The editorial starring Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o for Glamour US showcases a variety of ways to embrace vibrant makeup in a subtle way for the upcoming spring weather. Although it could be argued that it is very similar to the Kenyan beauty's ESSENCE Magazine March 2014 editorial, the looks are much more approachable. Yet they still reflect how versatile black women can be when it comes to cosmetic hues.
Lensed by photographer David Slijper of CLMUS, the editorial starring Lupita Nyong’o for Glamour US was captured in studio. Her looks were perfected by makeup artist Christian McCulloch and fashion editor Melissa Ventosa Martin, who complemented the beauty direction with an equally bright wardrobe.
