Oscar-winning actress, Lupita Nyong’o is on the latest cover of Lucky Magazine. In a chat with the magazine she revealed that she doesn’t find makeup necessary, though this is mainly due to her mother’s strict rules. She admitted she wasn’t allowed to wear makeup while growing up. She said:
“My mother has never ever worn a drop of makeup in her life — not even at her wedding. 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.
“My mother didn’t think makeup was necessary, and I don’t think it’s necessary. 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.”
