You’ve probably seen melanin pop before, but have you seen skin radiate like Lupita’s? Aside from totally slaying every fashion look, the Black Panther actress’ beautify skin is always show-stopping.
In a recent interview with Refinery 29, the Oscar winner she revealed she is on team short hair, don’t care – and, we adore her for it.
“I love being able to put braids in. That is something I really missed when my hair was too cropped to have them. To be able to get twists or cornrows or box braids — I love that versatility. But, I must tell you, I do not enjoy having long hair otherwise. I much prefer having it short. A cut is always flirting with me every morning.”
With a kicking style and a truly gorgeous beauty, Lupita encourages “naturalness” with her looks. It’s like she’s indirectly telling you to work with what you have, to achieve the elegance you want and deserve! Beauty is everywhere and in everyone, the bold actress never fails to exude that in all her wholeness.
