Sydney Sweeney knows how to work with metal. The “Euphoria” star (and self-taught mechanic) coordinated her silver eyeliner, cracked mirror nails, and metal corset for the GQ Men of the Year Awards on Nov. 16 in London.
With the help of celebrity makeup artist Melissa Hernandez, who also did Sweeney’s makeup for her GQ cover, the star took winged eyeliner up a notch. On top of a classic black wing, Hernandez layered a reflective silver liner that complemented the metallic tones in the rest of the look. The rest of her face was kept natural to allow the chrome details to be the centerpiece, and added a matte-mauve lip to contrast the shine.
For her nails, Sweeney tapped celebrity manicurist Zola Ganzorigt, who as you might have guessed, also did her nails for her GQ cover. Ganzorigt created “cracked mirror” nails, as named by the artist herself, to put a fun twist on the chrome nails trend. The interweaving black and chrome colors of Sweeney’s outfit were mirrored by the actor’s black nails layered with jagged shards of reflective metal. The metal-esque appliqués added dimension to Sweeney’s look.
Between Sweeney’s upcoming role as a space-adventurer in Barbarella, her GQ cover-shoot atop a motorcycle, and her behind-the-scenes hobby as a mechanic, we will probably be seeing a lot more metal-inspired looks from the actor.
