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.

Lupita Nyong’o In Calvin Klein Collection – 2015 Vanity Fair Party

Lupita Nyong'o In Calvin Klein Collection - 2015 Vanity Fair Party

Hollywood’s golden girl Lupita Nyong’o attended the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party held at Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday (February 22) in Beverly Hills, California.

The actress wore her second Calvin Klein Collection custom dress of the night, stepping on this red carpet in a sleek beaded column creation.

I love that she opted for very few jewels to allow her breath-taking dress to take center stage, with just a dark berry lip rounding out the look.

While the dress is gorgeous, it took me back to Jennifer Lawrence’s Vanity Fair moment, and Naomie Harris’ Cannes moment which were ironically both custom designs by Francisco Costa.

Lupita Nyong’o was also among the stars at the 2015 Oscars at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (February 22) in Hollywood, California.

Her custom Calvin Klein Collection pearl and ivory beaded dress was eye-catching from afar, mainly due to its unique keyhole halter front and strap detailing at the back.

But even more compelling was a closer shot of the design, in which the full extent of its beautifully pearlized embellishment comes into view.

As per usual, she accessorized this masterwork regally with complementary pendant earrings, soft metallic makeup and a crimson lip.

Lupita Nyong’o attended the Weinstein Company & Netflix’s 2015 SAG After-Party held at Sunset Tower on Sunday (January 25) in West Hollywood, California.

She wore her second Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2015 dress of the day, which featured the same print and stripes we saw her wearing at the main event.

I wasn’t that crazy about the first look and I’m even less enthused about this as I wish she had worn something totally different for the party.

This has a buy-one-get-one-free feel to it and lacks imagination, so it’s hard to get excited about seeing a shorter version of the same print twice.

Lupita Nyong'o In Elie Saab - 2015 SAG Awards

Lupita Nyong’o shut down the red carpet at the 2015 SAG Awards hosted at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (January 25).

The actress stunned in a jaw-dropping Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2015 long-sleeve, plunge gown that strongly stood out among the rest.

Featuring an abstract, multihued floral motif struck through with graphic black striping, this creation was an explosion of drama that was only elevated by its full-skirted silhouette.

Art-Deco-inspired Fred Leighton earrings complemented the dress, as did Lupita’s impeccable metallic eye shadow and berry-red lip. Continuing to switch up her styling, she worked a beautifully braided updo this time out.
