Keri Russell and Mathew Rhys Almost Wore Matching Eyeliner to the Met Gala

Makeup artist Tina Turnbow gave us all the details—and a peek at some BTS moments!

While we often get to play a fly on the wall as celebrities and models get prepped for major events, that hardly means we see all. Only said star’s go-to glam team knows what *truly* goes down, from what everyone’s eating before heading out, to the songs that tend to play over and over. That’s why we were thrilled when Keri Russell’s makeup artist, Tina Turnbow, happily shared her Met Gala snaps, giving us the details on that dramatic cat eye...and how Keri’s significant other and The Americans costar, Matthew Rhys, almost ended up with something similar. Get the full scoop straight from Tina ahead.

“What we had all talked about [beforehand] was the fact Rei Kawakubo is into construction, then deconstruction. Brian [Magallones] did her hair in a super messy low pony with pieces coming out, and I wanted to ‘construct’ it with this really dramatic, almost punky black eye. After getting her glow on with Colbert MD Illumino Oil and brightening mask, I used Physicians Formula Cream Eyeliner to shape the eye into a wing and put lots of mascara on the bottom lashes [to make them] chunky.”
