Awkwafina may be full of jokes, but her beauty look at the Crazy Rich Asians L.A. premiere was pure sophistication.¬†The actress swapped in her Versace co-ordinates and Ellen DeGeneres-style pixie blonde wig, worn in the film by her wealthy character, Peik Lin, for a pale-pink, long-sleeve Reem Acra gown, David Webb jewelry and¬†Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. The ensemble was complemented by long, wavy, brunette tresses and a bold makeup look, courtesy of artist Kirin Bhatty on behalf of Dior.¬†The rapper’s premiere look may be in stark contrast to her character’s, but the inspiration behind it aligned¬†well with one of the film’s themes: cultural empowerment.¬†“I was really inspired by the color red as it is very important in Asian culture, and it’s always been very important to me as a South Asian woman,” said Kirin in a press release. “I thought that putting this look together in this way was a beautiful way to honor it.”¬†

While the makeup artist used two Dior 5 Couleurs in Flirt and Thrill to create a blush-tone pigment on Awkwafina’s eyes, her lips were made to match the star’s satin clutch and the statement red bow on the back of her gown.¬†To get this vibrant-but-not-overwhelming shade, the makeup artist layered four products together. The pro first moisturized the lips with a¬†raspberry-hued balm, then topped it off with a matte red lipstick, followed by two long-wear lip tints, Dior Addict Lip Tattoo in Natural Cherry and Natural Berry.¬†The result? A premiere-worthy pout that looked stunning and meant something. We’re thinking it would look pretty stellar with Peik Lin’s blonde wig, too.¬†“I had [the wig] lit on fire and burned,” Awkwafina said jokingly to E! News.¬†
