During awards season we spend more time staring at our favorite beauty mavens on the red carpet than actually watching the show (followed by an obligatory, intense Instagram sweep of the looks we just fawned over live). It’s too hard not to fangirl over breathtaking beauty looks like Lupita Nyong’o’s serpent-inspired red carpet makeup from last week’s red carpet — made up of shimmery eyeshadow, luminous skin and a neutral lustrous lip that we may or may not have attempted to recreate over the weekend.
And since another week means another awards show, here are the ladies we’re crushing on from last night’s event:
"I wanted to give Janelle a timeless and current look at the same time, so I decided to give her a Twiggy 2018 vibe,” explains Monáe’s makeup artist Jessica Smalls. To brighten her appearance, Smalls prepped her skin with Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask. For her bold and sexy eye look, Smalls used an array of Buxom Cosmetics products like Eyeshadow Bar Single Eyeshadows in Lingerie Lover, Haute Couture and LBD. Finally, she hydrated her lips with Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 and used Buxom Cosmetics Full-On Lip Polish in the shade Megan.
