For makeup, Nyong’o worked with Nick Barose, who was inspired by groundbreaking artist Josephine Baker. He used Lancôme products, including a touch of green eyeshadow as a nod to his “Black Panther” character Nakia, who wears lots of green and dark red lipstick and lip liner. Nyong’o called on hairstylist Vernon François to have her hair done in a loc crown.

In addition to his role in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, Nyong’o is in pre-production for “A Quiet Place: Day One”.

“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is the sequel to 2018’s “Black Panther.” The film is part of Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The sequel stars former cast members Danai Gurira, Angela Bassett, Winston Duke, and Letitia Wright, as well as newcomers Tenoch Huerta and Michaela Cole.
