Daisy Ridley, best known for her role as Rey in Star Wars, walked the blue carpet at the MET gala in a striking black and white gown, and a beautiful glow. Celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh gave us the secrets to her glowing skin.

“I wanted to keep Daisy’s make up classic and glamorous, to go with the dress. I wanted her skin to glow while adding a little drama to the eyes.”

I started by prepping Daisy’s skin with Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque . I applied this mask and left it on her skin for about 8 minutes while she started her hair. This mask works great for tired skin. I had her rinse it off, then I applied Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream SPF 30  to her face. I added Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado to her eye area as well as Kiehl’s Butterstick Lip Treatment SPF 25 to her lips.

 Next, I applied EX1 Invisiwear Liquid Foundation in 3.0 with a foundation brush. I dotted EX1 Delete Concealer in 2.0 around her nose and wherever needed. I set her face with EX1 Invisiwear Compact Powder in 4.0 using a powder brush. I brushed on EX1 Blusher in Natural Flush to the apples of her cheeks. For her eyes, I applied a sheer wash of Surratt Beauty Artistique Eyeshadow in Soie all over her eyelid, as a base. Next, I applied a Gel Liner in Black, creating a beautiful, glamorous, thick cat eye. I finished her eyes and with one coat of Black Mascara. For her lips, I applied NARS Audacious Lipstick in Brigitte.”
