Get the Look: Lupita Nyong'o's Monochromatic Makeup

Lupita Nyong'o has been slaying the red carpet with her daring fashion and beauty choices all awards season long. We're especially fond of the way her makeup artist, Nick Barose, coordinates her makeup to her gowns. So chic! For the NAACP Image Awards (for which she won the award for Best Supporting Actress), Barose really outdid himself in the matchy-matchy department. Nyong'o's monochromatic look featured stunning hues of bronze and orange to go with her textured Givenchy gown. Here's how he created the look.

    Eyeshadow

    "I wanted a slight disco feel, so I blended a few bronzy shades from the Dior 5 Colour Eyeshadow in Earth Reflection, using the pointy part of the sponge tip applicator to apply, and blended the coppery shade in the inner corners toward center of lids."

    "I then smudged the black Dior Mono Eyeshadow in Khôl into the crease as well as the outer corners to create a bit of a winged look."
