Hollywood newcomer Lupita Nyong'o is known as much for her terrific fashion sense as she is for her superb acting skills. The 12 Years A Slave actor says she likes to experiment with her looks, and not stick to a particular style.

The stunning actor said she likes playing with bold eye shadow colours and lipsticks when she steps out on the red carpet, reported Contactmusic.

"My relationship with make-up is similar to my relationship with food: I like to experiment and it depends on what I'm in the mood for. Generally, for everyday, I opt for light pink and plum glosses. In terms of lipsticks, I like burgundies and earthy tones. I also like to play with bright colours - especially for the red carpet," she added.

The 31-year-old actor added that a vibrant lip colour is the perfect way to steal the limelight.

"Lipstick is a great way to bring a whole outfit together or quickly feel dressed up... If I'm feeling bold and don't mind the extra attention. I brighten it up a little more and go with a matt texture."
