Cosmetics brand Lancome has recently launched their newest ad campaign starring Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o. The stunning 31-year-old actress is shown rocking a red lip, the line’s L’Absolu Rouge in the shade Rouge Amour #160. Shot by fashion photographer duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, she is laying on a bed of pink, purple, and red roses, while wearing a magenta dress.
“Working with Mert and Marcus was a lot of fun. They were very precise, very specific about what they wanted, but they did it with such a joy,” she said in a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot.
“Makeup for me is like the frame of an art piece. Wearing lipstick makes me feel well-dressed.”
In the behind the scenes video, Lupita shares a few of her favorite Lancome products, which are the Rouge Carrousel for lip color and The Teinte Idole foundation.
