“Who says you can’t do bright eyes with bright lips?” said Lupita Nyong’o’s makeup artist Nick Barose of her bold, primary color makeup, inspired by a Warhol of Elizabeth Taylor, at an event this week. We couldn’t agree more. We love the idea of color blocking your makeup, but if you’re not as brave as Nyong’o, try Pat McGrath’s more subtle version as seen at the Prada Fall 2014 runway show. 
 
“In a way, that red lip, black mascara, blue eyeshadow is the beginning of makeup, isn’t it?” McGrath told Style.com. “There’s something quite powerful about that on a face that’s so full of character and womanly.” 
 
Blue eyeshadow paired with red lips has officially won us over. If you’ve got the guts to try the look, here are some products to add to your shopping list.
