Aja Naomi King Shares What It's REALLY Like Working With Viola Davis
From the outside looking in, you might assume that Aja Naomi King knows all too well about living the glamorous life in Hollywood. The actress stars alongside Viola Davis in Shonda Rhimes's hit series How to Get Away With Murder and recently landed a huge new beauty deal as the face of L'Oréal Paris True Match Foundation — a big f*cking deal, if you ask us.
But like many women of color, her road to success didn't come without some lessons. We had a chance to sit down with King, and she told us everything from what it's really like working with Viola Davis to her biggest fear in coming to work as a black woman and what she'd like to see change in terms of inclusivity in the beauty industry. Luckily, we also got the scoop on her skin and makeup routines — because, hello, have you seen that beautiful melanin complexion?
