Lupita, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways.
Because we’re obsessed with all things Lupita, we’ve called in our resident makeup expert Myrna Daher to help us emulate her look for the Oscars. Keep on reading for tips on how to be an award-winning beauty like Lupita…
Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o is more than talented. She is absolutely stunning and everyone is raving about her, from her speech to her dress, and for good reason. Not only was her Prada gown gorgeous, but her makeup was just as stunning.
SKIN: Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Sin Enhancer
Not only does she have a beautiful complexion, it was glowing and completely flawless. Unfortunately Lupita’s complexion doesn’t come in a bottle, but you can use the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Sin Enhancer to perfect your skin and have you camera ready.
BLUSH: Make Up Forever HD Blush
Lupita’s cheeks were slightly enhanced, and with such a pretty deep pigmented skin tone, you can incorporate bold colors. Apply this new HD blush Second Skin from Make Up Forever. This creamy blush has build-able coverage that is long-lasting and looks extremely natural.
HIGHLIGHTER: Guerlain Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder
Apply a highlighter to give the skin luminosity. Try using Guerlain’s Terracotta sheer powder to get a natural glow and enhance your cheeks.
Lupita had beautiful filled brows, which gave her face definition. Use the new Dipbrow Pomade from Anastasia Beverly Hills to achieve the look. It is a waterproof brow color that is great for sculpting and carving a brow shape. It’s also camera-ready and holds through humidity and is great for oily skin, too!
For eyes, use a natural tone that best suites your complexion, just as Lupita did. Bobbi Brown makes great matte colors similar to the one Lupita wore. Finish the eyes with your favorite mascara. My personal favorite is Givenchy’s Phenomen’Eyes Mascara. It will hit all of your lashes, and it’s great for all eye shapes.
Last thing that we cannot forget is lips. Lupita’s lips look hydrated and pulled her look together. Use Muse from Hourglass cosmetics for a long-wearing hydrating lip with great pigment to prevent reapplying.
