Everyone is aware of that the Oscars purple carpet is an area for celebrities to look their absolute most glamorous. If my inbox on Sunday evening was any indication of the dozens of press releases rigorously detailing each celeb’s look right down to the bobby pin, magnificence is an enormous deal for this occasion. What is a bit odd although is that hardly ever do I see any magnificence breakdowns for the dude stars attending the occasion. Occasionally there is a skin-care model or aesthetician touting that they have been on deck for good-looking main man #1’s grooming, however in any other case you simply don’t hear about these dudes carrying make-up although, judging by the Getty galleries of them with nary a shiny brow in sight — I know your brow has at least been dusted with some setting powder, bro.
And then, a present from the Instagram gods got here from Fenty Beauty’s account, detailing the finest actor nominee (for Get Out, and he was robbed. ROBBED), Black Panther star, and all-around snack, Daniel Kaluuya carrying Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation: “Who said men don’t use #FENTYBEAUTY?!😏 “
Makeup artist Amber Amos used shades 480 and 490 in the Fenty basis and Kaluyya was glowing — glowing. I imply, we have all seen the beautiful Pro’filtr impact, however maybe it was the actor’s awards present power that gave him that additional little bit of je ne sais quoi.
Naturally, as quickly as this posted, Allure editors shared it in our secret Allure group chat, as one does. Digital editor Jihan Forbes’s response: “I’m in tears thinking about that rich skin being slathered in Fenty. What a time to be alive.” Everyone else, in settlement, was a collection of shocked and awwed emoji faces: 😭😭😱😵
Now, although, I’ve numerous follow-up questions: What did Amos use to use the basis? Was there primer or setting spray concerned? Did Amos try this factor that make-up artists try this I like, which is massaging moisturizer into the face earlier than making use of complexion make-up, which means that Amos bought to caress Daniel’s lovely man-face? Daniel, how does your pores and skin look so lovely? Don’t you dare say you simply “drink lots of water” as a result of I cannot have it. I have to know your skin-care secrets and techniques.
Please inform me. Please.
