Lupita Nyong’o Talks Not Being Allowed to Wear Make-Up, Discusses Beauty With Lucky Magazine


Lupita Nyong’o is looking fresh faced and colorful for Lucky’s March 2015 issue, she talks not being able to wear make-up when she was younger.

Lupita tells Lucky Magazine:

“My mother has never ever worn a drop of makeup in her life — not even at her wedding,” Nyong’o said. The only access the Star Wars actress had to makeup came courtesy of an aunt, who occasionally snuck in the beauty goods while her mother was out. “Honestly, my mother’s outlook was hard for me to take when I was a teenager and wanted to experiment. But in the end I appreciated it, because today I can look in a mirror with no makeup on and love myself.”


She added:
“My mother didn’t think makeup was necessary, and I don’t think it’s necessary.” she said. “It’s an accessory. It’s as necessary as a pair of earrings, if you know what I mean. It’s something I do to adorn myself. I don’t do it to hide myself.”


Nyong’o even dished on her favorite beauty product. “I always have a [LANCOME] Lip Lover, in one shade or another, in my purse,” she said. “They just add a little bit of szoozh. I’ll choose the color depending on what I’m wearing and how much tint I want.”

Lupita is looking so flawless….. Spring is so around the corner…
