All The Makeup Details From Her SAG Awards Look!

Actress Lupita Nyong’o’s beauty is legendary…and never more so than when the she appeared last night at the 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) as a presenter. The big-screen superstar, and Lancôme Ambassadress, flaunted a stunning iridescent makeup look that’s right at home under the spotlight. Here, makeup artist Nick Barose breaks down all of Lupita’s makeup moves…

The Inspiration: “I wanted to play off the iridescent sheen of her dress that reminds me of a beautiful, sleek serpent by focusing on the shine on eyes and reflect that serpent-like quality with fierce eyeliner and luminous skin,” details makeup artist Barose.

LUMINOUS SKIN: “I prepped Lupita’s skin with Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate Serum. I followed with this Lancôme Advanced Génifique Light Pearl on the eyes. Next, I applied Lancôme La Base Pro primer to magnify the T-zone,” shares Barose. “This is key because the red carpet starts in the afternoon and it’s still sunny and hot!”

BRILLIANT EYES: “I brushed Lancôme Sourcils Brow Gel in Clear to build shape and keep brows nice and groomed then fill them in with Lancôme Sourcils Definis pencil in Noir to make the shape fuller and longer at the ‘tails.’ Next I applied Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara onto the lashes and followed with Lancôme Monsieur Big Eyeliner Marker along the eyelids,” notes the makeup pro. “To smudge the eyeshadow on the lids, I used a damp brush and then applied Lancôme Color Design Eye Shadow in All That Shimmers on the eyelids and brow bones, followed by the Lancôme Color Design Eye Shadow in It List on the outer corners and extend it out a bit for subtle drama.”

LOVELY LIPS: “We prepped Lupita’s lips with Lancôme Absolue Precious Cells Nourishing Lip Balm,” details Barose about Lupita’s SAG Awards lip look. “Then I lined and filled in the lips with Lancôme Le Lipstique in Raisinberry and then topped it off with Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick in Rendez-Vous.
