Met Gala 2014 Beauty Breakdown: Top 5
The Costume Institute Gala aka Met Gala is synonymous with glamour, and this year's theme, Charles James: Beyond Fashion, brought couture ball gowns and highly teased bouffants to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The makeup was an exercise in restrained elegance: neutral shades and minimal product (with a bold lip thrown in here and there). Keep scrolling to see all the high-fashion beauty looks.
Beyonce looked gorgeous in wine-colored lips, stark center part, and birdcage veil in a Givenchy Haute couture dress.
