We can debate whether you think Gwyneth Paltrow looked dewy or shiny at last night's Met Ball, but let's face it: You guys will never agree on where the line truly is. It all has to do with your personal tolerance for sheen on skin. But if your line plops her down on the "glowy goddess" side of the fence, then keep reading because I have all the details on the products makeup artist Emma Lovell used on her!

First, let's talk about the glow. She used two products to get it. First, Emma primed the skin using the new Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, which infuses the complexion with 28 skin-softening ingredients as it prepares it for makeup, then followed with Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup in No. 2 shade for a dewy complexion.
For her cheeks, Emma says, "Gwyneth was just in Mexico and got a little color so I wanted to highlight that," she says. So she applied Hourglass Illume Creme-To-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset, putting the bronze shade on the top of the cheekbones, underneath the cheekbones and on the temples and the blush shade on the apples of the cheeks.

For the eyes: Emma started by filling in the brows with MAC Eye Brow Pencil in Fling. She then used the taupe shade from the Hourglass Vol. 6 Eye Shadow Palette all over the socket and underneath the eyes, followed by Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner in Ebony. "Start from the center of the eye lid and draw outwards," she says. After curling the lashes she applied multiple coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara, focusing on the center of the lashes. "You're aiming for a rounded effect-more Bambi-like than cat-eye," she says. For extra drama she finished the eyes with a coat of Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer.

And, finally, for the lips: Emma used Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Creme Lipstick in Fable, a light pink beige. She finished up by blending two shades of Hourglass Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss and applying it over the lipstick. "I wanted a vintage-y pink lip so I combined the Lush and Child shades," she says.
