    Gugu Mbatha-Raw is a name that should probably already be on your radar. If you haven't seen Belle — and thus, the actress in all her gorgeous glory — then we suggest you catch her in the upcoming flick Beyond the Lights, in which she plays a musician confronting the hardships of newfound fame. Trust us: Mbatha-Raw is the kind of beautiful we're going to be talking about for a very long time.

    This is why it's not even a touch surprising that her glam guru is none other than Nick Barose, the celebrity makeup artist responsible for Lupita Nyong'o's killer beauty during her entrée into a very successful awards season. With Barose's help, Mbatha-Raw has been acing fresh-faced, super pretty looks on the red carpet for about a year now.

    This weekend, the two were practically inseparable on a day of back-to-back appearances, during which he transformed her daytime-dewy look into Sophia-Loren glamorous in 15 minutes. Sound familiar? Here, Barose breaks down exactly how he achieved this feat, so you can finally pull off that day-to-night thing the magazines always talk about like an actual A-lister.
