Get The Look:Kate Bosworth, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mary-Kate Olsen and Kirsten Dunst at MET 2012

I can honestly spend hours looking at the close ups of the makeup from the red carpet. It gives a lot of inspiration! This is why I was very excited to look at all the MET Gala photos.

I actually have details on how to get the look of Mary-Kate Olsen, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Bosworth and Kirsten Dunst.

It does not mean that you have to copy their looks but you can use it as your inspiration.
