The Met Gala, a.k.a. “Fashion Prom” is pure fantasy. It’s the stuff fashion lovers dream about, where most of the looks (if done correctly) wouldn’t fit in at any other event in the world. Outfits are prepped months in advance, dresses are custom designed, and grand entrances are planned. Essentially, it’s a competition on how to out-fabulous other celebrities, and this year’s “Camp” theme offered stars plenty of opportunities to do exactly that.
While skin care prep such as penis facials (yes, really) and other treatments can cost almost as much as the gowns themselves, plenty of drugstore hair and makeup products make their way onto the red carpet. So while you may not be able to afford a custom Gucci gown (or have a place to wear it), you can certainly cop the same mascara Katy Perry wore while dressed like a human chandelier.
Ahead, we round up every drugstore hair and makeup product worn at the 2019 Met Gala. Celebrities, they’re just like us.
