Lancôme releases its behind-the-scenes film featuring new ambassador Lupita Nyong'o on set of her 'joyful' new campaigns...

As previously mentioned, Hollywood darling Lupita Nyong'o is the latest beautiful face to front French authority in the field, Lancôme. The Oscar-winning actress has brought a certain 'joie de vivre' to the project, made clear by the release of a behind-the-scenes film – shot on the sets of Nyong'o's two new advertising campaigns.

Working with photographers Mert and Marcus "was a lot of fun," Nyong'o explains in the film. "They did it with such a joy and you want nothing but to help them accomplish what they're doing, and it's so easy to trust them."

A girl after my own beauty heart, it's the subject matter that Nyong'o seems pretty thrilled by too: "make-up for me is like a frame of an art piece," she says.

It concerns two campaigns; L'Absolue Rouge lipsticks (the campaign which she shares with fellow actress Penelope Cruz) and Teint Idole Foundation (the campaign which she shares with Daria Werbowy, and currently displayed in the US only but soon to be revealed worldwide), and the actress was keen to share her personal beauty tips for both.
