Lupita Nyong'o Has Us Ready for Spring on the Cover of Lucky Magazine



Lupita Nyong'o glows on the March cover Lucky Magazine. The fresh-faced beauty is outfitted in Balmain Paris two-piece multi-colored ensemble. Can we talk about her perfectly teased afro?

The Lancôme ambassadress shares on her style inspirations, the awkward moments of being famous and self-confidence.

She reveals lessons learned from being banned from wearing make-up:

“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.”

On self-doubt, she shares:

“Do I still hear it once in a while? Only on a daily basis,” she says with a laugh. “It’s not a voice one should get rid of. It keeps you in check. It focuses you. You just have to manage it and not let it get stronger than the voice that says ‘You can do this.’ ”
