Get The Look: Lupita Nyong’o’s Modern Glam Oscars Beauty Look

lupita2Lupita Nyong’o dazzled in pearl embellished Calvin Klein Collection dress at Sunday evening’s 2015 Oscar Awards red carpet. With such an elegant custom gown, it was only natural for Celebrity Makeup Artist Nick Barose to create an equally stunning beauty look.

While keeping the eyes soft and polished, Nick concentrated on enhancing her radiant skin and topping off the look with a stunning Old Hollywood deep red lip. The final look featured elements of classic Hollywood beauties while playing up Lupita’s best features.

Here’s how to get her glowing modern classic Hollywood look.

Well prepped skin is an essential step for this look. Nick began by blending Lancôme Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate onto Lupita’s skin and Lancôme Genifique Eye Light Pearl Eye Illuminating Youth Activating Concentrate over the under eye area. To ensure a flawless base, he primed the skin with Lancôme La Base Pro Perfecting Makeup Primer.

Once skin was fully hydrated and primed, Nick applied a neatly blended layer of Lancôme Miracle Cushion Liquid Cushion Compact in 500 (launching April 2015). For a more precise and flawless finish, Nick corrected any imperfections along the skin with a blend of Lancôme Le Duo Stick in Suede and Lancôme Le Corrector Pro Concealer Kit in 550.

Once the skin was perfected, Nick moved onto the eyes. For a more prolonged wear, Nick prepped Lupita’s lids with Lancôme Aquatique Waterproof Eyecolor Base in Sienne #5. Moving onto color, Nick created a subtle neutral look using Lancôme Color Design 5-Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Gris Fumee and lined the both lash lines with Lancôme Artliner in Noir and Lancôme Le Stylo Waterproof Eyeliner in Noir.

Nick began by moisturizing the lips with Kiehl’s Lip Balm. For that beautiful rich vintage color, Nick lined Lupita’s lips with Lancôme Le Lipstique Lip Coloring Stick in Sheer Chocolate and topped it off with a swipe of Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor in Aubergine Velvet.

Elsa Hosk In Camilla and Marc & Alessandra Ambrosio In Jonathan Simkhai - The Victoria's Secret Swim Special Event

Following in Jasmine Tookes and Lily Aldridge’s footsteps, Victoria’s Secret Angels Elsa Hosk and Alessandra Ambrosio celebrated the sexiest push-ups and The Victoria’s Secret Swim Special at the Victoria’s Secret Herald Square store on Wednesday (February 25) in New York City in colour-coordinated blush tones.

Elsa Hosk: The blonde beauty wore a Camilla and Marc strapless number given an edge with black piping turning down the dial on the inherent sweet nature of the frock, which is further boosted by her black Alexandre Birman suede ‘Clarita’ sandals.

Alessandra Ambrosio: As always Alessandra was serving up pure sass, wearing a Jonathan Simkhai knit sports bra and pencil skirt, which has already had several outings courtesy of Maria Menounos, Beyoncé Knowles and Emily Ratajkowski. The sexy tonal look was completed with Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals.

Gabrielle Union In Sachin & Babi – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Gabrielle Union In Sachin & Babi - The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Gabrielle Union made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ on Tuesday (February 24) to promote her new TV show, ‘Being Mary Jane’.

The actress was looking as smoking hot as ever wearing a Sachin & Babi dress from the Fall 2014 collection that was a mesmerising vision of alluring colour-blocking, which gave the look a sophisticated edge while the print – with the plunging neckline – boosted the feminine flair.

Simply styled with Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, a plump red lip rounded out this gorgeous after-dark look.

Kate Bosworth In Angel Sanchez – The Coca-Cola Bottle: An American Icon At 100 Exhibition

Kate Bosworth In Angel Sanchez  - The Coca-Cola Bottle An American Icon At 100 Exhibition

Kate Bosworth attended The Coca-Cola Bottle: An American Icon at 100 exhibition held at the High Museum of Art on Thursday (February 26) in Atlanta, Georgia.

Angel Sanchez presents an exacting standard of silhouette-centric tailoring in this Fall 2015 gold metallic turtleneck dress with futuristic tendencies.

What I like about this is that it’s not a typical Kate Bosworth dress, but by the same token I’m not a fan of how the high neckline gives her a bobble-head effect.

Her styling was on point with a black Rauwolf clutch and black Aquazzura ‘Matilde’ pumps – a favourite of Emma Stone – complementing the solid black back panel of her dress, but overall I’m not a fan of this dress on Kate.

Rita Ora & Kim Kardashian In Atsuko Kudo – Mert & Marcus House of Love Party for Madonna

Rita Ora & Kim Kardashian In Atsuko Kudo - Mert & Marcus House of Love Party for Madonna

Rita Ora attended the Mert & Marcus House of Love party for Madonna held at Annabel’s on Thursday (February 26) in London, England.

Going from sultry in Zuhair Murad Couture at the BRIT Awards, on this occasion she wore a skin-tight pink latex dress from Atsuko Kudo.

Sadly for her, Kim Kardashian had the same idea, wearing a high-neck version of the same dress, which she styled with PVC strap sandals and a fur stole.

Who wore it better? Neither, I would say. This constraining fetish-wear garment does not look especially breathable or comfortable and perhaps should be confined to a boudoir rather than the red carpet.
