Lupita Nyong'o may impress us with her red carpet style game, and it’s not only beautiful gowns and dresses that she chooses, she always perfects her make-up look too.
The actress was recently unveiled as Lancome’s latest ambassador and it’s a perfect fit because she doesn’t stick to the tried and tested looks, she goes out of her comfort zone with bright and bold colours.
She told HELLO! magazine: "My relationship with make-up is similar to my relationship with food: I like to experiment and it depends on what I'm in the mood for.
"Generally, for every day, I opt for light pink and plum glosses. In terms of lipsticks, I like burgundies and earthy tones.
"I also like to play with bright colours - especially for the red carpet."
The 31 year old reveals her go-to look to help ensure that you steal the limelight, she explained:
"Lipstick is a great way to bring a whole outfit together or quickly feel dressed up... If I'm feeling bold and don't mind the extra attention. I brighten it up a little more and go with a matt texture."
But despite her love of attention-grabbing shades, Lupita says that her day-to-day look is low maintenance in comparison.
She said: "I'm very low maintenance. On a regular day I wear lip gloss and balm because it's easy to throw on. I'll define my eyebrows and depending on how much time I have, will put on eyeliner and mascara."
And when it comes down to skincare, there's one particular oil that she likes to use to nourish her skin.
She told Harper’s Bazaar: "Avocado oil is a big thing for me. I discovered it last year, and at first I was using it just on my body, but then I realized it works on my face, and my hair too, for that matter! It's a one-stop shop. Especially in the wintertime, when my skin is drier, it really seeps in and leaves it nice and lush."
