The Trick To Lupita Nyong’o’s Luminous Tony Awards Glow

There were so many incredible moments on last night’s Tony Awards, despite the heavy cloud of the horrific tragedy in Orlando. My two favorite moments of the night? Lin Manuel Miranda’s incredible SONNET SPEECH (let’s bring sonnets back into daily parlance, mmkay?) and Lupita Nyong’o’s gorgeous beauty look, courtesy of Nick Barose. “The look is fresh and summery, with warm orange and coral tones to play off of Lupita’s Hugo Boss dress. For Lupita’s eyes, I used deep blue and navy shades for definition — it’s a softer look that pops against her glowing skin.”

FACE: I believe that every great makeup look needs to start with a good canvas. To prep her skin, I used Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate Serum and Lancôme Advanced Génifique Eye Light Pearl.

To control shine, I applied Lancôme La Base Pro Pore Eraser Mattifying Primer on the T-Zone area. As her foundation, I used Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Makeup Stick in 550 Suede C all over her face and Lancôme Maquicomplet Complete Coverage Concealer in Deep Suede under the eyes and around the mouth. Finally, I used Lancôme Translucence Mattifying Silky Pressed Powder in 550 Suede on the T-Zone area and perimeter of her face.

On the apples of her her cheeks, I used Lancôme Blush Subtil Palette in Rum Raisin, along withLancôme Glow Subtil Silky Crème Highlighter in Rosegold Lights on the top of her cheekbones to highlight.

EYES:To fill in brows and add shape, I used Lancôme Sourcils Gel Waterproof Eyebrow Gel-Cream in 06 Noir. Her eye lids were prepped with Lancôme Aquatique Waterproof Eyecolour Base in 06 Sienne, then dusted with Lancôme Translucence Mattifying Silky Pressed Powder in 550 Suede to set. Across the whole lid, I used Lancôme Color Design Sensational Effects Eyeshadow in Sapphire Lace. Next, I lined her eyes with Lancôme Drama Liqui-Pencil in Parisian Night and Lancôme Grandiôse Liquid Liner in 01 Matte Black. For added drama, I coated her lashes with Lancôme Grandiôse Extreme Mascara in 01 Noire Excès.

LIPS: For moisturized lips, I used Lancôme Absolue Precious Cells Nourishing Lip Balm in Honey-In-Roseto prep, and lined her lips with Lancôme Le Lipstique in Sheer Chocolate. For a pop of coral color, I applied Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge in Sienna Ultime as the finishing touch.
