Solange's 2018 Met Gala Makeup Was Almost Entirely Burt's Bees
While her big sis Beyonce was totally MIA from the 2018 Met Gala, Solange was making all sorts of fashion and beauty waves at the event. The singer let her fans choose her outfit — a black latex and geometric dress by Iris Van Herpen with over-the-knee boots and a halo x du rag combo. It was a sexy, unexpected, and totally Solange ensemble. She served up a Met Ball lewk that fans will be talking about for years to come.
But her outfit wasn't the sole standout element of her overall presentation. Solange rocked dewy skin, black and brown smoky eyes, and shiny 'n' nude lips.
And guess what? You can easily and affordably replicate Solange's Met Gala makeup since it was comprised almost entirely of Burt's Bees products.
No, I am not kidding and yes, we are granting you permission to do a happy dance that you can copy this look without draining your wallet.
According to press materials received by Bustle, celeb makeup artist Dana Delaney relied on a host of products from the drugstore brand to give Solange a sexier-than-thou look.
While Solange offered a dark and daring take on the Met Ball theme of "Heavenly Bodies and the Catholic Imagination" with her outfit, her makeup was super wearable IRL.
Let's have a look at her entire ensemble, which was one of the evening's and event's most epic.
We'll pause and allow you a moment to catch that breath. Upon closer inspection, Solange appeared to be wearing glossy thigh highs with a pair of lucite heels with ankle straps. That pairing was straight fire.
With her hair slicked back off her face, the singer showed off her gorgeous features. They were accented by the Burt's Bees makeup.
Here's a rundown of what was used.
1. Liquid Foundation x 2
Burt's Bees Goodness Glows Liquid Makeup in Pecan
Delaney used Burt’s Bees Goodness Glows Liquid Makeup in both Pecan and Chestnut, blending the Pecan shade through the center of her face.

Delaney lightly contoured with the Chestnut shade along the outer face and cheekbones.
2. Powder Foundation
Burt's Bees Mattifying Powder Foundation in Almond
Next, the MUA applied the brand's Mattifying Powder Foundation in Almond. She blended the product in the center of Solange's face to control shine. The first two face products were under $20 a piece. The end result? That was priceless.
3. Black Liner
Nourishing Eyeliner in Soft Black
Solange's eyes were super smoked out, thanks to this eyeliner pencil. Delaney applied Burt's Bees Nourishing Eyeliner Pencil in Black by smudging the product right in the lash line and blending up towards the lid. Notice the halo of black that beautifully rimmed Solange's peepers. This look is so easy to recreate without breaking the bank.
4. Lip Scrub
Conditioning Lip Scrub
Smooth, soft, and healthy-looking lips are a must at the Met Gala. Delaney ensured Solange's pout was on point by using the new Conditioning Lip Scrub. It's the one thing that will get lips both mwah and Met Gala-worthy.
5. Liquid Lips x 2
Liquid Lipstick in Niagara Nude
Delaney mixed two nude lippie shades to customize Solange's lip look. She mixed Niagara Nude with Sandy Seas.

Why use just one liquid lipstick shade when you can mix two for a totally unique look? That's just what happened here with these complimentary shades and on Solange's pout.
Delaney finished Solange's look off by lightly tapping in the center of her lip and gently patting the product through cheekbones, giving her a subtle highlight.
So if you are in agreement with pretty much everyone that Solange's 2018 Met Gala makeup slayed, you don't simply need to covet it from afar. You can hit up your local drugstore, grab these products, and recreate it at home with an assist from some additional items already in your makeup bag, such as mascara!
