L’Oréal Paris has named actress Aja Naomi King its newest spokeswoman. One of Hollywood’s top ingenues, the Yale graduate and  “How to Get Away with Murder” star attributes her love of beauty from a young age to her mom.  “Growing up, I watched my mom apply her makeup in the morning and wanted so badly to be part of that daily ritual with her,” she said.  “Seeing how much she enjoyed putting makeup on, including her go-to L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour, inspired me to love makeup as much as she did.”

In her newest role, King joins an esteemed roster of spokeswomen including Julianne Moore, Eva Longoria, Elle Fanning, and Camila Cabello, among others, in representing the brand.  She will serve as a presenter at L’Oréal Paris’ Women of Worth celebration on December 6, 2017.  “Makeup became my armor growing up,” King confessed. “It provided me with a sense of protection and gave me the power and confidence to face the world in the way I wanted. To now represent L’Oréal Paris is incredibly overwhelming. I am so excited to help others find and believe in the beauty of who they are because everyone deserves to know their own worth.”   (more…)
