Confession: I’m obsessed with Alicia Vikander.
Seriously, she’s the ultimate girl crush. Not only is she an Academy Award winning actress, but she’s also got that cool girl air about her. She could wear a t-shirt and jeans and still look like she’s just walked off a yacht in Cannes. She’s also rumored to be dating Michael Fassbender, so that’s reason enough to admire her.
Then, upon learning “The Danish Girl” star used Burt’s Bees makeup and skincare products for her 2016 Met Gala beauty look last night, I completely fell in love.
Burt’s Bees makeup artist Georgie Eisdell says her look for the actress was inspired by the amazing Louis Vuitton gown she wore, and the night’s theme, “Manus x Machina, Fashion in an Age of Technology.”
Eisdell wanted the look to be modern, but not overdone. First, she prepped Vikander’s skin with Burt’s Bees Renewal Smoothing Eye Cream and Renewal Intensive Firming Serum. She then used the sustainable line’s BB Cream to even out Vikander’s skin tone. The star’s look was complete with a subtle, pink lip look using the brand’s lip crayon inSedona Sands and lipstick in Blush Basin.
The result was this stunning makeup look that seemed to make the star glow up the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s famed stairs.
If you’ll excuse me, I need to run to my nearest CVS.
