Now that all of the heat waves, heat domes, and humidity traps are over (hopefully?!), we can finally think about upping our makeup game again. Sure, eyeliner in 120 degree weather is possible, but it's also possible that it will end up in your eyes and/or all over your face. And let's be honest, there are few things worse than watery eyes undoing all of your makeup.

But now that we're moving on to cooler days where sweat does not drip off our faces within two seconds of stepping outside, we're ready for some risks, and Lupita Nyong'o and her makeup artist Nick Barose just gave us the perfect look to copy. If nothing less, it's an excuse to test out something other than your standard black eyeliner pencil.

This actress has been known to take major beauty risks (still thinking about that blue lipstick at the Star Wars premiere), and they always pay off. Case in point: this white matte eyeliner that is giving us major spacey and 1960s vibes. Luckily, Nick shared a quick how-to, including the exact products he used to create Lupita's makeup.

The show-stopping pencil used for the look was Lancôme's Drama Liqui-Pencil in French Lace ($23; We imagine using this gem of a product is just one of the many perks of being the face of Lancôme.
