Celebrity makeup artist for Laura Mercier, Jillian Dempsey, was the creator Emilia Clarke’s rosey beauty look for the 2018 Met Gala.


Clarke, known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons in TV series Game of Thrones, wore dress and crown by Dolce & Gabbana while Dempsey used the Heavenly Bodies theme to create a ‘gilded angelic makeup look’.



Jillian hydrated Emilia’s skin with a couple of spritzes of Laura Mercier Perfecting Water Moisture Mist. We at A&E love to use it in the office to wake our skin up.



To accentuate Emilia’s flawless skin, Jillian applied Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation in Linen and then used Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Heather Pink on cheek bones for a flushed look. To lock down the foundation, Jillian dusted Translucent Loose Setting Powder. She said:


“I focused on generously applying blush to both her cheeks and eyes for an especially gilded angelic look.”



To carry forward the monochromatic look of her cheeks, Jillian applied Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Barely Pink onto Emilia’s eyes and then used the Crème Eye Colour Brush. She then traced the Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Gilded Gold under the lower lash line for a pop of metallic to tie into her golden crown. Then, for extra luminosity, she dabbed Jillian Dempsey Lid Tint in Glimmer onto the top eyelids. Next, she swiped on Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eyeliner in Black Ebony to give the actress a dense upper lash.


If you want your brows to stand out like Emilia’s, then use Laura Mercier’s Eye Brow Pencil in Warm Brunette. Jillian slightly filled in the natural brow shape and sealed them into place with Laura Mercier Eye Brow Gel. Finally, several coats of Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara were applied for extra length.



Jillian created a custom lip colour using Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick in Hot and Fatale “for a custom colour that suits her complexion perfectly.” Jillian also mentioned, “lips can be hard to maintain, especially if you’re doing a lot of eating or talking, and I knew this formula would get her through the night!”


Avant garde makeup wins our beauty seal of approval.
