Award season is finally upon us, which means one thing: We’re going to be seeing a lot more of Lupita Nyong’o. But trust us, we aren’t complaining.
The Academy Award-winning actress made her return to the red carpet at the Golden Globes last week, blooming in a Giambattista Valli haute couture dress adorned in purple floral embellishments and purple eyeshadow to match.
Her eye makeup not only came courtesy of Lancôme—of which she is the face—but it’s a shade included in an eye palette Lupita named herself and unveiled in a brand new advertisement. She revealed on Instagram:
Jacaranda Bloom because it immediately reminded me of growing up with the Jacaranda trees that lined the field hockey pitches of my elementary school. In February the flowers would rain onto the red soiled field and create a beautiful and delicate purple trimming around it. The earth tones and the purple created an unforgettable image.
