Aja Naomi King has a new exciting role. The How to Get Away with Murder star joins the L'Oreal Paris family as their newest spokeswoman.
King is the latest actress to be a part of an incredible roster of women who've had the pleasure of embodying the iconic beauty brand. Julianne Moore, Eva Longoria, Elle Fanning, and Camila Cabello are some of the actresses who have represented L'Oreal Paris in the past.
"Makeup provided me with a sense of protection and gave me the power and confidence to face the world in the way I wanted," King shared in the brand's official announcement.
King's New Role
This is King's first time as an ambassador for a major beauty brand, but her obsession with makeup goes back to childhood. The actress' love for beauty sparked when she watched her mother apply makeup every morning.
"Seeing how much she enjoyed putting makeup on, including her go-to L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour, inspired me to love makeup as much as she did." King recalled.
King's L'Oreal Paris campaign will feature a collection of five products that are designed to create an effortless and luminous glow. The Liineup of products include: Glotion Natural Glow Enhancers, Glow Nude Palette, Shimmerista Powder, Glow Boosting Drops, and Bronze it Bronzer. The products arrive just in time for winter and retail at $14.99.
"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," King in a statement.
King will be starring in the upcoming biopic, A Girl from Mogadishu, as a Somali activist Ifrah Ahmed. The film shares Ahmed's journey from a refugee camp to Ireland where she becomes devoted to eradicating female genital mutilation.
The actress' work includes starring in ABC's hit drama, How to Get Away with Murder, as well as the films: The Birth of a Nation and The Upside. King has been on HTGAWM since the series premiere in 2014. The series also stars Tony-winning actress, Viola Davis.
The Birth of a Nation was released in theaters in January 2016 and is a dramatization of Nat Turner's life and the rebellion he led. The Birth of a Nation was directed and produced by screenwriter, Nate Parker. The Upside is a comedy that follows the relationship between a billionaire and an unemployed convict who is hired to help him. The film is set to hit theatres in March 2018.
