Lucy Boynton’s Oscars 2019 look: Everything you need to know to re-create her dreamy, romantic makeup
Catapulting into stardom as Mary Austin in the award-winning Bohemian Rhapsody, Lucy Boynton is one to watch according to various cinematic circles — and amongst beauty ones, too, what with her latest string of stunning red carpet looks. Her 70's inspired, gravity-defying liner at the SAG awards literally took our breath away, as did her devastatingly chic tousled bob at the Golden Globes.
The Oscars was no exception. Boynton arrived in rose-toned makeup and old Hollywood glamour curls, as if Grace Kelly wandered into a Rose de Mai garden — at least, according to her makeup artist, Jo Baker.
That's not all the celebrity makeup artist divulged, though. Below, a complete guide to re-creating Lucy Boynton's super dreamy, romantic look.
The dewy-fresh skin
On Lucy's fair, sensitive skin, Jo used the Chantecaille Magnolia Jasmine and Lily Healing Emulsion to moisturise. She then moved on to prep the lips with the Weleda Skin Food Lip Balm, and used the Chantecaille Gold Energizing Eye Recovery Masks to brighten and refresh eyes before makeup application. The final step? A spritz of Chantecaille Pure Rosewater.
The rose-flushed cheeks
Jo opted for the Chantecaille Future Skin in Porcelain for Lucy's foundation, and applied it gently with a brush — as an ode to her original training as an artist. This is done in an effort to "focus on glowing skin, and to add color without adding too much."
Under the eyes, around the nose, and anywhere that was a bit red, Jo applied the Chantecaille Le Camouflage Stylo in Shade #1, a fair neutral shade, before moving on to an illuminating finishing powder. The Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder in Candlelight was used and dusted all over the face, cheekbones, nose, and collarbone.
"This is a dream. I have been waiting for a product like this forever. A powder that isn't too powdery, with sparkle that doesn't sparkle too much. It added a dreamy haze to the skin. I lavishly applied everywhere," remarked Jo, before she added the Chantecaille Philanthropy Cheek Shade in Bliss to Lucy's cheeks. A light pink shade with soft rosy undertones, it is "just delicate enough to be read as blush, but not too pigmented on the skin. It is the perfect amount of powdery pink without a hint of over-application."
The enthralling eyes
Jo started Lucy's soft, dreamy eye look with a bit of Chantecaille Philanthropy Cheek Shade in Bliss for a wash of color. "Pink eye shadows can read very heavy, but blush is a perfect way to play around with pinks on the eyes," she noted, before reaching for the Chantecaille Mermaid Eye Matte in Sylvie. The gentle brown was applied to the inner and middle eyelid.
She also chose two shades from the limited edition Chantecaille Polar Ice Eye Palette to give dimension to the lids. She used a shimmering rosy peach and an iridescent lilac pink from the bottom left corner, finishing with the golden peach Chantecaille Luminescent Eye Shade in Sole. This brought the colour below the eyes rather than using a liner, especially when applied with her finger. The Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara was brushed on Lucy's long lashes for elegant length.
The versatile lip
When it came to choosing the lip color, Jo picked Chantecaille Lip Chic in Wisteria, a soft wearable plum shade with purple undertones that would complement both Lucy's eyes and dress.
The final touch
Jo sprayed the calming and refreshing Chantecaille Pure Rosewater on Lucy's shoulders, and finished it off by brushing it in Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder in Candlelight. "This was the perfect combination to hydrate, smell yummy, and keep the HD Perfecting Powder in place all night," she explained.
