Daniel Kaluuya Rocked Fenty Foundation at The Oscars & We Wish Our Makeup Looked That Good

Since the 2018 Oscars, we’ve all been attempting (attempting) to recreate Tiffany Haddish’s iconic three-peat dress with the only white dress we own. However, you’ve probably been recreating the dozens of looks from the talented women of the Oscars, when undoubtedly, some of the Oscar-nominated men should be your real makeup inspo. Not only did Daniel Kaluuya educate a reporter about her insensitive comments, but he also rocked Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r foundation at the 2018 Oscars—because there’s nothing that Kaluuya can’t do.

While Glossier stole the spotlight at the Oscars with the company’s new Lidstar, we couldn’t help but notice Kaluuya’s poreless complexion on the red carpet. Though Kaluuya might have been glowing from his Best Actor nomination for his performance in Get Out, as well as his more recent role in Black Panther, Harper's Bazaar explains that Kaluuya donned Fenty Beauty’s Pro Filt’r Foundation to help complete his look at the Oscars. (After all, Fenty Beauty can put any look together.)

Amber Amos, Kaluuya’s makeup artist and groomer, explains to Teen Vogue, “Daniel is so low key [when it comes to red-carpet makeup] that every time the goal is to perfect the skin and make him look less tired than he is, because he's doing a lot.”

Aside from being ~just like us~ non-famous people, Amos says that skillfully mixing shades 480 and 490 in the Pro Filt’r foundation helps execute the goal of looking less tired. (Can Fenty Beauty also make us feel less tired?)

Before Amos applied Kaluuya’s foundation, she had to prep his skin because nobody can get enough of a good skincare regime. “The most important part is skin prep and making sure his skin is very hydrated because realistically most guys aren't prepping their skin, and they don't really have a routine," Amos tells Teen Vogue.

Teen Vogue reveals that Kaluuya’s look also included Paula’s Choice Lip & Body Treatment Balm, Kiehl's Ultra Oil-Free Toner, and Kate Somerville's Clinic to Go Resurfacing Peel Pads before applying Kiehl's Facial Fuel Eye De-Puffer and moisturizer. Honestly, we’re jealous of that that Oscar-ready beauty routine.

According to Teen Vogue, Amos’ goal was to make Kaluuya glow. “That's the most important thing; I want him to go out there and be golden. I want him to glow,” Amos expands.

Clearly, Amos achieved that goal, because Kaluuya’s Oscars glo-up is real:


While we’re still a bit bitter that Kaluuya didn’t win Best Actor (especially since the winner of the category, Gary Oldman, has done some problematic things), clearly, Fenty Beauty should have gotten an Oscar nomination for helping everyone look flawless.
