Fans of the show also noticed Yara is taking a page from her TV mom Tracee Ellis Ross's style book. Tracee is known for rocking big curls, statement earrings, and a bold lip color. Others felts like she was having a Diana Ross moment. Either way, we're super into it.

Yara Shahidi Looking Stunning at the 2018 SAG Awards
"I wanted to incorporate the chic, subtle looks you often see on runways," Yara's makeup artist Emily Cheng for Chanel told POPSUGAR. "Beautiful, soft skin and lightly defined eyes. However, to add a pop of color and a touch of drama, we finished with a stunning red/burgundy lip. When all other features are kept softer, the one you highlight really stands out. That is what we were going for."
The Chanel Makeup Used on Yara
"The lips were definitely the focus!" Emily confirmed. To prep Yara's pout, Emily coated them with Chanel Hydra Beauty Nourishing Lip Care. "I let it sit for 15 minutes before using a hot towel to remove excess product," she added.
New Chanel Lip Products That Yara Wore For the SAG Awards
Here is the exact breakdown for what Yara had on her lips:
"I lined her lips with Le Crayon Lèvres Precision Lip Definer in Séduction," Emily said. "I mixed Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Pirate and Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in Erik on a tray and applied the color on her lips using a brush. In the center of her lips, I did a light dab of the new Poudre a Lèvres Lip Balm and Powder Duo in Rosso Parthenope (pictured) and blended outwards. I finished with Rouge Coco Gloss Moisturizing Glossimer Caractère to give depth to the look."

Emily worked her magic on Yara. "When mixing two lipsticks, it's important to let the first color set for a second, before applying the second color. For such a long night, layering color is always a good way to go!"
She also played around with eye-product texture. "It was fun to throw a touch of gloss on the eyes; in some photos it stands out and looks so luxurious and really ties in with the lip," she said.
