For A-listers, there’s a lot of beauty prep before the Met Gala, which is held on the first Monday in Mayevery yearat the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. From selecting an outfit months in advance to finalizing a fierce makeup look to getting their skin red carpet-ready, celebrities go all out before the star-studded event.
And like us, A-listers love to apply a moisturizing sheet mask before big events to give their skin a gorgeous glow. Thanks to social media, we got a peek into some of our favorite celebs’masking routines before last night’s fête. Here, the must-try sheet masks Kate Hudson, Ashley Graham, and Kendall Jenner each donned to hydrate skin and prep it for makeup.
Kate Hudson: A.H.C. Premium Hydra Gold Foil Masks
Before Hudson had her makeup done by celebrity makeup artist Gucci Westman, she applied these gold foil masks from Korean beauty brand A.H.C.—and thanks to their shiny appearance, they were a huge hit on Instagram. The combination of plumping hyaluronic acid and 24-carat gold make this mask the perfect choice before a big event (or anytime you want to up your selfie game).
Radiance was Graham’s main skincare priority before the event. She had a facial with aesthetician Mzia Shiman, who finished the SI Swimsuit model’s treatment with this Decléor mask to lock in moisture and promote an even-toned complexion.
Jenner focused her masking efforts on the delicate under-eye area. To wake up her face, she chose eye masks from Estée Lauder (Jenner is a spokesmodel for the brand). The formula taps their Advanced Night Repair technology, which helps treat signs of aging and fatigue—and in Jenner’s case, she was left with a smooth finish, ideal for a crease-free concealer application.
