Amid the tiaras and bold, Gilded Age-inspired silhouettes that graced the Met Gala last night, one beauty trend reigned supreme, appearing on celebrities like Maude Apatow, Gigi Hadid and Lizzo: Bright burgundy lips. A stark contrast from the soft colors actually worn during the turn of the century, this bold detail added a touch of modern drama to classic looks, bringing a sexy, vampy edge to the star-studded red carpet.

From how Hadid’s glam team achieved her layered look to the exact shade of lipstick Lizzo sported all night, here's how the makeup artists behind these looks say they crafted their clients' respective red lips.

When making her Met Gala debut last night, the Euphoria star opted for timeless glamour, arriving to the museum with old-Hollywood-esque waves, long, luscious lashes and a deep red lip. Simple yet classic, it seems the process behind achieving this look also followed a no-frills approach, according to the actress' makeup artist, Kelsey Deenihan. In a social media breakdown of the cosmetics she used on the star, Deenihan said Apatow's bold lip was the result of one product: Armani Beauty's Lip Maestro Liquid Matte Lipstick in the shade Dark Velvet.

But you don't need to splurge on luxury lippies to achieve a show-stopping glam – just ask Hadid's glam team, who tapped products from iconic drugstore brand Maybelline to create her Met Gala makeup.

On Tuesday morning, Maybelline took to Instagram to share a few behind-the-scenes tidbits about the supermodel's look. According to the post, celebrity makeup artist Erin Parsons achieved her bold lip by layering two shades of Super Stay Vinyl Ink Longwear Liquid Lipcolors in Wicked and Red-Hot, leaving Hadid with a sexy, glossy red-carpet-worthy pout.

Hadid wasn't the only celeb who turned to multiple products in creating a stunning custom look. Lizzo's makeup artist Alexx Mayo said creating a rich, vampy lip for the "Juice" songstress was as easy as 1-2, taking to Instagram to reveal elements of his process. After filling in Lizzo's lips with Charlotte Tilbury's Lip Cheat lip pencil in the shade Bad Romance, Mayo said he then applied the brand's Matte Revolution lipstick in Festival Magic. Yet where Hadid's team opted for a gloss, he stuck with lipstick for a sophisticated yet bold final product.
