Lupita is on the cover of Lucky magazine and she is talking about her relationship with makeup. Her mom did not allow her to wear make up and she isn’t alone, many of us were not allowed either.
She says the fact that her mom was so strict has given her a better relationship with makeup, where it is not a crutch but rather just an accessory. Read below:
My mother has never ever worn a drop of makeup in her life — not even at her wedding,” Nyong’o said.
“Honestly, my mother’s outlook was hard for me to take when I was a teenager and wanted to experiment. But in the end I appreciated it, because today I can look in a mirror with no makeup on and love myself.” ~ Lucky Magazine
“My mother didn’t think makeup was necessary, and I don’t think it’s necessary.” she said. “It’s an accessory. It’s as necessary as a pair of earrings, if you know what I mean. It’s something I do to adorn myself. I don’t do it to hide myself.”
Gosh she is beautiful!
