Get the Look: Lupita Nyong’o’s Vibrant Makeup

February 26, 2014

We love how Lupita Nyong’o isn’t afraid to wear colour, like at the 2014 NAACP Image Awards when she took home Best Supporting Actress. Here’s how celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose created her vibrant, tropical makeup that  looks so pretty for late summer parties.

“The  look was monochromatic with bronze, orangey tones to go with her dress. I filled in her brows, and for her eyes I wanted a slight disco feel, so I blended a few bronzy shades from the Dior 5 Colour Eyeshadow in Earth Reflection, using the pointy part of the sponge tip applicator to apply, and blended the coppery shade in the inner corners toward centre of the lids.

“I then smudged the black Dior Mono Eyeshadow in Khôl into the crease as well as the outer corners create a bit of a winged look.”

“On lips, to keep with the bronze theme I stained her mouth with the red Diorific Lipstick in Dolce Vita and then I added the shimmery bronze Dior Addict Gloss in Paradise on the centre of lips for added drama.”
