Today is the first day of May – and you know what that means: Met Gala!

In less than 24 hours, all eyes will be on the red carpet for the most glamorous and extravagant outfits, accessories, and beauty look.  From the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna to Kim Kardashian, there will be no dearth of fashion and beauty inspiration.

As it is the biggest fashion event of the year, A-list celebrities, “it” girls, and industry insiders have been doing the prep months in advance before the main event. In the lead up to the most infamous red carpet, we look at the behind-the-scenes beauty prep, courtesy of the most sought-after skin care gurus.
