Lupita Nyong’o is the new face of Lancôme
It was bound to happen, but we’re so glad the wait is over! Our over-the-moon girl crush, Lupita Nyong’o has finally settled on a beauty contract and the winner is Lancôme. The Oscar-winning beauty has officially signed on as the face of the iconic French makeup, skincare and fragrance house, with her first campaign set to launch this summer.
Nyong’o breathed new life into the red carpet season with her knack for donning bold color and print, and fearlessly doing the same with her makeup—violet lipstick, cobalt blue eyeliner and a peachy rouged cheek—and don’t get us started on her flawless short cropped hair. She’s as natural in the role of beauty ambassador as she is on film. Paired with her humor, vivacity, and as evidenced by her Oscar acceptance speech, kindness of heart, Lupita’s star turn with Lancôme is a welcome, newsworthy turn this Friday.
