Not only does Lupita Nyong’o do amazing red carpet dresses, she also has flawless makeup – just like at the Calvin Klein A/W 2014 show at New York Fashion Week (pictured with front row buddy Naomi Watts!). Here’s how celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose created her gorgeous, tropical makeup.

Lupita’s lovely pop of plum comes from Lancome Blush Subtil in Aplum applied to the apples of the cheeks.

It’s often hard to match colourful eyes with bright lips, but Nick makes it work, applying Votre Vu Palette Play in the shade Violette on Lupita’s beautiful eyes.

Nick used ck one color pure color lipstick in 410 Wanted to achieve Lupita’s vibrant coral lips – such a pretty look for summer!
