The Met Gala 2011 Trend: Deep Red Lips

By Behind The Scenes Makeup @BTSMakeup

While the dresses were predominately nude, the lips at the 2011 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala were anything but!

Bold lips have been on our trend forecast  for Spring (here) ever since they popped up all over the S/S 2011 runways. While the celebs definitely rocked the bold at the Met Gala, I just expected a little brightness as well. Emma Stone and Elizabeth Banks (below) went all out with the brights, but many of the other stars opted for deep red lips.
