The New Face of Beauty

tumblr_n3j4sk8mau1spu77ko1_500everyone meet the new face of lancôme,
lupita nyong’o.
ya’ll know i stan for this one heavy-like.
i am so happy for her.
check out a quick video lancôme posted…

“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.”

459shit all this time i thought lancôme was for older snow bunnies.
who knew it had something for the sistas as well?
this is another quote from wwd (women’s wear daily):

“I had to give a speech about beauty right before the Oscars, and for me, beauty is a compassion for yourself and those around you. And I think that in focusing on that, the light inside illuminates the beauty outside. The idea that Lancôme now has a few actor ambassadors is significant because actors are not just faces, they are spirits that people enjoy and relate to more than in an aesthetic way. We have the privilege of standing for something other than just looks.”

REIGN DOWN ON EM LULU!!!!
