It was just a few days ago when Lupita Nyong’o first shocked fans by rocking bloodred contacts to a London premiere of her new film, Us, directed by Jordan Peele. Now, she’s gone and done it again — this time for an appearance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert Monday night. However, round two involved yellow colored contacts rather than the red pair she wore to the previous event and, quite frankly, we can’t figure out which ones are creepier.
Naturally, when Nyong’o posted photos, fans went wild over the anything-but-ordinary eye look, which certainly seems to be related to the aforementioned thriller flick she stars in (out this Friday). “Keep your eyes Jordan Peeled,” the actress captioned one Instagram post, which showcases her staring directly into the camera with bright-yellow, snake-like eyes. The comment section was flooded with messages from fans both confused and in awe.
As for the rest of her beauty beast, makeup artist Nick Barosekept it minimal to let the focus be on the contacts, and paired it with a hot-pink lip that perfectly matched her powerhouse pink ensemble. For the star’s hair, Vernon François simply straightened and slicked it to one side. The overall look was mesmerizing — haunting even — and we can’t get enough.
