Lupita Nyong’o just walked the ‘Star Wars’ red carpet with a shocking bold blue lipstick! But was the beauty force with her? Keep reading for more on her colorful lip choice, and let us know if you loved it or loathed it.
Lupita Nyong’o, 32, showed off a totally unique beauty look at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens European premiere in London on December 16. Instead of sticking to the classic red lipstick look she sported earlier in the week at the LA premiere, Lupita went for bold blue.
Makeup artist Nick Barose was behind Lupita’s latest look, sharing the how-to for what he calls his “metallic galactic blue lips” creation to his Instagram. Instead of applying a lipstick, Nick revealed that he actually mixed a few eye makeup products from Lancome with a lip balm to get the R2-D2-blue shade.
If you love the blue lipstick look and want to try it out for yourself, Nick said that he mixed Lancome’s Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner in Minuit and Lancome Color Design Sensational Effects Eyeshadow in Sapphire Lace with Lancome’s L’Absolu Rouge Base.

To balance out the bold lip, Nick kept Lupita’s eye makeup more simplified, lining her upper and lower lashline with black eyeliner and joining the lines at the outer corners. Nick worked in a bit more metallic with a shimmery silver eyeshadow shade that he blended across her eyelids and at the inner corners of her eyes as well as along her lower lash line.
Vernon Francois was on hair, completing Lupita’s beauty look with an afro-style bun that was accessorized with a black veil to match the mesh detailing on her her skirt.
