Lupita Nyong’o MTV Movie Awards


Last night, Lupita Nyong’o looked gorgeous the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. I was loving her young, colorful dress and thought it was the perfect occasion. As always though, I was focused on her makeup, which was flawless. I loved that she wore her glasses while presenting and thought her eyes still really popped behind her frames (stay tuned for my glasses look coming soon!). I wanted to try to recreate her look and this is how it turned out!

The Inspiration:


The Look:


Lupita’s eyeshadow wasn’t smoked out so I kept my outer corner defined. 1. I used Unmentionables from the  Too Faced Naked Eyeshadow Palette all over the lid and my lower lash line. 2. With the same palette, I deepened the crease with Stiletto and brought it down to the outer third of my lower lash line 3. I dusted MICA mineral eyeshadows in 26 all over for sparkle. 4. I concentrated another MICA mineral eyeshadow in 34 on the center of my lid.


For my lips, I combined a coral/orange with a reddish berry to try and match Lupita’s lip color. I used Benefit’s Coralista on my cheeks to tie it all together. I pulled by hair back into a tight but messy pony to try and imitate Lupita’s pixie cut and threw on a colorful top!


Did you watch the show? What were you favorite looks from the MTV Movie Awards?
