How to Wear Silver Makeup Like Lupita Nyong’o at the ‘Star Wars’ Premiere

How's this for silver lining? The force was strong with Lupita Nyong'o this week, as she lit up the red carpet at the world premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Monday, December 14, in L.A.

The Oscar winner, 32, dazzled in a glittering, crystal-encrusted Alexandre Vauthier couture gown, which she paired with Chopard baubles. The finishing touch? Red lips and soft silver shadow on her lids.

Silver makeup can be tricky to wear, but this isn't the first time Nyong'o has pulled it off. Earlier this month, the 12 Years a Slave star modeled bright silver eyeliner at the Star Wars Force 4 Fashion launch in NYC.
