Zoe Saldana 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Movie star Zoe Saldana lands a lucrative deal as the new face of L’Oréal Paris. Over the weekend, the mega beauty brand announced that the Avatar actress will take on the responsibilities as their new celebrity spokeswoman.

Saldana, 33, jumped right into her new role, gushing to PEOPLE on the trial-and-error of finding your perfect shade and how every woman, regardless of her skin tone, can rock a sexy red lip.

“In the years I’ve been on this planet, I’ve grown to believe that every woman on this earth can rock a red lip,” she says. “It doesn’t matter how big or how thin their lips are, how dark their skin is, or yellow or light or pink, there’s so many shades of red, you can find the right shade. Women just look so beautiful and powerful when they’re wearing red lipstick.”

As far as her new gig goes, Saldana says, “It puts the stamp on, like, ‘Congratulations, you’re finally a real woman!”

Zoe joins the likes of Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez, both of whom have been repping L’Oréal Paris for quite some time.
