Lupita Nyong’o is not only one amazing actress but she is a pretty stylish lady too. She has been killing it on ALL the red carpets, inspiring people with her stunning looks.
The look she sported at the Oscar’s this weekend was just another example of how she is on another level. We are not worthy.
We know what you’re probably thinking – that you couldn’t ever look this good. But that’s where you’re wrong. Here are our makeup picks to help you nail her perfect award-ceremony beauty look.
Lupita is known for her radiant glow. To make sure that your skin looks as dewy as hers, you need to prep your canvas right. Do this by using a primer that is super hydrating, like the Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer, which contains hyaluronic acid to keep your skin moisturised all day.
After your face has been suitably primed, the next step is to apply your foundation. Steer clear of the matte formulas and instead opt for one that offers a satin finish, like the Sorbet Bare Faced Liquid Foundation. Buildable, fresh and dewy – you’ll be looking like Lupita in no time.
Lupita’s Oscars eyes were reminiscent of lapis lazuli – a rich royal blue with a hint of gold. Use a shimmering blue, such as the Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow in Vega on your lids and a gold highlighter, such as the Maybelline FaceStudio Master Strobing Stick Illuminating Highlighter in Dark on your brow bone. So regal.
No diva would be caught dead with half-assed brows, and Lupita is no exception. This means that it’s important to fill in and define your brows so that they are sufficiently bold, and the Essence Designer Eyebrow Pencil will help you do that.
While the emphasis might be on the eyes with this particular look, that doesn’t mean that you should be neglecting the rest of your face. Give your cheeks a flush of colour with the Revlon Powder Blush in Sultry Sienna and then add some highlighter afterwards to make those cheekbones pop.
Gloss is all the rage at the moment, and it’s a great way to finish off a look, whether it’s on the red carpet or out with friends. The Fenty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer makes your lips even MORE glossy because of the shimmery fragments in the formula. Get ready to get seriously shiny.
