The Oscar-winning actress spills her makeup and skincare secrets
When it comes to beauty tips, we trust the woman who nabbed the title of People magazine’s ‘Most Beautiful Woman’!
The talented Lupita Nyong’o (who was also recently named a spokeswoman for Lancome) sat down with Redbook to dish about her skincare routine and makeup favourites – and as you can expect, the star has plenty of great advice to share.
According to the magazine, Lupita’s makeup remover of choice is also something you might find in your kitchen – avocado oil!
The moisturising treatment – like many other face-friendly oils – works a treat at taking off makeup and can be helpful for those with dry skin as well.
Lupita follows this up with “a light cleanser” and some eye cream before finishing things off with the Lancome Genifique serum.
Lupita turns to celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose to help her get red-carpet ready, but for everyday she goes for a defined brow paired with neutral eyeshadow.
Her other makeup essentials? Plum blush – which gives her “a healthy look”, and lip balm, “because you can just grab it and go”.
