Mandy Moore Steps Out of Her Comfort Zone at the Met Gala and Looks Amazing

We are still on a high from Monday’s Met Gala! Even though some of the red carpet moments were underwhelming (Kim Kardashian stuck with a nude makeup palette and skipped the jewelry), celebs like Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Cara Delevingne certainly didn’t disappoint with their dramatic looks.

One star who stepped outside of her comfort zone was Mandy Moore. The This Is Us mom sported vibrant lilac eyeshadow with a touch of silver paint at the inner corners and an origami-inspired updo.

The terrific trio behind the A-lister’s glamorous transformation, the Streicher Sisters, told Yahoo Beauty that they’ve never done a bold color like that before on Moore. After brainstorming several shade options to work with her ruffled Michael Kors dress, they decided on lilac because it popped against her olive skin tone and hazel eyes.

“She’s really been pushing the boundaries this season,” says makeup artist Jenn Streicher. “Everybody has been noticing that she’s not the old Mandy Moore; she’s definitely coming into her womanhood and is up for change.”
