Just wanted to post about how excited I am that Lupita Nyong’o is the newest face for Lancome as announced by her on Instagram and confirmed by Lancome Paris, on Friday.  Academy Award winning, Lupita, joins younger acting colleague Lily Collins as the faces for the French beauty line, Lupita being the first-ever black ambassador. If you are wondering, Lupita will be featured in the September ads, so be on the lookout!

To me this is such a huge deal because it definitely speaks volumes for embracing ALL SORTS OF BEAUTY!  To have a woman of a darker complexion be the face of such a prestigious makeup line is good news for all of us “different” women.  Now if only I could get Lancome to sign me as their Latina ambassador!   🙂

#LupitaForLancome is a thing IRL. Such a beautiful and sophisticated woman, the perfect essence of what Lancome represents in the beauty industry.  Congrats Lupita!
