Lupita Nyong’o graced the red carpet at the 2018 ACE Awards wearing glittering eye jewelry to accessorize her canary yellow Caroline Herrera dress with matching bird earrings.
Makeup artist Nick Barose embellished Lupita’s heavy makeup with sapphire and emerald-colored Swarovski crystals for a look that he called “glamour with a touch of quirk.” Nick said Lupita’s makeup was inspired by gay Pride month.
