Here's something that's perfectly fine to steal from Lupita Nyong'o (paws off the actress' awards show dresses). If makeup-obsessed girls want to try the poppin' blue lippy Lupita wore to the London premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we're pretty sure it won't land you behind bars.

On Wednesday, Dec. 16, the 32-year-old Oscar winner stepped out on the red carpet wearing an appropriately spaced-out look. Particularly captivating were her spectacular hairstyle, her scene-stealing metallic Proenza Schouler peplum dress and her impossible-to-miss lipstick, which wasn't really lipstick at all, Lupita's makeup artist Nick Barose told US Weekly.

"The key to making the look daring yet sophisticated was breaking the rules to get the lip right," Nick said. "We played with [eye] shadows to get a blue shade that was deep and rich, but not overly edgy."

Even if you're lazy AF when it comes to makeup application, Lupita's blue-lipped look is pretty simple to achieve. Nick tells US Weekly that he used Lancôme's Absolue Nourishing Lip Balm Honey-in-Rose, lined her lips with Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eye Liner and topped the look off with the magic ingredient: Color Design Sensational Effects Eye Shadow in Sapphire Lace.

With the holiday season upon us, perfecting the red lip is a must, but Lupita's chic, blow-us-away blue lips will definitely help a girl stand out from the crowd.
