Makeup: Tonight’s makeup for Melania Trump for the 2012 Met Gala was created by Celebrity Makeup Artist Nicole Bryl, Make-Up New York.
“Since this year the empasis was on hair & dress for Melania I kept makeup simple: warm, matte & chic with a minimal clean smokey eye pop and a touch of pink stain on lips. We ampt up the body bling so her legs would stand out against the short white dress she is wearing.”

Hair: For The Met Gala Melania Trump’s hair was styled by Mordechai Alvow. To complement the structured long sleeves and high neck of the Marc Bouwer dress she is wearing her hair was swept up in the front and back. To add a waterfall effect to her profile, Alvow created fresh and fun bangs with a high crown that looks structured yet fun and easy allowing for lots of movement. From the back her hair looks slick, straight and thick.
To archive this look Alvow started by spraying YAROK Feed Your Ends Leave In Conditioner to make sure the ends are kept shiny. To hold up the do and leave the hair thick and full he continued by adding YAROK Feed Your Roots Mousse to the roots of the hair. After he blows the hair dry with a round brush and then puts the rollers in the hair and lets it sit for 30 minutes.
When he takes the rollers out he starts by lightly teasing the crown and bangs and takes the hair left in the sides and back and pulls them up to give a hold under to where the pieces fall on top. He finished with YAROK Feed Your Hold hair spray, which is light and lets the hair move. He quickly flat irons the entire head creating the “water fall” look.
This look represents Melania’s clean modern and chic image. It is the new version of modern 90’s Thierry Muguler super model era.
