“I was inspired to do something that paid homage to the beauty of Africa,” details celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose about the gold-dotted brows worn by actress Lupita Nyong’o to the “Queen of Katwe” movie premiere in Johannesburg, South Africa. Paired with subtle, smoky eyes, it’s a look that truly belongs on the red carpet…or one you can copy to make a dramatic entrance on your own! Here’s how Barose crafted the effect:

Step 1: Fill in brows with a bold, dark color so that the gold from the dots will really stand out. “I used Lancôme Sourcils Gel in 06 Noir on Lupita,” details Barose.

Step 2: Using the metallic gold shade, from the Lancôme Color Design 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Kissed by Gold, create dots with a small, pointy eyeliner brush.

Step 3: With a larger brush, apply bigger dots at the inner corners and half way through switch to a smaller brush—so that the dots gradually shift from large to small, following the natural brow shape. Keep the dots delicate and precise.
