If Instagram is any indication, getting ready for the Met Gala is a marathon effort (and that’s just the stuff the stars are willing to let us see). Far from a simple hair and make-up job, these days, any celebrity worth their social following adheres to a strict pre-event regimen encompassing rigorous exercise routines, diet and skincare.
The one beauty treatment everyone seemed to be indulging in pre-Met? 24-carat gold face masks.
Kate Hudson and Stella McCartney did the treatment together, posting this cute selfie:
While across town, Bella Hadid and date Alexander Wang did the same:
We can’t say for sure, but we suspect their mask of choice was the famed Mimi Luzon 24-carat gold face mask, which literally all the Victoria’s Secret models used pre-show last year.
For around $405 a pop, the masks purport to hydrate, brighten, refine skin’s texture and reduce redness.
If the glowing visages of Bella, Kate and Stella are a guide, the gold treatment did just that.
