“Fairytale Blush” Dominated The Met Gala 2024 Celebrity Makeup Looks


If there was one Met Gala trend that was everywhere on the red carpet, it was fairytale blusher. With the Met exhibition theme for 2024 revolving around sleeping beauties and the dress code inspired by the book The Garden Of Time, the celebrity makeup looks all took on a whimsical vibe that wouldn’t look out of place from a fairytale.

There were several enviable blusher moments from the night to unpack. Think ethereal skin and radiant, glowing blush in a range of pretty hues and stunning finishes. Ayo Edebiri’s featured a bright and shimmering fuchsia on the apples of her cheeks, while Kendall Jenner and Camila Morrone’s took on a folklore flush—think a pretty sun-kissed flush across the cheeks and over the nose that would make Snow White gasp. Then we had Anok Yai and Greta Lee graced the carpet with ethereal highlighted blush. Truly, this year’s makeup looks were the fairest of them all.

I am stunned by Ayo Edebiri’s glowing fuchsia blush here, which was masterfully created by Dana Delaney using Ilia beauty’s Color Haze in Sing and the Multistick in Fine Romance.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? It may well be this ethereal flush on Greta Lee created by celebrity makeup artist Nina Park. Using Addiction Beauty, she created a watercolour flush high on the cheeks for an pretty, glassy flush. Addiction Beauty isn’t available in the UK, but you can get a similar look with NARS Afterglow Blush.

Zendaya is giving all the villain vibes with this look, which sees her berry-toned blusher sweep over her cheeks and seamlessly blend into her eyeshadow. The makeup was created by Zendaya’s go-to celebrity makeup artist, Sheika Daley. The makeup products used are yet to be announced, but with Zendaya being a Lancome ambassador you can get her blusher is from the French beauty brand.

Kendall Jenner’s take on fairytale blush sees a sun-kissed sweep of colour across her cheeks and nose, created by celebrity makeup artist Mary Phillips. Jenner is a L’Oréal Paris ambassador, so we have a feeling she would’ve worn this very affordable blusher on the red carpet.

Phoebe Dynevor met gala 2024 makeup

The diamond of the season, Phoebe Dynevor, wore this incredibly pretty blush from Charlotte Tilbury, created by the makeup artists and brand founder’s niece, Sofia Schwarzkopf-Tilbury. In the behind the scenes images, it looks like she has used a cream blusher on Dynevor—most likely the Matte Beauty Blush Wand.

Another look that could have been plucked straight from a storybook was Camila Morrone’s fairytale flush, which was swept across her cheeks and nose for a pretty ‘caught in the sun’ blush. Create the look with a cream blusher by dotting it across the cheeks and sweeping a touch on the nose for an au naturale hint of colour.
