Following an epic red carpet run during awards season, which saw the actress experiment with a wide array of lips colours and eye shadows thanks to her makeup artist Nick Barose, I knew it would only be a matter of time before Lupita Nyong’o was scooped up by a beauty brand.
The Oscar winner has been snapped up by French giant Lancôme, joining Julia Roberts, Penélope Cruz, Kate Winslet and Lily Collins as a celebrity ambassador for the brand this September.
Of her new appointment, the ambassadress said “I am particularly proud to represent [Lancôme’s] unique vision for women and the idea that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman’s freedom to be herself.”
Lupita will be the first woman of colour to represent the French brand since Dominican model Arlenis Sosa in 2008.
