With less than a week left ‘til the holiday season’s true kickoff, there’s officially no more grumbling about those who’ve already decorated in anticipation. In fact, if anything, this time of year’s festivity is an ideal excuse to go all-out on everything fun: parties, decorations, outfits, and, of course, makeup and hair moments. Lupita Nyong’o’s always set the bar high with her aesthetic choices — her latest Met Gala look is worthy of a coffee table book alone! — but her festive makeup at a recent event is like a roadmap to holiday beauty perfection. Lupita Nyong’o’s makeup, with rhinestones arranged in a constellation-like pattern just below her carefully-arched brows, is both a showstopping glam moment and an easily-achieved trend sure to be everywhere this winter.

Next, it’s time for the star of the show: Nyong’o’s eye makeup. Barose takes his time to prep the lids as well with a coat of Lancôme Prime It Boost It. “This is my go-to for events and perfect for the holiday season when your eyes are the focus, Barose shares in a press release. “The primer is colorless so helps intensify shadow and is a great base for jewels and accessories.”

After lining the upper and lower lash lines with a deep brown pencil — “wing it out for extra ‘90s drama,” Barose instructs — apply a bronze shade all over the lid and then “add the rhinestones in the negative space below the brow and lid to accentuate the curve of the brow and lash line.” Finish the eyes with …….
