Lupita Nyong'o beauty looks

1. Lupita’s mini-Mohawk and striking blue eyeliner work perfectly with her flawless skin and nude lips. We love this edgy style on her!
2. This interesting eyeshadow and lipstick combo gives her complexion a warm glow, and we love the cute bun-inspired hairstyle.
3. We love Lupita’s bright red lip and subtle smokey eye – it screams sex appeal.

    The first look is amazing. The blue eye liner just pops!

    I agree in that the second make-up look doesn’t really do her natural beauty any justice. My fave is number five. The bold pink stands out great against her skin tone.

    Not feeling the second look. It’s confusing and I think the stylist tried a bit too hard to be ‘different’.

    She is beautiful but what I love most about her make up is that the lip statement says it all. It’s important to know how to balance lipstick colors with the type of make up applied. If one could master that then you can never go wrong as you can see how stunning she looks.

    She is obviously not afraid to rock a bold colour and rock it she does. I like that it’s balanced where either the lips or the eyes are bold and not both. That would look clownish.
