The Trick To Uzo Aduba’s Modern Roman Royalty Makeup Moment

Janice Kinjo for Kiehl’s Since 1851 created Uzo Aduba’s SAG Awards appearance. The inspiration? Modern Roman royalty. DEEP! Here’s how Janice created this cosmetics effect, in her words.

“I started with Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing and Radiance Masque to brighten and hydrate her skin. After washing it off, I used Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate and sealed it with Kiehl’s Ultra Deep Moisture Balm to add hydration to her skin. It made her skin so supple and dewy. Then, I used Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado so that her makeup would not crease under her eyes. Lastly, I put on Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 to hydrate her lips.”

“I was inspired by Uzo’s goddess-like emerald green dress so, I swiped Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in #6 just to have a hint of green on her eyes. I smoked it out with Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow in Matte Black, and then filled in her eyebrows with MAC Eye Brows in Stud. I finished with Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara.

On her skin, I used Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #10 to highlight, BlackUp Foundation in HC12 to contour, and set it with BlackUp’s Loose Powder in PL14.

Since there was so much color on her eyes and dress, I decided to keep her lips neutral pink and used ColourPop’s Chilly Chili matte lipstick.”
