In a statement to Vogue about the look, Nyongo’s makeup artist Nick Barose explained, “We wanted to avoid pretty red carpet looks and be more experimental, taking wicked beauty ideas from fierce women in 80’s music videos who really played with makeup that echoed their strong powerful attitude.”
Nyong’o stars opposite Winston Duke and Elisabeth Moss in Us, a mystery thriller that follows a family of four whose beachfront vacation is terrorized by a group of doppelgängers. Us arrives in theaters on March 22nd.
