Even though the Met Gala is technically a fundraiser, it’s unlike any fundraiser we mere mortals have ever seen. Aside from raising money for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, it might just be the most buzzed-about red carpet of the year. Award season is spectacular, but it’s industry-specific: The Grammys brings together celebs in music, whereas the Golden Globes brings together the best of TV and film. The Met Gala, however, corrals celebs from everywhere—film, music, fashion, even sports. In short, it’s an event that moves the cultural zeitgeist for months to come.

So as you can imagine, we wait with bated breath to see these influencers' beauty looks. It’s all in the name of trend-spotting, of course—but as we've learned more about the details of each celeb's hair and makeup, it's clear that trendy doesn’t mean expensive. Year after year, celebs hit the red carpet wearing drugstore products and brands to compliment their couture, and 2017's event was no different. Keep scrolling to see which drugstore products made the cut.
