Get Jessica Chastain’s Look From The Met Gala Red Carpet

Did you love Jessica Chastain’s look on the 2017 Met Gala Red Carpet? She always gives good red carpet – I love her!

Here is a breakdown on which Charlotte Tilbury products were used to create this gorgeous look.

Jessica Chastain Met Gala Red Carpet

Jessica Chastain hit the carpet in an enchanting, pale yellow gown with a classic makeup look created by makeup artist Tyron Machhausen for Charlotte Tilbury Beauty.


1. Jessica’s skin was prepped with Charlotte’s Magic Cream, to the entire face to create the perfect canvas, which acted as the perfect base to the Light Wonder Foundation in Shade 2. Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in 1 Fair was lightly dusted across Jessica’s T-zone to control shine and set the face.

2. To create the mesmerising eye look, Luxury Palette in The Sophisticate was applied across the lids and underneath the eye. Rock ‘N’ Kohl in Bedroom Black was applied along the upper lash line, and topped off with two coats of Full Fat Lashes to the top and bottom lashes.

3. Followed by Beach Stick in Las Salinas across Jessica’s cheekbones for a pretty pink, healthy, youthful glow.

4. Jessica’s look was completed with a matte lip, created by applying Matte Revolution Lipstick in Lost Cherry. The lipstick was applied using a finger instead of a brush for a softer, just kissed finish.

The Absolute Perfect Red-crimson Lip

Ever since I
saw Jessica Chastain’s amazing lip color in Miss Sloane I have been obsessed
with finding the ultimate red-crimson lipstick.


I have
searched high and low for a color even close to the Miss Sloane lip, but
everything I found was too something. Too red (and not all of us can pull off
red lips every day) or not blue enough, or too dull, too dark, too pinky, or
too lifeless.

On shoots I
will just mix up the color I want or need, but in my daily life I need to have
a lipstick I can grab and go.


I got super
lucky a couple of weeks back when Tarte

sent me a box of makeup to use on my
Luca Magazine Spring 2017shoots. The box contained the entire collection of lip
paints, and in there was the absolute perfect red-crimson. For me this is the
color of the season, and let me tell you why.

Red is
great, but it can be overwhelming. For those of us who aren’t supermodels red
isn’t always a win, and isn’t always the perfect shade. Sometimes it just feels
too much. Sometimes a red lip feels like too much work.

Red can
cross the line between projecting confidence and projecting sex-bomberage. One
of the reasons I loved Jessica Chastain’s lip in Miss Sloane was that it at all
times made you feel that she was in charge, she was powerful, she was strong,
but at the same time it eluded the overtly sexy connotations of a traditional

Red-crimson is
still a sexy color. It’s just a little more manageable. And it’s also a little
unpredictable. It goes with so much more in your closet than a regular red does.


It looks quite pinky here, but Fly is actually deeper and less pink.
(see Jessica Chastain picture above)

It makes
your teeth and the whites of your eyes look sparkling white. It compliments
cool skin tones exquisitely, and it leaves your lips looking a little bitten,
which is quite alluring!

spring/summer 2017 bold lips are a major makeup trend. Red-crimson gives you a
power lip, but it is a power lip that fires up the gorgeous tones in your skin,
looks stunning with a tan, and once again – it goes with verything!

The Tarte
red-crimson is in their new Lip Paint collection so it has a matte finish and
lasts all day. The color is Fly.

cosmetics are available at Ulta, Sephora, and on the Tarte website.

The best bra is one you never think about.

Jessica Chastain’s Incredible Lips In Miss Sloane

Jessica Chastain just made every lipstick you own irrelevant.


This weekend Chastain’s new film, Miss Sloane, opens nationwide.
Her Oscar worthy performance will keep you on the edge of your seat as the movie twists and turns and ducks and feints. 
Miss Sloane is all intelligent dialogue, rich, delicious dialogue that happens at a wickedly fast clip, with Chastain delivering a verbal armageddon at a mile a minute.

When dialogue is so important to a film, the mouth delivering this dialogue is crucially important. Jessica Chastain’s mouth in this film is mesmerizing. You can’t take your eyes off it. 

Chastain’ dialogue is delivered through a compelling, mesmerizing vermillion lip.


Elizabeth Sloane is a feminine, fashion forward D.C lobbyist who’s power is locked up in a vermillion lip that reminds us at all times that she is in charge, at all times. It tells us that she will not be falling into any traditional traps, that she is a step ahead of the opposition. It tells us that she is not frivolous and she is not to be trifled with.


A true red would perhaps be an obvious choice for a woman in power, but true reds can add an element of sexuality to a woman, perhaps giving her an implied availablity to men. Perhaps a challenge to men, but ultimately a traditional red lip would let men sexualize her as opposed to fear her.

And this is where the genius lies. The vermillion lip combines power with blood sport. At first glance you know that she would tear an opponent to pieces and walk away with no remorse.

It’s fantastic.

Miss Sloane is easily one of the best films of 2016.

Change your plans for this weekend and make sure you go see it.

Here are some great vermillion inspired lips to help you channel your inner Miss Sloane:
