Janelle Monaé Is The Newest Face Of CoverGirl Cosmetics


Early last week we learned that P!nk was named one of the new faces of CoverGirl Cosmetics and today we learn of another celebrity spokesmodel for the brand. The absolutely amazing singer Janelle Monaé has just been unveiled as another new face for CoverGirl. Along with a couple of beautiful promo photos comes the release of two short promo videos announcing Janelle as the newest CoverGirl.

CoverGirl just announced they’ve named Janelle Monáe as their newest face, Vogue reports. Monáe’s beauty feels very natural, effortless and refreshing so it’s wonderful to see her acknowledged by the corporate beauty industry. The 26 year-old singer opened up to Vogue about her new role as spokesperson, even sharing the Covergirl products she uses on herself:

“The singer, who does her own makeup for most major performances, has already started experimenting with CoverGirl’s Lash Blast Mascara. “I keep my eyes pretty simple but I like to make [my lashes] a little darker and thicker,” she says. She’s also been dipping into the company’s highly pigmented Lip Perfection line—introduced to her by makeup artist and CoverGirl global creative design director Pat McGrath on the Los Angeles set of her first print campaign two months ago. “She’s not only one of the most talented people in the universe but she’s also one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet,” says Monáe of bonding instantly with McGrath—who provided a quick solution to her mic-swiping lipstick quandary. “She told me to do the whole lip liner thing first so that it stains my mouth and makes the color last,” she says, before adding with a laugh: “Thank you, Pat!”

Monáe looks forward to inspiring women to find their own beauty and strength, saying: “I believe in the idea of every woman finding their own beauty superpowers. I want to help redefine what it means to be a strong woman in the music and fashion worlds.”

I can’t EVEN express how exciting this news is. I have been a big Janelle Monaé fan for a very long time. I was lucky to see her perform at South by Southwest in Austin, TX a couple of years ago and I was floored by her insane talent. I also got to see her open for Prince at one of his concerts here in LA and David and I saw her on tour with Bruno Mars. She is truly one of the more amazing performers around right now. She is the PERFECT person to represent CoverGirl. Smart, talented and beautiful? What’s not to love? Plus, she looks great on video:

CoverGirl has really outdone themselves this time. I was impressed with their decision to team up with P!nk but this collaboration with Janelle has sold me 100%. Best CoverGirl EVER!

    She looks fantastic in the video but the pics are a little odd looking. It looks like they use the fuzzy Barbra Walters soft light filter on her.
