When Rihanna launched Fenty Beauty last year, she was clear that this was make-up for everyone, regardless of skin tone or skin type. And as actor Daniel Kaluuya proved on the Oscars red carpet on Monday night, it’s make-up for all genders too.
Make-up artist Amber Amos, who has worked with the Get Out star throughout this awards season, took to Instagram to share an image of Kaluuya at the awards, expressing her pride at seeing him “flourish and get recognised for the dope and talented WOAT™️ (Waviest Of All Time) he is”, as well as crediting Kiehl’s and Fenty Beauty for his red-carpet look. Fenty Beauty then Tweeted an image of the Oscar nominee confirming that he wore a combination of shades #480 and #490 of Fenty Beauty’s Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation, the very same foundation that sold out in its darkest shades almost immediately after launch.
And he’s not the first man to sport one of the brand’s hero products either – Ezra Miller wore a magenta shade of the Cosmic Gloss Lip Glitter to a red-carpet event last October.
The stigma around men wearing make-up may still need considerably more work before it’s fully quashed, but take a look at the pictures – who could argue with those results?
