Lupita Nyong’o in “The Perfect Canvas” for Essence Magazine March 2014 issue.

Lupita On Cutting Her Hair: I didn’t always wear my hair short. In my adolescence I always had long hair and it was relaxed. After the age of 19 I just got really feed up with going to the salon and it taking so much effort to look presentable before you leave the house. So one day I decided to cut it off and my mother was unamused. But she came around.

I decided to try Nude’s that are a variation for everyone’s lips. From pinker, to brown ones. And also lovelies who are on the darker , lighter, or inbetween. Neutral ones for people’s undertones. I hope this helps immensely. Enjoy Lovelies
