There are multiple ways we can wear eyeliner, but a tried-and-true cat eye is what we go for most of the time. Lupita Nyong’o‘s beauty look at the 23rd annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards is the perfect compromise for those who don’t want to give up their flick but want something more unexpected.
Lupita wore a black double flick cat eye. For some extra drama, a bit of sparkle was added to the dramatic eye makeup. Rosy cheeks and a soft plum lip color balanced out the bold eye. The look was created by makeup artist Nick Barose.
Vernon Francois did Lupita’s hair for the event. Her locks were scooped into a high bun and secured with a scrunchie that coordinated with her dress.
Lupita opted for a sparkly brown nail polish on short, rounded nails.
Lupita was styled by Micaela Erlanger in a colorblocked Duoro Oluwu dress. The midi length dress featured contrasting red and blue shimmering panels and a peplum hem. Gold Brian Atwood sandals, a delicate APM Monaco ring and a shimmering gold Yliana Epez clutch completed the look.
