The young poet is literally glowing likely thanks to a combination of amazing skin-care products, expert makeup skills, and genetics. Gorman’s makeup is fairly minimalist with her dewy base, a simple cat eye, and arched eyebrows. On each cheekbone and the inner corners of her eyes, you can spot some flecks of shimmery highlights that give her this gorgeous golden glow. Ahead of her speech, Gorman gave us some close-up shots of her makeup, which coordinated quite nicely with her gem-encrusted mask. 

Though we don’t know the exact products she used, the Milani Cosmetics Baked Highlighter in Champagne D’Oro is a great option for recreating that gleam.

Plenty of folks rushed to Twitter to offer their praise for the performance and the look. Twitter user @loveg0dherself tweeted, “Ok, Amanda Gorman! Braids fresh, makeup glowing, poetry beautifully written. I can’t help but stan.” There’s even some intergenerational stanning happening, too. Bolu Babalola aka @BeeBabs remarked how her mother recommended she recreate Gorman’s look. “My mum is now telling me I should do my makeup like Amanda Gorman,” Babalola tweeted. That’s just two of the many other tweets complimenting Gorman’s words and overall look.
