Lupita Nyong'o Wows in Blue Lipstick at Star Wars Premiere

For die-hard Star Wars fans, this evening will be remembered as the night before the release of The Force Awakens. For beauty fans, however, December 16 will be etched into our minds as the night Lupita Nyong'o won at lipstick.

The actress—who plays Maz Kanata in the film—took to the red carpet at the European premiere with a full-on blue lip look and it was incredible. Read on to find out how to re-create the out-of-this-world look.

Her makeup artist Nick Barose described the lip shade as a 'metallic galactic blue' on his Instagram account (you'd be wrong if you thought it was the same blue as a lightsaber—sorry, not sorry). Of course, Nyong'o is a Lancôme ambassadress so Barose had to get a little creative with the products. To make that futuristic blue shade he mixed Lancôme DramaLiquid Pencil (£16) in Minuit and Color Design (£14) in Sapphire Lace with a lip balm. These products aren't available in the UK but you can recreate the look using Ombre Hypnôse Stylo (£20) in Bleu Nuit and Anthony Vaccarello Hypnose Eyeshadow Palette (£38) in Blue Mania. As far as the rest of the makeup goes—a glowing complexion and soft smoky eye were all that was needed.
