Last night Uzo Aduba made history (along with Viola Davis!), winning an Emmy for her role as "Crazy Eyes" in hit show Orange is the New Black—in a drama series this year, comedy series last year. Her acceptance speech was no short of epic, left tears in everyone's eyes, and the actress, of course, looked stunning while doing so.
Makeup artist Janice Kinjo (who is also a regular in Mindy Kaling's glam squad) used all SheaMoisture Cosmetics products on Aduba, creating a Grace Kelly-inspired makeup look for the star. To achieve that classic beauty look we're all after, Kinjo gave Aduba's skin a natural, flawless finish and accentuated her long lashes and beautiful brows. See below for the evidence of Aduba's dewey, glowing skin.
Kinjo started with SheaMoisture Sheer Liquid Foundation in Montego Toffee ($13.50, target.com) to highlight key areas like Adudba's under eye area, t-zone, and bridge of the nose. She then applied the same product in the Ka'u Brown Blaze ($13.50, target.com) for a light contour before blending the two shades together and adding the Shea Moisture Wet/Dry Pressed Powder in Yala Golden ($13.50, target.com) to the highlighted parts of the face and SheaMoisture Perfecting Face Powder Duo in Deep ($12, target.com) to the darker contours of the face. For blush, Kinjo opted to use the Lip/Cheek Balm ($4.50, target.com) as a base and added the Mineral Blush in Annecy Maroon ($5.50, target.com) on top for a rosy flush.
Kinjo gave Aduba the perfect, subtle smoky eye using the brown shade from the Rich Earth Palette ($22.50, target.com) on the lid, the Wet/Dry Eyeshadow in Claudia ($4.50, target.com), and the Wet/Dry Eyeshadow in Cassandra ($4.50, target.com) to add some shimmer in the inner corner of the eye. The Lengthening Mascara ($8, target.com) pumped up the volume of Aduba's lashes in a serious way.
Now, if you're wondering what shade gave Aduba's lips that natural, effortless look—the search is over. Kinjo used the SheaMoisture Lip Crayon in Calixta ($9, target.com), completing the look and accenting her incredible Jonathan Cohen gown.
Excuse us while we casually re-watch Season 3 of Orange is the New Black today at the office and stop at Target over our lunch break to scoop up her beauty look.
