Elle Fanning and Simone Ashley have these two skin care products in common

And they made headlines at the Met Gala

Content Producer / May 07 2024

ICYMI: the 2024 Met Gala has officially been and gone. It all went by in a complete whirlwind of mesmerising outfits, incredible hairstyles and beautiful makeup. With each jaw-dropping look, we were left wondering, how does their skin look so effortlessly dewy? 

Well, we’ve come to the realisation that, at the end of the day, it’s all about what you put under your makeup that counts. So, while the stars spend the lead up to the big day prepping their skin with all the rejuvenating treatments, what we’re really interested in is, what are they putting on their skin while in the makeup chair? 

And we’re in luck because we were able to get a glance at the behind-the-scenes skin-prepping steps for many of the stars. And while we stalked their makeup artists' Instagrams, we came to the realisation that some celebs shared the same skin care routines. 

It turns out both Elle Fanning and Simone Ashley are certified L'Oréal-lovers, with their skin care routines almost mirroring one another’s. We took a deeper dive into their glam squads’ posts to find out exactly what they used to give the ladies their glorious glow…

Elle Fanning 2024 Met Gala Skin Prep

We’re not sure about you, but we personally think Elle Fanning can do no wrong – did she ‘win’ the Met Gala? Maybe. And we aren’t ashamed to admit that when we first saw her step out on the Met Gala (green) carpet, we went into a glowing skin-centric frenzy. We spent a significant amount of time obsessing over just how radiant she looked, and we’ve since found out the luminous all-over glow was thanks to the L'Oréal True Match Lumi Glotion in ‘901’ ($37.97 at iHerb). But once we let our eyes adjust to her general presence, we realised we needed to know exactly how she got her face to look equally as glossy. 

Undeniably, makeup artists hold all the celeb secrets, and for Fanning, we knew we could turn to her longtime makeup artist Erin Ayanian Monroe for the inside goss. 

Monroe started Fanning’s prep by taking the ultra-hydrating L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Filler 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid Serum ($54.99 at Priceline) across her face. For an extra layer of hydration (Fanning has been known to suffer from dry skin), Monroe used a ‘light’ layer of L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Filler Water-Cream ($59.99 at Priceline). And as quickly as her skin prep routine started, it ended. Turns out Fanning’s natural beauty can speak for itself.

Simone Ashley 2024 Met Gala Skin Prep

While the ever-rising star may have made some skin care faux pas before, she’s luckily turned towards trusty (and celeb-loved) L'Oréal for her latest red carpet-ready, skin-prep routine. Ashley’s skin care routine was almost identical to Fanning’s with the slight exception of one product. Hung Vanngo (Ashley’s makeup artist of choice) opted to add in (on top of Fanning's routine) a hydrating hit of nourishing eye serum (fittingly from the same Revitalift list).

We can see why Vanngo chose the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Filler 2.5 Percent Hyaluronic Acid Eye Serum ($54.99 at Adore Beauty) as it features a skin-depuffing, rolling wand that helps to work the serum in deeper. And if the after photos of Ashley’s look are anything to go by, the serum worked an absolute treat. 

Don’t mind us as we go through our notes. Celeb-loved, tick. Ultra-convienient, tick. Skin-loving, tick. It seems to us like a no-brainer; we’ve got to get our hands on the Revitalift range…
