After last year’s symbolic black taking over the red carpet in solidarity of the Time’s Up movement, the 2019 BAFTAs were a riot of colour in comparison and the celebs definitely didn’t disappoint when it came to their hair and makeup.
One of the red carpet winners last night was Lucy Boynton, the star of Bohemian Rhapsody. We caught up with her makeup artist, Jo Baker, to get the low down on that show stopping look, which Jo defined as a "dramatic power mood."
Lucy has been tearing up the red carpet rule book during an incredible awards season and there was no stopping her taste for experimentation last night, as Jo revealed, "I created with bold berry and aubergine-shading around her eyes with pops of antique gold with a fishtail shadow effect creating a statement shape! Lucy wanted something very different for today's look! Leaning into daring and exciting tones."
With natural skin seeming to be the red carpet trend of 2019, skin care was the key foundation to Lucy's look, as Jo revealed. "I prepped Lucy's skin using Weleda Skin Food. For a super rich and immediate glowing complexion, this works great under foundation. I wanted Lucy's skin to be beaming with a champagne glow so I mixed Lancôme's Custom Drops Liquid Highlighter into Teint Idole Ultra Wear Nude Foundation and added more on her cheek bones for extra shine."
What's the trick to those amazing eyes, I hear you cry? "I applied Lancôme's Le Monochromatique Spring Collection Eyeshadow in Rouge A La Folie throughout the crease then applied the Brun Captivant Ombre Hypnose Stylo along her waterline, smudging it underneath her lash line and outwards creating a fishtail-shaped edge and then finished with lots of the Hypnoses Doll Eyes Mascara."
Lips wise, Lucy went for matchy-matchy with her gown. Jo said, "I used a muted and soft berry toned L'Absolute Gloss Cream in Clair Obscur which was applied and worked into a dry lip. No prep first enabled me to embed the hue into Lucy's lip to which I then tissued off and repeated for a soft-stain finish."
Strap yourselves in for the ultimate eyebrow advice from Jo, too. "On Lucy's brows I applied Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Dip in Taupe to fill in at the outer corners then I groomed them on top with Lancôme's Brows Sourcils in Blonde to keep her brows looking full but not too heavy - a great trick for natural blondes who have dark brows and want to experiment with brow tone without reaching for the bleach!"
