Lupita Nyong'o may have opted for an off-the-shoulder orange gown at the 2017 Met Gala, but no color was off limits for her eye shadow. The stunning actress got ready with Lancome and makeup artist Nick Barose, where he turned her eyes into an actual watercolor painting. Nick told POPSUGAR he used Lancome Color Design Eye Shadows in Miss Sweetheart D, A Touch of Coral, All That Shimmers, and Exhibition. He said that he "smudged a variety of shades and textures to create a dramatic look in touches of bold fuchsia, purple, blue, peach, and yellow."
With Lupita in such a bright, floral-colored gown, Nick said that he "wanted to play on the dress's embellishments without making the makeup too delicate or ladylike. There's a certain roughness and spontaneity to the bold color strokes, so I created smudges on the eyes using many different colors, while keeping the rest of the face polished to balance out the look."
