The Euphoria star paired her flapper-style gown with a soft purple eyeshadow that extended past her temples, along with a pop of pink blush for a modern touch to the ’20s-era ‘fit. Still, she topped it off with retro-style thin brows.

To go along with her sequin ‘fit, Lipa wore a metallic purple cat eye (naturally) at the Frieze and Versace event in London. She wore her hair slicked back in a high pony so her makeup could do all the talking.
When doesn’t J.Lo bring her beauty A-game? The answer is never. During Milan Fashion Week, the star’s braided updo, fierce eyeliner, lip gloss, and glowy highlighter were absolute perfection.
