Lupita Nyong’o dishes her beauty secrets


Thanks to her incredible stylish outfits and daring beauty looks, Oscar award winning Lupita Nyong’o’s name has been on everyone’s lips.

The latest face of Miu Miu campaign says that she doesn’t rely on make-up to make her feel beautiful. In an interview with Glamour she shares: “If a girl wants to wear makeup to boost confidence, why not? [But] I’ve worked hard to feel beautiful in my natural skin. Personally, I don’t ever want to depend on makeup to feel beautiful.”

And it’s easy to see that Lupita doesn’t need make-up to look beautiful either, thanks to gorgeous glowing skin.

Lupita revealed to the magazine that when it comes to her skin: “I love using natural oils. I use avocado oil and Hawaiian kukui oil on my face. I like to keep things natural, simple, and straightforward.”

And the secrets to her red-carpet look? “I love color. I’m enjoying trying all different shades. Make up isn’t something I’ve worn a lot of in my life. So it’s good to work with someone like [make up artist] Nick Barose, who is inspired by my complexion and knows how to work with it.”



But her ultimate style tip (and believe us when we say it’s not entirely glamorous) is circulation socks. “On a very practical level, I’ve learned the importance of circulation socks [for planes]. I had this awful experience of getting off a flight to go to an event and my feet had swelled. Try getting into heels then! So you put on the socks for the flight, then you can wear whatever heels you want.”
