Inside Lupita Nyongo’s Stunning Beauty Tribute to Africa for the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Premiere


Said future came in the form of vibranium eyes, which Barose achieved using Lancôme’s Holiday 2022 Eye & Face Palette to create a wash of worthy metallics. As for the past and present and their more terrestrial colorways, those could be found pressed of cheeks and lips, the actor’s pout painted with L’Absolu Rouge in 118 French Coeur, “the perfect terracotta tone that pops but is still earthy,” according to Barose. Nyong’o’s sculptural updo, a crown of macrame and cowrie shells, was crafted by Vernon François and provided an appropriately regal finish. 

“I feel grounded and happy to be finally sharing this movie with the world,” says Nyong’o of the evening. And, of her beauty: “I love working with Nick because he always takes inspiration from our experiences together. With this look, he has captured both my homeland and Wakanda in the colors and tones.”
