslie Grace’s Rosy bareMinerals Look at the 2021 Met Gala

By Kylie Smith | September 14, 2021

For fashion’s biggest night of the year, Leslie Grace went full-on pink, from head to toe. 

The singer-songwriter-actress interpreted the 2021 Met Gala theme “American Independence” with a rosy makeup look that featured all bareMinerals makeup, and starred our new MINERALIST Eyeshadow Palettes. bareMinerals Global Makeup Ambassador Denika Bedrossian’s goal was to create a feminine, modern and classic look that embraced Leslie’s natural glow. Today, we’re sharing all the details of how Denika mastered this look with her favorite clean beauty makeup products.

“For this year’s Met Gala, Leslie Grace dazzled the carpet with a stunning Prabal Gurung dress made for a princess. The bright pink tones gave a fresh take on a classic look,” explained Denika.

A glowy makeup look always starts with the skincare, so Denika prepped Leslie’s skin with SKINLONGEVITY Long Life Herb Serum to create a hydrated, luminous base. Next, she applied ORIGINAL Liquid Mineral Foundation in shade Golden Tan 20 to add natural coverage while allowing Leslie’s skin to shine through. To create Leslie’s glow-from-within quality, Denika used ENDLESS GLOW Pressed Highlighters in shades Free and Whimsy. Then, for that perfect pink flush, she swept GEN NUDE BLONZER in shade Kiss of Rose, as well as Loose Powder Blush in Rose Radiance onto her cheekbones and temples. Denika then used her personal favorite ORIGINAL MINERAL VEIL Pressed Setting Powder in shade Sheer Medium to minimize shine on the red carpet and add an instant filter to Leslie’s skin.

“I wanted to keep her makeup really dewy, modern and clean yet defined,” said Denika.

Denika matched Leslie’s eye look to her Prabal Gurung dress, with blossoming pink shades from the MINERALIST Eyeshadow Palettes in Rosewood and Burnished. First, Denika applied the shade Heat to the center of the lid, creating a warm bronze base. She then blended the inner and outer corner with Wildflower, a deep shimmery purple hue, and Spark, a bright matte coral. To add a bit of drama to the eyes, Denika lined the outer corners and lash line with MINERALIST Lasting Eyeliner in Garnet. Then, to pull forward the pink tones, she added more ENDLESS GLOW Pressed Highlighter in Whimsy to the inner corners of the eye. For instant length and volume, Denika enhanced Leslie’s lashes with STRENGTH & LENGTH Serum-Infused Mascara. 

For Leslie’s lips, Denika wanted to keep things simple. She applied MINERALIST Hydra-Smoothing Lipstick in Grace, layering MINERALIST Lip Gloss-Balm in Serenity to create a sheer pink tone that completed this soft yet show-stopping look.

“All in all, Leslie’s look was feminine, modern and classic,” said Denika.
