Lupita Nyong’o has risen to fame since her role interpretation in the film '12 Years A Slave' in which she played the character, 'Patsey' and going on to win the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress.
She recently shared her reason why she does not wear any make up, saying her mother was the main reason she keeps it natural at all times.
"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 I 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."
Known for her natural looks, she has set records as the winner of the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, becoming the sixth black actress to win the award, the first African actress to win the award, the first Kenyan actress to win an Oscar, and the first Mexican to win the award.
