It was a night of glamour at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere as stars came out to support the highly anticipated movie. See the red carpet here.

Even though the red carpet was filled with celebrity favourites, there was one star who stole the show – Lupita Nyong’o. The Lancôme ambassadress looked stellar in a silver & green embellished dress by Alexandre Vauthier Couture, and galactic makeup by Lancôme’s Nick Barose.

According to the stellar makeup artist – “We went for old Hollywood glamour complete with red lips and winged liner, but with an unexpected twist. The addition of an intense metallic silver liner created an element that made the look both classic and futuristic.

Lupita was a vision in her glistening outfit, and we have all the details on her makeup.

For Lupita’s skin, the Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate, the Miracle Cushion Liquid Cushion Compact in 555 Suede & the Translucence Mattifying Silky Pressed Powder in 550 Suede were used to create an even and matte finish that looked flawless.

Her eyes were definitely a selling point with a metallic silver eyeliner that paid homage to the stars. Nick used the Lancôme Color Design 5 Pan Color Palette in Style Section, the Sourcils Gel Waterproof Eyebrow Gel-Cream in Noir to add some depth to her brows, the Artliner Liquid Eye Liner in Noir, the Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eye Liner in Lumiere and a Hypnôse Mascara in Black for flirty lashes.

Lupita’s cheeks were given a lush touch with the Lancôme Blush Subtil in Shimmer Petite Pomegranate and the Le Duo Stick in Suede. While her lips, which stole the show, was covered in the L’Absolu Rouge Lip Color in Absolute Rouge and the Le Lipstique Lip Colouring Stick in Sheer Chocolate.

Her hair was made jet black with sleek edges and a tousled top. The aspect we love the most is the faux hair attché on the side of her head.

Lupita has been dubbed a style & beauty icon and judging from this amazing look, we don’t think she’s going to be stopping soon.

    No offense to her, but I think the make up is too gaudy for the dress | the two are clashing. I think she should have used more toned-down / neutral colours to compliment the dresses shimmer.

      My dear,she got it all wrong this time.
      Is that her hair with some cheap looking attachment/ extension?

    I don’t understanding the make-up. Was it intentional for the powder abi na foundation to not be properly blended? *confused*.
