Lupita Nyong’o doesn’t depend on make up for beauty

Brad Pitt’s latest crush reveals her beauty secrets

Lupita Nyong’o, who made her debut with Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave, says beauty goes beyond make-up for her. Not only has the 30-year-old displayed incredible style choices throughout awards season, her beauty choices have been mesmerising too – the blue and purple eye make-up at the 2014 SAG Awards was undoubtedly an eyecatcher.

But the actor has said that she doesn’t rely on make-up to make her feel beautiful, reports “If a girl wants to wear make-up 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 make-up to feel beautiful,” she said. Describing her regimen for her skin, she said: “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.”
