Zoe Saldana Is the New Face of L’Oréal Paris


Sorry Blake, you’re no longer the newbie. L’Oréal Paris announced its latest leading lady – Zoe Saldana!

People broke the news early Friday, and Saldana couldn’t be more excited about her new beauty gig. “It puts the stamp on, like, ‘Congratulations, you’re finally a real woman!” she told the glossy about joining the ranks of Blake Lively, Julianne Moore, Lea Michele, and Eva Longoria. “To be a part of a company that literally has as its main prerogative to uplift women and to give them permission to want to be beautiful but also access to them doing things for themselves is very powerful.”

Though the Rosemary’s Baby actress opts for classic looks like a quick cat eye and red lip for the red carpet, her regular routine just takes 10 minutes with a dab of the brand’s True Match Foundation where it’s needed, loads of mascara, and a swipe of the crimson color. Her sense of beauty has strong family ties, as her mother and grandmother weren’t afraid to experiment with their looks while always remaining true to themselves. “My mother was a youngling of the 70s, there was always extraordinary and extravagant eyeshadows,” she explained. “My grandmother was all about red lips. I was always liking my femininity, surrounded by women who were very elegant, true ladies but also a little wild.”

While the details of her upcoming campaign are currently under wraps, we can wait to see the strong star shine on the small screen and in print.
