The Lancôme ambassadress arrived at the South African premiere of Queen of Katwe in a beauty look that featured gold dotted brows with a subtle smoky eye created by her makeup artist, Nick Barose. Barose has been Lupita’s go to beauty guru ever since her first red carpet appearance and he always hits the mark with fresh, innovative looks for the actress.
