Get the Glow: Lupita Nyong’o’s Red Carpet Secrets for Glowing Skin

Since capturing the spotlight in 2013 thanks to her role in the film “12 Years a Slave”, Lupita Nyong’o has known how to win over the public thanks to her undeniable charm. Her spectacular red carpet appearances have always been among the most lauded since she knows how to combine the perfect outfit and styling to create an unforgettable look.

Near the release of her anticipated new film, “Black Panther”, Nyong’o return to the award show train at the SAG Awards, and this time her look was decidedly different from what’s she’s being known for in the past. Very fond of bright and vibrant colors
— perfect to highlight her skin tone — Lupita surprised with a gray dress with a much more discreet metallic tone. This time she also went for a very natural makeup, without highlighting her eyes or lips. Luckily, her makeup artists shared her makeup and skincare secrets on Instagram for her beauty-loving fans.

The actress returned to dazzle in a much more subtle way with a very sophisticated style. The luminosity was the key; something that’s quite difficult to achieve, according to experts, because of her dark complexion, but that her makeup team knew how to achieve with great success.

The decision this time was to play with the iridescent sheen of her dress, which reminded many of the skin of a snake. So this was done by adding glitter on her eyelids. So, that’s the sparkling secret: glitter!

For this look the prep work was very important. Her team always designs a small sketch in advance, so they’ll have an idea of .£.£how they want the makeup to look, and have some alternatives that are ready according to the evolution of the work, since you cannot always be 100% sure of an idea.

Very satisfied of the work done with the Oscar-winning actress, the makeup team posted an image on social media showing off the magnificent result, while giving the final touches of rouge to her face. If you wish to follow this step, remember that it’s important to apply it at the end, when you can see final result, so you can be sure it does not seem too exaggerated.

#BTS Last look on @lupitanyongo @sagawards 💁🏽‍♂️✨✨✨ Always start with as little blush as possible without brightening up the cheeks right away, I always decide later how much blush i want once I see the final look with the accessories and everything, this way you can be sure it’s not too much blush, too much blush can instantly make any make up appears heavy or overdone so go easy and adjust later if need be. Her shade @lancomeofficial Blush Subtil Oil Free in Petit Pomegranate , a beautiful, rich, deep tone that’s when applied with a light touch on apples of cheeks, it looks really natural on dark skin. #lupitanyongo #blackpanther #Nakia #lancome #LancomeRedCarpet #makeup #beauty #blush @xclusiveartists Photo by @vernonfrancois 📸
