Karlie Kloss has just put up her first-ever makeup tutorial on her Youtube channel, Klossy. Her makeup artist, Sir John, redid her Met Gala look – smoky eyes and super contours all in – in a how-to vlog.

"It's more of a feline liner that happens to take on a smoky appearance," the makeup maestro explained. "Luminous skin, super soft lips...just kissable, touchable soft lips." He first draws on her brows, then gives here eyes shape with eyeshadow, does a winged cat-eye with a jade eyeliner pencil, followed by mascara and face contouring. He also introduces a beauty hack that he says he learned from Beyoncé, tapping a mauve lipstick on her bottom lip. Karlie then presses her lips together, sticking her jaw out so the bottom lip goes over the top lip.

 

Still dreaming about all the magical #MetGala moments from Monday night...

We love how it's a look anyone could rock, and it's not gobs of foundation and eye makeup. What he did was bring out Karlie's features using eyeshadow to contour the lid (and not bash on colour), only blending concealer or foundation where it's needed and contouring her cheekbones with the right touch of highlighter and bronzer. The true purpose of makeup – not for flashy, thick obviousness but to max out your features.

"The goal isn't to create some Star Wars, three-dimensional, new quality to your face. The goal is just to enhance what you already have," said John, and this is a great way to do it. Watch the video above.
