This Is the Exact Lipstick Shade Lupita Nyong'o Wore To the 2018 Governors Awards
In case you missed it, Lupita Nyong'o's arrived at the 2018 Governor's Gala in a striking, stark-white, 1920's style Tom Ford gown, but what made the look even more eye-catching was the electric purple lip she paired with it.
Creating Nyong'o's lip look wasn't born from just a few sweeps of a lipstick. First, a layer of Drama Liqui-Pencil ($23) — yes, eye pencil — in Ampoule (a creamy deep purple shade) was drawn across the actress's lips as a base. Then, Rouge in Love Lipcolor ($29) in Violette Coquette (a satin plum with blue tones) was sweeped above it, topped with a L'Absolu Lacquer Gloss ($26) in Positive Energy (an electric purple gloss).
It seems simple enough, but if you wanted to take the 3-step process down to a 1-stepper, we have pulled together some of the most dazzling purples lipsticks to recreate the look.
