With an array of lipstick colors to choose from, sometimes we forget that a neutral-tone can be just as appealing.

At this Motion Picture Academy’s 7th annual Governor’s Awards, British actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw stunned on the red carpet, teaching us a holy grail makeup lesson: less is more. Rocking an elegant, embellished lace dress from Jason Wu’s 2016 Resort collection, complimented by rose-gold sandals, and a lady-like pink pout, Gugu was most definitely the talk of the night.

Her lipstick was one of the main highlights of her beauty look, complimenting both her radiant glow and ensemble. Gugu’s makeup artist Nick Barose shared deets on how he executed the flawless look with what he called the “ultimate movie star glamour lipstick”.

“To compliment her shimmering rose gold Jason Wu dress, we opted for neutral lips that still have a pop to it to keep it from being too monochromatic,” said Barose. “The Dolce Gabbana Sophia Loren No. 1 Lipstick is neutral with a hint of cherry red so when applied with a light touch you get a feminine color that looks glamorous.”
