Spied in a new ad for beauty brand Lancome, gorgeous actress Lupita Nyong’o stuns in shades of red and purple to front the Spring’15 promotion for the Grandiose mascara and Colour Design eyeshadows.
Lensed by top photographers Mert & Marcus, brand ambassador Lupita just shines in hues from the new “Bright Eyes” collection, rocking a pretty, sheer blusher, glossed red lip and wash of “Jacaranda Bloom” on the eyes – the same shade the star rocked to the Golden Globes this month, developed in collaboration with her makeup artist, Nick Barose and named by Ms Nyong’o herself.
Barose told InStyle Magazine;
“I designed the colour palette, and Lupita named it “Jacaranda Bloom” after the jacaranda tree’s gorgeous electric purple flowers.
It has three purple shades you can mix and match, and the navy-plum shade on the bottom is perfect for lining the eyes.”
The makeup talent went on to add;
“If you have dark skin, the golden bronzy shade on top is the perfect highlighter colour.”
We at SPICE have loved every one of Lupita’s ads since it was announced she’d front Lancome last year – the first black actress to become an ambassador for the brand.
And, with this new shot selling the colour purple to us like nobody’s business, we can confidently say Nyong’o’s new Spring’15 ad for Lancome is officially on our beauty inspiration board for the new coming season – see it below and let us know if it has you hooked, too;
