lupita nyong’o is the new face of Lancôme

Lupita-NyongO-BellaNaijacongrats and much love to our darling academy award winner lupita nyong’o for becoming the new face of lancome cosmetics. al jazeera america reports lupita will be the brand’s first black model (yes, we’re still having these type firsts in 2014).  let us pray to the photo shop gods that she’s allowed to authentically represent brown skin — without the beauty industry’s standard skin lightening technique for brown skin models.
