‘Orange Is The New Black’s’ Laverne Cox Shares Her Beauty Tips at the GBK Style Lounge

Laverne Cox, who is part of the strong female ensemble from Netflix‘s hit series, Orange Is The New Black, was in great spirits at the GBK Celebrity Style Lounge. Cox joined our celebrity designer Charlie Lapson to dish on her style and the products she uses to look fabulous.

Laverne began her beauty break-down by declaring, “I love drug store makeup.” She thinks when it comes to cosmetics, it’s all about a “high-low culture,” meaning you can mix-and-match products from different price ranges. The actress herself uses Dermacolor foundation, because it’s both corrective and theatrical makeup. She also enjoys L’Oreal true match powder, and, as she was using here, Dior lipstick.


The Musical Chairs actress gave a few words of advice to our viewers. She believes in loving yourself from the inside out, and being confident. Those were wise words she lives by because she didn’t let an allergic reaction around her eyes, impede her from attending the GBK Productions event. Instead, she proudly sported some chic sunglasses.

Cox, a transgender advocate, plays Sophia, a trans woman incarcerated for using stolen cards to pay for her transgender transition on OITNB. Currently she’s enjoying filming the second season and bonding with her cast mates. She even gave us a little tease on what to expect in the upcoming season, “there’s some really, really juicy stuff happening.”
