Lupita Nyong’o Becomes The New Face Of Lancome

It doesn’t just end at the Academy Awards for highly acclaimed actress Lupita Nyong’o. She’s also making her mark in the beauty department as well!  This September Lupita will be the newest face for the legendary French makeup, skincare, and fragrance house Lancome.

Whether she’s rocking a bold and vibrant lip or a deep smoky eye, Lupita certainly knows what it takes to maintain her beautiful and flawlessly looking red carpet skin.  As we all know Lupita is one to look out for in the acting world and she’s now become what many people would call today’s definition of “modern beauty.”



Her first campaign ad for the makeup powerhouse, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, will debut this summer. “What appealed to me about Lancome is that they’re not dictating what beauty is… And for the consumer at large, I think Lancome has a range of products for every woman, and I think having me will expand people’s understanding of, hopefully, what Lancome stands for, who Lancome is for” she told Women’s Wear Daily. Lupita will join A-lister Lancome ambassadors Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet, and Penelope Cruz as the newest ambassador for the brand.  Move over ladies, there seems to be nothing that the lovely Lupita Nyong’o cannot do!
