Insecure’s Issa Rae is the New Face of CoverGirl Cosmetics
Issa Rae is the latest celeb to be tapped to be the face of CoverGirl.
The “Insecure” actress happily announced the news via social media.
“In all my awkward, black years I never imagined I’d be a @COVERGIRL! SO honored & SO excited,” she wrote. She joins the likes of Rihanna, Zendaya, Queen Latifah and more gorgeous women of color who have collaborated with the line.
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.”
No word on when Rae will begin shooting her print, television and digital ads.
