Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong'o has proved yet again that she is not afraid of wearing bold colors when it comes to both style and beauty! While the actress loves to experiment, lately it seems like she's totally obsessed with a rather surprising eye shadow shade: a bright, cobalt blue.

Earlier this week at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic the star went for a more subtle take on the trend by sweeping a light wash all over her eyelid and a touch of color on her lower lashline. To make her eyes stand out, her makeup artist, Nick Barose, used minimal blush and liner, and swiped on a sheer cherry lip—understated, but so fun for a daytime look.

She pulled out the daring eyeshadow palette again at last night's CFDA Awards. Wearing a bold Suno capri pant-and-top combo, her eye makeup was matched perfectly to the blue in her outfit. This time, she applied a heavy dusting of the shadow only on the upper crease, letting it seriously pop against her skintone. Then, a light silver shade was added on both her upper and lower lids, creating contrast. Strong black liner accented the whole look.
