Ruth Negga has just made it 100% ok to bring blue eyeliner back from the nineties

Break out the pencil sharpener, gals!

RUTH NEGGA’S BIG night is looming as she prepares for her first Academy Awards as a big name nominee.

She’s up for Best Actress for her role in Loving, and has been getting her her red carpet practice all week in preparation for the big night.

Last night she styled the hell out of a Delpozo frock on the Independent Spirit Awards red carpet, but it’s her eyeliner that we’re most interested in.

Makeup artist Mélanie Inglessis went for bright blue glitter eyeliner, giving comfort to every single one of you still harbouring a blue pencil in the depths of a makeup bag somewhere.

And as if that wasn’t enough style for one day, Negga then did a quick change into a cream Chanel number for an official Chanel dinner.
