We love watching Uzo play Crazy Eyes on ‘Orange Is The New Black,’ but we love seeing her glammed up even more! She looked stunning at the 2015 Emmys — get her exact makeup below!
Uzo Aduba‘s gorgeous makeup at the Emmys on Sept. 20 was inspired by Grace Kelly and created by her go-to makeup artist Janice Kinjo. All her makeup was under $25 — shop it below!
Janice Kinjo used SheaMoisture Cosmetics to get the look and told HollywoodLife.com:
“To complement Uzo’s elegant, intricately hand-painted gown, I created a makeup look that embodied the epitome of classic beauty. Long, lush lashes enhanced her subtly smokey eyes and defined brows, while I kept the rest of the makeup extra dewy and natural for a flawless finish.”
“I started by applying SheaMoisture Sheer Liquid Foundation in Montego Toffee to highlight the under-eye area, T-Zone and bridge of the nose. Then, I applied the shade in Ka’u Brown Blaze for a subtle contour before blending both shades with Canoa Espresso for a seamless finish. To set foundation, I used SheaMoisture Wet/Dry Pressed Powder in Yala Golden, focusing on the high parts of the face the lighter foundation was applied. Then, I applied SheaMoisture Perfecting Face Powder Duo inDeep to the contours of the face, setting the deeper-toned foundation. I applied SheaMoisture Lip/Cheek Balm in Avignon Rose as a base before setting with SheaMoisture Mineral Blush in Annecy Maroon for a natural, rosy flush on the cheeks.

For her eyes, Janice said: “I filled in Uzo’s brows using the two shades and setting wax within SheaMoisture The Perfect Brow Kit in Brown. I then applied SheaMoisture Color Correcting, Contouring and Highlighting Palette in Medium to further shape and define brows. Using a wet eyeshadow brush, I applied the matte brown shade from SheaMoisture Rich Earth Palette in combination with SheaMoisture Wet/Dry Eyeshadow in Claudia to create a soft, smokey eye. Then, I added a pop of shimmer to the inner corner of the eyes with SheaMoisture Wet/Dry Eyeshadow in Cassandra. Lastly, I coated lashes with SheaMoisture Lengthening Mascara in Black for a fluttery lash look.
For the lips, “I first primed lips with a bit of foundation for a truly nude, matte base. Then the ultra-moisturizing and natural nude SheaMoisture Lip Crayon in Calixta was applied to the lips as the finishing touch to this classic, effortless beauty look.”
