We can all agree on one thing: Lupita Nyong'o can pretty much do no wrong. Acting, fashion sense, natural hair hottakes, searingly intelligent op-eds — she's got it all covered. One of the many arenas in which she excels happens to be the realm of colorful eye makeup. With eyeliner and eyeshadow colors ranging the full ROYGBIV spectrum (and then some), she's about as adventurous as they come — and she nails the look every time.

From her iconic teal eyeshadow look from the 2014 SAG Awards to the saturated green eye makeup her character Nakia sports in the casino scene in "Black Panther," Lupita's adventurous color palette continues to reign supreme. Need proof? Let's take a look at some of her top makeup looks over the years.
