Issa Rae is the new face of Covergirl!!
The star/producer/writer of HBO‘s Insecure confirmed the news with a beautiful Instagram post on Tuesday!
Sharing a shot from the ad campaign, the 32-year-old posted:
I remember being an awkward black girl in high school, reading the pages of my favorite magazines, casually flipping through @COVERGIRL ads, singing their slogan in my head. Never EVER in my life did I imagine I’d be one. I am SO honored and SO excited for what├óΓé¼Γäós to come.

Covergirl sounds just as excited about their new spokeswoman, as they gushed about Issa on social media as well:
“@issarae YES, you better believe it beautiful, the secret is finally out and we couldn’t be happier! YOU ├░┼╕ΓÇÿ┬Å├░┼╕┬Å┬╜ ARE ├░┼╕ΓÇÿ┬Å├░┼╕┬Å┬╛EVERYTHING ├░┼╕ΓÇÿ┬Å├░┼╕┬Å┬┐ and we are so honored to welcome you to the #COVERGIRL family! ├░┼╕ΓÇÿ┬╕├░┼╕┬Å┬╛├░┼╕ΓÇÖΓÇ╣ #COVERGIRLMADE”
And in an official statement, the Los Angeles starlet revealed how proud she is of this new partnership:
“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.”
Hopefully it’s not long before we get to see more of the shoot and a full commercial!
Maybe they’ll even let her write it…
