We loved Lupita Nyong’o’s look at the Calvin Klein Fashion Show for New York Fashion Week on Feb. 13. Her makeup looked absolutely perfect with her pastel pink dress. We have her exact makeup and hair look below — get it here!

30-year-old Lupita Nyong’o has been rocking the red carpet and has now smashed it at New York Fashion Week. We’re loving her bold hair and makeup choices at events. We spoke to her hair and makeup artists — find out the exact products used on Lupita below!

Lupita Nyong’o: Makeup At Calvin Klein — Get Her Vibrant, Colorful Look

Makeup Artist Nick Barose did a stunning job for Lupita’s front row foray. He posted an Instagram post telling us about the entire beauty look!

Lupita’s bright purple eyes and gorgeous pink lips looked amazing. It’s difficult to rock purple eyeshadow without looking like you’ve been punched in the eye, however, Nick did a fantastic job on Lupita. To achieve the purple eye look, he used the Votre Vu Palette Play in the shade Violette.

For her glowing plum cheeks, Lancome Blush Subtil in the color Aplum was brushed onto the apples of her cheeks.

Perfect for the Calvin Klein fashion show, Nick grabbed ck one color pure color lipstick in 410 Wanted. Ck lipsticks are very light and creamy on the lips. He applied two layers of this lipstick because it was quite sheer — however, it’s very build-able.

We adore this amazing makeup look on Lupita! It really  complimented her light pink Calvin Klein dress.

Lupita’s Classic Hairdo

Simple and classic. Lupita didn’t do anything fancy to her hair whatsoever! She kept it clean and sleek — we love how it brings out the vibrant colors in her makeup as well as the color of her dress. 

Hairstylist Ted Gibson styled Lupita’s hair for the show and tells

“Calvin Klein’s aesthetic is all about minimalism, so I wanted to keep her hair simple and chic to make her gorgeous face the focal point and compliment her beautiful dress from his collection. I focused on her hair’s shape, texture and shine. For Lupita’s hair, I started off using 2 shine lotions mixed with a strong holding wax. After applying that to her hair I pressed hot towels to her head to calm flyways and give shine. I finished with hairspray to hold it in place. Lupita proves that simple, classic beauty never goes out of style.”
