Met Gala Beauty Tips

What’s the beauty secret that stars like Michelle, Nina, Ashley and Carey Mulligan all indulged in before the Met Ball in NYC? Facials! We’ve got the exact treatments and products used so you can glow like a celeb!

It’s actually a myth that you should get a facial one to two weeks before a big event — in fact, mega stars like Ashley Greene, Nina Dobrev and even designer Zac Posen were glowing at The Costume Institute Benefit at The Metropolitan Museum on May 6 because of the beauty treatment. Read more on how you can get a facial like a star below!

Met Gala Beauty Tips — Secrets Of The Stars

Celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas helped give Michelle Williams, Julianne Moore, Ashley Greene and Zac Posen glow on the star-studded red carpet.

For Michelle, Julianne and Zac, Joanna did her Triple Crown Facial.

The popular three-step facial reduces puffiness, tones and tightens, and refreshes the eyes and face. The first step is a gentle exfoliation to remove impurities and dead skin. Then, a stimulation occurs with microcurrent technology to promote collagen and elastin for anti-aging. Finally,  a vitamin spiked pure oxygen treatment boosts radiance and hydrates the skin!

Ashley opted for the Oxygen Purifying Facial for a special glow! It diminishes fine lines and wrinkles and gives your skin tons of moisture. The all-natural ingredients are great for acne-prne skin and helps plump and hydrate skin before a big event.

Carey Mulligan & Nina Dobrev Hit Up AMOREPACIFIC Spa

Carey had the Moisture Bound Clarifying Facial and Nina had the Time Response Advanced Gene Facial at AMOREPACIFIC Spa in New York City before the big event.

Carey, who has been to the spa a few times, relied on aesthetician Lisa Vela for a glowing look.

Carey choose the clarifying facial because it is “an ideal treatment to repair problematic skin conditions. It’s a purifying deep cleansing facial to combat stubborn clogged pores, control oil, and promote a clearer, more refined complexion. Asian botanicals such as Licorice Root, Water Lily Extract and Ginger Root are incorporated into a clarifying mask to balance, clarify, brighten and mattify. High frequency stimulation prevents breakouts and unevenness.”

Nina’s Time Response Facial “draws from the advanced gene science of Green Tea EGCG featured at the heart of the TIME RESPONSE collection.” It’s a complete facial, starting with a deep exfoliation. Next comes a Green Tea mask. High frequency stimulation wakes up the skin to help it look young and bright. It also includes an arm and hand massage! Heaven!

Have you ever gotten a facial, HollywoodLifers?
