Lupita Nyong'o Makeup at New York Fashion Week 2014

Ace Lupita Nyong'o's Colorful Makeup Look

Lupita Nyong'o only went to one show during New York Fashion Week, but her appearance made a huge splash. She paired her beautiful, pastel Calvin Klein outfit with equally bright makeup and her signature Afro. To create the ultraviolet eye look, makeup artist Nick Barose used a small eyeliner brush to sweep Votre Vu Palette Play in Violette ($29). He then swirled Lancome Blush Subtil in Aplum ($30) around the apples of her cheeks and applied two coats of Ck One Color Lipstick in Wanted ($16).

Her hair was kept simple. Ted Gibson focused on her mane's shape, using two shine lotions mixed with a strong holding wax to keep it in place. He then pressed hot towels onto her hair — a great technique for ladies with natural hair to avoid that "halo effect" of flyaways after they pick their Afros. A spritz of hair spray kept things in place. And our Lupita lovefest continues. . .
