Nicole Richie's Golden Globes Blue Eyeshadow Is A Red Carpet Hit (PHOTO)

Here's why.

I gotta give it to Nicole Richie. The 31-year-old socialite turned fashion designer made a bold beauty move at the Golden Globes. She paired a sparking blue Naeem Khan dress with ... sparking blue eyeshadow.

While many women shy away from the classic shade in fear of looking like Mimi from "The Drew Carey Show," Richie looks brilliant in blue. So what makes it work?

By keeping the shimmering blue shadow on her eyelids (and not brushing up into the brow bone), it makes this look fresh and modern. Richie's top lashes coated in layers of mascara, deep purple eyeliner along the lower waterline and pale pink lipstick add the perfect finishing touches. Plus, it doesn't hurt to have a sun-kissed glow that accentuates those honey-blonde waves.
