CONGRATS! Issa Rae Is The New Face of CoverGirl
Issa Rae confirmed that she landed a major beauty campaign as the new face of CoverGirl cosmetics via Instagram. “In all my awkward, black years I never imagined I’d be a @COVERGIRL! SO honored & SO excited,” she wrote. The Insecure star will be joining other CoverGirls like Queen Latifah, Rihanna, and Janelle Monae and more other women of color.
In a statement, Rae said, “My character is ever-evolving, and makeup is a tool to help transform my persona – whether for a role I play in content that I produce or the different roles I take on in my life. Becoming a COVERGIRL means a lot because the brand recognizes just how important it is for people to embrace their individuality and express themselves in unique and diverse ways. This has been a major part of my personal journey, and a message that I want to share with others.”
