And after two years of being inside, you might need a little inspiration, whether you are looking for a new date night hairstyle or yearning to change your “going out” makeup. The 2022 MET Gala showed us that the new roaring 20s is here. This year’s costume exhibit is: “In America: An Anthology of Fashion.” And the marching orders from Anna Wintour included a dress code of white tie and gilded glamour. So how does that translate into beauty? We’re living in a Euphoria world and celebrities showed up like stars, literally, with blinding beauty! Whether it was gold foil sweeping across eyelids or bedazzled hair jewels, the beauty looks stand to show up fashion on its biggest night.
