Start Your New Year Right with Lupita Nyong-o’s Glowing Look



Who: Lupita Nyong'o

Where: The Palm Springs International Film Festival

Why we like it: If you read our roundup of favorite beauty stars of last year, you'll recognize this rising starlet as one of our breakout beauty icons of 2013. We love this look because it's a little bit different. A shimmery eye and glossy lip might seem mundane to most, but we love her peachy-gold eye and watermelon lip.  

How to get it at home: Lupita's skin is enviable even on its worst day, but for those of us without that natural glow, we recommend Lancome's Teint Visionnaire Skin Correcting Makeup Duo ($60) which comes with a concealer to hide stubborn blemishes or dark marks. Next, get her shaped and groomed brows with Anastasia's Dipbrow Pomade ($18) which can double as an eyeliner, but in this case results in a clean, defined brow line.

Get Lupita's shimmery eye with Bobbi Brown's Nude Eye Palette ($50) using the shade Ballet Pink Sparkle for the inner third and blending out with Cement Sparkle. Her large false lashes may be a bit much for everyday, but if you want to enhance yours in a more subtle way, try Make Up For Ever's Eyelashes – Individual ($16) and apply them to the outer third of your lash line. Last but not least, finish your look with a slick of Dior's Dior Addict Gloss in 643 Diablotine ($29.50) which is a shimmery melon shade perfect for brightening up this look.
