10 Times Lupita Nyong'o Matched Her Eyeshadow to Her Dress, Inspiring Us All to Be a Little More Color Conscious

I was a big fan of Lupita Nyong'o's recent look at the Golden Globes. That purple floral Giambattista Valli number was just perfect on her, and the styling was on point as ever. Even more than the dress alone, I especially loved her chic round frames, and her carefully coordinated purple eyeshadow.

It's not the first time she's matched the eyeshadow to the couture — in fact, it's a look she rocks quite often. She's not afraid of some color risk-taking when it comes to her shadow, and she's rocked every hue from burnished gold to bright turquoise. Let's take a look at her best ensemble/eyeshadow matches!

This Suno jumpsuit was pretty divisive, but I think everyone can agree that her eye makeup game is on point.

This one’s a little more subtle, but if you look closely, her metallic green cat eye coordinates very nicely with her Antonio Berardi shift dress.

Well, to be fair, she could have worn just about any color and it would have matched this particular dress. That said, the silver and black smokey eye is the perfect accompaniment for her crazy-pants Chanel concoction.
