Lupita Nyong’o at the Met Gala 2014

She is People Magazine’s “World’s Most Beautiful Person” of the year, and seemingly the Belle of the Ball at this year’s Met Gala.  She is Lupita Nyong’o.  Strutting her stuff in a flapper dress by Prada on the red carpet, she channels a modern-day Josephine Baker.  Celebrity Makeup Artist Nick Barose played up Lupita with a fun mix of purples, pinks and berry colors to compliment her stunning, emerald green gown. 

Want Lupita’s gorge red carpet look?  Read on to find out how you can recreate your own Met Gala look.

Face:  Start off by hydrating the face with Lancome’s Advance Genefique Youth Activating Concentrate, then add a primer to help smooth out lines and make that perfect look last with Lancome La Base Pro Perfecting Makeup Primer.   Apply Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation then, dust off with Lancome Dual Finish Powder & Foundation.  For those rosy cheeks, Armani Maestro Blush 300 is applied on the apples of the cheeks.

Eyes:  Prime the lids first to ensure long-lasting wear with Lancome’s Aquatique Waterproof Eyecolour Base, then apply Lancome Color Design Eye Shadow in Miss Sweetheart D to create a smoky purple eye.  Coat the lashes several times to create volume with Lancome Hypnose Mascara in Black.

Lips:  To complete the look, line the lips with Lancome Le Lipstique Lip Colouring Stick in Sheer Chocolate, then apply Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor in Bordeaux.
