One more thing to add to the résumé.

While it would be easy to rhapsodize endlessly about how amazing Zendaya looked at the Oscars last weekend — Valentino separates? On a red carpet? On the ultimate red carpet? — she shared one more detail that has fans loving her look that much more. According to Popsugar, Zendaya let her go-to artist have the night off on Sunday and she did her own makeup. Twice.

"Every now and then I do my own beat," she wrote on her Instagram Stories. Like her unexpected two-piece outfit, her makeup was a departure from the usual red-carpet looks, too. Instead of red lipstick and a cat-eye, she worked her magic and arrived with a silver smoky eye, brushed brows, sweeps of bronzer, and sheer lip gloss.

But she kept going. When she arrived at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party, she swapped her crop top and skirt for a tailored hourglass suit from Sportmax. She did her makeup for that, too.

"And then I switched up the eye," she said of her second masterwork of the night, which included darker metallic shades at the inner and outer corners of her eyes. Being that she's a Lancôme ambassador, it's safe to say she reached for the French line's products to get both looks.

Zendaya's stylist, Law Roach, spoke about their relationship before the Oscars. While the star is adept with a makeup brush, she probably won't be calling in couture anytime soon — and why would she when she has Roach to help out?

"[We reflect] all the time. I think one of the reasons we do that is we have the opportunity to talk about how grateful we are for the way things happened and the way things are happening to us in our careers," Roach shared with the Wall Street Journal. "Our relationship really, really grew into more family. We've been together for so long. I think she's watched me grow up, and I've watched her grow up and go from a girl to a woman, and it just feels easy and right, like my sister."
