Elle Fanning isn’t afraid to take beauty risks. Pastel pink hair, glitter tears, and hairstyles featuring exposed bobby pins are just a few of the actress’s myriad of beauty looks that proved she was the obvious choice to join Blake Lively and Jennifer Lopez as one of the faces of L’Oreal Paris.

Since kicking off her new role with the beauty brand at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Fanning hasn’t fallen short on delivering major beauty moments. Case in point: Her latest look on the Festival’s 70th Anniversary screening red carpet will convince you to give your go-to black eyeliner a much deserved break.

Fanning’s cobalt blue eyeliner was drawn on with a bold line along her lash line which was extended out into a graphic wing. The rest of her makeup was kept clean with groomed brows and a nude-pink lip, and her hair blown-out straight with a deep side part. The colorful liner was a cool contrast to Fanning’s princess gown with embroidery that looked like it was painted with Monet’s signature brushstrokes. If you want to try your hand at similar winged liner, we recommend a gel pencil like L’Oreal Paris’s Silkissime Eyeliner in Cobalt Blue ($8; target.com) which will glide on smoothly.

If you’re like us, Fanning’s cat-eye has finally convinced us to reach for a colored eyeliner this summer. The Best Eyeliners for Your Eye Color

The way an emerald green shade accentuates hidden gold flecks in blue eyes is proof that sometimes opposites do attract. Courtesy

A contrasting metallic like copper will pick up the gold flecks in blue eyes and really brighten them up. Keep the line close to the lashes, or take a bold turn by covering more of the lid for night. Courtesy

As far as color matches go, green and violet can’t be topped. The purple accent will enhance the eye’s earthy green hues without looking too audacious. Courtesy

Since red complements green on the color wheel, the reddish undertones of a copper liner will look gorgeous on a set of green eyes. Courtesy

A jet black liner can have a flattening effect on light eyes. Instead, elevate your green peepers with a brown shade that’s a touch softer, but still impactful. Courtesy

Gilded eyeliner will boost the green tones in hazel eyes. For a radiant look, add a touch of gold liner to the center and inner corner of the eyes to really make them sparkle. Courtesy
