We love a star that shares her secrets and none are more interesting to us than our beloved Lupita Nyong’o’s – the famed Kenyan actress, known for her style as much as her gorgeous, glowing beauty. And, while she has previously imparted her lip balm and hair secrets (read about them, here and here), the current face of Lancome is now sharing the secret behind her recent radiant makeup look, spied at the 7th Annual Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic event.
Quite a number of critics were focused on how close Lupita and Dakota Johnson came to wearing the same outfit, but we at SPICE were amongst those glued to her gorgeous blue-toned makeup and nails, and were scrupulously searching for products to recreate the look – so you can imagine our joy when the star revealed they came courtesy of Lancome (obviously).
Lupita posted the details to her Instagram, saying;
“My make-up artist extraordinaire, Nick Barose, used this @lancomeusa “Midnight Rush” #ColorDesign eye shadow for my #VeuveClicquotPoloClassic look.#SummerRush”
…And captioning this shot, the star said;
“@lancomeusa + #AlexanderMcqueen = #PoloClassic”
While we at SPICE are heading off to Lancome to get our replica Lupita look, here’s how one might get this look for less;
MAC’s “Blue Flame” eyeshadow, ($21) and Essie’s “Aruba Blue” nail polish ($8.50) are perfect dupes for Lupita’s look… Try it and show your attempts via @SPICETVAFRICA and the hashtag #ITried.
