We love a little drama – the sartorial kind – on the red carpet, and we get it in spades when the likes of Naomi Campbell, Jennifer Lopez, and Lady Gaga make an appearance. And yet, there seems to be a dearth of drama on the beauty side of things.
Enter: Lucy Boynton.
Ever since her breakout role in Bohemian Rhapsody, the English actress has taken fierce lashes and statement lids to the next level on every red carpet, making her a beauty queen in our books. With the help of her makeup artist Jo Baker, the actress has yet to meet an architectural cat eye or unconventional shadow that she won’t experiment with.
But there’s a key to pulling it all off. The trick is to be methodic with the rest of your look. Baker is a stickler for well-groomed brows to let Boynton’s eyes be the focal point, and often gives her a soft pink lip – though she’s not averse to color from time to time. Throw in a gently tousled bob and minimal accessories, and the actress is red carpet ready. Reminiscent of a modern-day Twiggy, Boynton can pull off a lash overload like no other, exuding 60s vibes in the 21st century. And with those expressive eyes practically begging to be accentuated, can we blame her?
Such a fearless approach to makeup deserves a dedicated award – or at least a little attention. Here, we’re doing just that with a photo gallery of her best beauty moments, below.
