The Oscar winner's striking face has landed her a beauty campaign with Lancome

Sorry #LupitaforMac warriors. Lupita Nyong’o is the official Brand Ambassadors of Lancome. How’s that for her first beauty campaign?

It was only a matter of time before a cosmetic company scooped up the flawlessly skinned, striking, confident 12 Years A Slave actress. Lancome made sure to grab her as the face of their brand before another beauty company did.

Her Lancome deal follows her Miu Miu campaign and a major Academy Award win. Not bad for a Hollywood newbie.

Lupita is overjoyed to join Lancome. In an statement she said:

“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.”

The 31-year-old joins Lancome beauties Julia Roberts, Emma Watson and Kate Winslet. Shot by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the first campaign ads will run this summer.
