“Shimmer” and “glow” are two words we actively search for when we’re scoping out new beauty products, and this red carpet season has already featured countless radiant looks to recreate in our spare time. Last night’s winner (and the gal we’re seriously crushing on) is Lupita Nyong’o. The actress debuted shimmery eyeshadow, luminous skin and a neutral lustrous lip that’s completely on-trend and worked perfectly with her silver gown.
“I wanted to play off the iridescent sheen of her dress that reminds me of beautiful, sleek serpent by focusing on the shine on eyes and reflect that serpent-like quality with fierce eyeliner and luminous skin,” explained Nyong'o's makeup artist Nick Barose.
