Lupita 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.
