Apart from being one of our favourite Nigerian celebs killing it in Hollywood, Insecure star Yvonne Orji has also become one public figure we constantly look forward to seeing on and off the red carpet. Her fashion is usually next level – but her makeup and skin are hands down #goals!
In this new feature on The Zoe Report, Yvonne reveals her beauty aesthetic includes a variety of protective styles, a sweep of under-eye liner, or a dash of sheer lipstick.
According to her: “My desire is to leave the house with my skin looking flawless without makeup. I haven’t fully accomplished that — but I’m getting there.”

Skin: Black Girl Sunscreen
This doesn’t have that white residue. Sometimes you can look like Casper the Ghost with sunscreen on, because it never blends… and when it does, it looks like you have baby powder on your face. Not sexy. We want to prevent ourselves from getting skin cancer, but still… We were doing an episode of Insecure, and someone asked what I wanted to pack. This [was my first answer].”
Skin: Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops
Anything Drunk Elephant is my best friend. It’s so moisturizing!
Skin: L’Oreal True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer
This helps me look like I have nothing on. I mix it with the D-Bronzi, and it literally looks like I’m sun-kissed.
Skin: Lush Sleepy Body Lotion
I like the brand’s bath bombs, too.
Skin: Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
When you feel a pimple coming out of nowhere, you gotta grab this.
Makeup: MAC Cosmetics Lipglass In Lowcut
It’s a perfect brown and gives a nice pop. In the summertime, if you want to go out and get a little fierce, it’s perfect… and for winter, too. Really every season.
Makeup: Anastasia Beverly Hills Jackie Aina Palette
Jackie is a good friend. Anytime I see her face, it’s all compliments — I’m like, ‘Your skin is glowing, you’re amazing!’ We’re like two ships in the night, and I’m always like, ‘Jackie, I need to get a tutorial from you. Sit me down and teach me your ways like a sensei.’
