Lupita New Face of Lancôme

Yes! My girl crush Lupita Nyong’o is the new face of Lancôme cosmetics. I thought Lancôme  products went no darker than beige, so it’s good to know they can promote a dark-skinned black woman:

“Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o’s breakout year just keeps getting better. The 31-year-old actress is the new face of Lancôme cosmetics, becoming the first black ambassador for the French luxury brand. I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history that I have always loved. I am particularly proud to represent its 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,” Nyong’o said in a statement.” http://time.com/49612/lupita-nyongo-becomes-new-face-of-lancome/

This is a good move for Ms. Lupita. She has shown that darker skinned black women can werk glamorous makeup too.  Dark skinned black women tend to be “warned” away from wearing certain colors. Lupita laughed in the face of folks ignorance. It’s one of the reasons why I love her. I wish her well on her new adventure!  🙂
