Emilia Clarke's Makeup Didn't Match — and That's What Made It So Damn Good
"Don't wear red and pink together," is probably one of your grandmother's style mantras, right up there with sequins can only be worn on New Year's Eve. Luckily, those rules were made to be broken — and Emilia Clarke just used the Met Gala red carpet as an opportunity to remind us how great the two colours can look together.
Daenerys — er, Emilia — swept an ample amount of dramatic pink blush on her cheeks, then offset the whimsical look with a dark crimson lipstick. This all came courtesy of celebrity makeup artist Jillian Dempsey, who used Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek colour in Heather Pink (£19) and a mixture of the brand's Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick in Hot and Fatale (£22 each) to create the match made in makeup heaven.
In a press releases sent to POPSUGAR, Dempsey revealed that she specifically mixed lipstick shades not only to get the perfect colour, but also to ensure the hue stayed put on her lips all night long. A rule-breaking, transfer-proof pout? Happy Met Gala, indeed.
