It’s no secret that Lupita Nyong’o was a stand-out beauty at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Combining her flawless skin, bold brows, and a pop of red lip color, she proved that barely there makeup has officially earned its place as this seasons best look.
“The dress reminded me of Gone With The Wind,” said celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose who is responsible for the actress’ look. “I wanted to go with a red lip; nothing is more glamourous than classic red lips and glowing skin.”
To get Lupita’s 40’s inspired look, Barose started with a damp Beauty Blender and applied Armani Fluid Sheer in 10, and Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation in Suede 540. “Its about blending and making it seamless,” he says. For the eyes, Barose applied Lancome’s Color Design Eye Shadow in Fashion Label and Colour Du Jour and Le Stylo Waterproof Long Lasting Eye Liner in Golden Riviera.
To get a slightly arched and elongated brow, Barose used Lancome Le Sourcil Pro Brow Pencil and Highlighter in Brun.
For Lupita’s lips, Barose first applied Kiehl’s Scented Lip Balm #1 Cranberry, then Lancome’s Le Crayon Lip Contour in Garnet and L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor in Caprice. “I enjoy collaborating with Lupita, he says. “She likes to experiment, and we never used the same lipstick twice. We always switch it up.”
