The Uzo Aduba Beauty Routine: Easy, Peasy

Written by Bryce

Uzo Aduba, winner of the best outstanding performance by a female actor in a comedy series award at the 22nd SAG Awards in LA, has possibly the easiest and chicest makeup look ever. 

“The look is my version of modern roman royalty,” explained makeup artist Janice Kinjo. “I started with Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing and Radiance Masque to brighten and hydrate her skin. After washing it off, I used Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate and sealed it with Kiehl’s Ultra Deep Moisture Balm to add hydration to her skin. It made her skin so supple and dewy.” Her entire look was centered around great, radiant skin, glowing eyes, and her natural mega-watt smile.

“I was inspired by Uzo’s goddess-like emerald green dress so, I swiped Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in #6 just to have a hint of green on her eyes. I smoked it out with Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow in Matte Black, and then filled in her eyebrows with MAC Eye Brows in Stud. I finished with Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara. On her skin, I used Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #10 to highlight, BlackUp Foundation in HC12 to contour, and set it with BlackUp’s Loose Powder in PL14.”

Seriously gorj with that mermaid-like emerald green dress, right?

“Since there was so much color on her eyes and dress, I decided to keep her lips neutral pink and used ColourPop’s Chilly Chili matte lipstick.” And now we want to wear this whole look everywhere, red carpet or not.
