Beauty News: Lupita Nyong'o Breaks into The Beauty World (Finally!)

It was only a matter of time before Lupita Nyong’o broke into the world of beauty. The Oscar-winning actress has been taking the red carpet by storm this year, knocking out one jaw-dropping, rule-breaking beauty look after another. Which brand was lucky enough to snag her? The 12 Years a Slave actress took to Instagram early this morning to announce she’s been tapped as the latest face of Lancôme.

“I am particularly proud to represent [Lancome’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,” Nyong’o says.

The actress joins A-listers like Kate Winslet, Julia Roberts, and Penelope Cruz as a face of the French brand, giving a fresh jolt to the iconic label. We can’t wait to see what they do together!
