Beauty 101: It-Girl Lupita Nyong'o

Lupita Nyong'o
Award season is in full swing and Lupita Nyong'o has proven to be the red carpet It-Girl! Lupita is truly a beauty! From her glowing skin, toned muscles, gorgeous make-up, edgy hairstyle, and, of course, her amazing outfit choices, she always gets it right! Lupita always goes for a defined brow and a pop of lip color in all her beauty looks as seen above. However, what I love in her beauty look above is the flirty lashes and eye shimmer she adds to the look. This beauty look can easily be dressed up or dressed down with the slight strokes of a make-up brush. All you need to recreate the look is shimmery (cream) eyeshadow, liquid eyeliner, mascara (falsies), a brown lipgloss and lipstick, and an eyebrow pencil. 
  1. Begin with a clean face and apply foundation as needed.
  2. Add soft flush of blush to the apples of the cheek to the temple.
  3. Fill in eyebrows with soft, short strokes that resemble hairs. Be sure to brush through the brows to blend in the marks.
  4. Apply the shimmery eyeshadow, preferably cream shadow, to lower eyelids. 
  5. Line the lower lash line with eyeliner. Then line to the upper lash line with a slight cat eye.
  6. Apply 2-3 coats of mascara. Add false lashes if desired.
  7. Apply lipgloss and lipstck to finish the look.

Do you keep up with award season?
