Posted Wednesday June 25, 2014 1:35 PM GMT

She’s been super excited about her new gig as the face for Lancome, and Lupita Nyong'o just couldn’t wait for her fans to see her new print ad.

Rather than letting the cosmetics company handle the debut, the “12 Years A Slave” star uploaded the image to Instagram on Tuesday (June 24).

Along with the stunning shot, Lupita added the defiant caption, “The secret I never intended to keep.”

Of her Lancome ambassadorship, Nyong’o told Vogue, "It’s not about conforming to an already established idea of what is beautiful, and I like that ... I am particularly proud to represent [Lancome's] unique vision for women and the idea that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman’s freedom to be herself."
