Recent, the Kenyan-Mexican star, 36 is named a Beauty of the Year and she shares she used to be tomboy as a kid. She said,
“My parents did not emphasize gender norms. I loved climbing trees and getting dirty outside. I also enjoyed playing tricks on my family—I still do!”
The actress also added, she has some advice to her 15-year-old self:
“I would tell her to dance like no one was watching, enjoy boredom while she can and continue to stand for what she believes in.”
“I would also tell her to listen to my mother and moisturize!”
As for her current beauty regimen, Black Panther actress prefers to keep it simple when she is off camera.
“I really appreciate taking the opportunity to let my skin breathe. I love a nice moisturizer or face oil, a little eyeliner, a light application of lengthening mascara, and a hydrating lip stain.”
Lupita chooses what best works for her skincare. “I hydrate, exercise, prioritize my sleep and moisturize.'' She added, she never goes sleep with makeup on instead use avocado oil to take off makeup.
